    Just saw this article on how Sony manages to get good battery life from its 4K screen Z5: it displays most of the content at 1080p, with only video and images at the full resolution.

    Is such a thing possible on the G4?

    Not on stock, nope.

    I'm not sure if Sony's phone has further hardware optimization to make this happen (straight up pushing a 1080p image onto a 4k panel is still lighting up all those 4k screen pixels, just duplicating some of them in the image below), but if it does, then that wouldn't be possible at all with the G4.

    Software-wise, it is possible, in theory, to write a modification or implement it in a custom ROM.
