This is on the contact detail view the avatar looks pixelated. Do we have a proper high res image from design here? Also when I import contacts from google they have avatars that look good on the list page but also very pixelated on the detail. How can we solve this?

Hi bill about the default avatar a simple solution is use a HD image for it.
But about the google images, I am not sure if there is a solution for that, even android shows pixelated images if the contact avatar is low resolution.
