Ok, I'm new to the Electrify myself...1 day new to be exact, but I am a true Android lover & will never go back.
I *believe* the picture zoom you are seeing is due to the fact that it is spread over the 7 screens. As I have been looking for an answer to a question I have, I have noticed several people want to lower the number of screens, but I haven't seen a tried and true response yet. Sorry.
The best thing I can suggest is to keep playing with it, check the Motorola site, and watch the boards. DOn't get disheartened, you wont believe how many things I figured out on my old Mesmerize by playing trying to figure something else out!!!! LOL Good luck.
