I have a T460 laptop with the FHD IPS (1920 x 1080) display that has windows 10 preinstalled. If I change the resolution lower then 1920x1080 the screen gets completely blurry. I'm also encountering scaling issues, As default it was set on 150%, The problem is that certain applications are blurry . The solution I found so far to fix that is to check the checkbox 'Disable display scaling on high DPI settings' but that makes fonts, ... just way too small making the application very unpleasant to work with
Changing the scaling to 100% fixes everything, but that makes everything too small
I wonder if anyone else using tesame display is encountering these issues and what your solution is to this?

I've got the same dpi (14" FHD screen). And I am developer by trade. The problem is the way Windows programs had been written. Programmers for years didn't have to worry about different dpi, most displays were about 96. So many of them used pixels and not logical units, so many Windows programs to this day have screen organized around fixed number of pixels. There's no quick fix other than look for programs developed with different dpi-s in mind. I.e. I used in the past Crimson Editor which was really nice but it didn't support higher dpi so found Notepad++. Unfortunately there are more complex programs with steep learning curve wich are not easy to switch (video editors, bloody Lightworks which was such a pain to learn, is still in 96 dpi world).

That made things even worse, I just decided to go with scaling at 150%, and adjusted the color with a SpyderPro. To deal with Remote Desktop scaling issues, I went with mRemoteNG, which I am begining to like very much. I still think the Top of the line 2560x1440 WQHD display is either before its time, or not ready for prime time, as long as software is lagging behind the technology.
This thread might have the solution for you.

I am on 14" FHD now and waiting for 14" WQHD. In theory the new one should do better because scaled pictures will be scaled more accurately. So my plan is to use scaling about 170 - 180% (I'm at 150% now) and let Windows scale dpi-unaware programs, just like the browsers do with pictures.

Prepare to be disappointed, I have never had so many issues with a display in my life. The scaling is horrible on the 2560x1440 WQHD, especially when it comes to a business PC that will more than likely be working with older software, and Remote Desktop (which doesn't scale at all - thank God for mRemoteNG). The default, just so you know is 200%, I am getting by with 150%, but I would gladly go back to my Elitebook 1600x900.
