Mobile homepage banners are a bit different from regular banners in a few ways and need to have some special attention. As you can see below, some of the image is often blocked by phone browser menus, slide navigation buttons, etc. For this reason, it is important to keep any titles and important information at the top of the banner and away from the edges.
