    Definitely with you on the math. I much prefer the numbers that multiples of 360 give me.

    However, if you're using something like Skala to preview your mocks, everything would look a little smaller in real life than in your mockups.

    If you're following the Material guidelines, this probably doesn't matter too much; you're going to be spacing things at 8dp, 16dp, 24dp, etc. regardless of how it looks on a test device.

    If you're creating your own layout guidelines, however—and you want to be sure you're seeing what the end user will see—then using the correct scale becomes more important.
