    The A20S has apparently stopped uploading to Photos. That crappy little Icon is still doing its job, though. How can I fix this?

    Soft reset. Can you still do that with Bixby?

    what crappy icon are we talking about? and how do you know it has stopped uploading? is there an error? or just the pictures have not updated at all?

    What is Bixby? The crappy Icon is that lousy underpowered Cricket phone. It still uploads to Photos whereas the supposedly vastly superior A20S does not. Photos and videos taken with it have not appeared in Photos.

    have you tried launching Photos and hitting your avatar in the top right corner? this will bring up a menu where you can manually backup your photos.

    Would that be on the Icon? Photos keep crashing on the A20S. I cannot even send a report.

    I looked on the Icon but did not find manual. The items to be backed up are on the A20S. How do I do this?

    in google photos, at the very top will be your google avatar (if you made one). if you click on it, you should get your information including things like manage your account, your account storage, and also backup your account. if the backup sync has not automatically kicked in, you can manually have it backup. i'm out on the road right now so its hard for me to post a screenshot on what i'm talking about. if you have not found it yet, i will post it later when i have more time.

    Gallery seems to be at least partly working on the A20S. I checked out share but I guess that does not link to Photos. Is there a way to upload to that from Gallery?

    Bixby is another annoying snake in the grass, that sets your tablet into desktop mode, I really hate the idea of having to apply it since you are already taken such the note of,
    not able to think about oh around a trillion things you would consider to have and then, just oh wait, It is a horrible thing ever that Samsung launch, IMHO.

    I wish I could. I hate bloatware but I guess it's impossible to get rid of without rooting. I did root a Kyocera Rise years ago but it took days and a pc, not to mention that the phone had a kinder, gentler operating system. I hate the look of the "app drawer" (or is there even such a thing) in Android 10.
