    My Phone won't stop syncing Google Photos its like this already over 3-4 days almost with No stop the results?
    Overheating like crazy over 110F maim source of battery drain within 2 hours off charger its dead!
    Anybody has a solution or fix how to make this stop?
    When I shut it off from under the settings it just turns its self back on without asking no matter how many times I try!

    Where are you shutting it off at? If you got to Settings/Accounts/Google you should be able to untick the option there and kill it for good

    Try resetting app preferences. Settings>Apps>menu>reset app preferences. This sometimes helps with Play issues. I have not thought of this before to suggest with a sync issue but it is worth a try.

    I am talking from this setting! I uncheck it and it rechecks and starts all up by its self!

    Same here, but I don't wanna do a hard reset! I hope I'll find a way somehow to fix this

    Did you go into the Photos app and turn off Auto Sync there?

    What about disabling that and Google+ see if that helps. Maybe disable 1 at a time let's narrow down which app it is.

    Can you post some screen shots of the battery usage so we know exactly what app it is

    On my note 4 I don't have the Google photos backup. Just Google+ photos. Not that long ago Google released their own photos app that was different than the one with Google+ can you disable the Google photos in application manager? If you done use google+ we can disable that also

    Google Photos can't be "Disabled" since its a downloaded app but as I said once you installed the Google Photos app the photo part from Google+ disappears from Google+ for good and everything goes straight from the Photos app

    OK so you did download the new app. Is it something you use? Can you just delete it? I didn't add it to my phone because I don't use google+ and I use quick pic for my gallery. I'd send Google an email on it and tell them there is a bug and it wants to sync and keeps turning itself on

    I wish there is something I could just delete and it will fix its self but unfortunately it's not the case!
