Any current G3 owners try to drop the resolution to 1080p?

Tip us?

Sounds pretty promising with the phone just being released and all. I see a 1080 custom rom in the future

Oh, and I'm using Nova launcher. Scales perfectly.
If you have root then you can install xposed and install appsettings and change the dpi of every lg app to 640 i think it ill work

mm weird.. i don't remember where i read that using appsettings and changing the dpi to 640 will make those apps work again.. maybe it was 530 i dont remember sorry about that, i'll try to find where i saw it, are you still running 1080p? if so, do you see any impact on performance or battery life?

With appsettings set all lg apps to 530 DPI and they will work... I tried and were ok

Edit: also text scaling to 75

Couldn't you just use that app to change the resolution to 1080p AND the DPI to 530, rather than changing a handful of apps separately via app settings?

And are you noticing any improvements running at 1080p or any quirks?

I thought that if you change the resolution and the DPI for an app, that app has to support that resolution and DPI. If it doesn't then it won't work. Most LG apps are only build to support the native resolution/DPI of G3.

So. Is it a real performance boost to set to 1080p? If not, why not? :0 I dont really care about game performance. Mostly UI/Chrome lag.
