so I recently was backing up my photos to google photos, and I usually clear everything from my photo library because it takes up space. I make sure to delete the recently deleted album as well, but I noticed that Photos still takes up space in iPhone Storage under General.
I've tried rebooting and resetting all settings, but it doesn't seem to fix the problem. I disabled and deleted all of my photos in iCloud, so I don't see how that could be the cause of this problem. I found a similar post but I've tried everything suggested except for restoring the iPhone.
So before I go ahead and restore my phone, I just wanted to make sure if there's anything else I could try since that post is pretty old.
