    strange issue with screen

    i have this problem that no matter what wallpapers i use on my S2, if they arent the S2's stock wallpapers they look like crap, really pixelly and blocky.

    for an example, i used the wallpapers from the droid razr that i posted a request for earlier and they look beautiful on my laptops screen but as soon as i move them over to the phone (with kies) they look like crap.....

    its almost like the photos are being compressed.... ive even sent over a few 1080p papers and had the same problem.....

    ideas?

    When a wallpaper looks pixelly and blocky it's usually down to the wrong resolution. Ideally the wallpaper for the Galaxy S1 & 2 should be 960x800 for best resolution.

    I find that if the wallpaper is not the same resolution then it will look like it's poor quality.

    Also do not use Kies to transfer any media at all, this is a strict rule which I encourage others to use. Kies can convert data in music and pics without you realising. It's also an extra lengthy process, just connect direct to your PC using USB Storage mode.

    Welcome to the Kies Hate Club
