Exactly this, it takes a few seconds to render the full 4k displayed image

Hi @Bjorn_O

I've open a new thread about the 4k resolution in YouTube and as you can read here


The display doesn't switch to 4K when 4K quality is selected in the YouTube app neither in the Google Chrome mobile version that use flash player.

I see you are a developer team member so can you please answer to my question here or in my new thread or even PM me.

Thank you

Re: When Can XZ Premium Use Full 4K Resolution?

I'm curious about that as well, I'm starting to wonder because whenever I try veryfying the screen resolution using Antutu, it always shows 1080 screen even when Im playing 4K video on YouTube thatvs being put on half screen.

And also, I don't notice a change even when I toggle the 4K res when I'm using it to watch a vr video. Now that's weird, that's where the difference should be most stark.


How do I make sure the screen is actually running 4K when it's supposed to?

I can't get antutu to show intentification result as 4K no matter what I do.
