Hi,I'm from Indonesia. My Name is Chris. I recently do some gadget testing (with own budget)
I really love photography and this S4 Zoom got my attention for a while. Last time before this one, I use Galaxy Camera.
The are few differences in comparison.
Galaxy Cam VS S4 Zoom:
Zoom: 21x vs 10x (but still very bad in 21x zoom)
Body: Heavy (steel) vs Light (plastic)
Screen: LCD vs LED
Phone: NA vs Avail
Processor: QdCore 1.4 vs DlCore 1.5
Ram: 1G vs 1.5G
This is what I know but some lack of it is:
-U can't use lightning when recording a video
-Battery quickly Drown
-Photo result never been good @ computer view (only good at device)
This is some of my shared and for those who said the other better or other are worse, none of them can be compared. Dif phone got dif function and got it's own + and -.
Want a good cam,use slr. Want a good smartphone, never tought about the camera.
This kind of smartphone was created for those who love photography and want an android smartphone in 1 gadget.
None of them perfect.
Want to discuss, can add my bb 2afbad04 or +6281288001121 for whatsapp.
Nice to share ^_^

as usual root it ! camera is much better than any other phones i used.cons are however no video light for low light filming which i had on my ol sgs2.as a whole the phone experience is good
My phone time is working too slow infact its 10 times slower than other normal time can anybody help me to get is reslove ?

COMPAIRED WITH :-
# if u go with LUMIA-1020,920,925,929,1320,1520 is
they are cheaper and has good camera but becarefull
with a windows phone it has less apps compaired with
a ANDROID phone
# if u go with 808 pureview ,gud luck it is a symbian
# if u have lots of waste money buy :-
because these all are very very very very costly
SO ITS UP TO U
Lumia 1020 price is crashing down quickly reason being one million limitations of windows 8 software. A very few will spend so much for a pride of having a great camera in a smartphone which is dumb by todays standards. Look at Lumia 920. Don't forget S4 zoom has 10X optical zoom and Android 4.2.2 OS which is much better than Windows 8 OS. I have not seen a Samsung Android phone being slashed in price by almost half. But Lumia phones a being slaughtered every week in price terms. If you are so happy with Lumia 1020 than get ready to be equally disappointed when you will find due to bad sales Nokia slashing 1020 price just like 920. Have a nice day Lumia 1020 user.
good camera also internet speed also stunning and picture quality also good as a phone littile limitations like heavy shape but its really amazing don't compare with nokia 1020 nokia is showing more complanis in software side..
