Hi All,
Wanted to share with you all on how to change the Display DPI settings.
What it does..? It provides you with more space on your screen and may also help you play HD games which requires more resolution.
There are a few apps in the market which will do the same job.. but still this is free & the easiest way to do it.

1. Open Root Explorer
2. Navigate to System folder
3. Open the file name build.prop
4. Scroll down and under 'Additional_build_properties' look for the line ro.sf.lcd_density = 240
The default value for the LCD density is 240, you may change it 200
Then press menu key and click on Save or Save & exit. It will create another build.prop file in system folder.
Reboot phone and your done..!
Njoy..!

Not sure which DPI value will be equivalent to 800 * 480 resolution.

360 Launcher
Here is a video for 360 launcher running with above DPI settings.. So far I've found this launcher to be the smoothest launcher on our Android ported device.

wouldn't it make your phone screen setting not fit?
