using partial refresh ... heavily makes the display end up "muddy"


You can probably easily solve that by using a MPEG tactic. Every N frames, refresh the entire screen.

Someone else the other day presented some encouraging numbers in terms of what my expected battery life would be at my current draw

If you are referring to Jörgen Andersson's answer, I saw it. I agree with him. Assuming 5V/0.33A, gives less than 2W. If your currently working on a off-the-shelf board, which usually are designed to be friendly and use USB power (5V), that might mean that maybe the components actually work at 3.3V or 3.7V and that will be the voltage of the final product. That would make it perfect for a small battery like an action camera one or from a phone (think small nokia phone before microsoft).

screen dimming or blanking


Depending on refresh rate and on what is actually displayed, you can use interlacing too, if the screen supports it. Every other frame update only the even or odd rows/columns. This works well for slow changing images on fast refresh displays with small enough (size) pixels. Every N frames, refresh the entire screen as above.

GFX - the library I use in this project

I have the article open in a tab but haven't had the time to read it thoroughly. Seems to be a great library so Congratulations and Thank You for sharing it with us. Even if I end up never using it, I am sure I will learn something from it Smile | :)
