How to get responsive design in Moodle 2.6 clean install

Update: Moodle 2.7 is now using Clean theme by default, therefore this is not applicable anymore.

Moodle in their release page, mentions one of their new updated main feature is the responsive design. I am getting excited, because with this new responsive design, user experience will be enhanced as the site will be responding to the device screen resolution size.

But when I tried to install into my local development by downloading their latest stable release, the resolution is not changing based on the page size! Tried to access it using my mobile, and it still showing the same non responsive design.

Then I tried to look the setting, under appearance, to see whether I need to enable responsive design setting first, but no luck. I can not find this setting anywhere.

And then I tried to Google it. As this is a new release, so I still unable to find anyone that has the same problem as me (Or maybe it's just me being unlucky?)

After trying for some times, finally I realised the themes that Moodle use in their website is different than mine. The one that I downloaded has Moodle default theme and it looks a bit different. Tried to find the closest theme to the picture on Moodle website, and found out that it use Clean theme. After installed this theme, then the responsive is finally working. Even when I access this trough my mobile, the resolution change automatically.

I feel weird that Moodle showing responsive as their main feature, but the admin needs to change the theme first to get it working?
