How to change screen size resolution on Android Lollipop device

If you want to test your app on devices with different screen sizes you could buy a lots of devices or you simple change the resolution of your device. In my case it’s a Nexus 4.

  1. By the way: In the past it was
    adb shell am display-size 576×960
    adb shell am display-size reset

    adb shell wm size is the new command.
