Bye Bye iPhone - Hello Samsung Alpha!

Well...it's finally happening! If you follow me on Twitter, you will remember the multiple times I have complained about my current phone situation....*sigh*

I've had my iPhone 4S for awhile now, and - well - it's not the best. The battery life is HORRID and only got worse after the iOS 8 upgrade. *fights air*

I've been contemplating making a switch and weighing out the pros and cons of different phones. I had been leaning towards a Samsung phone, and was lucky enough to get my hands on one this week thanks to styleblog.ca!

A few months ago I went to the launch party of the Samsung Alpha phone. They had brought in top Instagrammers who each took the Samsung Alpha out on the road, captured amazing shots and had different stations set up for the event. You could get reusable, canvas bags with the amazing images printed on, 3D prints of images, or even create your own custom art with multiple coloured images. All in all - it was a pretty great event. That was the first time I got my hands on an Samsung Alpha - and I was impressed!

The phone is incredibly light. Like - seriously light. Compared to my iPhone 4S - I feel like I am literally holding a feather. And, the screen size is equal to that of my entire iPhone 4S. Yeah...big improvement. The camera is a ridiculous improvement as well. 

All in all - a major upgrade in the phone department!


This, paired with my other addiction - my Samsung Galaxy camera - will have me improving my #selfie photography skills in no time!
