@Wyzard UI elements on android are most certainly NOT scaled to PPI, they are scaled to DPI.

PPI has NOTHING to do with screen real-estate. What we call "screen real-estate" is the actually the number of density independent pixels (DP). DP does NOT depend on the PPI of a device, and only depends on the DPI. That's why I can change my Galaxy Nexus from 320 DPI to 240 DPI, and see almost as much content as the Nexus 7. Phone vendors simply select the DPI closest to the PPI of the device (e.g. Galaxy Nexus - 316 PPI, 320 DPI. Nexus 7 - 216 PPI, 240 DPI).
