Default Reduce s4 resolution

In 4.3 the resolution of s3 worked pretty good however in kitkat it won't
Anyone got a prefect 720p resolution and dpi settings for this device as setting a 1080p resolution is just a waste of battery and processing power

The screen by itself is the biggest battery drainer of the whole device. The screen itself is 1920x1080.

If you use software to put it into 1280x720 or even lower the screen itself will still be 1920x1080.

All the 1920x1080 pixels need to be enabled, regardless of the resolution set by the software.

Ergo: has no use, to save battery. Best way to conserve battery is to leave the screen off.
