Why do posts look messed up on my phone?

Post by jseabolt » Thu Aug 09, 2018 9:18 am

I've noticed this in the past and it bothered me for awhile so I decided to look into it. Just to see if it was me or my cellphone.

Last night I was reading a reply on my cell phone concerning the post I wrote about the VW/Audi auxiliary water pump. As I was reading my post I noticed allot of the words and punctuation was out of order. Particularly on the right hand side of the screen. I thought to myself, "Did I write that"?

I'm not the best at writing, but don't think I'm any worse than anybody else. I take advantage of the spell checking and try to use proper grammar and re-read my posts at least twice before I hit submit just to make sure it looks legible.

So today I looked it up on the computer and my post looks just fine.

Any of you guys ever notice this? I'm using a MOTO Z phone with the Android operating system a Chrome browser.

No issues at all on an Apple iphone with Safari. Probably because you're the only person left on the planet using a Motorola.

Well it's a one year old phone..

What's wrong with Motorola phones anyway ? At least they don't catch fire like Samsungs! My wife has had nothing but problems with Galaxy phones. Her last Galaxy was defective right out of the box.

Can't see paying $800 or more bucks on an Apple phone. Or anything made by Apple for that matter.

That's funny. The Moto Z sells for $756 on Verizon. You're a shrewd negotiator, James. :D

I think I got mine for less than $300. Of course I've been a customer for 10 years and they gave me a discount on this phone if I renewed my contract.

My MOTO Z isn't the top of the line but it works for me. My previous Driod mini lasted for about four or five years. The battery was starting to get weak so I just decided to upgrade. My daughter plays with my old phone. Verizon said it was worth $6.00 on trade in!

Honestly I'm not sure but it isn't a mirafiori issue - lots of us use the site on mobile. Did you change the theme by any chance?

I'm not sure what the deal is. Not sure about the themes either.

If you didn't change themes - or don't know how - then they aren't the issue. Other causes may be font settings on your phone, browser settings, browser cache.
