No Storage Limit , Unlimited Storage On Google Photos.

One of the main advantages of smartphones Pixel and Pixel 2 is the access to the unlimited storage in Google Photos. This is an exclusive function of these devices, not available to other smartphones. One of the users of the XDA ( emime12 )portal managed to remove this restriction on other models of devices.
Hello guys, Today I'm going to share a simple trick which will give you access to unlimited storage on Google Photos. Now usually google provides 15 GB of cloud storage space with google drive. But for google's Pixel devices they provide unlimited storage to upload photos and videos. After this hack the photos will be uploaded in original quality.

  2. Once booted up, go to the
           Settings >> Apps >> Google Photos >> Clear Data.

After this when you open google photos you will see a prompt saying "You are able to use unlimited storage on your google pixel device".

For this method you will need build.prop Editor app. Download it and open the app,
At top right corner you will find a pencil icon.
