So my Blackberry keeled over last month. I made the switch to Android and upgraded to a Samsung Captivate Glide. I’d intended to get the Captivate minus the glide feature since I’d read so many reviews comparing it to the iPhone, which I’m not a fan of. My mom has one. I don’t get the hype. After seeing this one at Wal-Mart, I figured, hey, I text a lot and the extra keyboard will be handy. Turns out I hardly use it. What’s really impressive is the camera. At 8 megapixels the pictures come out almost as nice as the ones I take with my Rebel xt.
One of the first apps I installed was Instagram, since I have a happy trigger finger and like the option of updating people with pictures instead of words. Fewer words, anyway. I also use Magic Hour (infinite, custom filters!) and the Vignette demo (because I just can’t justify paying $4 for an app yet). I’m getting a lot more enjoyment out of it than I thought I would, probably ’cause the camera on my Blackberry was horrid even in bright light. Now if only I had more to snap pics of than trees and cats and what’s on my desk.
I’m weirdosayswhat. Follow me if you wish. If you don’t have Instagram on your phone, you can still follow my updates on Statigr.am. You can even leave comments if you have a Facebook account. I really want to start posting photo updates again so no sweat; I’m sure a lot of these will make it in there.
If you’re a fellow user, feel free to leave your name below. I need more pretty photos to look at!
