Eli5: Why can’t we choose a specific screen refresh rate on phones?

93 viewsOtherTechnology

Why is it always 60 or 120 or 144? Why can’t I input the value I want (for example, 90 or 100 or even 87)?

Edit: FYI, my phone is a Motorola Edge 40.

I know this isn’t a helpful answer but I’m curious as to why you would want to?

I feel like for the manufacturer to allow a custom refresh rate, they’d have to give you a pretty deep level of access to the device.

60, 120 and 144 hz are standardized and I’m interested to see what others have to add because I’m not sure why. Personally my phone is 90hz and I’m pretty happy with how responsive it is
