How to keep Google Pixel 4 at 90hz Refresh Rate All The Time


One of the features of Google Pixel 4 is a 90hz Display. Google has been boasting about it a lot. However, only recently they admitted that it comes with a feature called “Smooth display”. Now you must be wondering what does this Smooth display feature actually do? To prolong the battery life on your Google Pixel 4, Google has made a system that brings down your display refresh rate to 60hz when you are not looking at it or not doing anything important like scrolling a webpage, etc. A 90hz refresh rate speeds up animations and results in a simply more smooth experience overall. However, we have come to know that by default the refresh rate stays at 60hz and occasionally cranks up to 90hz. Some might not like this, but Google did this to save battery life. Anyhow, the search giant is courteous enough to give you an option through which you can always keep the 90hz refresh rate.
