Wallpaper Crop Bug??
Just got an Intercept as it doesn't look like they'll have any EVO's very soon. So far, I'm "mildly" pleased with the phone, but it has issues. I am particularly bothered by trying to add/change a wallpaper that will even look remotely like the photo I'm using.
When you select an image to set as the wallpaper, the phone automatically forces you to crop the image. This wouldn't be a problem if the aspect ratio of the "crop box" wasn't "fixed" to a default (and incorrect) aspect ratio. If I drag "up", the box expands to both sides as well, and stops when it reaches the edges. At that point you can no longer drag the crop up/down to use the entire image as is. When the image appears on the home screen, it is a distorted mess of what you start out with.
In an effort to work around this, I intentionally "squeezed" an image down to approx. the same height (top to bottom) that would fit the "forced crop" box. Even doing this, when the image is shows up on the home screen, it is still distorted!! Anyone heard anything of a fix for this??
