You said that you tried the same wallpaper and it looked terrible. what kind of terrible, what is it? there's no secret I play with color saturation, contrast and blur/despeckle of original wallpaper before I put it on my phone. And I save it as .png file, and so it is handled by phone more softer. It's harder to get good look with wallpapers containing gradient areas because of display quality, I mean 65K display colors.
