Despite sporting a 2960×1440 display, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ ship with the screen downscaled. While this was most likely done to maintain long battery life, you can quickly change the setting to take full advantage of every pixel. Here’s how…

Steps to changing the screen resolution on Samsung Galaxy S9 & S9+

  1. Change the screen resolution
  2. Enjoy

1. Change the screen resolution

First, head into the settings menu by pulling down the notification tray and tapping on the gear icon. Next, select Display and then Screen resolution.

Here, you can choose from three different options: HD+ (1480×720), FHD+ (2220×1080), and WQHD+ (2960×1440). To get the best looking screen, select WQHD+. For the best battery life, choose HD+.

2. Enjoy

This is one feature that would be nice to see to on other flagship Android smartphones. The ability to change the screen resolution lets Galaxy S9 and S9+ owners decide if they prefer a higher-definition screen or a longer battery life.
