This week's sidebar poll: Is your Android your full-time camera?
A wise man once said the best camera is the one you have with you ...
There seem to be two camps when it comes to taking pictures — those who love to snap away and those who don't understand why someone wants to take so many damn pictures. I pitch my tent in the first camp. I love to take pictures of anything in front of my eyes worth looking at. I also followed some advice and decided that smartphone cameras really are good enough to use as your "camera" camera. I spent a few days on a bit of a mini-vacation, and didn't take my camera. Instead I took my LG G2 and the iPhone 5S — don't hate, that thing has a hell of a good camera on it.
I got some really great pictures, and some really bad pictures. I also came away with a bunch of questions about what I did wrong, which I'll be asking here soon enough. For now, my first question is simple. Do you use your Android as your full-time camera? Take the poll below and let us all know.

My micro4/3rds camera is small enough to take everywhere but has awesome image quality
It's obvious they won't ever replace your dslr (not meant for professional photography)
But as a means to capture that moment and for hobby photography they are very decent. And is yes the only camera I use and can afford Tbh skint after purchasing the Z2 lol Posted via Android Central App

They both do pretty good. The day they add optical zoom that doesn't add bulk to the phone and get a sensor that works well in low light I'd probably ditch using a regular camera, but I still use a regular camera for the good stuff when needed. That said I take far more pictures with my smartphones.
I had to ditch M7 GPe for Nexus 5 solely for the camera. M7 takes nice shots, but not enough detail.
Currently eying Olympus XZ-2. Sounds like a great P&S for reasonable price. My requirements are a fast lens and larger sensor than average P&S; and preferably no more than $300.
I would have never been able to do that with my previous phone, HTC M7. After the Disneyland experience I may just "forget" my DSLR more often.
