Hello,

do older mobile and tablet browsers recognise media queries?

I use conditional comments to load an upgrade browser screen for users on IE 8 and older that don't recognise media queries. Just been thinking if I need to do something for older mobile/tablet browsers or if they would all use the media queries?

Thanks!

Well lots of luck with that.  Here are a couple support list:

http://caniuse.com/#feat=css-mediaqueries
https://litmus.com/help/email-clients/media-query-support/

However they just represent general support for media queries.  The properties they actually support is another story, some may not support orientation, there may be some differences in how they interpret dimension, and in general the only way to be sure of how any device will respond is to test the device version/OS version combinations individually.

I don't know of any comprehensive list because it is very volatile as mobile is still a wild frontier where standards are being ignored, warped, and abused by most manufacturers.
