    I have a lot of my facebook contacts synced with my phonebook. This cleverly pulls over profile pictures, however when I place a call and the image is blown up it looks crap because it's so low res.

    Any way round this? I could of course manually attach HQ images but then that wouldn't update when they change profile pictures as happens now.

    This is a fairly common complaint when using Google Contacts. Even via the web interface, all heck is compressed out of the contact images and they look terrible as a result.

    As far as I'm aware, there's no fix.

    Syncmypix has a high res option, couldn't tell you if it fixes this though.

    Some of mine don't look so bad so maybe it does...

    I used that before on Desire, it did work, just complicated, forgot about that....cheers!

    Google should sort this out though, what's the point if it doesn't function well?

    It certainly is poor, and no reason for it.
