Storing photographs on Google Photos has become an easy way to treasure memories in their digital format forever. Though the app works splendidly on the Android operating system, there might be the chance you want to discontinue using it. For those who have tried doing that, there has been a challenge. Once the app is installed on the device, it is not enough to delete it because it keeps uploading photos even after that.
Google Photos uploads images on its own
The editor of Nashville Business Journal David Arnott recently reported the anomaly on his phone after he found that photos are getting uploaded even though he deleted the app a few months back. According to reports, Arnott decided to try the app once again and it was then he discovered that the app he has already deleted is uploading the photos on its own.
Though this initially appears to be an anomaly, it is actually not so as the settings of the app are related to the Google Settings of the phone. Therefore, users who do not want their photos to be uploaded via Google Photos need to visit Google settings and turn off “Google Photo Backup”.

Further stated in the report that one of the kind of bacteria known as “Pathogenic” known for spreading infections is found on the Smartphones that are being used by the doctors in the hospital.
What experts say?
Dr. Chao has stated that even though these bacteria are mild, they are harmful enough to cause blood infection in patients suffering from compromised immune. According to Dr. Chao, the mobile devices that are used so frequently in the hospital premises should also be cleaned through a disinfectant similar to the way cloths and hands are cleaned. It has also been seen that only nearly 5% of medical professionals do it regularly. Even though there are protocols for sterilizing equipment used in hospitals, nothing such is followed for the Smartphones, hence the same should be developed for the betterment of the future.

Wireless charging and power banks for smartphones might become an old story soon, as a Chinese manufacturer, Oukitel is reportedly working on a battery that needs to be charged once in a week, reports Phandroid.
Truth or myth?
Some recent images indicated Oukitel working on a smartphone battery that needs to be charged once in a week. Though there is no official confirmation from the manufacturers, the image represents the look of Samsung Galaxy S6 Active and is backed with 10,000 mAh battery.
While Oukitel is in the news for launching a phone with a bigger and stronger battery, the other Chinese mobile phone manufacturing companies Gionee as well as ZTE are also reported to experiment on the same. Though the battery power is the primary concern of people, many are also interested to know about the dimension and weight of the phone with the massive battery.
Availability of the smartphone
While the news that a smartphone with stronger battery may hit the market in the coming days, there are speculations regarding the availability of the phone outside the Asian market. People are interested to know, whether the company is at all interested to make the phone in bigger numbers. Yet, if they have plans of targeting the global market, then it might give a tough competition to Google phones, Apple or Samsung handsets.

Supposedly, this Edge Plus version will not be powered by a hugely powerful CPU but will only come with a Snapdragon 808 processor. As for the shutter, expect a 16 MP one on the back.
