Samsung users, what resolution do you have your Galaxy flagship set to?

Finally, Samsung said “To each their own” and just gave users three choices of resolution — HD (720 x 1080), FHD (1080 x 1920), and QHD (1440 x 2560). The best part about this is that no matter which setting you go for, the phone will always auto-switch to QHD if you happen to put it in a Gear VR set for some VR adventures.
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. So, if you own any of those, you have that option, congrats! What do you have it set to?
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?

QHD all the way on my S7 Edge. Why use crappy 1080P when the battery is just as great in QHD, these Displays are magnificent at QHD, and I have been spoilt with QHD since my Note 4, using 1080P would be a huge downgrade. Glad Samsung give us the option to choose :) unlike some other OEMs that force one resolution in the UI and another when watching video and pics, lol.

Hahah good one mate! Although the lag will still be there no matter what resolution you use. Touchwiz is just a laggy SOB but it's getting better all the time - no real complaints so far with my Exynos S8.
