Hi,

Has anyone noticed 16:9 photos in Google Photos are squashed?

Photos>All - Squashed
Photos>Highlights - Not Squashed
Camera - Squashed

How bizarre.

Bug? Any fix for this?

I would love to use google photos instead of album but as my photos are 16:9, this is a small problem.

Anyone else have this issue?

Thanks in advanced: )

If you are on 4.2.2, the thumbnails of 16:9 is really buggy and looks like that. Use 4:3 instead and it will be fine

I had a feeling that would be the case.

Why Sony don't update this phone to 4.3, I do not know.

Install a custom 4.4 rom.
And there is definitely a chance that the Xperia L get's the 4.3 update

I will but only as a last resort, the normal 4.2.2 rom is pretty decent (once you disable Xperia FB).

It's June 24th and no mention of an update yet!

I thought Xperia Z already got 4.4?
