Poor image quality (web/pictures/misc.)

I just purchased my Samsung yesterday, changing from an iPhone 3G.

The iPhone 3G never had image quality issues, whether web browsing, Facebook, or otherwise.

Opening my Web app, I noticed horrible looking icons, browsing through various sites, FAV icons included, anything graphic had poor quality to it. Weird.

Facebook app, looking through the same photos I've seen before, low quality.

I tried different web browsers, same issue. It was the way the phone was reading the images and using them.



This was also the same issue which was asked but not answered in a previous thread about photo degradation, where photos transferred to the phone degrade in quality, and even size (both dimension-wise and file size-wise.)



I've Googled 'til my hands are cracked and dry, T-Mobile support is no help at all. I cannot figure it out and no one seems to have complaints about image quality and if an iPhone 3G can have good image quality, I expect this phone should do the same, if not better. Inception looks gorgeous?any images do not.

This does not affect default graphics, i.e. text, menus, app icons in the home interface, it's strictly images I try to download, or the Internet, or even Facebook app.


Thanks in advance...

I would like to add that any images I create with the phone are fine, i.e. photos taken with the phone itself, or photos taken with third-party photo apps.

I have figured out how to keep image file intergrity when transferring files.

Now it's just an issue of web/app-based image viewing...

The image quality on the web seems to have resolved itself?

One of two things were done:

Turning off "Power Saving Mode," where the brightness of the screen is adjusted to images (though this did not work last night while testing) and downloading Opera.

Only after test-browsing with Opera did the images look normal. To see if it was a platform issue, i.e WebKit versus Gecko, I went back into Web and Firefox. Now images are looking the way they are supposed to. Facebook is now showing quality images as well, hopefully this is a permanent fix now.
