The stuff in your screenshot relates to the physical properties of the device display.
These aren't things that can be changed.
You can change the LCD density, which in simple terms controls how large or small stuff is on your screen.
Explaining LCD density and how it relates to DPI etc. and how and what it affects can get really complicated really quickly, so I'll take the easy option and give you a few examples for the N7000.
The default LCD density for our device is 320 DPI, this is what Samsung thinks is the best density to display things clearly for most people.
The icons and text are pretty big.
The homescreen has 4 columns and 4 or 5 rows (depending upon your launcher).
I prefer 240 DPI which makes everything smaller on the screen, which means I can squeeze more on the screen.
My homescreen has 6 columns and 7 rows, so I need fewer homescreens.
Also, my homescreen widgets can display more information, e.g. I see more entries in my calendar widget as the text is smaller.
My eyes are relatively okay, so the smaller text and icons present no real problems for me, and thanks to the Density Independence of Android
, my apps are also scaled for the new LCD density.
This basically means I see more of my apps (like having a bigger window on the app) and things like the status bar are not as tall as on 320 DPI.
You can change LCD density in Dirty Tweaks or use something like Rom Toolbox Pro (available from the Pray Store and other App Stores).
If you want a more detailed explanation of LCD density that's relatively simple to understand, head here
DISCLAIMER: Other LCD densities are available!!!!!
