Is it worth using 4K versus 1080P on projects intended for web use only?

Greetings...

 

The projects I shoot wind up on YouTube or another online portal.  Will I find an appreciable increase in quality by shooting in 4K versus 1080P.  I know the file size is several times larger... but I have a 128GB card in my Hero7 so capacity isn't that much more of a problem.

I also know battery life is considerably shorter shooting with 4K.  But I am using the Karma Grip... so that provides a power reserve.

 

Your opinion will be appreciated.
