Battery is standing at 90% after an hr of rather heavy usage. Screen on time is also an hr as i have been surfing and playing games non stop. Rather impressive compared before rooting. Basically what i did was root my phone. Ran android tweaker 2. Ran disable service app. Lastly using nomone, i am running 1920 x 1080 with 530 dpi. Will monitor and post my final screen on time after it completely drains.

I don't really understand why people run the screen at 1920x1080. Doesn't that pretty much defeat the purpose of buying this phone? You effectively turned your G3 into a Find 7a.

I like everything about this phone except the impact the screen has on the battery. I'd gladly modify my G3(when I get it) to make it 1920x1080 if the performance is exactly the same and the battery life is superior compare to its standard 2k settings.



Looking forward to your results, TC!

Perhaps I'm in the minority, but the only reason I'm hesitant to buy this phone is because it's 2560x1440 and that will kill the battery. If I knew how to change the screen to 1920x1080 I'd do it in a heartbeat if I get the phone. The G3 is significantly smaller and lighter than the 7A fwiw.

To the OP: Be sure to screenshot your stats at the end of your charge and share them. Enjoy.

I honestly had no idea that you could change the resolution of your phone. Does it look odd being a 1440 display on 1080p?

You are not the minority really, I am actually scared to buy because of the battery/heating issues revolving around the super display.

Yes i had no idea i could till i came across someone who posted the app. Need root to use it. Very simple and few prefixes for you to select. Also setting it too low for the dpi might result in glitches as reported by several users and 530 is the sweet spot. On another hand i did encounter a glitch which is when i try to select a word that i typed wrongly for correction, the entire screen went blank for a while, kinda random. So far all my apps and games are running well.

The OP is talking about the actual resolution, not the DPI. You can change the resolution from 2k to 1080p thus reducing the load on the CPU and GPU and making the phone faster and giving greater battery life. You do have to change the DPI afterwards also as it messes it up. The app to change the actual resolution is called Nomone. I don't change the resolution as that's one of the reasons I Bought the phone, for the 2k display. I do think the S801 is at its limit for pushing the QHD though, 1080p does "feel" better.

As what batfink mentioned. Spot on. My phone used to get warm when it gets intense but now it doesnt anymore. The qhd is great but comes with a price.
