    I have automatic Camera upload on, and I have those folders set to keep offline in OneDrive. This means initially there are two (2) copies of each photo, one in the device camera storage and one in the OneDrive folder.

    OneDrive periodically prompts me to clear the local storage, which is great, but it would be better if it was done immediately, even before it is fully uploaded, because it's confusing to the user to have two (2) versions of the image stored in different places.

    I often crop photos after taking them. I don't need to retain the original. As a user the workflow is not clear. Since the native Android apps cannot see the copies in the OneDrive app, even if they are set to offline, the only practical place to make these changes is in the copy stored in the device, but this means OneDrive will not have it (in some cases) or will upload a second copy (depending if OneDrive detects this as a new file in the device storage).

    I believe the best solution is to immediately move the photos, after they are taken, to OneDrive and begin syncing to Camera Roll, but at the same time surface the Camera Roll folder to the Android Gallery so the user only sees one copy and can edit/share that copy with any Android App.

    It appears that OneDrive login page is using geolocation to determine which language to display. For example, here in the Hong Kong SAR it always displays in Chinese and there is no way to change this. Google.com on the other hand displays by default in English because my OS/Browser language is English and Google offers suggestions for Traditional and Simplified Chinese because of my geolocation.

    Microsoft got this wrong and plenty of my colleagues and friends in Hong Kong, who cannot read Chinese, are frustrated by this poor behaviour.
