Thanks for the reply Marina. I am checking the modes, testing on an Xperia
Z5 Premium, and there are 2 modes: 1080p and 4k. It was working pretty well
on Android M, but on the N update it's scaling the whole phone UI to 4k and
the whole phone interface is messed up. Not the app UI, but the whole
phone, I don't see the bottom navigation bar for example, and the status
bar fills 1/4 of the screen with the time, network and wifi icons. I have
no idea why it's doing that (or even if it's supposed to be doing that).
