Hey guys, welcome back to Gadgets Unleashed. I'm sure some of you have seen my previous
video where I talk about how to increase your battery life of your LG G3 by decreasing your
display resolution from 2K to a Full HD. In a part of the video I actually talked about
how your LG stock apps will not work because it's made for 2K display not for Full HD display.
So in this video I'm actually going to talk about how to make these apps actually work
on your display when you change it to a Full HD. As you can see I'm actually using a Full
HD resolution right now on my LG G3. And let's open the LG Dialer. So as you can see, the
dialer works even though I'm actually downscaled to Full HD. So how to make it work? First
thing, you have to be rooted on your phone. If you don't know how to root your phone,
I'll put down the link below, my previous video on how to root any Android phone. Basically
after rooting your phone, I'll require you to download this app called "Xposed Framework".
I'll put a link down below also. So after installing Xposed Framework on your phone,
you'll have this Xposed Installer icon and what you need to do is to open it, click on
"Framework". And then you have to click on "Install/Update". After clicking "Install/Update",
they'll prompt you to reboot, and you should just reboot your phone. After rebooting your
phone, the next step is to access the "Downloads" section. In the "Downloads" section, you need
to find this Xposed Mod called the "App Settings". I have it installed already. What you need
to do is to click on "Install", and install it. After installing "App Settings", you will
need to access the modules and tick this box. After which, they will prompt you to reboot
your phone again, and you should reboot your phone. After rebooting your phone, App settings
should be already in your App Drawer. All you need to do is to open it up. OK so you'll
see a long list of apps and it looks very... ... complicated. But it's actually quite simple.
As you can see, the apps highlighted in red are actually apps that I have modified before.
I'll just go to one of it, let's say the "Calculator". OK, by default your calculator or any other
apps should look like this when you click on it. All you need to do is to click on the
"On" button. After clicking on the "On" button, you'll see this screen. And all you need to
do is to change the DPI to 530, and the Font Scale to 75. Adjust these two settings, and
click on the floppy disk icon here. Click on OK, and you are set. After which you should
move on to the next app. Let's assume calendar. Do the same thing, 530, 75, click on floppy
disk icon, and back. As you can see, the calendar works, calculator works. You have to do this
for every single LG app. I'll show you what are the LG apps that I actually change the
settings for. I did it for the "App Updates", the "Calculator", the "Calendar", "Clock",
the "Contacts". the "Contacts" will be together with the dialer, so by changing the settings
for your "Contacts", your dialer will work. The "Gallery", "Messenging", "Music", "Quick
Remote", "LG Video", and that should be it. So I hope by showing you how to make your
LG apps work on your downscaled display you are actually getting the best out of your
LG G3. I hope you like this video. Thank you for watching. See you again.
