Any advantage to changing Google Play dpi?
Hey, hopefully somebody can help me out in this one. I recently got a new phone with full 1080p resolution which is great, but it seems like Google Play is downloading images at incredibly high resolutions to compensate for my phone's pixels.
I really don't have a lot of data to work with through my phone plan and I don't have a home internet plan to use for my Google Play downloads so I really need to keep data usage to a minimum. The other day I witnessed 10mb worth of usage just from opening the app, loading search results and opening the one app page that I wanted. Automatic updates are disabled and I know Play likes to update itself in the background so I checked that but that hadn't happened, so I can only assume it's from the high res images..
If I were to lower the dpi for Play only, would it load lower quality images and use less data? And would this affect the compatible apps that show up in search results? If it would solve the problem how would I go about lowering the dpi? Through xposed framework?
Thanks guys, look forward to a response.
