Browser Width/Height compared to Mobile Screen Size

The browser width/height dimensions capture similar but distinct values when compared with mobile screen size.

For example, when you break down browser width or height by mobile resolution, you need to be aware of these distinctions:

  • The Mobile Device Resolutions are the physical values associated with the device. For example, under Mobile Device Resolutions the Galaxy S8 would appear as 2,960 x 1,440. The Mobile Device Resolution is retrieved from a 3rd-party service after the device is identified.
  • By contrast, under the Browser Height and Width values, you see the CSS (logical) values of 740 x 360. The Browser values rely on the Javascript/CSS data.
