    Default Galaxy S5 gallery thumbnails

    Hey guys,

    Having issue with thumbnails on the S5. Was working fine when it was new but now they are really bad quality for some reason. Looks like they have been compressed? Maybe something I have done? Issue in contacts/messages & photos. I have a 64gig mirco card. Maybe problem reading?

    Thank you for replying. New to android. Ex-iphone user. I have cleared cache on contacts/message/gallery/google+. Still displaying low quality thumbnails. Even the backup thumbnails on google photos are bad. Not sure if its because I bought a cheap mirco sd card off ebay but I have removed it this morning and will take some photos today and see if it makes any difference. I have factory reset twice with no change. Also have noticed thumbnails in google feed also bad. Im hoping its just a software bug an not the screen.

    I did a google search and found similar ones to your screen shots above both on my S5 in web and desktop view and on my touch screen laptop 1920x1080 display and those images are just poor quality you only really notice when you zoom in especially on your S5

    They are typically little 14k files just 140x90 pixels

    Ok so it is normal. Thanks, just needed to know if anyone else was having these issues. No not in power saving mode, normal mode. Do you have any problems with your contact/message/photo thumbnails?
