    Default 1st smart phone.

    Just a heads up , if anyone notices a lot of photo's in my posts , its because I have finally bought a new fan dangle modern phone. HTC one M8.

    These things are awesome. I cant believe how much you can do with them. I've always been scare of these phones but have been able to learn to drive it really fast.

    I think we have created a monster.

    Dumb question, but can you put a photo in your post direct from the smart phone. Or how do you?

    Good question. I haven't tried that but what I've done so far is load my photo's into the laptop ( which did take a bit of messing around trying to work it out) then loading from my p/c . Took a while to work it all with no help cause I couldn't find where they had been saved.

    Congratulations mate. Android is a really easy operating system to learn. Have fun with it but just be mindful of your mobile data limit. They might sting you big time if you go over.

    For that there are apps like dropbox and google drive. Dropbox is good. If you jump through a few little hoops they give you 75gb of cloud storage. Just make sure to set it to only upload via wifi though.

    Gleno you can save your photos direct from phone on Google Drive or Dropbox. you need just make accounts for which you want use. Android is a really easy operating system to learn.

    They usually send me a text message once you get half way on your limit and another before your about to go over it, so go nuts!

    Just do it the same way as on the pc but it takes a few moments for the load screen to come up . Press select files and gives me options and I go to gallery choose the pic then press upload . It did take about a min to load .
