I have a problem with setting the dpi of the samsung phone app with this app, everything else works fine. I set the dpi first by editing the build prop but the dialer did not like it so i tried to set it back to original dpi but it wont respond to any changes, only option is to revert the build prop.

Use solid explorer or root explorers and change the LCD density in build prop. I am using 350 at the moment and it's been good... I then use the xposed module app settings to change the Samsung apps like phone and calculator back to 480 so they don't look ridiculous all bunched up in the corner of the screen.. worked a treat on every rom I use.. do it on kitkat roms on my nexus 4 and s4 with no dramas as well until a PA type rom comes out

This is how i did it, sorry for my previous confusing post. Problem is, the phone app does not respond to any of the changes, the xposed app works fine on chrome etc. though.

We don't have tablet mode on the Note 3 ... first thing I tried to do with a bunch of different dpi settings and it's a no go.

tablet mode has been removed from base android since 4.2 or 4.3 (i cant recall which one right now).

when you see it in a rom it is the re-addition in xml layout files to enable the 'tablet' mode again

^^^ read this in another thread

i wouldn't mind giving tablet mode a go again myself on such a large device when we see some AOSP love that will enable it again
