I believe the problem is that the Checkbox widget uses a regular TextView with the
drawableLeft attribute, because it expects text to be shown as well. (This is why you see it centered vertically, but offset slightly to the left.)
If you simply want an image button with multiple states, I suggest using a ToggleButton with your custom images in a state list selector. Or you could create a custom class that extends ImageView and implements Checkable.
