It seems that You are using absolute pixel sizes for the widgets. Since the Android device has a higher DPI than your Desktop, Qt will use a font with bigger default pixel size, but it will in this case not adjust the widget size.

Solution: Try putting the widgets into a layout manager, then the widgets will expand accordingly and the fonts should not be cut off.
