.slider-container{
	 height:760px;
	 background-image:url(../imgs/slider.jpg); 
	 position:relative;
}

@media (min-width: 1629px) {
	.slider-container{
	height:100px;
	background-image:none;
	background-color: #ff0000;
	position:relative;
	}
}

Open in new window



Im using this css to change the div content on smaller screens (from an image to a solid bg color)
The website always looks the same on both the mac and the iphone.

If I go above min-width: 1300px I get the red solid background color anything below that displays the image.
The issue is the same thing happens on all size devices just the same...

I would put the word screen after media.
also try a max-width instead of a min-width .

and try this version....


.slider-container{
       height:760px;
       background-image:url(../imgs/slider.jpg);
       position:relative;
}

@media  screen and (max-device-width: 800px)

 {
      
      .slider-container{
      height:100px;
      background-image:none;
      background-color: #ff0000;
      position:relative;
      }
}

Are you sure you don't have any other css in there.
Can you link to the page or make a test page at jsfiddle.net
