Results: what resolution do you have your Galaxy flagship set to?
Despite the feature being 3 years old already, whether QHD is useful on a smartphone screen or not is still a highly debatable topic. At this point, those against it have begrudgingly agreed to not bring it up, as there's little sense to argue it — QHD is now mainstream. And those that are for it couldn't be happier for the aforementioned reason — most flagships have it.

Samsung, however, decided to appease all tastes and just gave users three choices of resolution — HD (720 x 1080), FHD (1080 x 1920), and QHD (1440 x 2560) — on its latest flagships. Finally, whoever feels like a low resolution could benefit the phone's performance and battery life, can go for it, while the rest are free to max it out.

The option is available on the newest flagships — Galaxy S8 and S8+ (with the + moniker due to the 18.5:9 ratio), the older S7 and S7 edge, as well as the still-not-retired Galaxy Note 5. We thought we'd ask you, assuming you own one of these, which resolution you prefer. This is how the poll went:

What do you have your Samsung Galaxy's resolution set to?

QHD(+) all the way!
FHD(+) strikes a good balance for me
HD(+) is good enough, I don't see what all the hubbub is about
Eh... there's an option to change resolution on my phone? Where's that one?
