Advances in mobile technology are not always conspicuously visible. In the case of cameras, for example, a change can make a difference in design, and make us recognize the mobile instantly. If we talk about screens, the improvements are not found solely in resolution, size, or curvature.
But there is an aspect that for many goes unnoticed with the naked eyebut which has practically become one of the most important features when buying a smartphone, and it is the refresh rate of the screen of your Xiaomi mobile.
What is the refresh rate?
Until just a few years ago, all mobile phones on the market were equipped with a screen that, whatever size and resolution it had, did not go above 60 Hz. Today there are still some models that do not exceed that numberbut before we go up to 90, 120 or even 144 Hz, let’s see what it’s all about.
The refresh rate of the screen of a device (be it a mobile or a television) is measured in hertz (Hz), and it is the unit of average that determines how many times per second that panel is updated. Mobile phones with 60 Hz refresh rate they update their screens 60 times per second.
This measurement is closely related to FPS (frames per second), which is the speed with which frames are displayed on the screen. To give you an idea, the movies we see in the theater normally display at 30 FPS.
Returning to the refresh rate, it could be said that Xiaomi mobiles practically they have abandoned 60 Hz that they equipped a few years ago. Today, both mid-range mobiles such as the Redmi Note 11 Pro to the cheapest ones such as the Redmi 10 2022 (which costs just over 150 euros) have refresh rates of 120 Hz and 90 Hz respectively.
Why is a high refresh rate important?
As we say, the refresh rate has become a feature in a very short time almost as important as the camera or the power when choosing our new Xiaomi mobile. The experience we have with him will depend to a large extent on it.
The higher the refresh rate that our mobile has, the more fluid our experience will be. A device with a 120 Hz panel will refresh the screen 120 times per second, giving it an incredibly fast feel. in the menus and when we browse social networks.
In addition, there is already a wide variety of video games that They already work at 120 FPS, the measure that we talked about before, which takes advantage of the full potential of your mobile. With a high refresh rate and faster FPS, the chances of winning a game are much higher than those of users with 60 Hz mobiles.
Thanks to the advances in the screens, our Xiaomi phones each time have higher refresh rates, which allow a better display of contentas well as a great advantage in video games and a far superior user experience to that of mobile phones with standard refresh rates of 60 Hz.
