I’ll begin by saying that this is definitely a #firstworldproblem blog post so forgive me from the get go.
I’ve been pondering for a while know if I should switch over to an Android phone (which yes, I do know how to use). I’ve had enough of Apple’s incessant updates that screw up my phone (they ALWAYS slow it down), which is never that old to begin with, and fighting for memory.
As you have probably already guessed, I take a lot of pictures with my phone. I see something and I take a picture of it usually with my phone because it’s what is on me. I don’t always carry my handy dandy, love of my life Canon 60D with me wherever I go, along with my prime lenses.
Plus, the only iPhone I’m ever able to afford is the one with the lowest memory available (in the past it was about 8GB, now it’s 16GB). I’ve had to delete apps and remove all my pictures just to update the operating system. I also don’t have that many apps to begin with (zero games, only photo related apps and NPR).
Suffice it to say I’ve had enough of them. The only reason I’ve kept using an iPhone for a little over two years now is because the VSCO app was only available for iPhones and not Androids. I REALLY love that app too. While they have a ton of their own filters, they allow you to play around with settings on your own and create your own filter for an image (i.e. contrast, exposure, saturation, etc.).
BUT now the VSCO app is finally available for Androids. Looks like I might be switching over come 2015.
Here’s my VSCO grid if you’re interested! (Although, if you follow me on Instagram, you’ve more than likely seen many of these photos.)
