    I currently have the oneplus 7 pro. and I'm curious to know if oneplus 8 pro will have the force mode just like the oneplus 7 pro had, which could be activated by using the cmd command, since the day I bought my phone it's running on the force mode and I love it like that.
    personally, battery life is not an issue for me. and I'm thinking of buying the oneplus 8 pro if it will have the same option.
    I watched MKBHD and he mentioned that the 120 Hz is adaptive and doesn't consistently stay in the 120hz unless the app allows it.

    I know its very early to ask of this but finger cross the option can be enabled.



    Edit.......
    I got the confirmation from xda Devs regarding the force mode on op8 Pro and it works. So glad and can't wait to get my op8 Pro in few days.
    Thanks toto everyone that offered help. Really appreciate it.


    Edit...... Finally got my phone on 21 April and I have tested the ADB command and it works and if anyone interested in the command its written below.

    adb shell settings put global oneplus_ screen_refresh_rate 0

    I don't expect it because I doubt a lot of apps will have support for 120hz, so you will probably have to force it as well but we'll see!

    I'm hoping the force option through the cmd will be available. as I hate the sudden change and going 60 and 90 in between and it does feel sluggish when that happens.

    Hz is quite funny though. When you're used to 60 its fine, but once you've seen 120 you can never go back :p

    Very true, and since the day I had the op7 pro, my previous op5 felt really sluggish in the scrolling in general. and any device I try with less than 90hz feels really slow. and I tried the s20+ for a couple of hours and the 120 Hz made the 90hz feel slow. really want to get the op8 pro just for the 120hz. but just holding back, till I get a confirmation for the force mode.

    Hey I have the phone but don't know how to input the command to try it. If you can give me directions on how to do it I will try it out. Also is there a way to test out what frames I'm getting in games or apps?

    Do you think OP will enable options on the OP8pro to run 120 Hz and lower the screen resolution like Samsung has by default? Thinking this in regard to safe battery life. Or enable option to select 90 Hz. If there are any gains in doing so. Just curious :)

    Thank you for trying and helping me with this mod. And yes I can definitely provide you the steps. And also, there is an app which does show the fps which can varify the results.

    To activate the force mode you will need to follow certain steps.

    1. enable the developer option
    To activate the developer option you will have to go to setting, about phone and tap on the build number 7 times.

    After enabling the developer option you will have to go back in setting, and systems and at the end you will see developer option. Once in developer option activate USB debugging. And once the pop up appear click OK.

    2. And connect the phone to computer or laptop and let the driver install. And once done. On the phone make sure its in mtp and not on charge mode.

    3. In computer search and type cmd. And open the command app. And in the cmd just type
    adb shell settings put global oneplus_screen_refresh_rate 0

    The phone should automatically enable the 120hz force mode.

    To confirm the phone is in 120hz the option in setting, in display, screen refresh rate should show the both the 60hz and 120hz unticked. I have attached the picture for this.

    This is the link which also explain to activate the force mode.

    To see fps and what hz the display is in this app can show the fps.

    The way the system is configured the fps shown is also what the hz is on.

    And I have attached the picture below to show inin the true state of force mode how the apps work.

    I'm writing this to confirm that the 120hz force mode does work with op8 Pro and on xda forum I made a thread and asked the Devs and one of them forfor back and confirmed that the 120 hz does work with op8 Pro.

    They also used the op7 pro on force mode and I'm glad to say the mod works.

    Thanks to the community members who also responded and provided help. You are awesome.

    hi all,

    I am interested to know if Oneplu 8 Pro has a hidden 90hz or 96hz to enable it at QHD.
    Please let me know if there is any.

    Thanks.
