    I have an LG Nexus 4. It only has 8GB. I've only had my phone for about 3 weeks and I am constantly running out of memory (and I'm a fairly light user).

    I am using Google+ to sync my photos and videos. Here is my question: If I delete a photo from my device, will it be deleted from Google+?

    Ideally, I would like to regularly delete all the photos from my device every few weeks to make more room for more photos, etc.

    Welcome to Android Forums JohnKay.:)

    Once your images are on G+ you would need to delete them from there to get rid of them. You will be all set removing them from your phone and have them left on G+.

    You could test this my using an innocuous pic that you wouldn't mind losing. Let it sync to G+. Once there, delete it off of your phone and snap another photo. Once the second image is on G+ (so you know a sync action has occurred) check for the first. If it is still on G+, you are good to go.

    I hope this helps.
