When Samsung make an S6 Zoom with Duel Sim Cards...
That will be the perfect phone to capture the market.

"the Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom will be a slimmer body with no protruding lens" please let it be a sensible size! The S4 zoom was too much of a 'fatty' for me to use as a daily device - shame as a good phone and camera. Not sure about the idea of no lense though as i like the manual zoom control of the prior model and please for the love of god don't let it be software driven zooming like the lumias...

As well as in mobiles so far Samsung made better sensors and also made Sony's work better than Sony could.
The only sensor Sony has with an advantage was this one...which was mostly pixels.
So......on that one.
And in camera department Sony in no way even comes close to trashing Samsung.
So....on what level was that supposed to be a logical reply

They have been leaders in mobile cams only truly beaten by Nokia.
For years they brought the first to many mega pixel updates up to the 12Mp. And they were not just pixels. They were good camera. The Pixon 12 was one of the best for a couple years running.
And they brought first HD playback and recording. As well as 4k now too.
And did you see the Note comparison to the Lumia 1520???
Or how well the previous Zoom actually performed? It's only main disadvantage to Lumias was having less than half the pixels.
And there are many big names in true cameras that beat them for sure....But they are not on the bottom and their price point and excellent quality and features on the NX series make them really good....
So troll again?

Phone is not better in everything, but it's more than good enough and always with me, always charged, ready to shoot in a second.
The only thing I sometimes miss is zoom, but then, some pros with Nikons don't even use zoom lens because it detracts them from having fun, looking for better viewpoints and ultimately taking better photos. To each his own, I guess. ;-)
