In previous versions of Snapchat, you could control the video quality of Snaps. However, there has never been a feature released to control the quality of your Snapchat pictures. As of the latest version of Snapchat today, you can no longer control the video quality either.
The issues with photos looking better on iOS versus Android comes down to the compatibility of the Android OS and Snapchat needing to support many devices that use Android. For iOS, Snapchat only needs to support one device in this sense (since all Apple devices run the same versions of iOS). Most Android camera phones today have a far superior camera than the iPhone, but due to Snapchat not fully supporting the camera on these phones, the picture quality remains sub-par.
Basically, Snapchat needs to fully support the camera hardware in all phones in order for pictures and videos to be crisp, clear, and top-notch just as the phones themselves would take them.
