    My DH has one of these. On my phone S5 when you look at your photos you can press 'more' then 'details' it will tell you the location of the pic and the date taken. His camera doesn't do this.
    Anyone know how to access this info?
    Thank you

    On android you need to turn on location recording (GPS) for photos. it is not on by default. Your camera app should do this. Or find a better one.

    In Gallery click on a photo. Once the photo is displayed touch the screen again. Top right of screen are three vertical dots. Click on that and it'll show a menu with "Show Date and Location Tags" and make sure that is on.

    Once its on and you've taken photos with it on then clicking on the "i" button above the photo (to the left of the three dots) will show the location.

    No when you. click the word 'more' comes up. Then 'Set as contact picture' then below that 'Set as wallpaper'.

    Well that's how I did it on my wife's Galaxy J5 and it is the same on my S7 Edge. You should have several options when you click the three vertical dots, rotate left, rotate right, slideshow, the ones you mentioned, the one I mentioned and print.

    On both my J5 and my OH's you display the photo and as above there are three vertical dots in the top right corner, click on them and listed at the top it says 'info' click on that and it gives details including date and location.

    Just checked you are in Gallery not Photos mine does the same as yours if you try to display details of a picture in Gallery you need to be in Photos.
