I have a Galaxy a71 and when I use messages to send pictures or videos it compresses them before sending them which results in horrible quality.
The local Sprint store didn't know what the problem was so I've had to switch to a different messaging app but I would like to get this problem resolved. I do not have this issue with Facebook Messenger, Snapchat just the messaging app that come on my phone
Facebook Messenger and Snapchat use data to transfer the media, whereas regular messaging services use MMS. MMS is limited in the amount of data it allows so the image is compressed.
The Moto e5 play that I was using before I switched to the a71 didn't do that and I'm on the same carrier, just upgraded the phone so that should have nothing to do with it
I'm using Google messages now because my default messages app was compressing images and videos. I'm on the same carrier and I even upgraded to 5G so I don't know why it was doing that but I found a way around it with Google's app
