Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom preview: First look

Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom preview: First look - read the full textJust taking the photo won't do these days - you'll want to edit and share it, then rake in the likes. Except most cameras pretty much bail out at the snapshot. Not the Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom though, a hybrid of a point-and-shoot with...

It's odd when people judge a phone immediately by how it looks...
Have we come so far to only judge things on appearances?!?
Come on, technology fans have witnessed a whole gamut of different shaped / sized phones - and each one appeals to different people...

I remember the Nokia 93e (I had one!) the 'transformer phone' - I've got a Note 2 now (who'd have thought people wanted phones THAT BIG?!?!?)

But remember the old HTC Tytan2's?!? And the phones with the slide out keyboards?

And the SonyE P800 / P900s?!?!

Come on people...

It's about functionality - the Samsung S4 Zoom is more than pocketable - it provides a brilliant halfway-house between camera / phone and something I wouldn't mind owning at all!

Look at the Nokia 920 - a real return to 'bulky is best' - as well as the N800 (camera phone)

Let's not judge by what it looks like, but what it can do, and how people will use it...

On holiday? Fantastic. Just to be able to have to hand for those daft moments with pets / friends / nights out - excellent...

And it's more than a decent enough smartphone as well...

What's not to like?

I agree i think samsung HAVE TO BE FOCUS so that its resources will not be everywhere. For premium market just make galaxy note and galaxy note camera for a higher segment.

Samsung scheming the market to much n makes its products floods the market. SAMSUNG BE FOCUS! Just make galaxy note,galaxy note full frame camera,galaxy note full frame interchangable lens with the most update 1080p n 800 snapdragon. Many people will not buy camera half sensor like that. Look at your galaxy camera without call function or samoled it is saleable? Why people think that your camera is not as good as nikon or leica.

With a 20x zoom on the galaxy camera, could someone clarify exactly why its worth upgrading to this one with a 10x zoom- is there anything specification wise that has been improved?

not even close just to call it a smartphone.
i have nokia N8 the one nokiafans keep bragging to have a superior camera etc, and i have to say its not worth my money.
i'm not samsung fans too, but judging other manufacture completely failed before you test it or use their device is inappropriate.
and for you who really want to search a good phone never listen to fansboy comments, i bought nokia N8 because of their bias reviews.
just go to gsmarena picture comparison tool and prove it your self, never ever again fall to fanboyism brainwash

5X internal zoom (ala stylish sony cybershot cameras) and no grip ( ala sony rx-100 : best compact camera IMO) would make the Samsung S4 zoom 50 times more practical and desirable.

Modern image stabilisers enable hand held sharp photos up to 30X even in poor light.

Why is it that my comments are always deleted by the admin?
All I said was if you compare the image quality of Nokia 808 and Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom with the same zoom levels, Nokia will always come on top.
Just look at the sample photos on both the reviews of Nokia 808 and the SGS4 Zoom... at least 2 of the photos have the same subject so you can compare the image quality directly.
