I was facing a similar problem some time back, when I was writing an android app, and wanted to test it in the emulator with the display settings of the phone.
This is how I set up android emulator for samsung galaxy s2.
- In Eclipse, go to Windows to start AVD Manager.
- Select the AVD that you have created already, and click on edit.
- Set resolution to 480 * 800. Click Edit AVD.
- Click on Start. Select Scale display to real size. Set screen size to 4.3. For monitor dip, click on the “?”, enter your monitor’s Screen size and select its current resolution. Click ok. Click Launch.
