    Sharing and managing photos and videos

    Arrow left Xperia™ ZL support overview

    You can share photos and videos that you’ve saved on your device. You can also manage them in different ways. For example, you can work with photos in batches, delete photos and link them to contacts. If you have lots of photos saved on your device, it’s a good idea to regularly transfer them to a computer or to an external storage device in order to avoid any unpredictable loss of data. Doing so also frees up more space of your device. See Managing files using a computer .
