    Will stock gallery viewer offer quality in pair with HD Photo Viewer after one of the upcoming updates? It's a shame that we have to use third-party apps to see photos in the way they were ment to view.

    I'm not sure what you are asking.

    HD Photo Viewer is a 3rd-party app. HD Photo Viewer, a sharper view of your Windows Phone 8 photos? | Windows Phone Central

    From what i gather, the topic starter is asking if the stock (built-in) gallery image viewer will get some kind of update to support displaying pictures at their full quality and resolution (just like what the third party app (HD Picture Viewer) does you linked to) rather than being displayed in a downgraded, grainy, low quality mess they currently are, Because of apparent high memory usage. But, Most if not all mobile phone operating systems (iOS, Android etc) can display photo's (taken by the devices camera) on their devices at full quality and full resolution with seemingly no problems at all. I mean even Symbian (bless it's little cotton socks) devices with their low 128MB (N8 + E6 256MB and 808 PV 512MB) RAM can do it, So why can't Windows Phone devices without the need for the said 'third party app' ?.

    Q&A: How Nokia and Microsoft collaborated to create the groundbreaking new Lumia 1020 with Windows Phone 8
    If you look at Question 2, Joe Belfiore's answer make it seem like they updated the photo app for zooming and viewing the full resolution photos for the 1020. This seems like an OS update not so much a Nokia exclusive app. So I'm assuming the update should bring that along as well since it is at the OS level.

    Hopefully, fingers crossed.
