Why are my pictures still being stored on my iPhone 5, even though I have Google Photos?
I have an iPhone 5 and I've been trying to save up some space on it, so I got the Google Photos app. I backed everything up to the Google Drive cloud and deleted all my pictures from my photo gallery.. However, when I go into storage Google Photos takes up 3 whopping gigs of memory. I uninstalled the Google Photos app and installed it again and as my pictures started syncing the memory of Google Photos went from 116 MB to 3 Gb again. Is this happening to anyone else? Am I missing something? I have literally checked and unchecked everything about a million times and I'm still having the same problem. If someone could please shed some light on this, I'd really appreciate it.
