I'm sure this question is asked and answered but apparently I don't know enough to find the info in a search. It's not from lack of trying I promise!

In short, I've gone on a trip and taken thousands of photos. I've installed LR Mobile for Samsung and I've sync'd those photos. I can log into the web app and see them.

I'm in the process of moving everything from google photos over to LR. Google photos has a feature to easily delete photos from my phone that have been sync'd already. Is there something similar in LR Mobile? If so, can you point me to it? If not, can you tell me how others handle the workflow? I know I can select and delete in the gallery but I can't tell what's been sync'd successfully. Often, when I'm traveling, ,I take pictures faster than they'll sync overnight with lousy hotel wifi. My fear, obviously, is that I delete something that hasn't made the trip to LR yet.

Yeah, there's not an easy workflow for that. You could open Lightroom and make sure it's finished importing before you clear photos out of the Gallery app though, to ensure they safely imported. Lightroom doesn't do it automatically.
