While Android users were delighted to find out that Instagram for Android was finally available on most Android phones, a vocal minority of iPhone owners are annoyed that their lo-fi photo fun has been crashed by Instagram Android users.
if you search Twitter for Android Instagram you’ll find a collection of complaints and laughable whining from Instagram users who can’t fathom the thought of being followed by someone who doesn’t use an iPhone.

My unscientific sampling reveals that most of these users are self identified elitists, #teamjacob…er #TeamiPhone or people you should be glad you don’t have to work with. You can watch the Instagram for Android whining in the video below.
Honestly. When did we get teams for our phones?
Here are a collection of Instagram for Android haters, compiled by Buzzfeed.

There’s no doubt that Android phones have bad cameras compared to the iPhone, but Instagram is about sharing cool filtered snapshots, not being a fanboy of the worst kind.
While there are visible differences when you compare the same photos side by side, I wonder how many of these complainers could pick out Android taken photos and iPhone photos with filters applied.
What’s your take on this app melodrama?
