i already tested this device. To all rookie photographer lovers, it is worth it when you bought this device. Those who don't have DSLRs can bought this device if you want take quality pictures. This device also suitable to those who addict with social apps eg. Whatsapp, Wechat, Instagram and many more.

Hi.. I purchased this cameraphone phone on 22nd of August for 28,500 rupees in India.
It's not easy to carry, and certainly not ergonomic to hold on and use without an issue. I put it in my jeans pocket last night and the camera automatically got started, thankfully i immediately took it out. Calling with it is a bit awkward, everyone thinks it's a camera on first sight. TouchWiz, as we all know is a buggy UI which causes it to lag on basic applications such as contact, gallery, dialer and in the camera application and lag terribly when many applications are loaded. Battery backup is good in normal usage but i don't get much battery backup when using it heavily. On full charge, i was able to take 210 pictures until the battery went 1 % which isn't too good. Well, Android OS is a resource and data guzzling OS so i understand why battery backup is shit. Camera take good pictures in good outside conditions, though distortions are much likely to happen in daylight. One thing i noticed about the pics taken with this camera is the red color really doesn't look red, it looks orange. See it yourself, take a picture of a tomato. On full optical zoom, pictures come out as little noisy, especially when it's evening. In artificial light, the camera performs good without flash but when taking a picture with flash in artificial light, the flash response time doesn't match that of the shutter speed, resulting in a little grainy and over saturated picture. Low light photography, only close up are good but the camera struggle to focus. Video recording is good but what i don't like about the camera is it records audio but the audio when played doesn't sound real or stereo. Video recording in low light is a pain because it doesn't have a led flash. The phone heats up a lot especially if you are continously using it for taking picture or playing your favorite game. Zooming when video recording is good but the cracking sound also gets captured which may be totally make your professional recording a pain. The back cover feels cheap and gets fingerprints a lot. Camera response times are slow. This is my first review. Hope it helps someone.

Please don't buy this. I bought it for 28k in India and am very disappointed with this phone.
1. It feels cheap and very bulky to carry around.
2. Picture quality is very bad. Colors don't look accurate, espcially the red color on pictures taken with camera.
3. Camera doesn't open quick and often hangs.
4. At full zoom, pictures get grainy with too much noise.
5. It lags, heats up and battery drains very fast.
6. All in all, a waste of money. I'm not happy with picture quality. Please don't buy it. Go for Nikon or Canon cameras or Nokia 808.
