    So why is it that my Verizon LG Optimus Exceed isn't compatible via play store with Instagram but if I just download the apk and install it, it works perfectly fine?

    There are probably a few versions of the app in Play - when you install it on your phone, it looks for the version tht will work on your phone - according to specs put in by the developer. If the developer goofed, the app will run on your phone, but Play will say it won't.

    Then again, some day you may try some function and find that it doesn't work on your phone.
