Both Google Photos and Apple iCloud Photo Library are used to backup photos and videos and access them from anywhere on any device. Actually both offer you a safe place to store your photos and videos. Backing up photos and videos to Google Photos or iCloud Photo Library is useful because you can get photos and videos back if something happens to your mobile phone. Once you have backed up photos and videos to Google Photos or iCloud, you can save space on your mobile phone.
Google Photos offers unlimited storage space to all its users to store photos and videos at no cost at all. The photos and videos stored in the cloud are compressed copies. Even if your photos and videos are compressed, there is no affect on quality. There is a limitation for uploading unlimited photos and videos to Google Photos. You can upload photos up to 16 megapixels and videos up to 1080p. Google offers 15GB of free storage space if you want to upload full quality originals of your photos. You can upgrade your free account to a paid monthly subscription plan for more storage space. It offers 100GB space for $2/month, 1TB space for $10/month and 10TB space for $100/month.
Apple iCloud offers 5GB of free storage space to all its users. You will get My Photo Stream for free. My Photo Stream allows you to store your most recent 1000 photos for 30days. Photo Stream allows you to automatically upload the photos you take to your iCloud storage and sync them across your devices. If you have 1500 photos in your Camera Roll folder, then only the latest 1000 photos are stored in your iCloud account online. Other 500 photos will be deleted from your iCloud Photo Stream. So you need to store them any other place safely. You should not rely on iCloud for more than 30 days. Photo Stream does not include videos, so any videos you capture are not automatically backed up. You can upgrade your free account to a paid subscription plan for more storage space. Apple charges 79p per month for 20GB and £2.99 per month for 200GB.
