    Morning,

    On my L920 the images in IE10 are blurry, esp when you zoom in, is this a common fault that needs an update?

    Compared it to the iphone browser and the images on the iphone are crystal clear.

    thanks

    Hmmmm, I am happy with the photo quality of IE10 ... but I can not compare to iPhone 5 ...

    Maybe Microsoft is just clever ... what do you do with the highest quality pic in a phone (in 4 to 5 inch display) ? .. as it will slow down your real browsing speed to download the such big pics in the full size when is just browsing ... :)

    When you zoom in everything gets blurry until zooming stops, then all gets back to sharp.
    With what site do you have this issue? Maybe it's because your operator uses Data Sense technology by default. It's system wide solution similiar to Nokia Xpress.

    Let me guess, you are on Verizon network in US ?

    Your APN settings might need changing, nearly all networks compress images and the APN settings determin by how much. you will probably find you are running generic settings made for low res screens. They will have changed the iphone APN settings to not compress as much because they think it has a high dpi screen. Probably just a matter of changing the username and password.

    added the following APN settings, still the same blurry images:

    Connecting your Windows Phone to EE

    Starting from the homescreen of your handset:
    Tap the arrow right in the top corner of the handset to access the main menu and press Settings. Select mobile network and then add apn.
    Adding the settings to the handset

    The first stage of the setup is to enable your internet connection, fill in the settings below to get setup.

    Name – EE Internet
    APN – everywhere
    Proxy & Proxy Port - should be left blank
    Username – eesecure
    Password - secure
    Tap save (small button with a Disk icon next to the X)
    Press the confirm icon.
    Press the Home key to return to standby mode.
    That’s it, you're set up and activated. Give the browser a test to see if everything’s up and running, you should be able to load a web page if things have been set up correctly.

    Here's how to manually set up a data connection on your Nokia Lumia 920:

    From the Start screen, swipe to the left.
    Scroll down to and tap Settings.
    Scroll down to and tap mobile network.
    Tap the add internet apn field.
    Tap the APN field.
    Enter everywhere and tap the Username field.
    Enter eesecure and tap the Back button.
    Tap the Password field.
    Enter pass and tap the save icon.

    That's it - the data connection has been manually configured for your Nokia Lumia 920.

    The pictures are sharp on my 920. The issue you are describing might be connected with pixel density and comparison to i.e. LCD desktop monitor (that has much less dense display).
    What "seems to be" sharp on monitor is not necessarily sharp. Then your 920 has to use on-the-fly postprocessing of images to be able to display them at zoom level desired by you.
    This results in diffrent feeling comparing to other screens (with diffrent pixel density / size).

    So pictures on webpages will look every time diffrent on 920 and any other phone with diffrent specs. And I think that is it. Nothing else :)

    you got to be kidding me?

    why is it everytime theres an issue with the L920, i get told it's just like that. Let me make it clear, looking at the browsers of non windows phone the images on the internet pages are sharp even when you zoom.

    I was just checking that page ... double click that guy's pic too, to make it a full size pic ... looks good for me ...

    Well, if YOU have iPhone 5 too - CAN YOU SEND THE SCREENSHOTS OF THE BOTH ONES, Lumia 920 and iPhone 5, so we can compare ...

    Enclosed my Lumia 920 screenshots from that page ....

    So you decided to send S3 screenshot instead of iPhone 5 screenshot - did it fail ? ... and that's not the same page either :) ... so if YOU have Lumia 920, iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3 phones, so can you make the screenshots from the same page by all these phones, so we can really compare them here ... :)

    You get the idea. I compared it to a mates iphone 5 at work and I'm not at work now.

    The last picture i posted is blurry on my L920.

    Must be a setting or something.. Anyone else experience this?

    Yeah I've noticed this.. I was actually just comparing a couple sites yesterday with my HTC One X and it was clear that IE didn't render the pic/text properly in some areas, while the One X was ultra sharp

    IE 10 is awful. Worst mobile browser I've ever used. I've used safari on my old iphone 4 and chrome on my nexus 7 tablet. Both of those blew ie 10 out of the water.

    I didnt notice this until this was brought up. hmm. doesnt affect me too much.

    The blurry thing doesn't bother me. It's the websites that don't work, the weird coding on others, nothing ever works 100% with IE 10. Safari and Chrome don't have flash but other than that they have very few issues in comparison to IE 10
