I own an HTC One (M7) which has a 1080p screen but pretty bad battery life. Since I switched from a Galaxy Nexus to the M7 I personally don't have a problem switching back to a 720p screen. Here is my question:
Is there any way of changing the screens resolution (I am rooted and have a custom ROM with Xposed)?
(Like on windows you can set a 1080p screen to display the content in 720p or even lower, which makes the system run faster since the GPU doesn't need to push around that many pixels)

I also think that in cyanogenmod you could change to 16 bit output

Didn't work for me either but I came across the terminal emulator which gave me ability to change it myself. But still thanks
