    Picture quality lost when sent to Galaxy S4

    Hi guys, am nu here. But I have a question.

    This happens all the time, even when I receive pictures by SMS.

    I emailed myself a few pictures which have outstanding quality. Really clear and such... when I open them on my galaxy, the picture loses SO MUCH quality. It looks so crappy almost blurry.
    This also happens when receiving pictures on my GOSMS, even with 5MB limit size allowed under my settings. Anyone have a fix?

    SMS does NOT allow HD imagery on ANY phone. The maximum size of SMS images is carrier dependant.

    Does this apply to Emails too? The pics are not HD but when I get them on my galaxy, holy crap they are horrible. Had the same carrier for 4 years, i got the pictures just the way I sent them when i had my iPhone. Could be some setting on the phone maybe?

    No, it does not apply to email.

    Note that the S4 screen is HD. So if your images are "lowdef" they will have to be upscaled. The S4 should still look quite good, even upscaling (unless the images are poor quality).

    There a so many first posts with "weird" issues like these that I suspect alterier motives.

    ULTERIOR motives like what? I kind of know what you're hinting toward, no one is here to bash the Galaxy and praise the iPhone, after I got my Galaxy i will never touch that kid's phone. Im just wondering whats going on. I typed things on google and no answers came up so I just googled "Galaxy S4 Forums" and bam, im here.

    I kind of get what you mean with the upscaling and stuff... still it would be nice to receive pictures the way they are sent.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to insult you, but there are lot of first posts with seemily strange problems and previous iPhone users.

    There is no reason that an image sent by email will be any different than the orginal. SMS is different.

    If some are not too personal, maybe you should attach some here for us to look at.

    I'm having the exact same problem. Looked all over the web and must not be too common. I've tried 3rd party apps and messed with every setting I could find and still terrible pics coming through. If any has a solution please let know.

    Are you sending the pictures through email or as attachments? If you send them in the field they will be compressed. If you send them by attachment they will be untouched and should retain full HD quality.

    Even after you download them to the phone? Maybe you are just viewing the "preview" image.
