Wow the most powerful and succesful camera phone receives an update, thankyou samsung i will pre order this asap
Owned the 1st one & enjoyed it.Sadly no major changes to the new one to write home about. Won't get this one if the rumors of the specs turn out to be true
Anonymous, 02 Jan 2014this is not a phoneow I am sorry, thanks for saying it and now I think this ...
what is tis excetly? cameratablet? camtab? ...?.
don't care, i think it's even more useless now it haves no sim-slot.
and samsung really suck in taking good pics even their normal cameras, my dad had one, it's broke now and it was a year old, I use my good old sony thats after 7 years still working just fine.
I personaly don't see the use for this type of equipment. So I have a camera I can play games with, text people or post on Facebook? I rather have a Phone with a decent camera for my snapshots thank you.
If I' am to take decent pictures I will bring my DSLR or G-series compact and upload my pictures prepped and ready for publication.
This device is not suitable for snapshots (pocket ability) and not suitable for good quality pictures. To me it loses on both fronts and for the apperent effort put into making this device thats a shame.
Clearly shows Samsung is dumping their lens' stock from the (not-a-best-seller) original device. In fact, the previous tech specs were bad at the time, these would've possibly sold better.
And wait a minute! No SIM slot? Terrible joke, Sam.
The canon sx280hs will simply wipe the ground wit this. Seriously? How much would this wb850f copy(which is only good in good light conditions like the first galaxy camera) plus extra hardware would cost? The 280 is already less than $200. It also wipes the 1020 without zooming. No over saturation and still is overall better even after the black update or (whatever it is called) even without zooming. Do you know what? Why not return to the gold days of 12mp cameras on phones with an acceptable pixel density and accurate color reproduction like the old Sony erricson aino? I don't care even if it was 3mp like the old k800 as long as it gets the color accurate? Are people too blind for this?
this is not a phone... if it is a phone, its name should be galaxy zoom 2 or what ever it is... this is just camera with network capability...
Samsung... Only Samsung would revamp a camera and not improve a single photo spec.
Come on! Faster processor and more ram and still same sensor, same flash unit, same image engine and not a single change in the lenses departament?
if you make a camaraphone, the one thing that is most important is the goddamn camera!
don't care if the hardware is better, if you buy this phone is it because it's a camera, not just for texting and calling...
greetings from all logical thinking people
samsung lost his mind !
Definately his company get close in upcoming day's if he beat flagship phones of his own !
note 2 with huge sensor on the back.. atleast the design of cam is different... relief
The upgraded hardware and OS is great....BUT WTF???? Same exact camera sensor??/maybe refined just a bit? No overall change in camera features??? Then what was the point? This is not a Galaxy Cam 2 it's an improved variant.
