Moto Z Droid Comes With Free 2-Years Of Unlimited Original-Quality Google Photos Storage
Although Lenovo has not revealed any details about the Moto Z Droid handset for Verizon during Moto Z event, we all know Lenovo is building one. Now, a recent finding from 9to5google reveals an important info about the Moto Z Droid. The details found on the upcoming handset's web page, reveals that buyers for Verizon's Moto Z Droid will get 2-years of unlimited original quality Google Photos storage free.
Google Photos are available in two versions: the standard free edition, which compress your photo and the professional version which stores uncompressed original quality images. Now it seems like Lenovo/Verizon has struck a deal with Google that bundles Google Photos app with your device. With the built in Google Photos app, you can back-up your photos in their original quality without any compression.
Google Photos does not cost anything, but it is limited to 16-megapixel images and 1080p videos. In addition, instead of saving images in their original state, it keeps compressed jpeg versions. The only way stores your images uncompressed without losing quality is to upload them to Google Drive, which only gives you 15GB of free storage. With this deal you will have completely unlimited space to use.
Your Moto Z Droid Edition comes with up to two years of free storage at original quality in Google Photos, the smarter way to store photos and videos. They're automatically backed up, organized, and searchable, so you can find and share photos faster than ever.
Before you get all excited, please remember that this is only a promotional offer and any unlimited storage you get is for the first 2-Years. After that you have to buy extra storage space before it starts eating up your Google Drive storage once again. If the amount of photos you have stored exceeds 15GB then you may risk losing your pictures unless you upgrade. Currently the upgrading to 100GB will cost you $1.99 per month.
In addition, there are also rumors circulating interwebs that points that the upcoming Nexus phone may also offer unlimited original-quality photo storage, as well.
