    How do you deal with responsive design when some phones have 1080 resolution? Wouldn't those phones see the full site?

    Would that be a problem?

    You can use media queries for any size screen.

    But if you used one for a 1080px screen, it would, in theory, also affect desktop machines.

    I just don't think it makes sense to see the exact same layout on a 1080 phone and a 1080 monitor/TV.

    Why?

    Well, just a personal thought. I developed my own theme and now want to make it responsive so I wanted to verify if the topic discussed above is an issue or not for clients.

    I plan on using resolution media queries in CSS and wanted to make sure that's the proper way or if I need to do anything else. If a client of mine asks me why can't the site look mobile on a 1080 phone I want to make sure it can't be done or at least give him the correct answer.

    I'd suggest that you get your client to clarify what s/he means by "look mobile". :-)
