Web Browser Display 8.4
OK, like the title says I'm curious as to how web pages display in either Chrome or the Samsung browser, forgive me if I don't know the Sammy browser name. I'm trying to decide between a iPad Mini Retina and a Samsung 8.4. I'm leaning towards the Samsung, I want the Samsung, but 90% of what I'll ultimately do with it is browse the web.
I have an iPad mini non-retina that I'm selling to a friend. Web pages display nice, like they were designed to fit and operate on that screen. What I mean is go to a site like Yahoo. On the iPad the the picture at the top (main stories you can click on) is full and looks like it fits on the screen with no distortion. Smaller stories underneath the main stories look formatted nice and not all out of whack.
Now, on the 8.4 the story on the top has a real thin narrow picture, cannot see but the middle 30% or so of the picture and you cannot see any of the caption underneath. I was playing with one at Best Buy tonight and the BB dude didn't know why it looked so funky either. You can do the request desktop site, which I don't have issue with, but then the whole menu on the left of the yahoo web page just stayed docked to the left side of the screen and was laid over everything else as you moved around.
Anyone experience browsing issues like this? A fix for it? Just something funny with their demo unit? I don't need to get into the pros and cons of each device, believe me, if I'm picking a side it's Android by a landslide.
My solution is not to hunt down and use apps for the different websites, I want to use the browser.
Thanks in advance.
