Has anyone reduced their screen resolution to 1920x1080 or similar and noticed a significant improvement in battery life? I have tried to find an answer online for whether or not this will do anything for battery life on laptops and so far I haven't found a definitive answer.

I think it would be hard to get a measured evaluation of battery life with lower resolution setting since difference most likely is unremarkable and depends on usage to be definitive for entire battery life duration (1-2 years).
LCD pixels would still be illuminated no matter what detailed rendering is used. What may affect most are heavy graphics that can decrease power draw on GPU/CPU that may lessen in lower resolution. This is actually still unremarkable as compared to decreasing the brightness to 80% and more on 50% that will sure help.
Hope this help answer your query.
