Default Screen dpi vs. resolution

I feel that everything in the stock rom is unnecessarily big. I tried changing the resolution but it made my hardware navigation keys useless.
changing the dpi solved that problem.
i wanted to know know the difference between the two. And also suggestion on which one should i prefer changing.
p.s. isn't dpi a hardware thing? how can an app change that?
thanks in advance.

Use this app called Dpi changer that's available in the playstore.. Change it to 180 or 190 and reboot your phone.. The higher the value the bigger your icons will be.. Easy!
