For all you haters did you ever even actually see this phone, but I dont mean just by looking at it online either, I mean at the store and check out the pictures it takes. Probably not, which just means that it is just another reason for you guys to complain about something you know nothing about, yes it is a little bulky but it takes great pics, and of course you can use as a smartphone, which the s4 is a much better phone than the majority of phones out there, which makes it easier for alot of people, b/c you dont have to carry a camera and a phone around together so therefore if you think about it, which you wont, it actually will free up some space. Therefore if you dont like it, there is a simple solution then, just dont buy it, and quit your whinning. And atleast with samsung if something goes wrong theyre always willing to fix it or replace for free, unlike apple who wants to charge you for every little thing, esp if you dont buy it directly from them, and as far as nokia ya it is a great camera but completely crappy phone. But I guess every brand has it haters, I just cant believe all of this whinning and crying, it makes you wonder if it just a bunch of kids writing these reviews or full grown adults who are acting worse then our children.

You're just as bad a troll as them if you make such ridiculous claims.
We will have to wait and see.
This is promising though. It's always one great king camera from Samsung and then one from Nokia. You never know who will rain next...Sometimes Sony.

Even the Lumia 920 beats Samsung Galaxy S4 in terms of camera quality. This is no match for Nokia Pure view. This is just a crap. If i had to choose a camera phone then my pick would be Nokia 808!

But you couldn't think clearly through your jealous hating enough to make a logical statement.

Hey Samsung,

You should have made this camera-phone waterproof and shockproof to make it more appealing to consumers.

this phone is funny. so awkward when you are in public and you receive a call. "talking to a point and shoot camera"

samsung tried to copy again and failed because they can't copy the PureView's lossless zoom. if they, then sue samsung again.

Nokia's pureview tech is just the best for a smartphone / cameraphone. 808 pureview is just a proof of it.

> In reply to uniqe @ 2013-06-13 06:14 from t1$B - click to readthis is nowhere near to 808..

let alone be better..

808 advantages over this
1) 41 MP Carl Zeiss as compared to 16 MP
2) Xenon flash on 808
3) Lossless zoom in 808 as compared to 10X zoom only

This time copied OIS from Nokia but forgot to copy the time they will launch something with flash and say..EUREKA EUREKA..

I have an S3 Phone and a Galaxy Camera. Both are great. The idea of combining both into one that is only slightly thicker than the standard S3 is awesome.
