Default LCD Density

The default density of 480 is something I find to be too high, the huge big screen can use a little more content. Setting it to 400 makes it quite nice.

I use 320. It's the same as the Ultra then.

Or just edit your DPI in the Build.prop file.

I guess you still need to be rooted for that just like the Nexus 5?

love the results. always hated the big and bulky icons because of our 5.2" screen.
