This ROM is wonderful, but at first I found it odd that the screen size is too small. The small icons, the lyrics and everything. I looked everywhere and most of the settings I could find was how to increase the font size, but even so the widgets and applications themselves, were still with a very small format. I searched the internet and some friends gave me this tutorial and it worked fine on my machine. I'll go to you too, but do so with caution and at your own risk. The number density of the screen is known as the DPI was raised to 182 and 222. It looks good.

With some file explorer (Es Explorer, Root Explorer, etc.) open the build.prop file located at: /system/build.prop Within this file, locate the following line: ro.sf.lcd_density=240

Value "240" is the factory original. We can change this value to we change the density of the screen. The lower the value, the greater the density for Change any value between 160 and 240 (Tested with 160 and 192) After change this line, below the line "#ADDITIONAL_BUILD_PROPERTIES" has another line equal to modified up there: ro.sf.lcd_density =240

We will comment this line, simply by placing a # at the beginning of it (this line should originally be deleted, but if you want to go back to the original DPI, should resume this line. Leaving it commented, is virtually a “backup" her. If you just uncomment it)

Save the file.
Delete the file generated by the system, build.prop.bak
Reboot the phone.
