TL;DR
  • Some Samsung Galaxy S22 phone owners claim they have seen some issues with the phone’s adaptive display feature.
  • They claim the display goes down to a lower refresh rate after a period of inactivity, which causes video in streaming apps to stutter.
  • There’s no word on why this might be happening at this time.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 series features an adaptive display that can switch the refresh rate of the screen depending on what apps and games are being used. This is really handy and ensures you always have the best viewing experience possible. Unfortunately, there might be a bug in this feature for some S22 owners.

According to SamMobile, some phone owners have posted to Samsung’s community forums in Europe, stating that the display cuts down its refresh rate after a small period of inactivity. When this happens while an owner is watching a movie or TV show from a streaming service like Netflix or Amazon Prime Video, it can cause the video to stutter.

Right now, there’s only a few online reports of this bug occurring, so it doesn’t sound like this is an issue that’s affecting the majority of Galaxy S22 owners. Hopefully, Samsung will find out if this is a real bug and fix it in an upcoming software update.
