I don't have one  of these phones. I went to the Docomo shop on the way
home yesterday and was able to view the page on it but could not get or
send a screenshot.

The size of the black rectangle relative to the cats image looks
slightly smaller than on my PC and I'd say the right edge of it is
further to the left of the image than on my PC but overall the result is
broadly similar.

Regular  text on web pages is very small. It really isn't practical to
read it without zooming in. So I suspect they are using 2x thus making
CSS pixels smaller. There's probably a certain amount of chicken & egg
here. How much content would break on devices with a 3:1 device:css
ratio? That concern probably stops device makers setting 3x even when
they really should.
