With phones advancing every year with some great new tech, a new feature that started to get everyone’s attention starting last year, is the 90Hz refresh rate displays.
You might ask, what is 90hz. The refresh rate of the display determines how many times the display redraws the image on your screen. A 90Hz display redraws the image 90 times per second. The higher this number is, the smoother and better the image quality will be. A 60Hz screen which is seen on most devices, refreshes the display 60 times per second.
