Feeling bad for trusting Google Photos  

Eventually Google had announced that storage for photos will be counted against the defined limit and users need to pay if their photos exceed the limit. So, I had started to look out for alternative online storage choice available for storing photos and most important criteria I have set while choosing online storage option was the affordability. Google photos cloud storage pricing was little bit higher than the competitors like Microsoft’s OneDrive and moving out from Google photos was added pain in the ass. Even though, Google has enabled seamless moving to other competitor online cloud storage option easier, the ease of backup and familiarity in using Google photos for such long-time was a major hurdle while looking out. In addition, trusting Google photos unlimited storage option for lifetime, I have installed Google photos app in all my relatives and family members' phone. It did not stop there, I have convinced them to upload all their old mobile photo into Google photos and ensured they follow this practice, even if they switch their mobile phones every year. Now, if I am moving out of Google photos, then I need to lookout for option that offers family sharing and larger storage space at an affordable pricing.

The prices of the mobile phones have also gone up drastically and the value of mobile phone upgrade makes very little sense. People were forced to select mobile phones based on the compulsion to show off their status and financial ability to get upgraded mobile phones. With the COVID pandemic hitting everyone hard, the time has come to compare the basic functionalities of mobile phone and the cost associated with it.
