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!

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do.
You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward. - Amelia Earhart
