I've done the following but to no avail:
  • altered EXIF data: Date Taken
  • changed File Created date (unnecessary, because the File Created date is different from the erroneous date the Gallery is displaying)
  • renamed filename's date
  • completely delete the photos in the Gallery then re-add
  • disabled Samsung Cloud for Gallery

On PC, the file's properties data have no hint of the erroneous date at all.

Hence, this answer for example is ineffective to me. :(

erroneous date: Date/time of the phone first setup. Totally brand new

Please advise me. Thanks!

Update: It's very hazy to me how this Gallery app is interpreting a photo's date, it seems to cache/store that data elsewhere.

This method shared by Chee Choong works for me: https://forums.androidcentral.com/showthread.php?t=188664&p=2778844&viewfull=1#post2778844 (after you've altered photo's EXIF date)

But 1 photo of mine fails to get its date fixed. :( And that 3rd party app doesn't seem to support videos. :'(

If anyone has technical knowledge or information about this issue, please kindly share with me. :-*

Thank you!
