    Default Sprint Note 3: screen resolution

    So seemingly over night my screen resolution went to **** on most images. Even thumb nails that once were crystal clear are pixilated beyond beleif. Has any one had an issue like this? I didnt think you could change screen resolutions...

    Ummm... you can't, unless you somehow zoomed into the screen or are using an app that is showing the wrong resolution assets (if the app 'thinks' your phone has a lower resolution, it'll use it's low-res assets instead of the high-res ones needed for the Note 3). Oh, and I guess that if you're rooted and you modify the right line of configuration code with the wrong info, you can 'trick' all apps into thinking your screen is of a lower resolution.

    Can you post a picture? Is this happening throughout the entire phone, or just an app?

    Take a screenshot. See if it shows up in it. If so, post it.

    Not that i know of. My prox sensor doesnt work to shut the screen of when i make a call so its always on. Everytime i talk on the phone i turn on gps, switch to vibrate and have gone as deep as alarm settings with just my cheek touching the screen.

    So i backed up my contacts and did a factory reset. I think the problem originated from the last firmware update not taking well. Along with the resolution issues some apps were not working correctly. After the reset my resolution is back to normal and theres some new apps added that didnt show up when i updated last.

    Glad to know you got it sorted (this is the second case I've seen of this happening, by the way, but on different phones!).
