Default [Q] GPE scaling?

Only had this for a few days so far since the sale on Google play, everything is great with it however the size of the keyboard, text in the notifications area and GUI elements (I.e. chrome address bar) are massively huge and are almost twice the size of what I see on my nexus 7 2013, is this just the way it is or is there some setting I have yet to find or is this just the way it is?

I have set fonts to small but that had no effect.

Edit /system/build.prop look for the lcd dpi string and change from 400 to 320. 320 is the native dpi of the display

You can only do this if rooted.

not back to factory with the GPe unfortunately. you may [will?] lose the DRM keys stored on the TA partition

Both are about the same, sony one is harder if you want to keep drm keys
