quote: It's almost hopeless trying to educate people on this stuff. Pushing a few extra pixels around has no practical impact on battery life.
quote: It's funny you throw around things like "It's almost hopeless trying to educate people on this" yet it doesn't sound like you have any actual experience in the field at all.
quote: It's funny you write all this, yet completely ignore LG's brilliant solution where the display is stored in video RAM as to prevent pointless refreshing.
quote: The "field"?No, I never claimed I design or manufacture smartphone displays!
quote: Seems you're more interested in impressing people with a bunch of unnecessary techno-jargon than addressing the crux of the issue.
quote: And to claim QHD represents a 50% increase in GPU "work" is, frankly, completely baseless hyperbole.
quote: Firstly, it's not ignoring if you didn't know about the tech (sorry if I don't spend my time knowing every feature in every phone model).
quote: No, I'm mostly interested in pointing out that you have no clue what you're talking about.
quote: Oh that's fine, but it's okay to browbeat me and claim I'm ignorant and that I know "nothing".
quote: Go f*ck yourself.
quote: I said "pushing a few extra pixels around has no practical impact on battery life".Key word: practical.
quote: Also unlike you, I'm using layman's terms for the benefit of the reader. Throwing around technojargon on a forum may make you feel superior, but it doesn't mean you're right.
quote: However despite all this, you've been unable to refute my claim because it's based on fact. There will be no PRACTICAL penalty in battery life on the G3 by going with a QHD screen.
quote: Unfortunately I don't work at Samsung, or LG, or anyone who makes phones so I can't just go take a reference model design and plug in a new display and measure the difference.
quote: Wow. That is low. So basically, you don't actually provide any facts yourself, just "trust me, there's no 'practical' difference." You're then presented with a number of factual statements about how higher resolution displays can impact battery life
quote: You're then presented with a number of factual statements about how higher resolution displays can impact battery life, and then you spin things on me and make ME the bad guy because I'm trying to "act superior"
quote: NO. You haven't provided ANY facts. Your statements are literally the opposite of based on fact. You cannot just say you're arguing "practically" and use that as an excuse to not backup your argument.
quote: Well you could have fooled me! Didn't you just disparage me for not being "in the field"?
quote: But battery life HAS improved as resolution has increased. I'm not saying "trust me", I'm saying go look at the facts!
quote: Yeah, sometimes I even impress myself. You have to admit, that was a pretty good reversal move :)
quote: OLED technology is FAR more energy efficient, especially at this large size. There's no need for a power-hog back light (the pixels ARE the light source), and unlike LCD individual pixels can be turned on or off.
