mobile webpage displays is bad

I load my website on my SE arc mobile and it is AWFUL!!!!

I have used boostrap responsive as well as css/html

The font is too small, the writing is pushed over to the left and if I load the page in lanscape it loads like in tablet size screen.

I cater for 480px size and the sony Arc xperia is far bigger than that it is 480px X 854px

If you resize the browser on a PC/laptop it looks OK but on the phone, what do i do ?

If I could force it to load in 480px mode (portait) mode and then when switching to landscape mode it will work to a pointas i need to increase the font size in 480px mode

Any buttons, it doesnt matter as you cant see any well.

media queries dont work or dont work well with modern smart phones as the screen sizes are huge in dimensions. Iphone5 is 1136 x 640 pixels so the idea of displaying a webpage for a phone with 480 or 320 px is long gone.

My xperia arc display for landscape was just terrible and in portrait it doesnt display like it does on a resize browser on a PC.

It isnt that east to simply increase the font size as you also need to increase the heights, and other factors. I wont be able to simply create a webpage for a screen size and assume it will display on a PC .

The solution  I have found is to create a separate website for phones only with jquery mobile.
Unless there is another easier way I think media queries will have come and gone without them really being embraced.

For font-size try this...
@media screen and max-width(480px){
     body{
          font-size: 15px; // or whatever you like...
      }
}

Open in new window


But the heading is a image...
You have to change the image to make it look good...

Heres the link of the image... http://www.mymrt.net/ctrain/img/head9.png

if you look at the size of the font on the phone display it is too small under the heading.

The image isnt the problem and in fact it is the only thing that works.
There is the text/button heights too small 'fat fingers problem' the text in pushed on the left hand side and in landscape is a whopping 854px . It looks fine on a desktop browser resized.

I cant code for  every device with media queries as there is a huge range of mobile sizes. There has to be another solution.

There is another solution or better solution?

This forces a website width. Is this another way i dont know about? Can i force a website width so I always get a 480 width display?
