Google Pixel 4 Photo Storage Question 0 Recommended Answers 1 Reply 0 Upvotes

I'm a bit confused.. Would it even matter if it's not unlimited since the original size photo from the pixel meets the minimum resolution before it counts towards your storage? (of course 4k videos don't count, but photos should be good even in original resolution since specs show 12MP + 16MP camera)

Hi Joseph,
Looking at the support page (Choose the upload size of your photos and videos), it looks like images will still be compressed so that they take up less space, but they will not be resized from any lower than 16 MP.
Here's a great article by phone arena that explains it in more detail. Google Photos High Quality vs Original.
Basically, their findings suggest that you would have to zoom into 500% or more to look at the pixels in an image to see any difference. Google's compression algorithm seems to be pretty great.
