I have never thought that I needed a 120Hz screen, maybe I am too old to see any difference. I will be upgrading my XS to 13 when it will be available but I hope I can turn off the 120Hz feature to increase battery life.
Good if you watch vids on your phone.
'I am' is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that 'I do' is the longest sentence? - GC

Yea on a computer monitor it makes a massive difference in smoothness and latency with gaming where everything remains in motion. On a mostly static screen I gotta assume it uses some kind of VRR to bring the refresh rate down to save battery life like it's done on Android with the Pixel, Galaxy, etc.

I'll be buying a phone with a folding screen the day after it costs no more than other phones with similar abilities and it has been shown to have a similar longevity. In others words, probably not in my lifetime.

I have yet to see a foldable phone that was usable and made any kind of sense. I guess if Apple does one thing well, it's over-engineer the user experience so if they bother then it will probably be decent but horribly expensive. At least Apple has some semblance of a tablet market to bring to bear too. Not sure why the heck Samsung and etc were farting around with foldable phones.

Regardless I don't think it will go beyond prototype, foldable phones are too expensive, have too many design compromises and offer few benefits.
