Thanks. I checked my default density before changing it with the command "wm density" which exported 420, not 403 like OP said .

The draining is very poor, not an impact so remarkable. The issue is about the themes, e.g. in the Agree Bird I have now when I asnwer to a call, the dialer disappear and it becomes a nightmare eheh

I heard somewhere that the phone app will work properly if you use 1440x2560 resolution, not sure about DPI though. I think it was Z5 Premium thread.

They said during CES or something similar that you would be able to change the resolution in settings, so you could run 4K all the time if you wanted to. But that isn't the case on the phone right now.

Either the people from Sony that made the claim had their information wrong or Sony changed their mind afterwards. Either way, it sucks that you can't control your resolution in the settings.

Hopefully it comes in a future update, maybe there were some issues with certain apps in 4K. I wouldn't count on it happening but it's not completely off the table.

Has someone used this for a while and can tell us about eventually battery effects of this? Does the phone app force closes etc?

I haven't tried making any calls since switching to 4K using this method due to my sim card being to big and I haven't gotten my new sim card yet. Will probably get it tomorrow.

I'm going to do some PCMark battery benchmarks with it on 4K and on 1080p to see if battery life is affected but it's going to take a while. I will try to have it done by tomorrow and post my results here.
