How to Force 120Hz on all Apps on Galaxy S22 Ultra

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra comes in with an AMOLED QHD+ 120Hz display. The 120Hz is the reason for the phone to feel this smooth as the screen refreshes twice as fast as the regular 60Hz. The Adaptive refresh rate on the S22 Ultra means that the phone can automatically switch refresh rates to save battery. But some third-party apps like Snapchat only go up to 60Hz on the adaptive mode which makes for an unpleasant experience. Therefore here is How to Force 120Hz on all Apps on Galaxy S22 Ultra.

Apps like Snapchat don’t run well on Android because they are not optimised for it. Samsung worked with Snapchat to optimise their app for the S22 series but even then the state of Snapchat on the S22 Ultra continues to be bad. The app never goes to the full 120Hz thus resulting in a choppy experience.

  7. Enter the below command:
    peak_refresh_rate

  8. After saving the changes, enter 0.1 for the second value.
  9. Reboot your Phone.

Now apps like Snapchat will run at adaptive 120Hz thus giving a smooth experience. If you want to undo the changes for some reason then carefully only delete the line of code you wrote and reboot the device and all the changes will be reverted.

But navigation apps like Google Maps will still run on 60Hz as it is known to consume huge amounts of battery and running Maps on 120Hz will drain the battery quick.

Conclusion

Here is How to Force 120Hz on all Apps on Galaxy S22 Ultra. A high refresh rate is a common feature on phones these days and makes for a smooth and snappy experience. Some apps take advantage of it but some like Snapchat have been known to not give the same amount of optimisation as iOS making it difficult to use on Android. Snapchat even removed the use of Camera API from android thus photos from Snapchat on an Android phone come significantly worse than their iOS counterparts.
