I am now running Fedora 21 on a Yoga 3 Pro with 3200x1800 native resolution. Since not all apps are aware of the HiDPI config sometimes I find it necessary to fall back to a lower resolution. The tricky thing is that the only resolution setting with 16:9 aspect ratio is 3200x1800, while all others are 4:3:

Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 3200 x 1800, maximum 32767 x 32767
eDP1 connected primary 3200x1800+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 293mm x 165mm
3200x1800     60.00*+  48.01  
2048x1536     60.00  
1920x1440     60.00  
1856x1392     60.01  
1792x1344     60.01  
1600x1200     60.00  
1400x1050     59.98  
1280x1024     60.02  
1280x960      60.00  
1024x768      60.00  
800x600       60.32    56.25  
640x480       59.94

I have tried to use xrandr:

xrandr --newmode "1600x900_60.00" 118.25 1600 1696 1856 2112 900 903 908 934 -hsync +vsync
xrandr --addmode eDP1 "1600x900_60.00"
xrandr --output eDP1 --mode "1600x900_60.00"

but the screen just go back to 3200x1800 after a few flickers.

Could anyone help me on getting 1600x900 work?

Use 1600x1200. If you aren't going to use the native resolution, at least stick with the native aspect ratio.
