You Had Me At Unlimited Pic Storage!!

1019 Views

*Stands up* Hi Everyone, *waves* my name is OldGreg and I am a photo and video hoarder. I regularly punish my phone’s internal storage with a never ending stream of pics and vids that I use to serve as memories in my daily adventures. Let me paint a picture for you.

 

It’s overcast and about 65 degrees in Portland, Oregon. It’s the perfect weather for walking from my downtown hotel to Pine State Biscuits to get my brunch on. I get myself ready and head out onto the street for my 15 minute commute. As I’m walking I’m taking in all the city has to offer. Niche clothing shops, bakeries, coffee shops, food trucks, and mostly the foliage. Everything is bursting with life all around me and there is so much growing here that I don’t have back home! Cherry blossoms fall from the sky, there are tulips the size of a softball, and lush green spilling out of every planter. It’s beautiful and amazing and my inner shutterbug is screaming out that I have to take a picture of ALL OF IT. Before I know it, I’ve made it about 5 minutes into my walk and have accumulated at least 50 pictures of various plants I couldn’t begin to tell you the name of. By the time I get to my brunch destination, I’ve easily racked up another 100 pictures and panoramas of the city skyline and the towering pine trees lining the landscape. Once I’m done snapping enough pictures of the gravy adorned chicken biscuit brunch beauty, I’m easily sitting at around 200 pictures on my phone. It’s barely 10:30 AM and I’m already starting to wonder how much longer I can keep this up before my phone’s storage starts telling me to chill out or start deleting my pictures.

 

I didn’t bring my laptop with me on my out-of-state adventures and I begin to worry about how I’m going to store the rest of the photos I’m guaranteed to be taking over the rest of my trip. Que the comic-style lightbulb flashing over my head as I realize that Sprint has me covered for this exact situation. With Sprint Complete, I have access to the Sprint Complete Storage app. This gives me UNLIMITED storage space for my photo and videos in full resolution without compression. I pop into the nearest coffee shop, download the free app, hop on the free WiFi, and start uploading my photos while enjoying a fresh pastry and cold brew coffee, and I’m back on my way.

 

Sprint Complete Storage is THE WAY TO GO when you are a photo hoarder like me. It’s super easy to log in and start offloading the pictures directly from your device and right into the cloud for later retrieval whenever and wherever you want. You can even set the app to automatically upload your photos for you in the background without having to access the app. Pretty slick!

 

So what if you don’t have Sprint Complete? No big deal! Sprint will still give you 5GB of storage for FREE. Just download the app, quickly and easily setup an account, and you’re good to go with some free backup storage with all the same features as Sprint Complete users!

 

Be sure to go out and grab the app HERE on the iOS App Store and Here on the Google Play Store and start enjoying all the free, uncompressed, photos and video storage you get with Sprint Complete! Be sure to stop back by and share your experience with us and some pictures from your adventures! Enjoy some of the shots from my trip below!

The pictures of Tree Rose and Japanese Garden are cool, although seeing someone's left overs is not really type of picture I prefer to see. A better picture of the Reggie would of been before it was eaten for everyone to see it.

 

Regarding cloud storage, I dislike any cloud storage option mainly because traveling will limit your access with no Sprint coverage or Wi-Fi.  I made the mistake of using cloud and then was not able to access the information I need while on vacation. I prefer micro SD card storage with so many storage options like 128, 256, 500 GB and even  1TB now. Why use cloud when you have so many storage options on your device?

I see where it would help for devices without SD card slots, although many OEMs make their devices now with various storage options on newer devices for this reason too!

I like the idea of cloud storage over having my pictures stored on an SD card. I learned that the hard way when I used to store all my pictures on my portable hard drive and/or SD card and my laptop bag was stolen with my phone and external hard drive. Stolen bag= stolen memories. If I would have backed up to the cloud I would still have access to my pictures of my late father that are now forever lost. 😞 Huge fan of cloud storage now... and it's Free? I'm in!

Yes, cloud storage has many benefits and I have pictures backed up to the cloud on my Note 5 due to no SD card slot. Current phone has SD slot and I have over 100GB on Google Drive & OneDrive plus another 50GB on Box. Downloading an app for 5GB storage is not worth it for me when not even close to cloud storage limits already available on my phone without downloading another app. Depending on camera settings, 5 GB of storage will go fast for pictures.

 

MicroSD card is a preference because network connection is not dependable, especially when traveling.

I agree. 5GB would also not be enough for me as I am a prolific photo taker. That's why I like that I have UNLIMITED Cloud Storage with the Sprint Complete App. Boom! Winning!
