    I have 11.5 GB space on my Dropbox and it seems very smooth and attractive an I use it to keep my photos which is almost of 3 GB. All my documents goes to BOX but today I copied all my photos to BOX as well just to have everything in one place but for some reason it seems a bit ugly with some details against each item.

    By the which one is most reliable and smooth in terms of user experience; Dropbox or BOX?

    I use OneDrive which comes with 1TB of storage from my Office365 subscription. I back up all my iPhone photos to OneDrive.

    I use MS One Drive--mostly for photos. I only have 5 gb free storage, but I doubt I will ever fill it.

    My man set me up with Dropbox eons ago, it filled up rather quickly, I never go in there. I use iCloud, it's much simpler for me.

    But with iCloud, you must keep the photos on your device. With the cloud apps like Box and Dropbox, you can upload, then delete from the camera roll. Saves storage space.

    Mostly store all of my photos on OneDrive. Originally did it because it was multi platform and I'd been known to bounce between iOS and Android.

    Ah, so simply upload all your photos to the likes of Box, Dropbox etc. and merely delete from the Camera Roll and the likes? Brilliant idea...!!

    True... Hence iPad Pro 9.7 cellular + wifi 256 GB

    Truthfully I am such a hopeless techtard that this works for me, lol.

    "Must keep the photos on your device" is a bit misleading. Partially true but there's more to it.

    You can use the "Optimize iPhone Storage" option and your phone will offload hi-res photos as needed. If you want to view one that's been offloaded, it will download when you select it. You can also do this on your Mac.

    Which cloud storage services do you use ?-img_1471514387.326670.jpg

    I use mostly Google Drive because I know it the best, use google apps at work, and have the most space available (200GB). I used DropBox a lot while I was in school 2012-2014 for group projects, I've been a Mac user since my first computer in the 90s, but this is my first year with an iphone, switched from android, and I pay for 50Gb icloud to back up my phone and photos, but dont use it for file sharing between my comps yet.

    That helps, but they still take up space. And it confuses many users. So by toggling that on, one can delete all their photos from the camera roll?

    I'm using Google Photos and Dropbox. All my photos get dropped into Google Photos for convenient NO limit storage. And when I need to move music files or things larger than photos, I use Dropbox, since I download that on all my devices I have the quick access. Love it.

    Personally I use OneDrive, GoogleDrive and Dropbox for a quick backup and retrieval! Still enjoying the free space offered by the Storage providers

    Box has been my favorite for a long time. I like it better than Dropbox overall. The Box Notes feature is great. I also use Dropbox. OneDrive, and Google Photos.

    But BOX do not support auto upload of photo so it confuses me at times which photos to select to upload them. Do you have any way around?

    I don't use automatic upload. It would upload too much junk. But it's there. Go to Box Settings > Tap Files and Folders> Tap automatic upload.
