In this quick guide, we will leave steps below in order to How to Change Screen Resolution on Galaxy S8 . Samsung has been killing it lately with their Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. Both come in the same specifications, and the only difference between them is their screen sizes, and an increase of 500 mAh of battery jumping from the Galaxy S8 to the Galaxy S8 Plus.

Both the devices are this years’ flagship, and without a doubt will be getting regular software and security updates from Samsung. There have been many new features introduced in the Galaxy S8, like Bixby and Samsung DeX, which is Samsung’s solution to docking into a full windows-like experience. Something that stands the S8 and the S8 Plus apart from the crowd is their QHD Dual-Edge curved Super AMOLED displays, 5.8″ and 6.2″ respectively.

However, Samsung has clocked the default out-of-the-box resolution for both the flagships to be only FHD, and that’s probably to reduce battery wastage, since both the devices have rather small batteries for a big bright gorgeous screen and power-hungry internals. Anyhow, Samsung does let you change the screen resolution, and here is how you can do so. Without any further a due, here’s How to Change Screen Resolution on Galaxy S8.

How to Change Screen Resolution on Galaxy S8 

  1. On your Galaxy S8 / Galaxy S8 Plus, navigate to the Settings app.
  2. Scroll to find the menu named ‘Display‘.
  3. Tap on it, and search for another sub-menu named as ‘Screen Resolution‘.
  4. You will notice that the default resolution has been set to FHD+, where the plus sign indicates it is a bit taller than the native 1920 x 1080 resolution we’re familiar with.
  5. You can either downscale it to HD+, which is a bit taller than the native 1080 x 720 HD option, or you can totally go full on with the QHD+ option, being a bit taller than the 2560 x 1440 option we’re familiar with.
  6. Once done, reboot your Galaxy S8 / Galaxy S8 Plus for optimal performance.

That’s all, if you ran into any issue, then we’re always here to help!
