I find this question hard to manage - isn't resolution a quantity, which is
measured in units of DPI?
How can screens of different DPI have the same resolution?

I thought the earlier answer of "you cannot sensibly use the sim for this
because the mouse is a terrible simulation of the thumbs, and because there's
generally a huge DPI mismatch between PC and device displays" made a pretty
good case why the simulator doesn't work well for this sort of development /
