EDIT: LOOKS LIKE BIXBY ROUTINES WAS UPDATED TO SUPPORT MOTION SMOOTHNESS AND SCREEN RESOLUTION AUTO SWITCHING, SO NO NEED FOR THE DYNAMIC DISPLAY APP OR ADB ANYMORE!

SETUP BIXBY ROUTINE

  • Settings
  • Advanced features
  • Bixby Routines
  • Add (+)
  • You can add an application (app opened) of your choice or whatever else you want
  • Under display you can select Motion Smoothness and Screen resolution
  • (In my case I selected Standard and WQHD+ for YouTube)
  • No need to create an exit routine, when you leave the app it will revert back to your original settings (in my case FHD+ Adaptive)

This doesn't seem to work for me. When it is supposed to switch back to 1080p 120hz (adaptive refresh) , it changes to 1080p 60hz (standard refresh).

You need to use the app that I linked. The link takes you too a reddit page where you need to get it from Github. Thats the app for the FPS. The Bixby routine is only for the resolution and only have of the steps needed.

I downloaded it the app, did the adb commands. I think I followed the instructions correctly. Still didn't work.

I've used tasker profile to simply force some apps under 60hz
https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s20/how-to/force-app-to-run-120hz-t4053133
I think adaptive refresh is not fully optimised
https://m.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_note20_ultra_5g-review-2149p3.php
and that causes the bad battery drain. Since I've implemented the tasker routine battery now drains normally. Hopefully next firmware update fixes it.
Nice, but the goal with this is to force the resolution to change from 1080p to 1440p and vice-versa. The fps is to just reset 1080p back to 120hz automatically since it defaults to 60hz when switched back.

This is awesome, thank you! Does the 96hz refresh rate work as well?

I haven't tried the 96hz personally, but I don't see why it wouldn't work as long as your in 1080p. I don't think there is an option for 96hz in the default refresh rate setting so it be per app.

You could set it and try the UFO FPS test to see if its actually 96hz.

Thats what you need the Dynamic Display app for. Bixby routines will only switch the resolution. You need to use both Bixby Routines and Dynamic Display in conjunction.

Its explained in the main post.

I can't make this work, each version I get the same result.

I have the Bixby Routine set up, which works flawlessly.

But once I exit back to system the display does drop to FHD but only at Standard (60Hz).
I have set the default Hz in the Dynamic Display to 120 Hz, and I have enabled both the WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS and the Accessibility option for Dynamic Display but still it doesn't work. :(
