Question PRIV screen cut off on the edges.

Please Login to Remove!

I was using iPhones for about 4 years straight and then I have switched to BB PRIV. I have re-downloaded apps that I liked on the iPhone and straight away I have noticed that the screen inside of all the games is cut on the edges... to a point that sometimes it is hard to press items/butons located near the edge.

In games like Plauge Inc. where you have a world wide view when pop-up shows up on Greenland it is half cut off, and that is just one example of many.

I was going through Google app store searching for anything that can affect or change projected screen size/ratio in gaming apps and I have found out application that can do that require "root access" which is impossible on PRIV due to security level.

Has anybody else noticed that? If yes is there known way to fix this issue, or we have to wait untill BB/Google will be notified and then they will fix it?

Halp!

You might try changing the font character size to a smaller one.
Settings, display, font size.

It may offer a smaller screen view during gaming allowing more to be seen.
I tried it on a Z10 and it did show more of the web page I used.

Hi tsac,
I did that long time ago, however changing font size in phone options is not changing the application (games in this case) screen size nor the font in them.

It looks like the picture is cut where the screen-curve was made, on boths sides.
Hopefully someone will report that to BB/Google so they can release a hot-fix or something.
