How to: HD resolution on Android Devices

Why when trying to prototype on a 1080x1920 screen on Android Device it automaticaly converts to a "tablet-like" device and widgets like the Horizontal Softkeys don't fit in? It's like it is too much bigger for them...


Most of new Android devices have fullHD screens and bigger, am I doing something wrong?

Hi Alvaro,


Simulation on Android devices doesn't have an specific template for the device. This is because Android devices have many different case shapes and there is not a generic one (such as it is with iPhone). For that, Android simulator appears always with a neutral case.


When you drag a widget to the screen, it is created for a specific resolution but you can modify it and adapt it to your device size (by modifying each small element that conforms the widget).


Best,
