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...

I can't seem to put it in my pocket, It would be better if they improve it to be thinner. If Sammy can't make thin camera phones even though they are no 1 in android they will end up at the bottom of the camera race. Nokia are going to release 3 new camera phones, a 41 mp one, a possible 20 mp and a pelican 16 seperate lense camera which way too advance for sammy to cope up. They can't release another flagship so soon since they recently released s4 they are going to wait atleast 7 months again while nokia is now going for another flagship since lumia 920 is almost a year old. Apple is releasing new iphone too. They are top earning yet not investing much to improve their camera since the camera used on their phones are even no match to the 2 year old 808.

It;s gonna be thicker. There is nothing wrong with that.
Just like Note and Optimus G Pro and upcoming Sony and such are for people who like large display devices.
Some people only carry tablets.

How can you say "its not that thick except in two places" when those 2 places make up well over 50% of the phone...????

My big issue is that it could've had better specs.
Although it's specs will definitely suffice and more would make it more expensive obviously.
Overall seems real promising. If anyone were to make fun of you for using this you could make fun of them for having such a miserable pathetic life.

I will not consider this phone as replacement to my Nokia 808 Pureview. I bought an SG Camera recently and Im not totally satisfy. Too strong flash, A little blurry when no flash was used and too delicate body parts.If they will use the same SG camera hardware, i will not definitely buy this. Why Samsung using so much plastic materials nowdays?

Second the Purview is not that old..still newish and not a grandfather
Third yes Nokia deserves mad respect....But guess what.
For many years Samsung has rivaled them in camera tech and beat them numerous times. Nokia was not the best or first to every camera. Take the Pixon12 for instance. Still one of the best around. The N8 didnt come out til almost a year later and was not even truly and fully superior.

Nokia's 808 Pureview doesn't have optical zoom. Get your facts straight.
