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.

It's dual core A9 processor, not A15.

Hey guys, the embedded youtube videos are coming up as private so they're unviewable from here. As for the S4 Zoom, i think it'll make a good addition to my 808. Its good to see another manufacturer taking phone photography seriously at last.

Looking at the pictures, i think there is great potential in this. but it sure needs some adjustment, as it seems like there is a lot of Chromatic Aberrations and Blue Fringing on the left side of high contrast areas. eg. look at the dinosaurs head?.. there is like several pixels of blue just next to it. Also on the left side of the flower, in the flower shoot. If they can fix this, the pictures might come out very good.

but still, the device is a little to bulky, and i can't see myself using this a my daily driver.

It's like I'm reading new GALAXY Camera review, not a smartphone. Because SGA4 Zoom is heavy and extremely thick. Nobody wants to hold this really Big Thing while phone call. Almost like use your tablet to answer :D

Your first reaction was "it's smaller!"???

How about "It's huge and looks ridiculous!"??

Depending on the price, it looks cute as a camera but I cant imagine it using as a smartphone. Theres a lot of things missing on connectivity. No Nfc, no tv link, no HDMI. It would be incredible is sammy made the phone detachable from the camera, like the padfone to its tablet.
