  • in unlimited option, as long as all your pictures are under 16mp resolution, you always get to download your original file because they are stored without any further compression.

I believe that in "unlimited" option, even 12 MP files may be compressed in JPEG quality - say compressed from 7 MB to 3 MB. The pixel count remains the same, but not the JPEG quality and there might small differences be visible when zooming in.

Or am i wrong?

yip and as mentioned file sizes can vary massively, on my S8+ is I use the stock camera app file size (jpeg) is around 3 to 4 MB, if I used the modded camera app which removes compression etc. they range from 8 to 12MB...
