I want the Confluence desktop UI on tablets but the mobile UI on phones

Is this possible without recompiling com.atlassian.confluence.plugins.mobile.MobileUtils ?

I'm looking at this code in particular:

private static final Pattern MOBILE_USER_AGENT_REGEX = Pattern.compile("(iPhone;|iPad;|iPhone Simulator;|iPod;|Linux; U; Android)");
  private static final Pattern ANDROID_CHROME = Pattern.compile("Chrome/[.\\d]* Mobile");
  private static final Pattern OLD_ANDROID = Pattern.compile("Linux; U; Android (?:[23]\\.\\d|4\\.0\\.[12])");


  public static boolean isSupportedUserAgent(HttpServletRequest request)
    String userAgent = request.getHeader("user-agent");

    return (StringUtils.isNotBlank(userAgent)) && (!OLD_ANDROID.matcher(userAgent).find()) && ((MOBILE_USER_AGENT_REGEX.matcher(userAgent).find()) || (ANDROID_CHROME.matcher(userAgent).find()));

This is exactly what we'd like to do as well.

We had display problems when viewing our site on a mobile device, for example unable to show images and some macros would not display the content, but found by *disabling* the Confluence Mobile plugin, it now displays perfectly on IOS devices, but is now squished in the top-left corner on Android devices.

If you found any solution or workarounds, please can you share?
