    By "duplicate" photo, do you mean the same filename, same date, same size, just different folder location?

    Welcome to Android Central! That shouldn't happen. Are all of these photos in the /DCIM/Camera directory? Google Photos should back up all photos there, regardless of how similar they are.

    So these photos are all in the /DCIM/Camera directory on the phone, correct? If any of the photos are in a different directory, and if you haven't set Google Photos to back up that directory/folder, then they won't show up in your Google Photos on the web.

    Also, look in your Google Photos Archive section -- are any of the missing photos there?

    These aren't photos that have been edited in Google Photos, right? Or part of a burst photo?

    This is strange, because there's no native option in Google Photos to skip or eliminate duplicates automatically. Open Google Photos and tap Menu>Device Folders. Are the missing photos all in the Camera folder, or are any in some of the other folders? If the latter, then make sure those folders are also set to backup (because the default is that only the Camera folder will backup automatically).

    Where do you see that? I couldn't find that information anywhere, and I know from personal experience that similar pics will all get uploaded, regardless of how identical they are. Also found this: https://support.google.com/photos/thread/3954223?hl=en
