Looking to switch to a non-apple phone after having an iphone phones since the late 2000's. (not the same one!).
My folks, wifes folks, wife and other family members all have iphones so stuff like Facetime is great but what's really got me locked into this family-iphone-ness is the shared albums we have where we post photos of the kids for the grandparents to see.
The wife's parents are going to be switching to Huawei phones and I'm thinking about a Xiaomi Mi Note 10 for it's amazing camera capabilities for the fraction of the cost of an iPhone11.
The wife suggested an app called "FamilyAlbum" which we've downloaded to road test but think its more of a product for selling other products (prints, calendars etc) moreso than an image storage product. Not sure how high-res it stores the files.
There's Google Drive and Amazon Photos. I get amazon photo storage free with my Prime.
Anything else out there that's worth checking?
I'd like the images to be stored at max resolution and for it to be a solution that's going to be around for years to come. I guess an account for the kids to inherit.
Probably should be backing up to a HD too shouldn't I.
Google Photos Shared Albums
Google Photos will work but I've always liked Flickr. You can upload hi res photos at original size if you want. I also love that you can set an Apple TV screensaver to your account. Their site and mobile app are both great. No lo-res and crappy UI like Instagram.
Shite, should've also said that my wifes folks are in china so no access to Google unless they use a VPN I guess.
what about chinese cloud services like Weiyun? I read you get 10TB for free? Would love to know if it works in the west,
