Default Can we change from 1080p to 720p to reduce battery?

Hi all, a few days ago I received my new huawei honor 6 and is blazing fast and smooth but what impressed me is the battery life.
It has an option to switch from 1080p to 720p with a setting named rog technology and where I had 4 hours of on screen time until 30% when I switched to 720p I got 6 hours (5:48) and the battery at 26%.
Is there a tool we can use to switch our amoled screen to 720p? Because at 5 inch I don't notice any difference.
Because if there isn't I find charging my phone once per 2 days or 3 very intresting and I might keep the honor 6 for me and the s5 to my wife.

Yeah honor 6 has it and I gain 2 more hours of on screen time since the Chinese can do it I think it must be software related.
I can safely say that with normal use 2 hours (internet ,calling,Facebook ) a day I can charge my honor 6 every 3 days it would be awesome if we could do this on our halaxy s5 instead of enabling and disable ultra power save all the time.

-I remember seeing a build prop tweak where you edit one line to change what resolution the screen is drawn at.

OP, go download a build prop tweaker and go through the lines and find one that is similar to that-

EDIT: nvm i could have sworn it was available in my Xperia Z buildprop
Previous devices:

HTC Incredible S S710e (Eventually stopped turning on)

Nexus 7 2012 (Half the screen stopped responding to touch after leaving it for 2 months, also has weird marks on bezel, no idea from where)

Sony Xperia Z C6603 (Passed it down to family member, I actually hated this device)

Current devices:

Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900I

Why would anyone tinker with the powerful screen this phone offers?
