Last Update Date : Mar 12. 2020

Compare refresh rate

A refresh rate, also referred to as Hz (Hertz) is the number of times a display can update an image in 1 second. Most mobile phones use 60 Hz, i.e. 60 refreshes per second on your browser.


A higher Hz (or refresh rate) enables less lag and stuttering on display and faster screen response. Movies and videos with a lot of motion appear more realistic.
