    I don't want to use Dropbox as it sync's with my computer as well (plus I have more space on Google drive).

    Yes, with google+.

    Edit: whoops - I guess auto-uploaded google+ photos are independent of your google drive folder. But they share the same 5GB space according to some rules. Photos under a certain size are unlimited!

    Unlimited photo and video uploads
    As a Google+ user, you get the following:

    Unlimited photo uploads. Photos larger than 2,048 by 2,048 pixels will automatically be resized when uploading in Google+.
    Unlimited video uploads (up to 15 minutes per video, up to 1080p)

    It helps a little but whatever software is controlling the autofocus (this is proprietary, undocumented google code) is not very good. And all camera apps are dependent on it.

    Thanks.
    Tried it out and looks like it syncs all photos including some app ones (ie: Zooper).
    Found an app called FolderSync that does what I want. Point it towards the DCIM folder and one for Instagram and sync with Box/GDrive.

Apple doesn't half *** some aspects of the stock OS with the mindset that users will be able to seek out and replace the app. This is what Android has been doing up until Android 4.0. Gingerbread was rock solid, but ugly as hell. All the stock apps sucked. Barebones. Thats why I always used the Galaxy phones which put more effort into their stock Touchwiz than Stock Android at that point. But now, thankfully, Google seems to care about the out of box experience. The avg user cares about what their phone does NOW, not what it can do in the future. Samsung realized this and polished the crap out of Touchwiz and added a ton of features baked in to the OS, instead of expecting users to seek out the apps themselves. Google is still growing in this area. .
    Appreciate both you and Mike B's post. I was a happy iPhone user who went to the SG3 to evaluate, primarily for the development potential for an app we are designing for multiple platforms. While I liked the flexibility and do see potential, I have decided to return to the iPhone 4S for personal use, because many of the out of the box functionality issues Mike alluded. plus some of the more publicized problems - battery life, crashes, etc.Plus I the the screen size - don't need it and I keep losing it because it doesn't fit well in my pocket! Also can't text pics from the phone. BUT having said that, if you want a device you can use for developing proprietary productivity tools, this has real possibilities and I am glad to hear what DP Junior says Google is doing. So I will keep the phone on standby and see what happens in the near future. Just hope they don't go the road of apple on app development.

    You're more than welcome. I love the screen size for this phone and hope it doesn't get any bigger than this. I have huge hands but don't want the phablet to become the norm moving forward. Fits perfect in my pockets as well. This is probably the only thing that would keep me from moving back to iOS. Having held my friends 4S and 5, its just waaaay too small. Too hard to text and read anything. Thats just my opinion.

    Care to elaborate on this? You can't send MMS messages or what?

    Why couldn't you text photos from the phone? I do it all the time to BlackBerry and iPhones.
