Results: What resolution would you set the Galaxy S7 / edge to when you get the updated settings menu?
As we already know, Samsung is hard at work with the major Android 7 Nougat update for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. And some lucky users have already had the chance to enroll in a beta testing program for the new software.

It is through them that we learned of a new feature headed for the Galaxies — a resolution switcher hidden inside the phone's settings! The toggle allows users to pick one of three modes for the display — HD (720 x 1280), FHD (1080 x 1920), and QHD (1440 x 2560). Yes, we've seen this menu before — it was on the Note 7. But since it's, sadly, gone now, the S7 twins are the phones that will carry Sammy's new battery-saving feature.

So, since there are so many different people out there demanding different things from their phones, we thought we'd ask you — how do you intend to utilize this feature? Go full-out QHD, or hardware-friendly HD? Here's how the poll results look!

Which resolution would you pick on your Galaxy S7 when the update comes?

HD (720 x 1080) is enough for me and I want as little stress on my hardware as possible
7.53%
FHD (1080 x 1920) - I'll pick the golden middle
33.6%
QHD (1440 x 2560) - I want it as crisp as possible!
28.25%
Hold your horses, let me see if it affects battery life and performance in any noticeable manner
30.63%
