I personally think the DPI is to big on the stock version of G3, has anybody successfully decreased it to anything under 380dpi?

You need to root and use the app Texdroid. The stock DPI is around 650ish (can't remember exactly).

Is it not due to the QHD display that the DPI is so big?

Yeah, I've used texdroid to change it. I used Towelroot to root. Very easy. Everything works fine.
