DPI curve doesn't work as intended?
My UMG widgets are set to a custom 720x1280 resolution as shown in the image provided.
I've adjusted the DPI scale using shortest size with the following keys.
480: 0.667 720: 1 1080: 1.5 1280: 1.778 1440: 2 1600: 2.222
I've tested scaling to work properly on the following devices: Moto E 2014: http://www.phonearena.com/phones/Motorola-Moto-E_id8654 Moto X 2014: http://www.phonearena.com/phones/Motorola-Moto-X-2014_id8897 LG G2: http://www.phonearena.com/phones/LG-G2_id7969 LG G3: http://www.phonearena.com/phones/LG-G3_id8347
The problem I'm having is that on some devices scaling is too large, despite the device resolution being handled in the DPI curve. Users are seeing the borders of images cut off.
I've received reports as scaling to be too large on the following devices: Samsung Galaxy S2: http://www.phonearena.com/phones/Samsung-Galaxy-S-II_id5106 Nexus 10: http://www.phonearena.com/phones/Google-Nexus-10_id7551 Samsung S5 Mini: http://www.phonearena.com/phones/Samsung-Galaxy-S5-mini_id8573
I suppose perhaps I'm missing something, but after quite of a lot of searching and testing, and asking around on multiple help sources no one can seem to figure it out.

I got some test results back from the S5 Mini user. They are seeing the layout as I saw it in the viewport with a 480x800 resolution. My conclusion is that their phone does not actually display at 720p, for whichever reason. Thus scaling might actually be working properly.
The problems with clipping that I was experiencing I believe was related to the anchor points. After adjusting some of the points the menus were more easily accessed; not all were perfect but acceptable. I'm assuming I'll have to tamper with anchor points again to perfect the display.
I did try to wrap everything as well but images were still too big in many cases.
CONCLUSION: problem is within the anchor points, not the DPI curve. Some of the phones which declare themselves as 720p don't seem to actually utilize a 720x1280 resolution but one much smaller.
