    Noticed my phone was slightly choppy scrolling through some apps. So I forced 90hz in Developer options.

    Definitely much better. Outside of using more battery, is there any other issues with forcing the 90hz?

    From what I understand it's just more battery and better performance.

    I would concur. This was the same in the 4xl as well

    I ran the 4 XL on 90hz always.. I'm sure it will handle battery drain just fine

    Yeah, no other difference other than a slightly more battery drain and better performance. I just have my smooth display just turned on because I want the best battery life out of my phone I can possibly get.

    How long is your battery lasting with 90 hz forced on? Also another way I found you can save battery life which I've been doing is to turn off always on ambient display...

    Update: so I did turn 90 hz refresh rate on my phone off just to test out if I could tell the difference between hz, and 90 hz. With 60 hz I can feel the choppiness. I do notice that 90 hz a little bit more so. Honestly just thought I'd share my thoughts! Again since I'm so uptight slashing all about battery life, I would never force 90 hz on fully, but it's a nice before and after to test out.
