Which has to buy

I would like to know what is the best NAS for me. I have seen your videos and read articles and I’m currently thinking of buying Synology 923+ or UGREEN4800 plus. (I’m thinking about 4bay and but 2 hard drive now and as my data grows I can add more)
What I need is:
1. system to access files from my phone.
2. Watching movies and series (7TB is all movies and series)
3. Photo cloud storage private for all users (starting with 4 users and may expand) with ability to do all features of Apple photos and google photos.
4. Privacy since all documents are private.
5. Prefer to have a backup up (read about RAID but didn’t understand it yet)
Considering your requirements and preferences, the Synology DS423+ would be a suitable choice for your home NAS setup. Here’s how it aligns with your needs:

Synology DS423+ Overview

2. Mobile Access:

Synology offers mobile apps (DS File, DS Video, DS Photo, etc.) that enable seamless access to your files, movies, and photos from your phone or tablet. This makes it convenient for media streaming and accessing documents on the go.
