So annoying! Wanted to use this but Samsung phones are too popular to ignore! Get on it Sam-Sam!

Having the same problem myself, glad to at least find a thread on this issue to know the manual workaround is the best option. Sucks though cause I just finished reading the web.dev section on responsive design which explicitly states NOT to assume small screens are touch screens, but in the end I suppose its going with the lesser of 2 evils...

Dear Samsung, please fix this to be in line with the rest of the web development world's best practices, thank you!

I think the best thing would be to remove this media query from CSS because it is not reliable. So the best thing to do first is not to use it at all.

See my device test page:
