One of the most discussed issues on an Android phone is Storage. Every person wants to click high-quality photos and record HD videos, but Storage comes in between. There was a time when people uploaded their photos and videos to google photos(actually, Google did it automatically); however, after a new announcement, it is evident that Google will now count HD quality photos and videos to the free 15 GB plan.
Nowadays, Android phones record 4K videos by default. If not 4K, then 1080p is a must, and Google Photos, by default, upload those videos in the original quality (4K) default so that you can change the uploading quality and set it to the lower end so it may not be counted in the free Storage. After a lot of to and fro by the users, after they came to know this announcement, we have written this blog on how to solve this simple concern.
