240Hz Touch Response & 120Hz Display
A big talking point for Samsung is the new 120Hz display on the Galaxy S20 family of phones. In 2019 brands like Google and OnePlus released 90Hz phones, where the screen refreshes faster than ever before.
With the Galaxy S20, you're getting a 120Hz display that refreshes 120 times per second, instead of only 60 times, making it twice as fast, fluid, and smooth. This makes a HUGE different in day to day usage, and you'll notice it immediately. Remember the first 120Hz or even 240Hz HDTV's several years ago, and how amazing sports and content looked? That's what we're getting on our phones now. Don't forget to use a screen protector.
However, Samsung made another massive leap forward with the screen on the Galaxy S20 that most people aren't talking about.
In addition to the 120Hz refresh rate, they doubled the touch response to 240Hz. Combine those two, and the Galaxy S20 screen is very fast to respond to your touch, then even faster to do whatever you asked of it. This will make for improved daily usage, better gameplay experiences, and much more. The entire phone just feels super fast and snappy, more so than ever before.
They're also HDR10+ compatible, and as usual, Samsung's best smartphone display ever made.
