There are 2 things we need to discuss.
1) System UI layout change to Tablet mode or Phablet mode UI. This changes the layout of the Nav Bar, Status bar and Notification area. Google removed this function. There is no way to get it back.
2) Triggered Tablet layout of specific apps. Developers of apps may wish to change the layout of their apps for a tablet. More screen real estate can mean there are better layouts than used for the phone. The only reliable trigger that a developer can use is dpi.
The bigger screen at the same resolution will have a lower dpi than a smaller screen at the same resolution. We can trigger tablet layout in apps by forcing the dpi down system wide using the build.prop. However, different developers will be triggered by different dpi's meaning you may need a dpi so low you cant see it on your small screen before some apps trigger.
You can use the Xposed module named "app settings" to actually change the layout of individual apps to tablet layout. So for example, you can set Chrome to be tablet layout without changing the dpi of the system or tha app itself. That's the only option though. Not all apps have a tablet mode.
Always read the OP's of a thread and the last 2 pages before asking questions, unless there has been an update - in which case, read the last 5 pages!
