Why does the LCD Density in Galaxy Gran Duos is set to 240?

This can be viewed in \System\build.prop

The real LCD density for the Gran Duos is 187 PPI

In The Stock rom, with android 4.2.2 the LCD Density is set to 240, but this actually causes the objects in screen to look larger and occupies more space than it should.

Well this happens because android system try to compensate the resolution of screen, (Better resolution = More Density)

The android system, makes a scale for application, which leads the applications to resize elements in a scale factor of 1.5x

So every thing you see on ower Galaxy Grand is 1.5x bigger than it should be.

PPI and DPI are two different things, not one.
PPI is Pixels Per Inch and DPI is Dots per Inch.
The amount of dots in one pixels differs from phone to phone and manufacture to manufacture, its basically the OEMs choice how they like their phones, so that's why grand has it set to 240 in stock.
Even if you set your DPI to 160, 170 or 180, your PPI stays at 187 at 480x800 resolution
