    Every HTC I've had has been like that. Evo 4g > evo 3d > evo lte. However on the one...if it's a pic from facebook, it's blurry. If it's a pic that I assigned manually, it is clear.

    Maybe blurry isn't the right word. The pictures have some kind of pixelated effect. There is no way to change that?

    I noticed they have some type of dots filter on them so the larger picture looks like crap.

    here's what I did
    open the contact touch the picture it gets larger with a setting in the bottom right corner. Choose that and then from the choices choose phone and the picture cleared right up. Did not work with every picture so I deleted those and got new one's from gallery / facebook or where ever.

    Thanks for getting me that far! I did not have the phone option. However, if you still have the picture saved on your phone you can select gallery and go back to it and resave it or re-crop it and it does exactly what you said. All my facebook contacts are ok. This particular picture was just an older camera photo that I use for a non facebook contact.

    Is this not just an intended design/look for the screen view when you make a call? I thought it was kind of artsy/neat

    Yea, it's a filter design. No matter what picture or how high res it is it will have the HTC dot design that makes up your picture. It's not granny or pixelated. It's actually in high res but gives off a pixelated affect.

    Hi,

    I have just tested this and it works, however, I think I prefer the pixelated look, any idea on how to go back to it ?

    I have tried removing the photo from the contact directly and readding it directly from both the contact and the photo and neither seem to revert it.


    Any ideas ?

    All my pictures from my EVO LTE were like that on the One and I didn't like it. I don't sync Facebook contacts but I do go to my people list and the ones that are on Facebook I just pick a picture that I like crop it and save as contact icon. I had to redo all mine but now there normal. I didn't like the pixelated look.

    All my pictures are already set to "phone" and they are all infested with HTC's "special filter". Some are from facebook and some were transferred from my old DroidX. Why would anyone want their contact pictures to look that way? Also, why would anyone want their contact photo to be cut in half when they get a call. Pure dumb, dumber, and dumbest.

    Has anyone come up with any other solutions?

    On my PC, I logged into gmail, contacts, and re-added the photos to my contacts that were coming up pixelated like that, and the next time I opened those contacts on my phone, they were fine. My impression was that some if the old photos were really small,or low resolution, and that's why it was happening.
