I am using android studio and am currently working on my own app but i noticed something that doesn't make sense.
My layout in android studio looks different than on my phone when i actually run the app.
Some buttons or textviews display slightly more right or left etc. than it displays in the layout editor in android studio.
The only way i can get them to display in the correct positions on my phone is to actually position them in the wrong places in android studio.
My screen size in android studio is set correctly and matches my phone's display so i don't know why this is happening.
Is the SDK level (Android version) used for your program in Android Studio the same as your physical device?
Have you gotten around to use the HDPI, LDPI layout directories?
What is the type of view for your root view?
How are you positioning the elements (absolute, relative)?
How are you spacing/placing the elements using DP, Pixels, etc?
