Android users are about to lose one picture-perfect advantage over iPhone owners
GOOGLE is making some drastic changes to the way it backs-up photos on the default photo management app on the vast majority of Android smartphones, Google Photos. And for iPhone owners, the change will seem eerily familiar.
There are a number of differences between Android and iPhone, but one that Google has been keen to point out in a series of advertisements over the years is the free unlimited storage available in Google Photos, compared to the 5GB free cloud storage on offer from Apple for all iPhone owners. In a series of adverts, Google mocked the “low storage” warning box that can appear when trying to take a photo – touting that Android users would be able to automatically back-up their images to its servers in a high-quality format without paying a penny.
