This weekend we were incredibly lucky to be invited to Marwell Zoo after hours for our own Sunset Safari thanks to Three. We had our own private tour of the zoo after all the paying public had left. it was an amazing opportunity to be introduced to the animals by the zoo keepers themselves and Lara and Holly both loved the experience, getting to chat to the keepers about their favourite animals (the giraffes) and about the magical big cats.
Obviously, on a once-in-a-lifetime trip like this, you want to take a lot of photos to share with family and friends and so Three loaned us one of their LG Spirit handsets for the evening with which to take photos and videos; the idea being to share them online for the world to see. We were even furnished with our own selfie stick!
Ordinarily I'd be a bit scared of uploading photos and videos while I'm out and about because of the data that they use, but Three were confident that with their Pay As You Go rates (the lowest in the UK market at 3p a minute, 2p a text, 1p per MB of data) we'd be able to share all of our special memories without having to worry about using up all of our credit.
And they were right! That night I managed to share almost 100 photos, and lots of videos to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and, by the end of the evening, I'd barely made a dent in the credit on the phone. Awesomeness!
It has been a while since I've used an Android phone and I was really pleasantly surprised by the LG Spirit which I found very easy to configure, and fast to use when taking and uploading my photos. I managed to take a few really good photos but I'd say that the image quality, when the camera was zoomed, was low. We loved experimenting with family selfies though!
