Tip of the Week: Change Your Android’s Screen Resolution

Tip of the Week: Change Your Android’s Screen Resolution

Have you ever wondered what a different screen resolution might look like on your Android device? Well, now you don’t have to! Today’s tip is all about changing the screen resolution on your device, for better or worse. Let’s take a look at how to do it.

First, we just want to get a disclaimer out of the way. If you are uncomfortable with this process, make sure you contact your IT department so they can work with you to get the job done. Alternatively, you can work with a managed service provider like Decatur Computers Inc.. Either way, the rule of thumb here is that you shouldn’t attempt anything that you are uncomfortable doing, especially if you need to dig into the Developers section of your device’s settings.

Most modern Android devices will give you the option to adjust screen resolution in the Display options or Settings. To get there, look for the gear-like icon on the applications menu. It should be labeled as Settings. You can also swipe down and click on the Settings app from the drop-down menu that appears. From here, you select Display, the option that appears as a sun-like icon. If you can’t find it, you can always use the Find feature to look for the desired setting.

You should now see an option for Screen Resolution. You have a couple of options depending on the device, but they will typically look like the following:

  • Standard HD: 1280 x 720
  • FHD: 1920 x 1080
  • WQHD: 2560 x 1440

Now, let’s say that these options aren’t available for your device. You’ll have to use Developer Mode, and we don’t recommend doing that without getting some help from one of the experts at Decatur Computers Inc..

Keep in mind that this does not change the resolution of the screen itself; it simply changes the number of pixels used on the screen. Images, text, and otherwise might appear blurry after adjusting the screen, so use your best judgment with this feature.
