    Apple needs to fix this.


    Using my last iPhone and I want my experience to be as good as possible before I switch to android.

    Why? I thought apple was about ease of use. If I wanted to hack around, waste time, and do that I would use windows phone

    Well you are free to change.
    Actually I wouldn't call resizing a picture "hacking".

    I don't resize it until I go into 'use as wallpaper'. Simple.

    iOS has a bug that it shouldn't have. End of story. Apple needs to fix it.

    I'm not sure what the problem is here. iOS is working as it always has since iOS 1.0 in this matter. Not a bug, but by design. If you really want to go against Apple's design, take a screenshot of the zoomed in image and use that as a wallpaper. Or select use as wallpaper, then resize the image.

    Funny. Unlike iOS, Windows Phone crops the image to fill the screen so that there's one less action for the user to perform.

    Exactly! Why assume that the user wants to use a cropped-while-viewing portion of the image as a background? Whenever I zoom in to to point out something interesting in a picture on my phone, it's generally not what I want as my wallpaper.
