I like getting pictures to my phone with out pulling the SD card. But I wish the thumb nails were clearer. Even set at 5mp or 8 mp with a HD picture which is a high resolution picture. They still aren't the best in the thumb nails. This is my second 4 g camera and thumb nails look like the first camera. What other wireless camera are out their that works with Verizon. First picture is 5mp 2.3 mp1080x2160 1.2mb the second picture is with the HD high resolution which still isn't super clear.

You do realize that the thumbnails are either 640 * 480 (regular thumbnails) or 1280 * 960 (large thumbnails), regardless of the MP settings for the actual photos, don’t you?

What size thumbnails are you using? From your info strip, it looks like you are getting regular thumbnails, which are going to be grainy if you enlarge them. Bump that up to large. You may find that the thumbnail is plenty good enough in most cases.

This is a large thumbnail (1280 * 960) from the same model camera you are running. Unfortunately, the camera is facing west and most of the activity is late evening through early morning so I had trouble finding anything that was even vaguely comparable to your photo as far as lighting goes, and with a subject somewhat close to the camera.

The first image you posted was a small thumbnail. The second you posted is a screen shot of a very zoomed-in HD photo at whatever the MP setting for the camera is.

I can tell by looking at the info strip the size of the thumbnail. Look at the difference in the information spacing on your first photo and on my photo.

I know they are screen shots. You cannot tell much of anything about picture quality from a screen shot. I can tell that the first picture/screen shot/whatever-you-want-to-call-it is of a regular )not large thumbnail and the second one is from the HD photo (whatever resolution it is) zoomed WAY in.

I am not understanding what the problem is. You are posting a bunch of screen shots, but screen shots of any Spartan pics (thumbnails or HD) are not going to be any different from screen shots of other brands of cameras of pictures of the same resolution.

What is it that you want to be different?

These are screen shots of the same large thumbnail taken on my Galaxy Note 9 phone. I'm still not sure what your point is or what you are trying to accomplish so I'm having to play the game without knowing the rules.

The size (resolution) is your phone’s screen size/resolution, not the resolution of the thumbnail or the HD photo (the actual pictures that the camera sent).

Every screen shot you take is going to be that size. It doesn’t matter what is displayed on the screen.

For screen size comparison, my iPad Pro 11 screen resolution is 2388*1668, so the large thumbnail is “blown up” to nearly 200%.

My Galaxy Note 9 screen is 1440 * 2960.
