The displays are also 2K, and the hardware is also present to push such pixels, but still, some Reddit users have reported issues such as frame drops during playback while other problems include stutters now and then. Moreover, handsets with HDR in-build are locked down to high-resolution HDR playback, and they’re unable to drop down the quality.

Along with Samsung, the Japanese giant Sony also has HDR enabled flagship that’s the XZ Premium with its HDR Triluminos¬†display, can now also play HDR videos on YouTube. More devices will join this list soon, enabling the display feature, but we don’t think any budget phones have the ability to playback such visual overhead.

Furthermore, the new facility doesn’t feel like a final bug-free product and will undoubtedly receive many updates; to keep a stable playback speed and retain accurate color quality. And the video itself needed to be shot in HDR in the first place.
