On Android, the quality of photos sent by MMS is often poor. Here's a tip for sending a good quality photo by MMS
Where does the problem comes from ?
The photo sent is of reduced quality because it is compressed by the SMS / MMS application of your smartphone to be lighter before being sent. Some applications can increase the maximum size of sending, which reduces the compression ratio and thus increase the quality of the photo. Unfortunately not all smartphones can adjust this parameter.
Change the send size on smartphones that do not offer the function to send a good quality photo by MMS
To overcome this problem, it is possible to use Snapchat, WhatsApp, & #8230; but there is also a loss of quality. Fortunately, there are several applications to send heavier and therefore less compressed photos such as: Messenger, Textra, & #8230; Personally, I use Textra (available only on Android), where you can choose between several file sizes to have a superior sending quality (100 KB, 200 KB, 300 KB, 600 KB, 1000 KB and 2000 KB). Textra works like the original SMS / MMS applications, but with a different interface. This application has the particularity of allowing to customize the colors, choose a different notification sound depending on the contacts, etc. & #8230;
The application of Google posts is also very good. Its interface is more similar to classic interfaces. The presentation is sober, simple, which is pleasant to see. It is also possible to access his conversations from a computer.
It should be noted that operators also limit the maximum size of shipments. It is therefore necessary to choose the appropriate size in the application. At Bouygues and SFR the limit is 600 Ko, the same at Orange. At Free Mobile, the limit also appears to be 600 KB. These values may vary depending on the offer. If you do not know what is the maximum size allowed by your operator, you can try to choose a fairly large size and send a photo. If it is too high, the sending will fail.
