    Does WQHD eat more battery? I want to keep it there on my s9 but not sure about the impact. Anyone know substantial proof?

    Yes. Spend a day with FHD then a day with WQHD and see how your battery compares. That's the best way to test as your mileage will be vastly different to controlled testing.
    I've tried both settings and noticed a slight battery improvement with FHD so kept with that as I couldn't notice enough difference between the 2 visually to make it worth keeping on but that's just me

    Why buy the best display available then turn down the resolution. Once you use WQHD for a few days you can't go back difference is to noticeable especially with text. I have used WQHD for a year on my S8 Plus and since day one with my S9 Plus and a few times checked the battery usage and there is no difference you can actually be 100% certain is associate with resolution.

    I can t really see a real world difference in use ability in gaming or text with HD+ over WQHD so is stick with HD+ On my s9. There is also the argument of having more processor power to speed thing up going lower res as well. But for me I’d rather save the 5 or 10 percent battery than the extra resolution I don’t notice.

    I use FHD+ simply because SwiftKey has a sizing issue with wqhd. If not for that I'd definitely bump the res

    I use WQHD. I believe it does use the battery a bit more, but it's worth it for me.

    I switched to WQHD last night and had to recharge early this evening. That hasn't happened before. I haven't noticed a big difference in screen quality either. I'll keep it for another couple days so I can get a better idea on battery life.

    To solve the problem, just restart your mobile after applying wqhd or re adjust the keyboard size

    This! I always shake my head when I read about people (not OP) that dumb down their smartphones in the name of saving the battery. Why buy a phone that has all these awesome smart features and displays and then disable everything to squeeze every bit of battery life out of it you possibly can?

    Yeh i get what your saying but some people don't notice the difference in screen quality by changing down the resolution. So if thats the case and they get better battery by lowering it then they aren't losing anything but gaining.

    I prefer WQHD, text just looks so much better and easier to read.

    It's like buying a 4K TV and turning it down to standard definition just to prolong the life of the TV.

    The difference in battery consumption between WQHD and HD is slightly under 30 minutes at 100% battery. Meaning you will save roughly 30 minutes using HD instead of WQHD.

    The difference in battery consumption between WQHD and FHD Is roughly 21 minutes at 100% battery. Meaning you will save 21 minutes if you use the FHD resolution instead of WQHD.

    Anyone with Android's Power Saving mode can check what amount of battery consumption they can save by using different resolutions.

    Simply open Android's Power Saving mode >> change screen resolution. At the bottom, the amount of time until the battery dies will change.

    Constantly having to charge = reduced battery capacity and efficiency way before it's time.

    I'm not sure how accurate Samsung's measurements are, but if true, only a 21-minute difference would be pretty cool.
    I guess the best way to judge would be to compare battery consumption after three days each on the different resolutions.

    Max resolution since I haven't seen significance difference in battery life for my use.

    +HD still saves me the most battery when I set it to +HD on Med Power Saving mode. And then WQHD saves me the least amount of time.

    Restarting does nothing, and adjusting the size isn't a big help because it just squishes things instead of resizing properly. Looks horrible and spacing between letters gets a bit weird.
