Landscape photo aspect ratio and file sizes

    Why is the aspect ratio for landscape photos so much narrower than my previous Android phones? They seem almost 4x3 rather than 16x9 (using TV terms). In actuality, the Nexus is 2592x1944 where my Thunderbolt was 2048x1225, so a lower pixel density for the TB, but a wider aspect ratio. The reason this is important is that we view the pictures on our TV from Picasa and my TB pictures fill the screen but the Nexus pictures have black bars on the sides.

    Also, why are the TB pictures so much bigger in file size? The Nexus files are around 275kb or so and the TB pictures are twice that size.

    I do not know what settings for pictures you use, but mine are around 2 MB, it depends, for example more colors in the picture, larger the file, higher ISO, bigger file etc... Pictures from instant upload are smaller. If you send picture thru messaging, it will also be smaller.

    Ah, you are right, I was looking at the ones uploaded to Picasa. the ones straight from my phone are just a bit over 2 MB as well, thanks for pointing me to that.

    But I still can't figure out why the aspect ratio is not as wide.

    It depends on cameras sensor Samsung used.
