    In 1+1 with the new update, this is just a matter of going to Settings -> Display and lights -> LCD density.

    I am using using 320 DPI and wow, I can see 10 emails listed in GMail.

    Good to know that they've included this feature, waiting on a full 2.0.2 zip to surface.

    Uhh wait.. OnePlus One, or OP2?

    Well that's weird then, it's been an app I've used for years on a few devices with no issues (definitely working/worked on my OPO as I tried it the other day when I was messing about with Oxygen out of boredom :D )

    Welll... Same here. But the op2 misses a line obviously. Le dpi changer is able to add that line. So THAT one works.

    He is speaking about Oneplus One and the newest COS12.1 update. Nothing like that in OxygenOS

    Yeah, I figured as much. For the record @dlaravind, this thread concerns changing the stock DPI on OxygenOS for the OnePlus 2.

    Yeah. I thought the same might be there in OP2 (being newer phone/newer OS). Thats the only intention.

    When rooted, the new "le dpi changer" worked for me. Use the "special button"

    This is what I did.

    1. Set DPI to 420
    2. Press build prop
    3. Reboot
    4. ???
    5. No profit

    The best way to change the DPI is running the adb command: adb shell wm density 400, wich 400 is the dpi choosed for you. In my case I choosed this one. Don´t forget to reboot the OP2. It's mandatory!
    I think there isn't any other way to change DPI in OxygenOS 2.0.2:p

    Well, yes there is, by adding the appropriate line to OP2's build.prop, which is the method outlined in this threads OP. Shell commands will also do the trick and are a viable option, other than that the other apps being referenced are just adding the build.prop line I referenced for you, so I suppose if you don't feel comfortable doing it manually then you've got those available to you as well. However, the idea here was to cut out the middle man and avoid downloading an app for something you could just as easily do yourself, however I do realize that not everyone may be up to the task.
