Hi! This is my first Topic in MoDaCo, I hope this helps you!
 
Ok, let me introduce the topic.
 
After installing a custom rom in my Huawei Y300, I've accidentally discovered that we can change our device's screen DPI (dots per inch).
 
From stock our phones come with different DPI values (120, 160, 240). This values usually make our screen fonts or lines look blurry. Thats because our android DPI settings doesn't match our device's PPI (Pixels per inch). So, now I'm going to show you a way to improve the way fonts and lines look in our device.  ;)
 
1st) As we are changing core system settings, we need to have our device with ROOT access. The best way to do this is by installing Framarrot app. http://forum.xda-dev...o-root-t2130276
 
2nd) Now that we have ROOT access to our device, we can proceed to start the DPI change proccess. Wipe your "Play Store" app data (app data and cache). This is necessary 'cause sometimes we can have some troubles with this apps. If you want and have the patience you can repeat this with every app.
 
3rd) The time has come. Search in your "Play Store" for "DPI changer" and install that app. https://play.google....ushi.dpichanger
 
4th) Before putting your hands on the app, we need to check our phone's PPI. To get an accurate value, I suggest you search for your device in this site, GSMARENA.

5th) Now that we know our device's PPI. We can head to "DPI Changer". Before changing any value I suggest you backup your previous settings. From the drop-down menu, select "Backup build.prop". Tap "Go" to Back it up.

6th) Write your device's PPI in the "New DPI value". Select from the drop-down menu "Apply new DPI value" and tap "Go" to set the new DPI value.

7th) Now we need to shut down our device and turn it on again to apply this changes.
 
 
That's it! I hope you notice the change and you will get a slight performance boost.

You can also add the manually metod by editing build.prop ro.sf.lcd_density=240 to ro.sf.lcd_density=233
