How To Use Camera Location Feature On Galaxy S8 And Galaxy S8+ Plus

Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus are great smartphones for taking pictures, among many other things. They are equipped with amazing camera features and you can store a lot of data on them. So, photographing everything you like while on vacation or on the go comes natural.

What is less natural, however, is disentangling all these graphic memories when you come back home. If you’ve taken hundreds or thousands of pictures, how are you supposed to categorize them and group them by the places where you’ve been? By looking at their date and trying to remember where were you on that day?
