this camera is good combination camera & phn features. but it is not excellent. it is too heavy and large to carry with. even there is no voice call option & camera is only 16 mp(24 mp desired).
damm this is new generation of digital camera! i bought it for 600 dollar .. i fall in love with her ..oh my camera ..
Tested with apps LINE, its work. Viber and whatsapp cannot install as its doesn't compatible with the device..
this is not a phone. this is a 'camera' with a phone specification. this camera specially made for people who like to share photos quickly without transfer it to other devices with a better quality photos.
gr....8 device. this is a digital camera with everything. i can listen to music. can use web thru this camera. can take pics and can upload it. its really fast. video recording is superb. only problem is that it has no voice call. but ok i m having gs3 for this purpose. camera is very clear. i sold n8 and pureview for this camera. and what i feel is it was worth. really worth. i took pureview for camera but i must say no to pureview. uploading of any pic to fb is very slow. symbian is boring and much much much inferior than android in all the ways and i even did not like the camera of pureview. only thing i loved in pureview was video recording. right now i m having gs3 and this camera and they both are mighty things for me. android is best. and will remain best in future too.
need call option mr. samsung!!! ..don't judge the book when you don't have the (cover) or this samsung g.cam.. ..don't rely on just reviews of others.. for me its worth it..
fsdf, 14 Dec 2012if u want to cal buy mobile S3no!! s3 is wrong option. coz it's camera is very ordinary against galaxy camera n pureview. pureview can call n massage with camera power like Samsung galaxy camera.
Sad not to make calls with it...maybe next time Samsung think on it...if I want a camera I would buy a Nikon ..not this...
I usually hate samsung phones,but this one is simply ,,one of the BEST"!
hey...its a nice cam as well as a nice phone too but we cant make call...but its jellibeen os nd 4.8" screen is very much usefull for internet nd other phone activitees...
Just had my hands on it. I was able to buy it for Php20200. Overall, the quality of the images it produce rivals the Pureview. It excels in zoomed-in shots and is better than any Sony camera phones in lowlight conditions.
Gaming and everything else is as good as when using other android device of the same spec. Its a bit hard to hold though cause of the camera protrusion.
It can be used for texting via 3G but has no firmware to support phone calls. I was able to pair mine with Gmate and calling works fine. The only drawback, if you decide to receive a call using it when your in a crowd, EVERYONE WILL STARE AT YOU WITH DOUBTFUL EYES.
I love it.
GroundBlended, 13 Dec 2012hi lenscape,
from my understanding, its an android camera. may be there is no function for ... morethe most questions we asked, can camera making a call. YES
i tested it, i can send and receive a text SMS under my sim (under my phone number)but could not make or receive call.
Camera can make or receive call via voip, i installed fongo app and it does everything with new number (number from fongo) for free. you need data or wifi
Lenscape, 12 Dec 2012Pls watch the official ad. You can make video calls using this. Specs also mention talktime ho... morehi lenscape,
from my understanding, its an android camera. may be there is no function for sms or call but we can install it. same goes to video call. we can use third party applications. like u said by using skype or vibe or yahoo messenger.
