How to conveniently transfer photos from a smartphone to a PC

While many companies use their own Cloud solutions, Sony Xperia users have the option of using Box, which comes pre-loaded on most of the company's new smartphones. It’s a simple set up that enables photos to be automatically uploaded to the cloud; you can then easily access your favourite photographs on the PC. Sony Xperia handset owners who still have not subscribed to this web storage service can install the Box software on your PC to begin with. You can even access it online at While registering for the service, choose the free version; Box off ers you 5 – 50GB of space for free. New Xperia customers are given as much as 5GB of storage space for free.
If you find the storage space to be too low for your needs, you can choose to buy more space too. Look for the Box app on your phone. If it isn’t installed, you can download it via the Google Play store. Open the app, sign in, set up your account and you’re good to go. You can choose to upload pics manually or via other apps. Box can be used to store and share all kinds of files. The service
lets you access all your files from any supported device through the app or a browser, anywhere you might be. All you need to do is connect to the Internet.
NOTE Unlike Apple’s Photo Stream service, your photographs will remain permanently stored in Box. You will need to manually remove all your photographs and files later if the available free space gets low.
