Hello to you all sir .I just got my Xperia Z1 (6903) yesterday. Everything work just as I wanted but something weird happen . Some of my contact that I sync with Xperia facebook app seem to work fine I mean they have half-full screen picture when I call them but about half of them don't.It have very good quality picture but the picture of them are in square middle of the outgoing call screen . Does anyone having the same issue as mine ?

Solution that I try

1. Link between facebook app and Xperia facebook
2. Unlink between facebook app and Xperia facebook
3. Uninstall Facebook app
4. Use Xposed Framework GravityBox fullscreen caller id mod ( nothing happen )


Sony Xperia Z1 (6903UB)
Rooted
RomAur v4.2 XZ1

P.S. Sorry for my bad english I'm from Thailand

Yes, anyone an idea please?

My Problem is not with facebook (don't use facebook) but with Google Contacts Sync

If i take a pic with the phone and asign it to a contact it's a big picture.
but all of my contacts i managed and synced with my google account are small, had an Xperia L and had also big sized contact pics while calling

???

okay let's assume your idea is right. Why are there some contacts with full resolution pictures synced from facebook?

I have removed xperia facebook plugins, so i am not sure, but i guess would be that the sony contact app, if the address book is sync' ed with google AND with facebook, gives priority to the facebook profile image or maybe to the one with the higher resolution?

all I know is what happened to me:

- I buy the phone and sync with google: all low-res pics
- I spend 1h assigning new high res pic on the phone: all goes well for months
- I install a new version of the ROM and since I root I reset all data, so I sync again with google: all pictures in low res, although all are the newer ones I assigned at the step above
- I assign ahigh res pictures to my wife from the phone: ok
- I go to google contacts on the web and assign from there a new picture: low res

I confirm the following, after a further test...

- I open on the phone a contact with low res pic and I assign a high res pic: the pic is sync'ed with google contact and on the phone remain in high res
- I open on google contact the same contact and i assign a high res pic form my pc: the pic is sync'ed with phone and becomes low res
