Contact image/avatar too large on call screen

Usually contact images are in square format. On the call screen, they are used as fullscreen background, which means they are scaled to fit the height of the display, which most often results in a fullscreen face with the left and right side of the head cropped. IMHO it is not very aesthetic to cut away parts of faces of friends.

What about scaling the image to fit display width, applying a gradient to transparency at the top and bottom of the image, and positioning it somewhere on the call screen where no buttons etc are. This way, UI elements on the screen would also have the same good contrast always, no matter which contact image is displayed.
