Why is the transcribe picture so low resolution?

0 like 0 dislike
I took some pictures and I'm now ready to transcribe them at home. However, the photo in the transcribe window (in the android app) is low resolution and I can't read the dates on the headstone. However, if I back out of that screen and view the same image without trying to transcribe it, it is higher resolution and I can read it clearly. Is there a way to fix this?

BG does not recommend use of smartphones and tablets for transcription. Do you have the same problem if you try to transcribe on a regular computer or laptop? I use a laptop for transcribing and do not have this problem.
