Dumb question about the DS screen size.

Post by zdriafph » Mon Oct 02, 2017 2:08 am

Not sure where to post about this since it's not about the emulator itself, so I'm posting here.

I own a galaxy S7 which has a 5.1'' 16:9 screen.
The original Nintendo DS (and DS Lite) has a DUAL 3.1'' screen but it has a 4:3 aspect ratio. :ds:

Putting these numbers in this website: http://www.displaywars.com shows the image on bottom of this post.

Soo... does it means my 5.1'' 16:9 screen Galaxy S7 can perfectly fit two 3.1'' 4:3 screens and a little more?

I was messing around playing some games with the vertical orientation but I thought everything was so small so decided to research these things, haven't touched a DS for some years so my memory is not helping....

At 1280x768, 16:10, my device could fit both screens at 3x pefectly with space to work on the gap as needed. DS screen resolution was 256x192 on both screens, so no reason to anything being small outside of habit on a 1440p phone. 16:9 also means the gap could be made bigger if necessary.
