    Why no text fit to window option?

    I just got my sgs2 and I must say I'm very disappointed with the feature rich phone because of one glaring oversight...The android system doesn't allow for fit text to window, which at my favorite site means either having to choose the crappy mobile site, or having to scroll left to right to left to right and up and down and up and back..etc. What a pain in the tukas, and if I can't figure a way to do that I will be returning the phone in search of one that does fit text to window like the iphone.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Yeah I know...samsuck sounds awful hostile, but you try browsing from left to right to left to right and up and down and round and round and you too will be a little hostile towards a company who doesn't seem to care how easy their customers browsing experience is.

    They make a app for that........OK now that I got the joke out of my system :P

    We had someone with a similar problem to yours and swore we fixed it without them needing to download a 3rd party browser *cough* Opera Mobile *cough*.

    What model is your phone and what carrier do you have?

    Also found this after hitting up the Google. You might find it interesting, just hope it applies to your model.

    Browser Text Wrap: Out of the box the Galaxy S2 doesnít automatically reflow the text in the webpage if you zoom in. But if you just go to settings and check the Ďauto-fit pagesí option, all is well again.

    User Agent Change: The browser lets you change the user-agent without needing an extra app, just type Ďabout:useragentí and you can choose between the iPhone, Nexus One, Desktop, Galaxy S or even enter a custom string.

    Hi Ronnie, it's the newest one 4g S2 T-mob and I tried that have it checked and still no go on fitting text to screen on zoom. Tried Dolphin and it wont do it either. Haven't tried Opera mobile though. Think it might work?

    It works alright for me. I'm pretty sure this is the effect your going for.
    Before I forget. Welcome to the forum.

    This is the page loaded normal.


    This is zoomed in with text wrapping on.

    Thank you. If the page can be scrolled left to right after zoom that's what I'm talking about. The iphone compresses it by elongating the page and still keeping the same aspect for the text, so no more 'loose' pages...the Galaxy doesn't. Very frustrating to have to scroll left and right to read a page post etc.

    You can still scroll left and right after zooming in. I say download Opera mobile from Google play store and give it a shot.

    The only time that I had issues with text reflow after enabling Autofit Pages was if there was an embedded image within the text. Works the same on the Note.
    Living dangerously, to me, is eating spaghetti with a white shirt on.
