What resolution would you set the Galaxy S7 / edge to when you get the updated settings menu?
So, Samsung is hard at work with the major Android 7 Nougat update for its most current flagships — the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge (sorry, Note 7, we miss you). 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 today of a new feature headed for the Galaxies — an options menu within Settings that allows the user to pick a resolution of their own choosing... well out of the 3 options, that is — HD (720 x 1280), FHD (1080 x 1920), and QHD (1440 x 2560). Of course, we've seen this menu before — FHD>HD: Note 7 may come with battery-saving resolution switch, icon pack section" class="previewtooltip" data-id="83719" data-type="article">it was on the Note 7. But its life was cut short by the minor annoyance of an exploding battery, so we didn't get to enjoy its unique features a whole lot.

But back to the S7 / edge. Word is that, currently, when you update to Android 7, the phone will default to the FHD resolution (1080 x 1920), not the full, ultra-crisp QHD. This could be an overlook with the beta, but it could also be a conscious decision on Samsung's part. We thought we'd ask — which resolution would you choose on your S7 (hey, even if you don't have one — imagine that you do and join the fun) once the Nougat update comes?

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
FHD (1080 x 1920) - I'll pick the golden middle
QHD (1440 x 2560) - I want it as crisp as possible!
Hold your horses, let me see if it affects battery life and performance in any noticeable manner
