Lightroom mobile (Android): Issue with tablet/phone mode

I've been using Lightroom mobile on my smartphone. Since my font and display size is set low (higher DPI), I'm only able to use the tablet mode, in which the editing panels come on the right side of the screen when editing. It's convenient to edit in portrait (which is phone mode), but it automatically switches to tablet mode due to my desired DPI. As a result, with the tablet mode, I can't use the Lightroom camera app too

Lightroom Camera is disabled on tablets, or on phone as well if the user has set the minimum width of the device to be greater than 510dp.  Set to a lower dpi to ensure phone -enabled operations.

Thanks for the reply. Now the phones are getting more bigger and taller if you follow the phone market space. For someone whose have good eyes, they would definitely set it above 540dp, whereby I use 590-ish dp. I believe it's indeed a needed feature to toggle tablet vs phone layout if it's installed on a phone.

Editing in landscape mode (screen rotation) is okeyish but it's too much hassle to edit 9x16 ratio phones. A toggle for phone vs tablet view would be much appreciated
