Our top equipment picks
We love Google Photos because it's wonderfully simple and incredibly accessible to all Android users. It nails the basics of backing up videos and images, editing tools, auto-sync, and sharing options. What's more, you can even use Photos to create a Photo Book and have it printed in a physical form. Now that's something your everyday gallery app can't do! So whether it's an image viewer you're looking for or a cloud storage platform, Google Photos knocks the ball out of the park.

Thanks for the tip!
Why is this something you should even do? This just seems deceptive. However, I can see the usefulness of tweaking location if Google's estimate was incorrect due to spotty signal.
Well officer I can prove I wasn't at the scene of the crime, look at the time and date of this photo! Great feature for criminals Google.
Seriously why is this even possible?
