    When I take pictures on my phone, they are some of the most amazing pictures I've seen in my life on a smartphone. The detail is outstanding, but when I upload them to sites, the pictures look very very very blurry.. Any suggestions?

    Post one or two here.....so ya know, we can see what you are talking about...what sites? Understand that your carrier limits the quality, it's not the phone....and maybe the site has its limits as well.

    Same problem as these site, that will print your photo in one hour. You are limited by the band with of the carrier as well as the place doing the processing of the photos. It's tough when you have 16 mega- pixels on the front end and end up with half of that being lost.

    Exactly, and at what point is it really a 16mb pic? When you go to edit and do anything your option is to save it as a 4mb or 8mb and it goes into the studio folder.....so was it 16mb before being edited and enhanced?

    There's a slight blur but I wouldn't say it was terrible and I would say that I think it is more of a carrier and site issue than your phone. iphones are the only phone that will look perfect because they use apples servers as opposed to your carriers....it is what it is....but if you're just trying to send someone a pic of a house, dog, car etc I don't think it is too blurry for someone to not be able to make out what it is

    Same thing happens to me when I was taking pictures of my old phone and uplaoding them to Kijiji. The Wind network made a mess of it, but when i used my Wifi it was considerably clearer. However I think maybe transferring to a computer through a cable and then uploading may be the best way? I will do an experiment for us upload the same pic for yas in different ways.
    Here is transferred from phone to computer via then uploaded.

    Well idk, I was about to sign into the app on my phone and uplaod the same pic directly to the site, eliminating picasa. I think that like apple, picasa must have its own server dedicated to the media files and maintaining the quality, as well as synching to all devices etc. But when your sending the picture over an inferrior network that limits whats being put through it does degrade the quality. Thats called packet loss isnt it?
    For best picture uploads Ide put it all on Picasa and do it from there. It is a hastle, but you will get the quality your looking for.
    Until the network can support the full capabilities of the GS5 there will be many issues like this. The phone can handle up to like 60mbps but my WIND network peaks at like 28.something. The phone is great, but it is difficult to take full advantage of.
    Hope that makes some sense
    EDIT:
    Picasa is actually kinda cool to have. Auto uploads and ya can sit down and view them all in an organized fasion via browser or the Picasa program itself. Maintains the quality wherever you sign into view it until it gets sent somewhere 3rd party via a wireless connection. Give a try let me know what you think!

    Yeah I know about how networking works, I know about packet lost which is why I tried a stable internet connection and its still doing the same thing but I'll try again, thanks for your feedback! ☺

    Ok, but remember regardless of packet loss due to unstable network, when uploading to 3rd party websites, emailing or texting a picture it is usually automatically downsized. The picture I uploaded then downloaded from Picasa kept the whole file the whole way through, never lost any of it.
    The phone is performing on its end, I wouldnt worry about that. You just have to figure out how to take full advantage of it!
    Best of luck mate happy to help!

    Wait I'm confused. So you're saying that Picasa is a first party place for pictures and to upload them there then share it on Facebook and etc so it doesn't get down sized?

    Yup. Share photos from the Picasa program/app itself and I think that will work. Dont share the file thats on your phone, but the one on the Picasa server. You should be able to see both photos from the same spot, on your phone. Just the saved location is different.
    Let me know!

    Hmm. Might be worth checking the speed of your connections. My 4g data is **** doesnt even hit 30 mbps. Remember thats bits not bytes. Using the Picaso seems to upload to full file size still though even when the connect is brutal. It just takes forever or fails.
    When texting a picture with the regular text application that comes on the phone the downsize is rediculous. You can get 3rd party texting apps that support MMS without any compression/degradation. Check the app store. As long as the recipient's device can support the file size it works well.
    Hope that helps!
    Dont forget its pretty easy to plug your phone into your computer, and copy the pictures over that way. Definately no packet loss there!

    EDIT:
    And your right its definately not the phone, It really just packet loss and/or compression. Eventually the networks will catch up to the phones.... maybe....
