>>136043369
Yes, you do. The higher refresh rate makes everything smoother even when 24 fps is being rendered. Switching back to 60hz for me makes everything, even anime, "lag" behind until you get used to it again.
>>
>>136043536
>Switching back to 60hz for me makes everything, even anime, "lag" behind
That's just because of dropped/repeated frames, or your video player is doing some sort of interpolation.
72 is better for watching videos than 60 because it's a multiple of 24. Each frame will be shown 3 times, instead of some being 3 and some being 2.
>>
>>136043536
Anon I think what you are experiencing there is bad frame pacing. 60 is not an even multiple of 24, so there is no perfect way to present 24fps content on a 60hz display. Switch to a screen that's an even multiple of 24, like 48hz or 72hz, and it works fine.

There is far more to be gained from watching anime in a challenging environment using outdated equipment.

Knew it. Worked that gig through college. 12 hour shifts in a building on your own at night.

Because using a smartphone as your primary means of consuming media is an instant millennial red flag. Watching anime on your phone isn't inherently bad (although I do wonder about the practicalities and viewing experience), but the practice of doing so says a lot about you - unless of course you do it because you have absolutely no other choice.
