Refresh Rate Stuck at 120Hz on OnePlus: How to Fix

In this guide, we will show you a nifty workaround to fix the issue of the refresh rate being stuck at 120hz on your OnePlus device. 120hz refresh rate was considered a luxury feature but has since become the new normal [with the exception of Pixel]. So it’s no surprise to note that the latest OnePlus flagships support it as well.

In this regard, you could either fix the device’s refresh rate at the highest level [which will give you a snappier performance but would result in additional battery drain] or go for Adaptive Rate. The latter one will automatically adjust the rate based on the task that you are currently carrying out.

For example, if you are playing a graphics-intensive game, then it might push the rate all the way up to 120 whereas it would lower it down to 60 when you are going through your WhatsApp chat. This is usually the preferred mode for many as the OS takes care of the refresh according to the need, thereby resulting in optimized usage of the battery.

However, as of late, numerous OnePlus users have reported that the refresh rate on their device is stuck at 120Hz even on selecting the adaptive rate. So irrespective of the task they are currently performing, the rate will always be at 120, thereby resulting in additional battery drain. If you are also getting bugged by this issue, then this guide will help you out. Follow along for the fix.
