Default DPI


I'm messing around with the dpi... putted some apps on 360 dpi. but maybe I'm thinking to put my whole phone in 360 dpi. is it safe to do it with a root file manager and just change the dpi in the build prop?? or should I do it with an app... now I'm playing with App Setting in the xposed framework but I heared it sucks a lot of battery...

What would you do?

Make a Nandroid Backup before changing DPI. Chances are always that you're ending up in a Bootloop. Somme will say that App Settings won't drain your battery, although my experience is it does drain Battery.

1. System-wide DPI makes no sense. Some apps will always be too small or to big or whatever.
Xposed App Settings are much better since there are only a few apps which profit from making them "smaller".

2. If App Settings woule drain battery, it (or Xposed somehow) would appear in "Wakelock Detector"s list or in the system battery statistics. But it doesn't. It's just your fantasy
