iOS definitely strips EXIF data in some cases - perhaps it is just from
photos taken with the camera or maybe it varies slightly with OS
The Android case you are observing is probably because the EXIF data is
being stripped also.
Assuming you don't use a width/height argument on mobilePickPhoto then
we just return the data which we are given with no processing at all -
so you are getting what the OS wants you to get.
It might be that Samsung's camera app is a little more security
conscious than other Android variants :(
