    This is my first Droid, so far everything is excellent except this one thing is driving me crazy.

    Contact list looks fine with the small images, but when I get a phone call the small image is larger and very pixelated.

    Other more annoying problem is that I actually like the quick contact Motorola widget, but if you make the picture any bigger than one square it stretches it out and makes it look like crap. Is there a simple fix I am overlooking?

    I tried using a high quality picture for the contact picture, but it doesn't seem to work at all. =(

    That's not that funny considering this phone isn't exactly showing up the iphone on out of box reliability.

    Yeah, but that's missing the point. Screenshots in advertisements (yes, I am aware they are "simulated") show a hi-quality picture for the in-call screen. Plus, if you can take a hi-quality photo and set it to your contact, that should be the picture that appears, not a pixelated piece of crap that looks like it expanded the thumbnail rather than draw from the actual photo set to the contact (same problem as DROID). The consumer should not be expected to shell out $$ for a third-party app to do what the phone should do OOTB.
