Google Pixel phones keep all your pixels online for free

Photos and videos taken on Google's new phones will be stored online -- in original resolution -- for the life of the phones, shuttling older shots to cloud storage if you run out of room.

You can take all the 12-megapixel HDR+ photos and HD videos you want -- if you max out the local storage space on the phone, Google will transfer your older shots to the cloud automatically.

Since all photos are also uploaded to the Google Photos app, the entirety of your collection is just a simple search away.
