Delphi 10.2.2 on Android

I just added all the sizes of splash screens to my project. The splash screens appear to take up only about 2/5 of the screen, both in portrait and landscape.

The splash screens fill the screen on iPad for the same project.

What would cause splash screens to not fit the Android device?

Which Android device?
If I remember correctly there are further options on that settings page. Did you change anything there?

It's a Kindle Fire, 1024x552.

Both the Tile and Gravity settings were left blank.

1. did you try different settings for Tile and gravity?
2. did you try on any other device than the Kindle Fire? That one might be a bit special...

after having too many problems with Splash Screen,
(some of them i describe here :
https://forums.embarcadero.com/thread.jspa?threadID=282829&tstart=30 )
i gave up on trying to use it.

instead, i made my first\main screen as "lite-weight" as possible (a basic buttons menu with an image)
i put a rectangle with my splash-picture in it to show, and made it disappear after 2-3 seconds...
