Many people argue about the fps and resolution and at times, I have found myself entangled in this battle. For example, in a recent argument, we had to choose between 720p @ 60fps and 1080p@ 30fps. I went for the former since I am more into fps. What could be your choice? What is the main drive to that choice? Is there any other information that I need to know when making the choice?
FPS vs Resolution battle, which is a proper display metric?
With 720p @ 60 fps or 1080p @ 30 fps, I usually see this on Smartphone specifications particularly on the built-in camera. It describes the capacity of the camera when recording a video on the handset. The term 720p refers to the dimension of the video image or the screen resolution or the screen size of the video itself.
It refers to the HDTV signal format that has 720 horizontal lines and has 16:9 aspect ratio or AR. The 720p HD format has a screen resolution of 1280 x 720. The letter “p” stands for progressive scan. 1080p on the other hand, is also referred to as Full HD.
When you say 1080p, it means 1920 x 1080 pixels screen resolution. FPS is the short term used for frames per second. It actually sets the smoothness of the video when it is played back. Higher frame rate increases the smoothness of the video. FPS is a measurement for how many unique successive images for every second that a camera can handle.
