Today we're going to show you how to setup an Instagram account on your Samsung Galaxy S5 or Samsung Galaxy Mini, or really any Android phone at all as long as you're running an updated version of the Android system.
To get started, turn on the phone and then unlock it.
Go down to the bottom right hand side, click the Apps button.
This will take you to your list of applications.
Look for Instagram which looks like this.
This will open up Instagram and it will offer us the option to Sign Up, Log In or Log In with Facebook.

Instagram will receive the following information, public profile, friends list and email address.

Here we need to set some details for the account.
When you are done press the checkmark.
Here you can find friends using Facebook.

We've got the option to take a photo.
We've got the option to see Recent Activity from the people we are following.
