The first version of Instagram for Android lacks some features that are available on IOS devices like Tilt Shift / Blur, Live Preview, Share from Feed and Share to Flickr.

Moreover, the differences are minimal; the filters and how to interact in the community Instagram are similar to the IOS version.
