The Pixel 5's camera is so good that I've ditched my mirrorless cam while traveling

The Pixel 5's camera is so good that I've ditched my mirrorless cam while traveling

A few years ago, the only camera in my pocket/bag was my phone. Starting with the LG G2 and going up to the G3, G4, Galaxy S7 Edge, then Pixel 2 XL, all that I could rely on was my phone and nothing else. I took good photos, great even, but I wanted to learn, improve, and capture better ones, so I bought a mirrorless Olympus cam with several lenses. It accompanied me on my trips to Nepal, the UAE, Spain, and Greece, and I loved using it. But as I was packing for my most recent trip to Belgium, I looked at my Olympus then at my Pixel 5 and made the rash decision to skip the former and rely solely on the latter.

Gallery Go has been experiencing a recent surge in popularity

Gallery Go has been experiencing a recent surge in popularity

Google Photos is one of the most popular gallery apps on Android. However, it's a relatively heavy one that sometimes requires a high amount of resources to run efficiently. To solve this issue, Google introduced Gallery Go for less powerful Android devices. The app is becoming increasingly popular, as it just passed 100 million installs on the Play Store, less than five months after reaching 50 million downloads.

Ten alternative gallery apps to better manage your photos

Ten alternative gallery apps to better manage your photos

For years, QuickPic was one of the first applications I would install on my phone, without even bothering to use the phone's default gallery app. It was small, fast, efficient, and free, but has sadly disappeared at the end of 2018. For a while, I've been trying to find a decent replacement, and some of the below apps are great candidates to become your next go-to gallery app.

We've updated this post with a few more apps, which we didn't cover in the initial post.

How to get rid of Google Photos' out-of-sync changes prompt on Android 11

How to get rid of Google Photos' out-of-sync changes prompt on Android 11

Android 11 introduced a new file accessing API, Scoped Storage. It essentially doesn't allow apps to access all files on your phone anymore, which is great for security. However, Scoped Storage also comes with some unwanted consequences. Non-Pixel phones running Android 11 have to ask users to confirm that they want to delete or restore images in Google Photos since the app isn't allowed to delete and restore files without explicit user consent anymore. Luckily, there's a fix for some phones.

Google's lightweight Gallery Go hits 50 million Play Store installs

Google's lightweight Gallery Go hits 50 million Play Store installs

With Google Photos getting as feature-laden as it is, it only makes sense that people would turn to a less storage-intensive alternative. Google introduced Gallery Go for its less powerful Android Go phones about a year and a half ago, and it's already reached 50 million Play Store installations in that time.

Scoped storage on Android 11 is ruining the Google Photos experience

Scoped storage on Android 11 is ruining the Google Photos experience

If you plan on buying a phone with Android 11 soon, you'll want to get used to your manufacturer's gallery app. And if you're going to be using Google Photos on something that's not a Pixel, be prepared to confirm every single thing you want to delete on the app. The reason why boils down to a new, well-intentioned policy in the operating system that leaves end users with some annoying consequences.

Here are a bunch of photos from the OnePlus Nord's cameras (Gallery)

Here are a bunch of photos from the OnePlus Nord's cameras (Gallery)

Camera quality has been a major weakness for OnePlus over the years, but it’s really stepped up its game in the last year or two. The OnePlus 7 Pro marked a significant improvement over what had come before, and the 7T Pro and 8 Pro have built on that foundation. The flagship OnePlus camera experience is, therefore, roughly on par with the best Samsung can muster but not at Google or Apple levels quite yet. But what about the new mid-range offering from OnePlus?

We took a bunch of camera samples on our OnePlus 8 Pro (Gallery)

The OnePlus 8 Pro delivers some considerable improvements (on paper) with its cameras compared to last year's 7 Pro and 7T. There are five imaging sensors on this behemoth of a phone, and four of those are on the back: including a wide angle, standard lens, telephoto, and "color shift" sensor, with a 48MP selfie shooter up front. How does this new system stack up? To answer that question, we've put together a gallery of examples that showcase just what the OnePlus 8 Pro can do.

The OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro just got their first Open Beta with RAM optimizations and Live Caption

As such, the company has finally published the first Open Beta for its latest flagships, the OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro, which comes with a slew of system and app enhancements and the previously Pixel 4-exclusive Live Caption.
