So nobody has any idea how to fix this? It's the only thing that's keeping me from changing the dpi

Not sure if everyone already figured this out but setting the systemui to 480 in app settings does fix the lockscreen issue. You just have to make sure that you reboot the phone. Unfortunately systemui controls a lot of the things that I want to have the lower DPI such as status bar. I then had to set 480 for the camera and the incallui to fix them.

Tapped It!

SystemUI is basically most of the phone and the reason why people adjust it below stock in the first reason.

I might as well stick to stock DPI...LOL

Yeah that's what I was saying. I actually have gone back to 480 and am just using custom settings on apps I want. A lot of the stock Samsung apps only work properly at 480.

There is no fix for the lock screen. Samsung compiles all the firmwares with only one dpi in mind. To fix it someone would have to decompile keyguard.apk and increase all the values to the specific dpi. Pretty big project.

I wish the status bar and quicksettings were separate from the systemui then we could probably take care of them with the app settings xposed mod too
