See how aspects of the Bootstrap grid system work across multiple devices with a handy table.

Extra small devices Phones (<768px) Small devices Tablets (≥768px) Medium devices Desktops (≥992px) Large devices Desktops (≥1200px)
Grid behavior Horizontal at all times Collapsed to start, horizontal above breakpoints
Class prefix .col-xs- .col-sm- .col-md- .col-lg-
# of columns 12
Column width Auto ~62px ~81px ~97px
Gutter width 30px (15px on each side of a column)
Nestable Yes
Offsets Yes
Column ordering Yes

Example:

Don't want your columns to simply stack in smaller devices? Use the extra small and medium device grid classes by adding .col-xs-* .col-md-* to your columns. See the example below for a better idea of how it all works.

documentation

<!-- Stack the columns on mobile by making one full-width and the other half-width -->
					<div class="row">
						<div class="col-xs-12 col-md-8">.col-xs-12 .col-md-8</div>
						<div class="col-xs-6 col-md-4">.col-xs-6 .col-md-4</div>
					</div>

					<!-- Columns start at 50% wide on mobile and bump up to 33.3% wide on desktop -->
					<div class="row">
						<div class="col-xs-6 col-md-4">.col-xs-6 .col-md-4</div>
						<div class="col-xs-6 col-md-4">.col-xs-6 .col-md-4</div>
						<div class="col-xs-6 col-md-4">.col-xs-6 .col-md-4</div>
					</div>

					<!-- Columns are always 50% wide, on mobile and desktop -->
					<div class="row">
						<div class="col-xs-6">.col-xs-6</div>
						<div class="col-xs-6">.col-xs-6</div>
					</div>
