    Sorry if there's a thread.

    What RESOLUTION do you have your Infinity Display at, what's your reasoning for it?

    I'm at WQHD+, why?

    I spent this much on my S8 & S8+ that I want to take advantage of it. Battery life isn't a concern especially with Fast Charging.

    Left mine at FHD. You're not gonna notice a huge difference unless you're gaming on certain games. Maybe even video. But only maybe....Might as well conserve some battery

    From what I've read it's not really a 1440p display because there are not the same number of red, green, and blue pixels. It's not a true 1440p display. I keep mine at the FHD+ setting for this reason and for the small gain in battery life.

    I run it at WQHD+ also. I ran a few days at FHD, then bumped it up and really did not notice a drop in battery life.

    FHD+. Not a gamer. I notice zero difference, they look exactly the same, so why make the phone work harder for the same result? Makes no sense to me lol

    Ditto. The difference in battery was not enough to make me step back. I view a lot of architectural drawings where the resolution matters. (OK, and my movies look better too...)

    FHD. I tried the other resolutions and see zero difference. Might as well save a little battery since it makes no difference visually.

    Trying out 720 now actually to see if I can tell.

    WQHD+. Just to utilize all of the displays resolution, although I do change it FHD+ sometimes just because.

    I use FHD for normal day to day use. I don't see a difference between QWHD and FHD. Both look great.

    FHD+, I do switch to HD+ sometimes if I'm driving or somewhere I'm not going to use my phone for a while.

    I run at WQHD+, not sure how much difference the battery life is, it's a smart phone after all and is used more for the internet and apps loaded than it's intentional purpose. I do notice a difference with the display, it's more noticeable with videos and high rez photos. Basic icons will look the same since they are at a set rez. And as @bembol said I am paying this much for the phone I am going to take advantage of all it offers.

    FHD+, simply because swiftkey still doesn't look right in WQHD+.

    I'm on FHD+ as i don't do high rez stuff mostly youtube and some gaming (mostly emulators) and i barely see a difference between the 2, so unless i watch something that i know can be 2k staying at FHD since the display is bright either way and that's what i love !

    QHD. Text looks sharper to me. So does video and photo. Difference in battery seems nil. I paid for a flagship phone with QHD display. So that's what I want to see.

    I personally use FHD+ and like others see no difference. However, Its its true that WQHD doesnt affect battery life then i guess ye might aswell have it on that! Until theres proof it doesn't waist more battery, iam gonna stick with FHD+ for now

    Mine is at WQHD+ because it's required by the Gear VR. I never went back in to change it.

    WQHD+ here. Not a fan of scaling at 40%. I know that the difference isn't as noticeable (but probably more noticeable viewing photos), but the fact that it's not a 1:1 or 1:2 scaling kind of bugs me. Battery life is fine for me, lasts longer than a full work day with heavy use anyway, so why worry? If I wanted a 1080P phone I would have gotten one for less...

    I have been reading comments here and realizing that I do agree with some of the comments mentioning that if you buy a phone this expensive, you might as well put it to its fullest use. Soooooo, I just maxed out my resolution. Why in the world not?

    This is almost like covering it with a case.

    Like I said I hate how I baby my toys sometimes to only turn around and sell it not knowing it feels or in this case fully taking advantage of it.

    Has there been any actual tests done to see how much battery FHD saves? Most anecdotal feedback seems to be that any differences are minor but there surely must have been a reason why Samsung set the default to FHD+?
