Question [Q] Z Ultra "GPe" resolution issue

I own a Z Ultra GPe stock unrooted 4.4.3 Android and I'm having some issues with apps/games not working due to compatibility for example:

1. Candy Crush won't install off the play store "says not compatible with your device" , I had to use Aptoide to install it
2. Themer application will install but when I browse themes, it says that my screen resolution is not supported
3. And so on and so forth ...

Question here is:
Is this specific to the GPe model or is the regular Xperia Z Ultra also facing these problems? Any way I can fix this?
Device: Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 P6800
Current ROM: Stock 4.1.2 Rooted

Baseband: P6800XXLA1

Device: Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition
Current ROM: Stock Android 4.4.4


Device: Asus Nexus 7 (2012) 32 GB WIFI
Current ROM: Stock Android 4.4.4

Probably just GPe as it uses dpi of 400, where the Sony ZU uses a dpi of 320.

You could unlock and root and then change the dpi in /system/build.prop to 320

Thanks for the reply

So you are able to use themer normally and browse through themes ?

The Ultra (and 99.9% of other devices) are not supported by Themer.

The GPe runs at 400 DPI while the Xperia Ultra runs at 320. Just edit your build.prop in /system if you're rooted.
