Also i have a columns of some screen widths, ad sizes etc. Is it better to convert them to categorical variables.
Normally we consider yes, no, true, false, etc as categorical variable

Is the data categorical? If you generalize them into certain bins (10-50, 51-100, 101-150, etc) as opposed to each observations specific value then yes, that is categorical data.
Otherwise measurements of length are continuous numerical data.
