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...

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

This is going to crash and reboot daily because it runs Android

Sharp was the first to came up with optical zoom - V602SH
Then Samsung introduce SPH-2300 in 2004 as well. Then introduce SCH-B600 in 2006. =)

Haha what a pathetic thing. A camera with smarthphone ambitions. Crappy screen, dual-core processor with Android with means it will be slow and laggy. Huge optical lens on the back, which makes it very uncomfortable to use. This is a camera, with smarthphone ambitions. Not a smarthphone with a good camera on the back. Face it, it's just the way it is. Sorry for samsung, but another failure trying to compete in the camera phone market.

15 mm thickness? Maybe on 1/3 of the device... Come on GSM Arena,be objective. You had it in your hands, don't tell me you didn't measure real thickness?

Nokia already made a cameraphone with optical zoom (N93 announced in 2006) before Samsung W880 (announced in 2009)

Before saying Samsung copying Nokia's PureView, Samsung already made a cameraphone with optical zoom before Nokia 808 PureView. =)

You better show somedamn RESPECT for NOKIA 808 PUREVIEW and NOKIA EOS..they are the Godfathers in camera and build quality of all others phones.. Even the 7yrs old NOKIA N95 8gb has got guts to standup against HTC One and even beat it in many areas...if you don'tbelieve me then go check it out !!!.. I've been using Nokia 808 pureview for about 10 months and the camera quality still blows other phone like iphone 5, bb z10, s4, galaxy camera, and every othetr phone in the world and no company has got the guts and technology to make a phone that can stand up against Godfathers like Nokia 808 pureview ..forget about Nokia EOS , it is even better than 808 p.v. time be careful..
