So this could be the fastest phone ever made by Nokia. Zoom..Zoom..Zoom
MobilePowerUser, 14 Jun 2013Why would Nokia put a buggy OS and eventually laggy OS after couple weeks into Lumia? No thanks.I think android 2.1, 2.2 or 2.3 had more bugs. But laggy? biggest joke of the year.
agent bean, 14 Jun 2013..for those who wait for android in lumia, read the story and you will be shocked who's arroga... moreThe article is scarce on details on how Google was arrogant. It's probably just that Elop demanded billions of dollars like they did from Microsoft and Google refused.
I hope that it doesn't have the ugly lens barrel like Galaxy Zoom or its fat body.
I think a 3x or 5x optical zoom will be suffiicent. there are many compact cameras that don't have the ugly lens barrel sticking out for 3x optical zoom
First of all nokia is still the best camera maker and the galaxy s4 zoom is not a proper phone camera it is just a standalone camera with android. It is named the s4 zoom to get publicuty on their bulky "camera" , not a phone.Really! Have u seen the thickness of that plastic camera????????
Nokia has always been the no. 1 camera phonemaker. Remember the N93 from 2006? First with 3.2MP. 2007's N95 had a great 5MP and amazing video camera. N82 had Xenon flash. N86 8MP from 2009 had a awesome camera too. N8 in 2010, with 12MP. In 2012, 808 PureView with the greatest, 41MP. Lumia 920 with OIS and more, 925 and 928 with Xenon and great camera apps, all three best in low light. And now, the 41MP Lumia!

read it why nokia did not have the android...
JBird, 13 Jun 2013Let us see how S4 Zoom will slaughter this toy. I will wait for GSMarena comparison. You Can already go gsmarena camera compare and see it sucks. Zoom can't stand even n8. Sensor is slaughtered by 808 ;)
It's certainly going to be a wild ride, considering Nokia's competition is gearing up for a cameraphone-oriented battle.
Thank you, GSMARENA!
john, 13 Jun 2013Who cares....:) They are almost dead so they can reinvent the zoom ..Hehehe They have to rei... moreAlmost dead? Why criticize WP so much? You may not like the tiles, but WP is practical, simple, intuitive and the most important: does not need an 8-core processor to run. My PC has 8 cores and 8 fans to keep it cool... That's why S4 is overheating everywhere...
jameslong, 14 Jun 2013Hey Nokia, when can you put Android OS into your Lumia? We have been waiting for too long!Why would Nokia put a buggy OS and eventually laggy OS after couple weeks into Lumia? No thanks.
yajia1, 14 Jun 2013Looking forward to the shoot-out between EOS and S4 Zoom. Wonder if 41MP with digital zoom is ... moreIt will be really nothing to see. The verdict is already here. Samsung stands no chance with their crapphone.
JBird, 13 Jun 2013Let us see how S4 Zoom will slaughter this toy. I will wait for GSMarena comparison. Galaxy camera had no chance (in fact was crushed by...) in front of 808 pureview and your dreaming about craplaxy s8*tzuom to destroy eos?:))) You funny. Keep on dreaming, you will soon have a nightmare.
..for those who wait for android in lumia, read the story and you will be shocked who's arrogant...
"The obvious choice would have been to jump on the Android bandwagon. Attracted by Google's free software, every other major smartphone maker except Apple and RIM had already done so, and almost every large carrier was supporting Android as the only genuine Apple alternative. But Google was riding so high that it essentially refused to negotiate, offering no concessions to Nokia despite its global presence. Elop later told the Salo employees that Google "acted like they'd already won. Apple and Android deserve some real competition.""
...that quote changed my impression to google...
sssssssss, 14 Jun 2013it is not necessary for nokia to dominate. what is this obsession with domination?? mobile pho... morejust shut up!
You don't who buy this 41MP.
I know it's your opinion, just watch and see how this Cameraphone can dominate Samsung.
Looking forward to the shoot-out between EOS and S4 Zoom. Wonder if 41MP with digital zoom is better than 16MP with optical zoom. I think Nokia will be better in lowlight though.
[deleted post]Dedicated professional cameras don't have 41mp sensors? Have you seen Hasselblads, Mamiya Leaf, Phase one, or Pentax 645D? Please keep your comments to yourself and get out of your cave from time to time.
