Default Modern servos?

So I am shopping around for servos and seeing a lot of great new technology. Brushless, coreless, high resolution (4096) etc. So thinking about the brushless servos: They have to be more efficient. This would mean they use less battery. Am I thinking correctly here? It would seem that a high resolution brushless servo would be the way to go. While they would still want the same amount of voltage (or more), but they would use less amps, giving more time on a given size RX battery. What are some thoughts from you guys on this issue? I recently bought a Graupner MZ32 which is a 4096 resolution radio, and I want to take advantage of this feature.

So you think those higher dollar servos are a waste?

Brushless last longer and are more efficient

Coreless has faster initial acceleration and deceleration

Most modelers will never see a practical difference except at the wallet
