Screen resolution and breakpoints

I have a client who wants us to develop using breakpoints. They have provided five specific measurements. For custom mobile (phone landscape), they have specified 667 x 375. When I published the course to the server and tested it on desktop, tablet, and phone, all of them worked fine – except for phone landscape. The page appeared very large and required considerable scrolling. I checked everything again to be sure, did a Live Preview, and still the same results. I even went so far as to check the browser size on my phone, modify the settings for that, did a Live Preview – and still got the same issue.

Is there a way to resolve this? They’re asking for a beta this week, and this is the only thing standing between me and delivery.

Thanks,

CHUCK

I’m trying to imagine what phone is 667 x 375 in landscape mode. It might be helpful if you knew what the target device is. Ask your stakeholder if they have accounted for the elements of the mobile phone browser or have they provided just the full-screen resolution of the device.

For example, my device is 667 x 375 (16 x 9), but because the mobile OS and browser elements take up some of the space on that screen size, I’m limited to 290 pixels. If they haven’t taken this into account, their numbers are not correct for the devices they have in mind.
