The Samsung Galaxy S3 is 1280x720 .

On my site I have the following

<style>
            @media all and (min-width: 1024px){
     #desktophide  {display:none;}
}
      @media all and (min-width: 1024px){
      img {float:right;padding-left: 10px;}

}

@media screen and (max-device-width: 480px){
      #mobilehide {display:none;}
      
                    
}
</style>

I don't want to alter my css because it seems to fit most device perfectly. So if I wanted to target the S III (and I'm assuming they have market share so this is important)

The following wouldn't mess up the site that has rendered in a forgiving manner so far:

@media only screen
and (min-device-width : 720px)
and (max-device-width : 1280px) {
#desktophide {dispay:none;}
}

with any cross-device issue on mobile.  It is mostly a matter of trial and error.  Every manufacturer define media query support differently and virtually every manufacture defines resolution differently than the standard (one virtual inch = 96 pixels with the virtual inch defined a default display circuit density unique to the device).

So all you can do is experiment until you get it right.

The state of mobile compatibility is where desktop compatiblity was in 1998 and it took more than 5 years to get manufacturers to agree on standards and another 5 for general support of the standards. With mobile it is going to be even worse because there are more manufacturers.

They're bullshit.

Bootstrap was written by some incredible nerds but php is where it's at.
