    I have a 4K Samsung Smart TV. Recently I had to replace my Note for with an LG V10. So far a much more amazing phone but when I cast from the Gallery app I get a tiny little thumbnail in the center of the screen.

    If I use the Samsung Smart View app that is made for my TV the image renders to the TV's full resolution.

    Is there a way to fix this? It's a bit more cumbersome to use the SmartView app over the native application.

    Are you certain you're casting the full photo, and not just the thumbnail file? Check the Info/Details of the photo you're casting -- is it 4 or 5 MB in size, or only a few dozen KB?

    Thanks for the reply!

    I had checked the info when it happened. The resolution showed the original full size which was in excess of 4K.

    However, these were also images I had downloaded to my phone from my backup. I have some shots I've taken since with the V20. I'll try tonight and see how they work.

    The new photos taken on the phone have the same issue. It seems to only cast a thumbnail. It could be a V20 issue with the app.

    How exactly are you casting to the TV? Using Chromecast? DLNA?

    I'm not sure but it is built in to my Samsung TV. It is a 2016 model. I just click the cast icon and the TV shows up as a target.

    Do other things cast normally, like videos, YouTube, etc? What if you cast from the Google Photos app?

    I don't see an option to cast from that app. I only get the option to share. The play store notes seem to indicate it supports casting. But the Samsung smartview app does work.

    I will try YouTube when I get home. I also have a fire tv. I can try that as well.

    Where's the cast icon you're talking about? Is it in the Quick Settings when you swipe down the notification panel?
