    Hello! I'm sorry you are going through this! Try turning your network connections off and then on again, and see what happens. Are you using the messaging app that came with your phone? If you are, try downloading a third-party messaging app like Textra and see if the issue still persists. Also, make sure that the specific messaging app you're using is set as your default messaging app.

    Let us know what happens!

    have you tried a different text app? google messages or textra? That would narrow it down to whether it is an app issue or network issue. What about messaging? Whatsapp, allo or telegram?

    You came from imessage, and you now have to see the sorry state that is android messaging. The basic text app is just that, a basic sms app, no different than on a basic phone, better interface and keyboard but that is it. So when you send a picture message it gets downgraded to junk quality. There are other, better options like whatsapp, hugely popular and works like imessage, just no sms downgrade. However, getting those lazy iphone users to switch apps can be like pulling claws our of a grizzly. In the near future there will be some drastic changes. Do a search on RMS. To much info to type it all.

    One option to share full sized vids to imessage is to use the sharing app built into your phone. When you take a pic or vid, hit the share button and it will give you the option to use link sharing, then it will let you choose which app. It will send a link they can view in full resolution. I freely admit it is not nearly as nice as just using the built in sharing inside of your messanger, nor will it show the video thumbnail inline in the messenger. But it does work, and it only takes a few seconds longer. This, however, is not nesessary if using Whatsapp or telegram, allo, line, kakao, wechat, ect. Just for the stock sms app.

    Send them as a link and the video will be clear and the other party can download if they want.
