How to show full calendar funtion in mobile/tablet?

Dear all,
As you know Salesforce lightning Calendar function is very good in PC side, like:
  1. View by Day, Week, Month, Table, or even for Available to check team calendar;
  2. Also support create a calendar based on Campaign and other object with different color
User-added image

But in mobile/tablet side can only(Sales usually only take mobile or tablet, not PC):
  • View by week;
  • Can not see the difference color event, also cannot see Campaign and other object record which can view in PC calendar;
So we try to use mobile/tablet web browser to see the full site layout same with PC; When we open the browser and login, it showed lightning UI also weak function in Calendar:
User-added imageSo we click the "full site" link:
User-added imageBUT, it only can display Classic layout, NOT same as PC side:
User-added imageNO "Switch to Lightning Experience" link, and even i manually key-in the lightning url, still turn to the classic UI!
So how can let user see the full calendar function within mobile/tablet?
Many thanks!

Hi Coby & All,
I found the solution both for iPad and Android tablet, share with you guys:
  • iPad: in Salesforce setup, find "Lightning Experience on iPad Browsers (Beta)"(Setup-->Apps-->Mobile Apps-->Lightning Experience on iPad Browsers (Beta)), click enable;
User-added image
Then visit Salesforce via Safari browser:
User-added image
  • Android: open Chrome browser in your tablet, click "..." and choose "Desktop site" option, then login Salesforce:
User-added image
After login, it will show the same UI with PC:

To get around this it might be worth installing a package from the appexchange that gives the view of a custom calendar, which will then be visible on mobile.
I do agree with you that the calendar on mobile looks pretty rubbish!
Here are some appex packages which might workaround
