Has anyone noticed that the sides of the screen when playing certain games is actually badly scaled, so the game is essentially playing off screen.

Only about 5mm on each side. But in certain circumstances you can miss something.

I use FHD, couple of the games I've noticed it on is Arkanoid Vs Space invaders (great game)

Sonic forces (not so Great)

Same thing on QHD.

Is this just a bug in OnePlus' new system? Or is it an Android 12 /12.1 issue?

Cheers

I just tried to duplicate what you mentioned but was unable to replicate this. Did you by any chance change the fonts/display/installed a different font? I do recall from my OnePro 7 days when i had display font/zoom combo set too high and I was unable to use few apps with the same effect you mentioned here. Just a thought:)

Oooh I'm not too sure but I have only replicated what I used to have on my 8 pro, never had this issue.

Let me have a look. It's worth a punt.

I am getting old so need slightly bigger fonts 😭

Here's my display settings for font and display.

Both at default.

DPI is also unchanged.

Tested all settings within scaling with no affect.

Also this does not affect all apps, only the two I mentioned and potentially others.. if you didn't test with them apps then it wouldn't be a valid test.

Unless you did. Then I'm stumped.
