Avast said that 16% of the photos analyzed during the investigation were duplicates or photos taken by users in burst mode - that is, it automatically takes a number of photos.
6% of the total of the survey photos were blurry, poorly lit, or dark. As mentioned users, such photos are of poor quality and are not actually useful.

A waist photo They are usually 3MB in size, which means that when they are aggregated on an Android device, they get valuable space that they may need for other content. And in the case of the latest smartphones, with high resolution cameras etc, the size of the photo can be up to 12MB. Therefore, the total space occupied may be some GB.
