GDR2 update for Windows Phone 8 fixes low-res profile picture on Me tile
The good news for Windows Phone 8 users is that the GDR2 update fixes the problem and returns your smiling face to the hi-res goodness that it deserves. Some models have the update installed out of the box, like the Nokia Lumia 1020 and the Nokia Lumia 925. Non-carrier branded Windows Phone 8 models have started to receive the update while those units purchased from a mobile operator should start getting it next month. For those with Nokia Lumia models, the update will be combined with the manufacturer's own Amber update.
Feel better now?

I don't think that Microsoft takes too long updating their OS (or maybe they do). I think the problem with them is that they take too long to add simple, yet necessary features to Windows Phone. A few updates a year is not that bad, after all, other OS's only have one update a year. But that's just me.

It is a live tile problem, not a camera problem. Camera's taking its normal shots at normal resolutions, but the "Me" live tile is displaying the image at a lower quality than it should. That's the problem from what I understand.
Unless you are saying that the "Me" live tile is going back to the original image and downsizing its resolution somehow, if that is the case.

This'll be the second big update since wp8, and a third scheduled before its bday. 3 major updates a year ain't bad. I wouldn't call that too slow. I think it just seems that way because the updates are talked about way in advance.
