Hi, first of all thanks a lot for this wonderful app, the adaptive refresh rate has easily extended the battery life of my phone and Tab by 2-3 years and now it's an actual joy to use.

I have a Galaxy Watch Active 2 (SM - R820) and I was using the camera controller app on the watch to take some pics. Problem is when I exited that app, my phone remained on 60 HZ. Had to go to GMH, toggle "enable motion smoothness" off and on for the adaptive refresh rate to work again. (Prevent switching to high mode was toggled off)

Obviously this is a very niche case and I really don't mind going to the app and clicking on the toggle everytime I use camera controller, but I was wondering if you could do something about it.

GMH - 7.14.13
SM - G985F
One UI - 3.1
One UI Watch - 2.0
Tizen - 5.5.0.2

Again thanks for all the hard work!

When I select cQHD+ .... Display settings say that my resolution is HD+ (3180*1431). Is that normal ? Thank you

To be completely honest this app save more battery during idle of the phone than in pure usage of phone
I can't see a real difference but maybe i'm doing wrong with the setup of the app i would love that someone help me to configure the app well i buy the premium version by the way

Just a little update. I submitted a PayPal dispute after the Premium activation didn't work. Instead of helping me to get this to work, I was instead called a liar. Just know that if you have any issues with the Premium version of this app, the developer will not go out of his way to help you.

FYI, I'm willing to give this developer their money back if they can actually help to fix the issue.

Hello.

I've recently reset my device and and going off the email I received when I first opted for premium advises me to press the 3 dots on the top right corner to re-activate my premium using the special code provided in the email.

However, I've noticed after recent updates that the option to reactivate is no longer an option.

Am I supposed to purchase another premium despite having the same device being reset?

###EDIT:###
Oddly after numerous restarts, cache and data clears, the options finally re-appeared in the app. Issue rectified.

Why does the screen always look blurry when I use cqhd+ especially the text, is this usual?

I use S20+ and have been updated to Android 12. There is a problem with the app, so I leave a comment.

There is a problem with the “Brightness Threshold for Adaptive” option. This option does not work as intended.
If the “Brightness Threshold for Adaptive” is set to 0-29, the "Adaptive refresh rate mode" will work normally, and if it is 30-100, the "Adaptive refresh rate mode" will not work even if the "Adaptive refresh rate mode" is set.

I rebooted the device first to fix this myself. However, this problem has not been fixed. Then I forcibly shut down the app, gave the app permission again, and eventually deleted the app and installed it again. However, despite these attempts, this problem could not be fixed.

That's how it is intended to work. Higher threshold means that screen brightness should be higher than that for adaptive to work.

That's how it is intended to work. Higher threshold means that screen brightness should be higher than that for adaptive to work.

It doesn't work even if the brightness is increased. For example, even if the threshold is set to 50 and the brightness is 100, the "adaptive refresh rate mode" does not work. The "adaptive refresh rate mode" operates regardless of brightness only when the threshold is 29 or less.

That is, regardless of brightness, the "adaptive refresh rate mode" does not operate or operates depending on whether the threshold value is 0 to 29 or 30 to 100.

I see. I'll check.Thank you.

After updating to OneUI4.0 on my S20+ the adaptive rr on power saving no longer works. It only works when the power saving is disabled. Is this also confirmed by other users?

I can confirm that. The rr stays at the lowest value when in power saving. Also I have another problem. In screen-off modes, even if I selected force lowest Hz, the screen-off refresh rate is set at 120 Hz. This appeared after the last update.

Hello, im sorry if this was asked previously but i havent been able to figure this out yet. I saw other users have a setting for 48hz on their Galaxy S20s, but mine only shows 60hz as the minimum option. I already bought premium and thought that this would fix the issue, however it did not. Id be very glad if someone could help me. Thanks

    No, it's always disabled
    I mean other than gmh.
    Like turning on power saving when batt % is below certain level
    or enabled adaptive power saving which can trigger while screen is off?
    Someone has recently reported to me the same case. I can confirm that this can cause the adaptive on PSM workaround not to work since the app is configured to be at sleep while the screen is off to save as much battery. It's unable to listen to the power mode change of the device and apply the adaptive on PSM workaround. I am now looking for a workaround for this case.

    Hello all I have a weird issue when my phone start or sometimes randomly during the day the app open twice google maps and I noticed when i switch gmh on and off the maps issue take place
    It's normal if you setup power saving mode to be automatically enabled (like when using bixby routine or adaptive power saving) - when it's triggered while the device screen is off, GMH does the google maps trick automatically when you unlock the phone to enable 120Hz on PSM.

    Okay thank you
    So if I want to keep adaptive RR i don't have other choice to let the Google map trick happen?

    About this app:
    • Refresh Rate Control: Easily control the max refresh rate (Hz) of android devices with multiple refresh rates (e.g. note20 ultra, s20/S20+/S20Ultra, z fold 2, s21/s21+/s21Ultra, tab S7/S7+, z fold 3, z flip 3). This app can limit max refresh rate to 96hz (or any available refresh rate) on supported smartphones - you can save power with negligible difference on smoothness. Use either the in-app toggle or quick settings tile - ADB setup or Root NOT needed.

    • Force High: Option to use High(Fixed) motion smoothness mode on Samsung devices with native Adaptive motion smoothness***.

    • Refresh Rate Monitor: Show real-time screen refresh rate as statusbar icon and/or as overlay. Overlay size and location is adjustable. Use either the in-app toggle or quick settings tile

    • Quick Resolution Switcher: Easily switch to any supported resolutions using the included quick setting tile***

    • Quick High/Adaptive on Power Saving Mode: Easily switch to high or adaptive motion smoothness mode (from Standard) even on power saving mode on supported Samsung smartphones.***
      Note: May not working (blocked by samsung) on some devices with OneUI4.*.
      Update: Google maps workaround implemented in v7.14.51


    • Force to Lowest Hz: Force lowest refresh rate on screen-off/AOD. This overrides Samsung's strange stock behavior which sets the refresh rate to the highest on screen off (update: it is now at 60hz since oneui3.0) - to improve standby power consumption a bit - ADB setup or Root NOT needed.

    • Auto apply power saving mode during screen-off (after ~ 10 secs)***

    • Tasker plugin support: Automate GMH settings with Tasker app. Supported actions/variables: max refresh rate, min refresh rate, keep smooth motion on PSM, motion smoothness mode, quick-doze mod, change dispaly resolution, auto sensors off. More info in FAQs below

      Premium Features:

    • Keep High/Adaptive motion smoothness when power saving mode is enabled whether manually or by the system/adaptive power saving***
      Note: May not working (blocked by samsung) on some devices with OneUI4.*.
      Update: Google maps workaround implemented in v7.14.51



    • Adaptive refresh rate mod for devices supporting multiple refresh rates but do not have the stock Adaptive motion smoothness (incuding the Galaxy S20 series,) with the ability to set the brightness threshold for its activation***

    • Quick-doze mod: Quickly enter doze mode during screen-off that can not be interrupted by motion ***

    • Override default minimum refresh rate for adaptive to lower value(if supported)***

    • Resolution switcher filter: Filter what screen resolutions to include for the resolution switcher QS tile.

    • Auto turn off Autosync: Turn off autosync settings while the screen is off.

    • Auto SENSORS OFF (experimental non-root workaround):
      Device sensors will automatically turn off while screen is off until the device is unlocked. This helps minimize battery-draining motion-triggered wakelocks while device is not being used.

    • Statusbar net speed indicator

    • 7-day Premium Trial is available. Just click "Activate Premium|Trial" button and activate free trial when prompted.

      Note: The premium license is on a per device basis.
    ***these marked features require a one-time ADB setup (this is not root)

    Info: This app targets older android sdk in order to control refresh rates without ADB setup or root. Just tap OK the dialog that says "This app was built for an older version of Android...." when opened for the first time. If OK button is not visible, just tap the blank space on the lowest portion of the dialog.

    But I am working on working around this limitation. :)
    Update: After spending some hours of research and tests, I think I now have a workaround to mimic adaptive refresh rate behavior for devices with high refresh rates like S20s. Not 100% perfect but seems working well.

    v6.62.25 now up! :)
    - Fixed crash when opening some apps in Secured Folder
    - Minor improvements on adaptive mod
    v6.62.10 changes:
    - Fixed intermittent bug on restoring power mode settings on screen-on when using quick power-doze mod



    I am getting crashes after latest update. Mostly when I switch between normal apps and apps in secure folder. The app has stopped and it closes.

    Now that I did the thing with the adb I have the same problem. Small screen flash when the rate changes.
    Yes, because you are in adaptive mode now. Adaptive is working but not the high mode. I will push an update to fix this soon.
