No more stor­age woes; backup im­ages and videos on the cloud

In this era of In­sta­gram, there’s a photo op­por­tu­nity at ev­ery turn. But our smart­phones can sel­dom keep pace with our en­thu­si­asm to cap­ture ev­ery­thing that catches our fancy. At some point, we have had to delete pic­tures to free up space be­cause stor­age, al­though ex­pand­able, is lim­ited.

Google hit the nail on the head by of­fer­ing un­lim­ited stor­age for pho­tos and video back­ups in its Pixel 2 de­vices. This means users can cap­ture as many 4k videos as they wish and back them up on the cloud. One need not in­vest in a new phone just for un­lim­ited stor­age. There are apps that can eas­ily back up your gallery to the cloud. Google’s Pho­tos app is the most pop­u­lar, of­fer­ing un­lim­ited photo backup (re­stricted to 16 MP im­ages and 1,080p videos). Here are a few other bank­able apps:
