Free and Unlimited Photo Uploading term has a catch, which Google made it only for photos in High Quality that are also compressed and optimized once you uploaded to Google Photos. You can configure that option under Google Photos Settings tab.

All your photos are beautifully organized date wise and you can manage your photos albums in your iPhone, iPad and in the Web as well. Photo Assistant feature helps you create stories, animations, collages, panoramas, movies and more in few taps on the screen. Backup feature allows you to setup automatic backup and sync to upload all your photos from Camera Roll to your Google Photos Storage account.
