    not sure if its user error or what but I just got the 5 and imported everything over, including all my old iphone pics. in the camera roll the pic looks fine but once i click on a pic i dont see all of it. the right and left edges are left out. like it is zoomed or something.

    help please. not sure what happened.

    This has bothered me too. It appears to be some display issue. Even when you take a photo it appears full screen, but when you go to the view the picture the aspect ratio is scaled to 4:3 instead of full screen 16:9. Not sure why. :confused:

    It's not a flaw. Digital photos have 4:3 aspect.

    so what is everyone doing? resizing everything so it fits on screen. i guess i am confused cause some of the worst things are the wallpapers that worked fine on iphone 4 and now need to resize. even though the phones are same width. i guess it makes sense, i just didnt expect it and it threw me off.
