    Question MMS compresses the pictures way too small when sending pictures.

    I first noticed it when a buddy sent me a picture from his HTC one . It was very small and not very detailed. I picked mine up on Friday and noticed when I sent a picture to my friends through mms that it was only sending 32 kb size pictures. The actual photos are .91 mb's. My question is short of emailing the picture is there anyway to send the photo in full resolution over mms? The stock messaging allows for up to 2mb so why does it compress it so much. I have switched to sending pictures with handcent, but that is not a real practical solution.

    But on a positive note I love the lowlight camera on the ONE

    Have you looked in your messaging settings?

    Yeah it says MMS size limit is 2 mb. Ive heard that even if you only add one picture it thinks its going to be a slideshow so it ultra compresses that image.

    Do you send the picture by itself or with text?

    By itself no text, even tried a old tick of cropping the photo a little bit, been toying around all weekend trying to figure it out. Really frustrating with how nice this camera is

    Are we sure it's not the screen resolution that's so high on the one that viewing a pic on the screen smaller?

    Pretty sure because even just sending it, it says the file going out is only 32 kb, which is very small. Its always been a problem with HTC senses messenger.

    I just posted a thread at the same time as you noting that the resolution of all picture messages is a pathetic 640x450. Da f*** is that?! And I too have the 2MB selected.

    I hadn't even noticed this until I saw this thread. That is pretty s*****. I'm gonna try Handcent or something a little later and see if it does the same thing.

    A little note, handcent was working fine, but it wasnt auto retreiving the MMS within the main app because I had turned off all notifications for handcent.

    Chompsms allows you to set no limit for sending pictures and has been the best way to send full size photos. Waiting now to see how it affects notifications and downloading! So its a hassle but it is a pretty light weight app and works great, i just sent a 1.38 mb image.

    Edit: This has been working best for me. Turning off notifications for Chompsms but turning on auto retrieve for MMS. When I receive a picture I get a notification from stock sense messaging app, and the picture is downloaded in both places automatically. Cant tell on sizes, but on stock it came in at 425kb and chomp came through at 436kb. hope this helps other people perplexed by this too

    I've been trying to figure it out for months. best thing to do is share one pic you don't want, then share the one you do want. (both in same message) remove the first and the one you want will send in normal quality.it sucks, but tthat's how you do it. also, you can't keep adding more in HQ, after the 2nd image, all others will also be low quality just like the first. I'm gonna look into contacting HTC to recommend an update for it. I'm surprised it hasn't been addressed yet.

    Do you have Sprint? Because I've had this problem ever since I got my One back in May, and was told by several people it was probably something to do with them. I have other friends who also have the One and they don't have this problem at all. The only thing that has helped me is Textra. It's been my SMS app for months now, and whenever I send photos to friends none of them are compressed whatsoever. You should try it out. I receive images just fine as well. It's been the perfect fix for me.

    +1 to this--I moved to Textra and they've made a lot of really great improvements. They update it pretty frequently
