My old phone has a 4.3" screen, 544x960; the new one is 4.75, 1080x1920. The new phone is about 15% larger, and has 4 times more pixels; but, bue I read emails, or navigate in menus (like parameters), the new phones shows 10% less text and entries (up to 20% less). Both phones have the font set to small. I have compared Android system menus (like params) and setting menu in apps (same app on both). And in every single test case, the large screen shows less than the small one.
Stupid question: is it possible to ask Android to ignore DPI, and use really small fonts so that I don't have just 4 or 5 menu entries per screen, but rather 10-15 ?
Serious questions: which environment would allow me to custom graphical settings ? which ROM ?
I use ADW; it's a good start, but it's just a Launcher. It does not help for system menus, and menus in apps.
