    It's currently still a little circle on beta 1. I look forward to having the whole screen image back.

    Uh–oh. Is it just me or did it not make it to 8.0?

    Bummer.

    High res pictures are full screen, small, low res pictures are small. At least that is what seems to be the case with my phone at the moment.

    Full Screen Caller Image

    It was the same thing at my iPhone 5s... Updated last night to iOS 8 and there was no full screen caller pic!
    However, now everything is fine. Confused.

    It does. This is not a hardware-specific feature. It depends on the size of the photo.

    On my 4S is working but not for all contacts.
    I think it depends on the size of the picture you choose.

    Funny thing is I did that, and no change.
    So a photo taken with the iPhone should be larger enough for a full picture? Right?
    Just like back in the day

    Sadly, it looks like contact syncing (i.e. facebook, twitter etc) only provides the small thumbnail public image from the APIs.

    This might be the reason so many people are seeing crappy images :)

    If I replace them with Full Screen good quality images, I get full screen caller ID.

    I'll assume that FB etc will change the default to full instead of thumb for this eventually.

    Okay that might be the reason, I am syncing contacts from my Google account. Will tinker and report back.
