Screen resolution is poor 720p not 1080p

Postby 802plus » Sat Jun 23, 2012 8:58 am

Anyone now how to alter the screen resolution of Android as it defaults to 720p, which is quite poor. MK802 can display at 1080p, it would be better if the manufacturer set the default as 1080p?

This could be considered to misrepresent MK802

"Graphics - AMD Z430/Z160) 3D
Hardware Accelerated (1080P & 2160P Output)"

in so far as changing the Android setting from 720p is not obvious...

Use this and set the resolution to TABLET mode, then reboot!

This app changes the dpi of the screen which renders the screen more like an actual tablet.
It means that the screen will have more real estate and therefore be treated as a real tablet by apps.

It does not enable 1080p, this can only be done with uboot/firmware which is coming in a firmware update hopefully very soon. (Rikomagic China tell me they are working on it but don't have a date)
