    Bought a WP8 Phone just yesterday for my mom - she loves it :)
    However, she is syncing contacts to her gmail account. The problem is that Gmail stores a low resolution contact picture which carries over to an ugly pixelated contact picture on the WP8.
    When I try to update the picture within the phone, the newly updated picture persists for a few minutes and then Google overrides it with the pixelated image.
    Anything that can be done about this?
    Thanks (the WP8 phone I bought here was a Samsung Odyssey btw :))

    I found this:
    Tip: Get high res photos for contacts on your WP7 device | Windows Phone Central
    But I can't find option 3 in Google.

    Usually, WP tends to choose from everything but the Outlook picture you've added if there is a picture from i.e facebook, twitter, linkedin, or google.

    So try

    Selecting the contact, edit, tap on the picture and it'll ask you to choose, choose Outlook. That will override all other pictures even if the other services updated their profile pictures

    To make sure I understand correctly - the outlook picture rules over all the other pictures? The way you described it at first seems to contradict this.
