Here are the Top 5 smartphones with the highest screen refresh rate

Previously, high screen refresh rate was an exclusive feature which was found only among flagship devices. However, since the beginning of this year, this elusive feature is slowly seeded to more mid-ranger smartphones including the recently announced Realme 6 Pro and OPPO A92s.

As usual, technology advancement continue to push the upper limit of screen refresh rate among mobile devices as we saw an emergence of flagship phones with at least 120Hz screen refresh rate in recent months.

Surely, a high refresh rate will be able to provide a better graphical experience for its users, but this will come at the expense of its battery life. However, courtesy of fast-charging technologies, we don’t really see this as a huge issue anymore.

For those who’re interested, here’s the list of top 5 smartphones with the highest screen refresh rate which are currently available in the market.

Sharp Aquos Zero 2

Currently, the Sharp Aquos Zero 2 sits at the top of the table with a buttery-smooth 240Hz screen refresh rate. However, some may argue that the 240Hz refresh rate on its front display isn’t “true 240Hz” as half of these refreshes consist of black frame insertions between each rendering in order to reduce after image. Nonetheless, it still improves the overall graphics on the device. This device is priced at NTD 21,990 (US$731) in the Taiwanese market.
