OnePlus mocks the 90 Hz screen of the Pixel 4

oneplus teases the pixel 4

Google recently launched its latest terminals, the Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL. One of the main improvements that these phones bring with respect to the Pixel 3 is on the screen. The Pixel 4 have a display compatible with a refresh rate of 90 Hz, although it is not working as expected.

In Pixels 4, the 90 Hz screen only work if the mobile brightness level is 75% or more. If the brightness falls below that level, the refresh rate also drops to 60 Hz. Knowing this problem, OnePlus (the brand that made these screens fashionable) has not hesitated to publish a tweet of the Pixel 4.

The OnePlus have no limitations with the 90 Hz of their screens

In the tweet published by the official OnePlus account, the company clarifies that its phones can use the 90 Hz screen with any brightness level. Not like in Pixel 4 where the brightness level limits the refresh rate of the screen.

In addition, they took the opportunity to advertise their mobile screens with the following phrase “fast and fluid at all times, under any condition". Pitifully, OnePlus deleted the tweet shortly after publishing it. Luckily, thanks to the screenshots being saved forever.

Why does OnePlus delete the tweet where it makes fun of the Pixel 4?

The company has clearly regretted what was published. And is that the screens of 90 Hz of their phones are not perfect, much less. Well Not all apps on OnePlus use 90 Hz, so many times users see the screen with a refresh rate of 60 Hz. So, the “at any time, under any condition" It is not entirely true.

In fact, the same company has suggested to users not to force 90 Hz at all times, as this refresh rate consumes a lot of energy. Therefore, it is possible that OnePlus has removed the tweet so as not to enter into disputes and so as not to make users believe that their screens are perfect. Likewise, they may have done it because they realized that it is not right to make fun of another company.

Google's response

Google has not responded openly to this mockery, but in the Android code they have revealed that AMOLED screens are not prepared to optimize the use of these high refresh rates. By consuming a lot of energy, 90 Hz should only be used when necessary. Therefore, the ideal is to alternate between 90 Hz and 60 Hz.

However, when moving from one refresh rate to another, the AMOLED screens (the ones with the Pixel 4) produce a flicker that is very noticeable when the brightness is low. Therefore, when the brightness of the Pixel 4 is at a level below 75%, the refresh rate remains invariably at 60 Hz. At higher brightness levels, the refresh rate varies between 90 Hz and 60 Hz without problems.

Anyway, tell us … What do you think about all this?
