Let see the first picture you took using your smartphone

One thing that is peculiar with smartphone is taking of pictures. Some people lookout for higher camera pixel specifications before purchasing any smartphone because they would love to have their pictures to be of high digital quality. 

Below is the first picture I took with my smartphone. Let's see yours if you have any.

I have taken several images but deleted them. Now I really admire what you posted and will soon look for one and post. I love that image.

Thanks my friend. I have so much affection for water settings and it's the reason why I always visit the beach any time I have spare time.

The water behind me in the picture is a huge lake where people normally go to have fun in our capital territory Abuja.

Going back to pictures that you have taken in a long time Is a great thing to do, I also have a photo of me in the famous Ezeagu cave in Eastern Nigeria and many other places, pictures are good ways to keep memories.

Wow it a great thing that we have Nigerian here, and the photo was also taken in the capital territory Abuja. Nice concept there.

The image is a great one. I love water too. It happens to have a cooling effect on me. If am angry I soon cool off.

Yeah, making that kind of image can make kill your boredom, because if you don't have much time and don't know what to do, you can check your gallery and take the photos that you have taken before.

I can't remember my first image I took with my phone but if I do I will post it immediately, but I think I took images in the store to check the camera before going home but I deleted it shortly.

Unless you have wiped or deleted your camera gallery pictures, it's still very easy to locate the first pictures that was taken with the smartphone as it would be the first picture in the gallery.

I am looking at how I will be able to add a picture to the thread but I can't really find it. The thing is that I have taken lots of them and it has always been a great experience doing so as I get to have lots of fun snapping pictures while I was in the University.

It's very easy to upload your photos my friend. Just on the left side of the reply box where you see bold alphabet icon, italic icon etc, scroll it up and you will see the photo or picture icon.

Click on the photo icon and it will show you how to upload your photos. I'm looking forward to seeing your pictures.

I remember when I just entered the University and I was a novice without knowing much, you will see us then running up and down like men without cardinals and we will be very confused, how I wish I still have the photos of my first year, the year I was inexperienced and was looking for a mentor.

Picture keeps our memory and sometimes when we go back to look at i we smile and just can't believe how far we have gone.

Good memories are fun when you have something that reminds you of those moments that you love so much.

When photography was invented is when the world took a whole new dimension in keeping old memories.

My first picture (and most of them) are of my children so I’m not going to post those online - but I also take a lot of landscape shots of my local area. That tends to be the majority of what my phone camera roll is made up of!



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Martinsx1

It's alright my friend to try and keep your family away from public glare especially in online platforms. No one is going to blame you for that because you are simply looking out for your family and we all do that every now and then.

Landscape photography are a great one as well. I'm particularly keen to taking mountain pictures.

@martinsx1 yes, these days I think a lot of us worry about putting our kids pictures on the internet! I'm sure that for the most part it's fine, but often I worry about their pictures being out there without their consent, if that makes sense.

Once something is on the internet it seems to be on there forever - so I do try to be mindful of that!



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

@amelia88 It's true that the internet is very unforgiving when it comes to never forgetting what was uploaded online. Caution is always advised because even it takes years, it's definitely going to come hunting you in the future.

Same here. My camera phone is like really just for my kids because almost all in it are about them. Parties they attended, programs in school, artworks and more.

First photo that I have in my smartphone is of me and my daughter just in bed and making faces.

Wow, that's really cute.

Your first camera with your smartphone was great and it is a memory that should last, am trying to imagine it.

Really, it's what fun to see and if I had my picture when I was a kid I would happily post it here so you can see how my childhood was, last time I saw one of them I couldn't believe it because it was so different from my present statue.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I still have my childhood pictures because my parents have this habit of keeping a photo album of all our childhood stages.

There are still pictures of when I was still a toddler here in my family photo album. Whether I look at them, it makes me happy.

I deleted it already so I cannot post the first picture here taken from my latest smartphone but I remember where I took it. I was in SM Mall at that time. It was the time where in we bought my smartphone and as a testing someone took a picture of me in a crowded place inside the mall.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

ElectorAlexande

I did the same thing the first day I bought my own smartphone, I think it's something that most people does when they acquire their new device to check the camera quality and originality.

Have tested to techno phones before with the same camera quality but the brightness was good in one and darker in the other even after setting it, so it's good to test the camera when buying a new phone so you can return it if it's not clear.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

edencaga

Yes, that's right. I think most people do that thing first just to check if the camera is working well or not so you can easily change it if there's any problem.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

mdayrit

That is usually the first photo that a person buying a camera phone will have. That is to test if it is working right and how clear is the result. My phone was given as a gift so the first photo that I have is already at home with my daughter. But still the intention of taking that first photo is to see how clear is the camera.

Nice I love the stories that I get to read on this platform each and every day. The special moments and bonds that are created and helped to be created on and on are so great.

edencaga

Yes that's true. It also serves as your remembrance as when you first bought your phone. I remember my mother gave me a gift of Samsung Android phone and I was very happy as it was kind of expensive and we took some pictures there but after how many days my ex took it from me and he wanted to claim that it was his phone. He even got mad at me since I wanted to get that from him. I just let him borrow my phone.

I actually still have the first pictures which I took with my Nokia E5. It was just like yours taken right inside the shopping mall where I bought the phone back then. If my memory serves me well, it should be in 2008 when I purchased the phone.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

ajahcuizon

I also experienced the same thing. That time, me and my boyfriend bought a brand new phone from the store. Well, he bought the phone so he own it but I was the one who checked on it. In order to check the camera, I also took a random picture inside the mall to see if the camera works.

I already deleted the first picture that I took, but I remember what it is. The first photo that I had in my phone is my brother's toys.

I know that most people would have already lost or deleted the first pictures they snapped with their smartphone.

I would have lost mine but I always have this habit of transferring my pictures to my laptop. It was how I was still possible to have this picture till now.

Your photo was nice. The quality of your mobile camera is good. I remember that kind of pause. I think it is popular nowadays. Many people did that.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Martinsx1

Thanks Mark8625. My phone camera is 24 mega pixel quality, so it's the reason why the picture looked good.

The pose is called DAB. It's very common now especially in the music industry. I learnt it from one night party I went to years ago.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

edencaga

My brother do that pose always whenever I ask him and he answer me and when he already answered my question he then do that pose. I have seen a lot of pose like that from my friends and I'm thinking why they do that and where is it came from.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Martinsx1

The pose is called "Dab". It's a very popular photo pose which mostly celebrities and musicians are keen to do all the time for their magazines cover photos and social media uploads.

One of my favorite footballer by name Paul Pogba is very used to striking the pose whenever he scores a goal.

The first picture I took with my smartphone now is my face, I take a selfie before I buy a phone, so that I can check the quality of the camera of the phone that I will be buying.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I know some people who behave exactly like this when it comes to buying a new smartphone. They are more interested in the smartphone camera quality than any other specifications which the phone might bear.

Sadly, the first picture that I have took using my hard-earned smartphone was a selfie of mine that was long deleted. That was the time when I get addicted to taking selfies, like everytime I have to take a more than 10 photos of myself. I'm glad that I'm completely done with that stage. I have important things to do now than taking selfies everytime.

Most females are fond of taking pictures especially selfies. It's as if their lives depends on those pictures and they will upload all of these photos on their social media accounts in a day and repeat the same thing tomorrow.

I was asked if I can take photos on my phone before for marketing, and the image was so crappy and pixelated that my employer said no, LOL. Here's what it looked like:

Let see the first picture you took using your smartphone



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Youngshark

Does not look that bad from my point of view. which camera did you use or rather what was the phone that you bought and what are the specifications for its camera. I am sure that you have taken several other after being sure that it was the one you had to choose.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

NerdIndeed

I used my Samsung J7, and I believe it has a 13MP back camera. And you were right, I have taken previous ones, and most of them came out as blurred in some way and not ideal to use for marketing purposes.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

mdayrit

It doesn't look pixelated to me. Might be a focus problem that is why the subject (which I assume is the remote controller) is a bit blurred. If photos will be used for marketing, then I guess your camera is not really fit to take photos. Marketing photos should be clear and have lively colors.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

NerdIndeed

It is as you cannot clearly see the text on the remote control. If it is for marketing purposes, the kind of camera I have does not even pass the standard.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Haha, that's a very funny picture of your television remote controller.

Well, it looks nice in my opinion but what I love seeing most in the picture is your glass table. It looks exactly like mine.

The image doesn't look so bad but for marketing purposes I guess that wouldn't do. You could try and tweak your camera settings a bit and see if it will improve.

Sadly I can't show the first image I took on my phone because it's a photo of my mom and I and I'm a bit shy about showing my face Let see the first picture you took using your smartphone



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I have tried everything and tweaked every setting on my camera app to produce better quality photos unfortunately to no avail. Maybe that's how far it can go. The ones who are really well-suited for marketing purposes are high-end digital cameras.

Even gcam app didn't work on your phone? I keep seeing it get mentioned around in phone groups. They say it takes really nice photos if you use it, I'm not sure because I haven't tried it myself.

You could give it a try IF your phone is rooted. If it's not then don't. I don't actually agree with rooting a phone as sometimes it does more harm than good.

This one I took when I was on my way from purchasing my smartphone. I witnessed an accident where a small truck carrying glasses had collided onto a car that had braked in front of it. I had to save the memory. Let see the first picture you took using your smartphone

Yeeah definitely I still remember it to this moment. It was like it was meant to be pictured as the first thing with my camera as I had just come from purchasing it. It is a special memory and one that I will live on to reminisce.

Oh my goodness! That’s a lot of broken glass and I could see why documenting it via a photo would have been necessary. I hope no one was seriously injured in the accident!

Luckily there were no injuries which happened during that accident. As you can see in the picture it was quite minor and the cars were not moving at a great speed so the drivers were able to escape unhurt.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I think it must look worse than it really was because of all that broken glass! It makes it look like it was a really bad collision. Glad to hear that no one was hurt though, that's always my first concern when an accident has taken place.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

It looks like that because the small lorry that collided was carrying construction glasses or rather windows. This is why they were splattered all over after the crash.

I checked on my Social Media account after seeing this post. The oldest photo that I uploaded was a photo of me beside a beautiful flower. I'm not certain that this was the very first photo that I took using a smartphone. It was taken on the year 2011 when we had an outing on a beach resort with my workmates. The quality of the photo was okay but not that HD since it was too old where megapixels of cameras are low. Seeing my old photos makes smile, those photos are moments that full of happy memories. We are thankful that smartphones can capture those.

If you are able to download the picture off your social media account, it would be very nice to have a look at it when you upload it here. I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures.

I believe that most people are of the same habit as you do when they purchase a new smartphone product. They would have everything in it tested out in order to be sure they are fully functional before they pay and take the phone products home.

This is exactly why most people have their first pictures to be the one taken when they purchase their phones.

I find the picture you included really cool. Despite that the weather is bad and the background does not look like a greeny or a perfect scene but, I like the man's pose there.

It was in a lake area as you can see clearly the huge lake behind me. So, the weather is bound to be gloomy and it was in the evening time that I went to the lake as it wouldn't fun having to suffer harsh sunlight at the lake when I'm trying to have fun.

If it was during the day, I'm very sure that the picture would be a bit clearer than it was there but all the same, I'm sure it looked good generally.

It was in the evening time that I have the picture taken at the lake which you can see clearly behind me in the picture and it's why the picture wasn't too bright.

If there was sun or in the day time that I took the picture, I'm sure it would have looked brighter that it was there.

You are very funny my friend. It doesn't take anything to snap pictures with your new smartphone even if it's with low camera mega pixel.

Just initiate the phone camera and snap anything close to you. You can easily take a selfie and I'm sure that it will look good.

Thanks mate. I'm using the 13 Megapixel camera of Oppo A83 2018. I actually used a third party camera app for this one because my smartphone's camera is just too bad for low light shots especially in the evening. The app I used is Open Camera and it's available on the Android Play Store and maybe on the iOS App Store as well.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

NerdIndeed

Thanks, man. Then I guess it's true as advertised, that Oppo smartphones indeed have great cameras. I thought it was only a gimmick. I'll check out the app you shared and see if it does make a difference on mine. Thanks again!



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

jaybee19

You're welcome. Actually no, their smartphone cameras aren't that great with low lighting scenarios and so you need third party apps like the Open Camera. Although, with good lighting conditions, you can get decent photos with Oppo smartphones. However, their cameras are unreliable with video recording because they have low stability and again, they're bad with low lighting conditions. I am actually considering buying a new smartphone after a year or more if I can save more money.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I see I'll ask a few friends of mine who have Oppo's and check their camera quality too Let see the first picture you took using your smartphone . Thanks, man!

Sure, you're welcome, man, It's actually a personal observation of mine and my phone belongs to the mid-range section of the Oppo Smartphone list and so i guess there might be differences on their flagship smartphones.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

NerdIndeed

Well, if mid-range Oppo phones produce that kind of quality, I believe the high-end ones will do better. I think it's time for me to switch brands from Samsung to Oppo. I'll try to check out prices first and compare. Thanks!



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

jaybee19

Well, yes totally. I believe that the high-range ones are bit better. But, as an Oppo user myself, it's best to always test first the product. And hearing that you're a Samsung user, I think Oppo is not the best upgrade for you (but it's still your choice mate). Personally, what I can recommend as an upgrade are Huawei phones because they have better cameras even on low light shots.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

NerdIndeed

Really? Honestly, I have limited knowledge when it comes to other phone brands because I have used Samsung phones all my life. If a seller would allow me to test the phones of those brands, why not? I'll make sure to purchase so she won't be annoyed. Thanks!



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

jaybee19

Oh, I'm sorry to hear that mate. I can actually relate to you because in the past, I am also an avid fan of Samsung and Nokia because it was the only known brands where I lived for 16 years until I transferred to the city. However, after knowing that other phone brands existed as well, I immediately researched about them. On the other hand, if it's okay with you, I would like to suggest that you first research about reviews on YouTube so that before going to a store, you already have a background about the phone that you will possibly buy.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I would say the first picture I took using my phone is my shihtzu dog. Smartphones have become an essential part of all of us's existence and almost every person owns his/her own smartphone. We people take selfie and also smartphones facilitates enthusiasts in shooting photos on the go using their own phone as a digital camera. additionally, not anyone owns a DSLR. And the usage of a DSLR is bulky to many because it carries granular controls over numerous aspects of imaging to be adjusted before taking pictures.

I have a shihtzu pup too! He's definitely a big portion of my camera roll - I feel like I take about as many pictures of my dog as I do of my kids, sometimes! I'm sure that's the case with a lot of pet owners too - our pets become a big part of our families!

This is very heartwarming to read. You know, I really love dogs. I like how you decided to take a shot of your shihtzu first using your phone. I remember my own dog back then, I randomly take a picture of him before. It almost consumes my remaining phone's memory space because I took a lot of shots. Few days after taking shots, my poor puppy died due to an unexplained illness. That breaks me totally in tears.

Sometimes I do love taking some photos during my idle time or some important occasion but then my problem is that my mobile phone doesn't have a good camera which really sucks since I cannot get a clear shot which I can used in my photo album.

These days I think many of us use our phone cameras more than we use an actual DSLR camera. For that reason it's one of the things I look at when purchasing a new phone.

Yes I agree with you and I am also having the same opinion with you, I really prefer those mobile phone that has a better and reliable camera because it can give us more advantage in using them. It is now very common to see some great cameras in some selected mobile phones because of the rapid advancement in technology nowadays and we should grab that opportunity to earn some benefits. Having a great camera can give more opportunities that we can enjoy, one is that we can used it for some earning opportunities out there.

This was actually one of the first photos I took with my phone, and it’s really one of the only ones I ever took besides like three or four others. I was never much of a fan of using my smartphone to take photos, because I almost always have my DSLR camera with me. This was just one of those moments of me hanging out with my cat, and my camera was too far away to take a picture so I just grabbed my phone instead.

Awww! I've got a ridiculous amount of pictures of my dog on my phone. He's really treated as one of our family members and is adorably photogenic so it's hard not to snap away when he's doing something cute.

I'm sure most of us who have a pet are in the same boat!



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

DenisP

Oh, I definitely understand what you mean. I have loads of pictures that I’ve taken of my cats. As you had mentioned, pets are so adorably photogenic that practically every picture you take of them can be saved as a precious memory—even the ones where they’re being super derpy.

It also comes in handy to have a DSLR with a high shutter speed, since both cats and dogs don’t like to be particularly still for very long. Trying to capture them with a smartphone just ends up as a blurry mess more often than not.

It’s when they’re running around and being goofs that I can capture them in their purest form, haha.
