I have a question about the difference in template size between Animate CC and XD for Android in particular.

Android in ANCC is: 480 x 800

while in XD it is: phone X/XS (Android) 360 x 640

which is a difference of 0.75 W and 0.8 H, so not even an even proportion.

So why the difference? Why is animate template the wrong size? Am I missing something?

I found this good article about the sizes and it seems like XD is the correct size.

Hi, res.

What I can tell you is that this Android template size that comes with ANCC is very old.

If I remember correctly, it comes from the time when developers could still target specific screen sizes instead of making their apps adapt to any screen like we do today.

I guess this was the common resolution from the majority of Android phones by that time.

Regards,

JC
