So, recently noticed an issue with my S21 when running Pokemon GO. When I purchased the phone, the game, along with other apps would run (as expected) smoother with the adaptive screen setting on.
Now, about a month or so ago, I noticed that when playing pokemon GO, the phone would not run at the higher frame rate unless my fingers were contacting the screen. So, when I touched the Pokeball for example, the frame rate shot up and became silky smooth. Then seconds after letting go the rate dropped significantly and became choppy.
It seems to be a weird software issue where the adaptive screen only comes online when the game/app is physically being played.
I compared this today with my friends S21 on the same game and his performance was consistently higher frame rate. Same model, similar age.
Any ideas? I am feeling like this has been affected by an OS or app update, but I've reinstalled apps, rebooted my system, checked settings and still come up with nothing.
Thanks in advance.
