Gary L has a pretty good explanation. Others also have made some good points. I have found quality built, digital vs analogue servos can make a difference. I have some cheap indoor foamie brand X analogue servos have a definite spread from step to step. Vs a digital servo. I don't worry too much for this application with this poorer performance that I usually want or demand when I fly my outdoor stuff. Got some new EPP profile indoor foamies arriving this week but will be installing some iof my usual name brand digital servos. Smooth as silk and won't break the bank.
As for speed , that is usually designed in and will be faster with more input voltage. Speed can also be matched/controlled by some transmitters program programming.

As for resolution the transmitter , receiver and servo "must all play the same tune". Meaning at any point of the system you will only get the resolution of the lowest resolution component

Programable servos like some brands are great to have but depending what you have to do ;it pretty much is there to iron over manufacturing or design shortcomings so the owner can fine tune their servos in case the transmitter/ receiver isn't able to do so.
