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...

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.

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.
