    So I recently switched from using google photos to back up my photos to iCloud photo storage that way it is always on demand and ready to view or edit on my phone. I recently downloaded all my photos from google and the file size when unzipped is 1.62 gb. However when they are on my phone and uploaded to iCloud they are reporting double or more. I do not have any files in my recently deleted and I have not selected the unlimited storage in google photos and using full quality. I don't get it. Is anyone else having this problem?

    Here are the images showing the file sizes.

    When you initially unzipped the Google pics, did you unzip them to your computer and then upload them directly to the iCloud website or did you put the pics on your iPhone first?

    So all you did was put the photos from Google back on your phone?

    Correct. Downloaded all of my photos from the google photos app directly to my camera roll and then backed up over night to iCloud photo storage.

    What does the storage show for Photos and Camera in settlngs > General > Usage > Manage storage?
    Is that "double" number for iCloud or phone storage?
