Nextcloud is an open source private cloud storage application. It works pretty well. You install a server on your computer and the app on your phone.

The user interface is pretty clean and has features like multi-account support, automatic uploading of photos and videos, and you can share files. It's not as powerful as Google Drive, but it's much more private.
