Text input fields not responding properly to media queries on Samsung Galaxy 4S

We have setup some responsive media queries on this page:
http://www.webcemeteries.com/memorials/default.asp?id=5706101

The text input boxes and textareas:

@media only screen and (max-width: 35em){
input[type=text],textarea{max-width:100%;}
}

Open in new window


It works fine in my browsers and on my iPhone 5s. Client is opening the page on a Samsung Galaxy 4S and sent me the attached screenshot. Not sure why my CSS is not working on this device? Would appreciate any advice.

Thank you!

Seems the rendering engine has a mind of its own. Most simple solution? Just use 90% (as you have no influence on the rendering engine of someone else)
Also, tested 90% on Note 4, Opera browser.
