    Settings > swipe on right side > Photos + Camera > App. Here you can select Dropbox, configure and have it auto backup for photos + videos as soon as you take it.

    Thanks,

    i dont like Onedrive... Dropbox suits me just right, between my wife's Android, my tablet, my phone and my computer.

    yes i have this automatic setting on, but everytime i need to open dropbox, and seems that it starts from the beginning each time.

    I had the same experience using OneDrive on an iPhone. It's a matter of whether a particular company is able to use their service in the background. Looks like you can do it in the background on Android because everything is open. I don't think Dropbox would even allow for it on the iPhone as well.

    Echoing some of the other feedback, I too suggest using OneDrive. Why pay Dropbox? You get 100GB for free on OneDrive and it's integrated into the phone, desktop and even the XBOX. I personally don't like Dropbox, despite being given 20GB for free by one of their executives. It's the way the files are shared - I burned through 20GB immediately when I shared some folders to collaborate on some work. There was no telling who owned what files that was chewing up the quota. It's more straightfoward on OneDrive.
