    Earlier today I used my new Samsung Galaxy S7 to snap a quick picture. When I was done, I put the screen to sleep and put the phone away. Later I went to send a photo using a text message. There were 60 copies of that photo in my gallery and backed up to Google Photos. How could that have happened? I didn't use the phone after taking that picture. Is this a software corruption? A virus? Any ideas? Has this happened to anyone else? Thanks for any advice you can offer.

    doubt very seriously any virus got into the mix.

    more likely that somehow, the camera was set for Burst shots ( multiple shots with one click )

    Yup. Burst mode is the most likely culprit. Either you held on to the capture button too long or the camera was set to burst mode or best photo on one tap.
