Dear Experts,

my samsung android phone is 480*854 resolution after reporting from javascript code as follows

window.screen.availWidth;
window.screen.availHeight;
window.devicePixelRatio;

Question-1
-----------------
The device pixel ratio is 1.5 ,  So  it should be reported in unit of point (pt) for those width and height, right ? And what is the best way to detect the phone device resolution ?

So I try to test it and put the background image well fit into the body of html5 page
using css with background-size:720pt 1281pt ; (i.e 480*1.5pt 854*1.5pt)  But it just  almost close to fit to the whole body  becoz the width of display image  is not like 480*1.5pt , it seems like the width is 440*1.5pt and the image height is well fitted .So I believe what I wrote above might be something  wrong,  Please point it out if so,



Please advise

Duncan
