Feature Request(?) Changing Screen Resolution On-the-Fly RRS feed

  • Question

  • I think this might be more of a discussion than a feature request, especially if this is already possible. 

    Is it possible, technically, for a Windows Phone 8.1 device - if the OS today already supported it - to change screen resolutions? 

    Example. I have a 1080p WP 8.1 device. I want to save battery life, so I clock down to 854x480 to save the juice until such a time calls for Netflix, etc to enjoy the screen size and ppi.

    Is this a pipe dream, or could this be a thing? (Or am I too dumb to realize this already is a thing with WP 8.1?)

    The nice part there too would be phones that have the lower-end spec'ed processors could also gain a boost in OS performance with the lower res. I think this would in general be a cool option and an innovative leap forward.. or am I alone in that thought?
