Hi there and welcome to /r/android.
I'll attempt to clear some of your confusions and questions as well. Let's see now:
You could check vibration settings in settings -> sound & notification and also the individual apps setting.
Swipe is mostly from the edge of the screen for the hamburger menu, some apps like Reddit Sync allow you to swipe to go back to the subreddit you were viewing before tapping on the post.
Reddit Sync is pretty customizable and if you feel there's something missing you could bring it up at /r/redditsync, the dev is very active and there's a big update incoming real soon.
That lag is probably something from Sony's skin, so I'm not sure exactly what you could do about that.
Yes there are viruses and malwares but you'll be fine as long as you know where you are getting your apps from. You'll be fine as long as they are from trusted sources like Play Store, apkmirror.com etc. Just be careful and smart and there's nothing to worry about.
Yes, Google Photos is by far one of the best apps from Google.
Hope that helps.
Google Photos to be specific. It'll allow you to upload at high or original quality. Original quality will count against your free Google Drive storage space.
Google Photos comes with syncing, photo search, unlimited photo storage and an in-built editor but you don't have to use these features if you just need a gallery (sign out of Google Photos to get a 'classic' gallery app).
LeafPic is also shaping up to being a really good, free open-source image viewer. It's currently under development and only available on F-Droid.
Wait, even the detailed permissions link on the play store page will no longer display the internet permission? Ever since the Play Store started simplifying the permissions in the install popup, I've always checked the detailed permissions list before installing anything. For example the page Photos ([link]) still shows "receive data from the internet" under Permissions->View Details. Will the internet permission cease to be disclosed even in that list in the future?
Just install Google photos, it'll store all your photos/vids and has a option to delete the copies on your phone.
It's super easy to use, install and it'll take you through how to use it.
Edit: a link
That's the photo editor (5th screenshot shows this interface), not the camera app...
Either being disingenuous, or wildly unaware of which app you're running in.
Priv runs on android. Are you using google photos? [link]
There are tonnes of different gallery apps you can try to organise your pictures.
Google Photos app is one of the best, and paired with Snapseed owned by Google too, for editing, your pretty well covered. Photos app has unlimited storage too, free, but original resolution pictures are not unlimited. The compression does not really affect saved pictures.
PS, when asking questions, it's best to give more info, like who made the phone and what model, os, which you gave.
I see where your confusion is coming from. The Photos app is actually a separate app from your Camera app. If the Photos app is installed, you can find it in your app drawer under "P" and the name is just "Photos". You can see it here.
If it's not installed. here's a link.
Open that app, and like you said, go to settings, Back up and sync, and select the backup settings you desire, Good luck!
Make sure your phone and contacts are backed up to your google account. Use [link] To backup your photos/videos.
Then reset your phone and tell it to restore from the backup. Then download that app again. All your photos will be in the app and everything else should restore from the backup.
I know this isn't directly related to Samsung but you may as well use Google Photos. It is by far the best cloud picture/videos hosting service. You can search by faces, places, things etc. Google is way further ahead in the cloud pictures department compared to anyone.
Please, do yourself a favor and install Google Photos. It will automatically backup every photo and video you take, and provides unlimited free storage. That way, even if you do another factory reset, you will always have your photos backed up.
Other apps do this as well, but Google Photos is probably the best photo application ever created.
Google Photos or Gallery Go are good alternatives, the latter being a 'lite' version of the former and is under 10MB in size.
Instead you should download the app called "google photos"
I believe it has unlimited storage!
Link to Google Photos in Google Play: [link]
contacts: make sure they are all uploaded to her google account. when she gets her iphone, use that same account and they will download onto the phone
pictures: check out google photos for android and google photos for ios
texts: i don't think those can be transferred
notes: what app does she use for them?
If you're rooted (you are) remove the app completely and try to re-install via an APK or straight from the Play Store.

Get Google photos and then create a shared library. You can make it where everyone can add photos to the library and it's perfect for sharing pictures with family or friends.
This is actually called reverse domain notation which is used in Android package names. The URL for Google Photos in Google play is [link]

Install Google Photos and allow it to make a backup of your photo library to the cloud:
Then make a backup of your device using Samsung' Smart Switch:
Yeah, OEM Gallery apps are notorious for being quite buggy.
I'd recommend downloading and backing up all your images using Google Photos.
I find it much more reliable and easier to navigate.
can we factory reset the tablet and not restore it? I would like to see if after it is factory restored and not logged into your google account if the problem is gone. That will narrow things down a bit.
If you don't already you can backup any photos on the tablet with google photos:
Here's the link to Google photos in case that's it.
If it's the Moto app, then you can probably only disable it, not uninstall totally. Check here or go to settings, apps then disabled and see if it appears there.
Install Google Photos from the Play Store. It allows free unlimited backup of "high quality images" (works fine for me) or 15GB of original quality. Once all your photos are up in the cloud go into the settings of Google Photos and there is a button that says "Free up device storage- Remove original photos & videos from your device that are already backed up". This could potentially help a lot depending on how many photos you have and it's also nice that they are backed up in the cloud for easy access from other devices and in case your phone gets lost/stolen or damaged.
There are some utilities like CCleaner or Clean Master which aim to remove unnecessary files you could potentially try to. I personally don't use any of these optimization apps.
Everything else is specifically tailored to your scenario and nobody can tell you what to delete or remove. Delete old apps you don't use any more. Move local files like photos, music, documents, etc... to your computer, run the system update and then move the files back over. If your phone has an SD card get a bigger one and you could also move stuff to there.
And if you're using a low end phone with something like 8GB or 16GB of internal memory consider purchasing one with more internal storage space the next time you buy a phone if you have this problem frequently.
For some one who has killed many phones Google photos has saved my butt by having all my photos backed up over the cloud (I set mine to only back up over Wi-Fi to save data)
You can download the Google Photos app and set it up to automatically transfer all of your photos to the cloud without taking up any space in your Google Drive account. It'll go through your phone automatically and sync everything at a slightly reduced quality, but nothing really noticeable unless you're doing photo editing.
Dropbox and Onedrive have a similar feature, but I prefer the Google one personally.
EDIT: Link! [link]
Clarification: Even thought the screenshots in the play store do not reflect it (at least for me right now), the version being pushed to users contains a redesign using the new lower nav ideals.
>is 200mb not completely adequate for storing photos?
Depends on how many photos we're talking about; based on using a 16MP sensor (what your S6 Edge has), 200 MB will only hold 41 photos. You can reduce your photo quality to store more. I recommend backing up your photos to Google Photos and using the app as your main gallery to view them, as you'll have unlimited photo storage, can view the images anywhere, and once they're backed up, you can delete them from your phone.
Try using android.intent.action.VIEW and set the data to "file://path-yo-your-file".
If you want to set a specific app to open the image file, use the package name attribute of the action - for instance, if you want to use Google Photos, set the package name to com.google.android.apps.photos
> On my phone, however, the unlimited is called 'standard size - unlimited free storage at 2048 px
that seems to be from the old version... are you using the latest version? mine redirects to Google Settings for the backup settings, and unlimited says "High Quality: Great visual quality at reduced file size (free unlimited storage)"
Try looking at your pictures with the Google Photos app (you don't have to enable backup). It should sort them by date automatically.
I was able to use this app to combine a side by side it's on my post history as to what it looked like it's only for Android I hope this helps! Can't wait to see 😁!
SD cards are (almost?) always slower than phone storage.
So your options:
How to crop :
Almost all of my photos become duplicated after taking them. This does not occur to all photos however. And there does not seem to be a linkage between regular, portrait mode, or downloaded photos from other libraries.
I'm guessing you know about the Google Photos app. If not, you've found your solution!
If you do know about it, then it would be useful to say more about what you are looking for than "acts like Google photos," since this app obviously does that.
As in you can't transfer them over? Mate, install the Google photos app on your s8 and it will back them up to unlimited storage over WiFi. Install the app on your s10e and you can view /download those pictures on the phone. Done!
I use the photos app to back up all my pics and then delete them from my phone. This way I always have about 8gb free on my phone. Once uploaded you can add them to albums and share them with friends via a link.
I'm using the Google Photos app to view photos.
Which app do you use?
About videos and photos, use Google Photos and set it to backup them and auto-delete old ones.
To get app sizes and delete what you don't need, you can use this app, show all apps (including system apps), and then sort by size.
I think motorola still uses the default "Gallery", or "Photos" if they've moved to the more modern version.
Either way, go to gallery/photos, and open the image. There should be four icons on the bottom, one of them is three lines, with little sliders on them.
Tap that, then you will see four new icons, one of which is the crop icon, similar to this
After tapping that you can drag the edges to adjust your crop.
If you do have some other photos app, I suggest downloading the official google photos app not only because it's actually very good, but because then you have something you can make a consistent experience across android devices.
(Versus if Motorola made their own, and you get used to it, then you get a Pixel or HTC phone down the line, you'll have to use a different photo app since you were using the motorola exclusive one)
Why do you install Google plus to get Google photos ?
Google photos has its own app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.photos
You can crop images in Google Photos and Snapseed.
In that case, not sure :/ I'm not a fan of MTP on any computer, I've even had issues on Windows. Like the original commenter, AirDroid is my go-to.
You originally mentioned backing up photos/videos of your daughter; have you seen Google Photos? You can backup your stuff for free and access it via the app or at photos.google.com
Doesn't Google Photos do that?
I'm using it and it can tag people in my photos, plus you can select how you want to sort your photos.
Next time for the sake of not running into this problem again is to use Google Photos. It's a photo cloud storage app with unlimited data storage.
Google Photos link
I haven't noticed a drop in quality of photos that I upload to their service.
Idk about mass export.
That's the app.
You can go to photos.google.com and check it out.
Why not use Google Photos?
The free unlimited standard storage option is usually good enough for what mobile phones can do for pictures. Then it's synced with your Google account and can log into it at photos.google.com.
There should be all sorts of options like auto sync (I can't remember off the top of my head if it's by default set to wifi only for auto or not - you may want to change that but beware it can EAT your data if you have a limited allotment).
Edit: Google Play Store Link
The best feature I like with Cloud Services (especially the Google Photos App) is that it keeps backing up my photos even without an action and is accessible for me from any device.
WOuld something like Boxcryptor or Cryptomator be useful (I'ven't researched these) in uploading stuff from mobile devices?
> And my photos? Well, I take a picture and it automatically shows up on every device I own. I add it to a shared album and everyone I'm sharing it with automatically gets it.
Google should develop an app that does that. They could call it Google Photos or something like that.
You can also use Google's gallery app which is better in every way, and backs up all of your photos and videos for free!
I would suggest downloading (can't remember if it comes on the device) the Google Photos app. It will list your screenshots in with the photos you take, as well as back them up if you so choose. There's also a Screenshots folder created if you want to pull them off manually by connecting to a computer.
The Google Photos app has a bullet point

Google Photos? It's no longer attached to Google+.
Allows you to view your photos on all devices(Once synced and That have the app) or on PC (photos.google.com).
Google Photos(No longer part of G+ app) can automatically backup your photos and Videos to cloud (Not tried Audio), I'm not sure if that's what you mean though.
As has been said, the new Google Photos will do this for you. If you set the quality to "Good" as opposed to "Perfect" (which I think only matters with photos larger than 10mb anyway, also those aren't the actual terms used) you get unlimited storage that doesn't count against your Google Drive storage and some really awesome search and organization features.
If, on the other hand, you want to do it with Tasker and store them directly in your Drive in a folder, Folder Sync should do the trick. It will sync your cloud storage services directly to your phone and can be set to run only over wifi, while charging, etc. It can probably handle it alone but also has Tasker integration for more fine tuned control.
> it has a frame around it
sounds like the old Photos (tied to G+).
if you ever need the google play link to the photos app, check this
It's on the Play Store. Available for Jelly Bean to M.
After installing this, you should probably disable/delete Google Plus if you don't use it often, because Google+ needs an update to remove the Photos app linked to it. Otherwise you'll have 2 icons opening the same app.
Just going to say that Google gives you unlimited storage for photos if you reduce the quality to "high." That means compression to 16 MP and 1080p for photos and videos, respectively, that are higher quality/resolution. If you use Google Drive already, this may be a better thing to use.
Edit: Here's the link to the Photos website. If you go to the settings from the top left, you can set it to high instead of uncompressed images. If you're using a phone (Android, iOS), you can get the photos to back up automatically to Photos, which can also be accessed from Google Drive on the left panel. I mention this instead of Flickr because some people may want to have all their pictures in one place. If you want to see how much storage you have and upgrade options, check here. Do keep in mind though that anything in your Google Drive trash bin counts towards the total quota.
The new Photos app will be available here once Google releases it to the Store.
Edit- AVAILABLE NOW
> Google Play app listing images are not supposed to include a 'fake' device in them.
Someone should really tell Google.
Hell, many of those are using the Nexus 5 still.
One of the best is Google Photos
You could upload the photos to Google Photos (Andriod) (iOS) or Dropbox (Android) (iOS) and them download/import them on the iPhone.
This app can be downloaded on pretty much any phone or can be accessed online. Everyone gets free unlimited video and photo storage with some slight downgrading but not something you'd notice. The app can automatically erase photos and videos from your phone after they have been backed up, but it will still show them on your device. There are a ton of other features in Google Photos that I 100% recommend checking out. As far as image stabilization goes it sounds like this is just being rolled out to Android first, I am sure web and iOS will follow shortly.
It's available already: [link]
I have it working. Currently uploading a bunch of pics lol.
It's rolled out: [link]
Once it starts uploading, you can also access it from the web: [link]
-First thing, install Google Photo's.
-Use Google Now, it's awesome yet helpful.
-I like using the Google Now Launcher. (Video). It's a home screen replacement that gives a tighter integration to the Google Now Experience.
-I use Sync for Reddit as my Reddit app of choice. The pro version is definitely worth it.
-You can earn money to use in the Play Store by using Google Opinion Rewards.
-Snapseed is a pretty powerful photo editing app.
-I like using Solid Explorer to browse files.
I believe this will be the link but it's not live yet: [link]
Tell your mom to install Google Photos. This way she can backup online and make space on her device.
I use Google Photos as a gallery (it works whether you activate sync or not) and for local audio, I use Retro Music, which is based on Phonograph (both have been great in my experience)
The play store said it was already installed on my phone but I re-installed and it's definitely the new app.
Google Photos does this and more.
Welcome to Android :)
Google Photos is your friend. Upload in any one of the 2 qualities you want. Check here. High quality won't take any Google drive storage. Original will. You've got 15GB of Google drive storage. When backed up, then from the hamburger menu in Google Photos app choose free up space. Do not manually delete, you might delete something that's not backed up.
Backup videos too, if they're not movies etc.
Install Files Go. Delete any thing you find unnecessary through there. It'll be easier.
Can't do much about apps. Docs and music are within limits.
I still don't get where rest of your space is going. Analyse using disk usage app..
Let me know how much space you cleared up after this. Although 32GB is the limit for flagships. Not to mention the heavy OS.
After all this, not now, if you haven't factory reset your device in the past year, it's time now. Maybe invest in a microSD card too.
Also, is there stuff in your Verizon cloud that's not on your device now? What content is it?
I love using gestures on my home screen icons (swiping up opens another
app/folder), but feel like it would be nice if the functionality wasn't
completely hidden. A simple idea for that is to have indicator-like icons that
describe what the gesture would do.
In order, here's what the icons do:
QuickPic (modded) - I am yet to find a replacement, it's fast, easy to use and customisable. You can still access Cloud photos without being connected to the Cheetah servers. Reddit post related
Google Photos - Backup and sync is very useful to me.
Are you aware of or opposed to something like Google photos?
Use the Google Photos app. They will all appear on there as if they were on your phone.
Allow me to preface by saying that you can dive as deep as you want in the Android rabbit hole. Don't like the way your messaging app works? Find a new one that works for you. Want to give your phone a Bruce Jenner makeover? Install a new icon pack! Want to try out some new camera app that lets you do cool stuff? Install it. Use it. Want to really get into some cool stuff and get into some of the dirty details? Root your phone! That flexibility of choice is one thing that Android is known for, so don't be afraid to poke around and try something new just because it's different. On the same token, if everything works for you on your phone and if you're happy with it, then there's little reason to change.
Obligatory plug-in for Google's iPhone to Android page.
Must have apps: Google Photos kicks ass when it comes to photo backup/storage. Depending on your SMS needs, you have a number of options to choose from: Textra and Google's Messenger and probably the most standard SMS clients out there. If you need Whatsapp, FB Messenger, etc, it's all out there for you as well. Snapseed is a pretty great photo editor, Inbox could change the way you look at reminders and emails, Keep is wonderful for reminders and notes, Today Calendar and Google's Calendar are both good calendar apps. Nova Launcher allows you to customize pretty much everything on your home screen from icons used, to how many icons per row, to what your home button does, and a whole lot more.
Music: What platform of music are you coming from/which one did you use previously? Depending on your needs and how you like your music, there are a variety of options.
Anti-virus: not needed, just don't go clicking on the flashing banner saying that you've won something :)
Some Reddit clients: Reddit is fun, Swipe for reddit, Sync for reddit, BaconReader for reddit, Relay for reddit. Play around with them and see which one works best for you; they all have their own perks.
Switching can seem overwhelming, so feel free to ask questions! :) Welcome to the Android family.

In regards to the battery, it may take a few days for it to settle down and not drain as fast. When I got my most recent phone (the G4), after about 2 or 3 days I finally started to see the battery improvements, although this will most likely depend from phone to phone. One tip I do advocate for is to turn off location/GPS when you need your juice to last you a bit longer and when you don't need location-based services. Hope this helps!
I would suggest checking there first, and let me know the results.
[link] just keep refreshing?

Photos android app now live - [link]
I just got the update manually by going here and clicking install.
No google photos
the app is free.
you can pay for some shit but the base app is free.
I may be wrong, but I expect this to be quite a technical challenge. What you want is software that can scan all media content on your phone (video, images, possibly audio, in a range of formats), determine what items are porn, and then provide you with multiple options for handling them.
While media scanning and file handling should be available in any decent gallery app, content determination is very difficult. AI is still not at the level of humans in interpreting media content as shown by examples like this and this. Even algorithms by tech giants like Google may fail, such as when safe filters in search engines fail at blocking explicit content or block non-explicit content.
Still, there is software that at least attempt to do what you want. Some quick googling yields articles like this of apps that try to auto-sort photos (well, some of the apps in that article does). My personal guess is that Google Photos is the best of them.
Your best solution is probably just to use a normal gallery app like Simple Gallery and look for porn yourself. Even if you get an app like Google Photos you'd still need to manually look for anything it might have overlooked. Moreover, I doubt Google Photos can sort video.
They question is does the digitizer still work?
Can you install apps, open apps, access menus, settings?
If so, install the google photos app, tell it to sync/backup all pictures to the google photos service. Then you can access the google photos website from your PC and download all the pictures.
Photos and Drive recently un-merged.
Personally I wouldn't restore them all back to the phone, to save space.
Just install the Photos app on your phone and you will be able to access them all there.
Alternately you can access google photos from your PC browser at https://photos.google.com/ to browse, manage, edit, or download the photos as desired
Dude, you have to try this.
Oh, I use the Google Photos app to manage photos. [link]

Google sync will not backup your photos, music, any documents/custom ringtones/custom wallpapers etc. you downloaded, call logs or text messages. Some apps that can help with that:
I am not sure what the problem is, but you can try backing up all your photos on Google Photos.
The unlimited cloud storage comes from the Google photos app, which you can install right now on any device. Whether it be iPhone or Android. You have access to it on desktop photos.google.com .
This image is from the made by Google site..
This image is from a screenshot on my phone of the app.
Photos.google.com has a phenomenal compression ability, and is virtually lossless. I remember when it was announced a professional photographer uploaded all his photos and showed some comparisons between the original photo and the Google photos upload and he couldn't tell the difference.
Google Photos is really the best way to not lose photos on an Android phone.
As mentioned you could use the Google Photos service, but I will explain in a little more detail.
If you install the google photos app you can have store/sync unlimited photos. To get to them on your computer you can either:
Two other alternatives are:
Do you have Plex with a Plex Pass? If so, plex offers photo sync as an inclusion in their premium service. Plex is awesome!
You could use an app like Syncme Wireless which will sync your photo folders on your phones with a folder on your computer when you are on your home/computer network, as specified by you.
Edit: Spelling and grammar
>>Use Google photos, make sure to select high quality and not original quality so you can have unlimited backup!
