Device Pixel Ratio in Developer Tools ?

  • Vivaldi Translator

    Following the latest 1.10 snapshot, I decided to play a bit with the Developer Tools and I'm experiencing some trouble defining my Lumia 650 mobile phone as a device. In particular the Device Pixel Ratio setting is unclear to me.

    Setting the Device Pixel Ratio to any number e.g. {0.75, 1, 1.5, 1.75, 2, 3, 5, 10} does not seem to make any difference to the View of the website (e.g. this forum). It just stays the same.
    Yet the text is displayed smaller than on the device I'm holding in my hand which I'm trying to replicate.
    My phone setup uses 175% UI scaling but this value (1.75) too does not make any difference.

    I pulled the user agent string from

    • Mozilla/5.0 (Windows Phone 10.0; Android 6.0.1; Microsoft; Lumia 650) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/52.0.2743.116 Mobile Safari/537.36 Edge/15.15063

    Am I doing something wrong or am I expecting too much here?
    The same thing is happening in Google Chrome, so it may be a general issue in the Developers Tools
