exactly what changes do you think this flag should make in the application?

No application should care what the actual screen resolution is, if you make 
them optimize for 1080P HD, then they will be horrible on a 4k or 8k screen (or 
a small screen for that matter)

you also don't know if your 4K screen is a 24" screen or a 40" screen, and even 
if you do know it's a 40" screen, you don't know if the user is 2' from the 
screen or 10' from the screen.

the user needs to set the size of things, not the app.
