What I do as a Hobby…

CaptureSveta picked up a old Samsung smartphone so that I could use GPS and have a always carry camera. Well neither worked properly and since it was Symbian operating system, there was not much I could do with it. Literally junk, until I thought about installing android in it. I knew that the phone had a high quality camera and it had GPS built in. I also knew that Android could be shoehorned in if I so desired…

I took the Android 4.4.2 operating system from a Fly I4490i phone download from the internet and recompiled it. Then using a flash program made for phones. I experimented and experimented. The image the phone took, before I Androidized, it was terrible…

The camera alone was worth the effort, but I also have a working GPS in a small form factor. Battery life doubled and the phone is just 100% more usable. It is a little bit slow, but I have more time than money!

To me it was astounding at how it went from such a cloudy image to a very clear image. It answers a question about life. Software makes a difference…

I know that the images are of different things, but I took few images with the old, that I have very little to compare with. You can see the difference…

By the way, I am a computer – Android nut by hobby. Not very good, just a NUT!
