Galaxy S7 has a native DPI setting, but its tucked away somewhere

There is a way to access this hidden menu, perhaps Samsung intended to activate the setting in a future software update, but if you want your Galaxy S7 to display more content on the same size screen, you can follow these steps to do just that.

Download Nova Launcher from the Play Store
Long-press an empty space in the homescreen and find the Widgets section
Choose the Activities widget and place it on any homescreen page
Find Settings and then pick .DisplayScalingActivity
Once the new widget shortcut appears, tap on it
Choose between Standard and Condensed
Enjoy more overall space around the OS, including those oversized statusbar icons that take up half the status bar

Sure, its kind of tedious, but hey, at least neither root nor ADB commands are required in order to enjoy a little more space for your Galaxy S7s beautiful AMOLED screen.

Here is one example below, but check our more screenshots at the source link from XDA-Developers.
