How to change the screen resolution of Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra
The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra’s stunning 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display is one of the highlights of the flagship, but QHD+ resolution can take its toll on battery life.
While it’s nice to appreciate true WQHD+ visuals at full 3088 x 1440 resolution, it only really matters when playing games or watching 4K movies via Netflix. So, if you want to get the most out of the S23 Ultra’s battery, you need to change the screen resolution – the question is, how do you do that?
We’ll show you how to change the screen resolution of your Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra (and any other high resolution Samsung smartphone) right here.

What you will need:
- Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra (or any other high resolution Samsung smartphone)
- Open the Settings app.
- Tap Screen.
- Click “Screen Resolution”.
- Select the resolution you want the phone to work with.
Open the Settings app
On the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, open the Settings app. If you’re unsure, it’s a mechanical gear icon as shown in the attached image.
Once you’re in the Settings app, scroll down until you see the Display menu. Touch it.
Click “Screen Resolution”.
In the display settings menu, you will see a submenu for the screen resolution. Touch it.
Select the resolution you want the phone to use
You have a choice between HD+, FHD+ or WQHD+, with the former offering the best battery life at the expense of overall display quality, while the latter offering the sharpest images at the expense of battery life. FHD+ offers the best of both worlds, but the choice is up to you.
No. Unlike other flagship smartphones like the OnePlus 11, which can dynamically switch from FHD+ to WQHD+ depending on what you’re doing, Samsung blocks any resolution you choose in the settings menu.
The main benefit of changing the screen resolution – usually downgrading from QHD+ to FHD+ – is that it improves overall battery life. It can also improve performance in particularly graphics-intensive games, as it requires fewer pixels than at QHD+ resolution.
