Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take?

Psst–Check out Our Developer-Friendly Holiday Guide!
The Holidays are just around the corner, but there’s still time for last-minute gift shopping! Are you still looking for those last minute presents for your geeky loved ones and yourself? If so, you should make your way over to the XDA-Developers Holiday Guide 2013!
This year, we’re dividing the Holiday Guide into three parts:
- Best Smartphones of Late 2013
- Best Tablets of Late 2013 (Coming Dec 18!)
- Best Community Apps of 2013 (Coming January 1!)
When making the guide, we tried to be a little different than most other sites. Rather than simply telling you which device we think is best, we put together the tools for your to decide which device(s) suit your individual needs. As such, you won’t find a “best device,” but rather, we cover various significant devices and explore their current states of development. Then at the end of each page, we ask you to contribute your opinions and vote for your favorites!
Starting in the coming days, we will also be listening to your opinions on the Best Community Apps of 2013. Stay tuned on the XDA Portal to learn more about how to vote for your favorite XDA user-created apps!
Make your way over to our newly created Holiday Guide to get started!
