But still sounds awesome. And possibility of focus up front seems nice. I'm sure if it is 8mp people would be fine with the quality of it left as so.
And of course it will get a Lil worm. It is 8 cores haha.
Right. All phones do.
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2014It was a lie how? ???Because it should (and always has been in the past), measured at the thickest point. This measure ment excludes the lens. At the thickest point it's closer to 26mm (i don't have it any more to measure).

And th... moreRear is a sony camera so is okay. IMO sony cameras (on phones), lend to under saturate. Quality is comparable if not better to the Sony Xperia S.
Front cam quality is okay, but i don't believe it to be true 13mp on the front, more than likely 8mp interpolated to 13mp but never the less it does a better job by far than most of these front facers about (not that I'm a selfie fan but the two shots i've taken have come out pretty good lol). Also the front face seems to have auto focus but this could be software pretending to focus and not really happening (difficult to say as the objects tend to be the same distance on each shot (arm length)).
Processors seem okay. Device gets warm to the touch when under heavy load...but what phone doesn't. Battery life could be a little better though.
I'm on omni but if i recall it is a cyanogen variant that is used as their 'stock' rom.

AnonD-5465, 15 Mar 2014ok time to speak a little Nokia lumia 1020 is yes a great cell phone with a nice camera BU... moreWell said. I am in no way a fan boy of any brand but do hate it when people say the lumia has a better camera than the zoom. It's amazing how many people just get blind folded by their own biase. Oh and i'm no sammy fan either as i'm currently using an interesting THL as an every day phone.
malik raza, 15 Mar 2014in this phone a zoom camera ridiculous thing how can we manage it nokia lumia 1020 is best ha... moreI think you are missing the point. This phone is for people who have a pashion for photography. I had the S4 zoom and it performed well. And i think anyone with half a brain would take optical zoom over software zoom any day (like the high end lumias offer).
I'm just hoping that the S5 zoom with be a touch slimmer as i bought the S4 zoom withouth seeing one in the flesh due to gsmarenas 15.3mm thickness in the specs...which was a lie and the phone was a proper fat boy that couldn't fit in my pockets very well lol. Shame as the camera was good (for a phone), and the specs were okay as well.
[deleted post]This is the S5 Zoom. Samsung's camera/phone hybrid with real camera like function and 10x optical zoom. Though a little less on the beefy spec side for the phone.
When Samsung will release this Galaxy S5 Zoom SM-115, please ???
Does anybody know a release date, please ???
I'm going to buy S4 Zoom but I think it's a bit bulky for me and the chipset of S4 Zoom is old, but the features of this S5 Zoom are so amazing !!!
in this phone a zoom camera ridiculous thing how can we manage it
nokia lumia 1020 is best have 41 mp camera in a very reasonable shape can use friendly also as the mobile nokia is the best from all
iphone and nokia are companies in which every function gives u maximum efficiency and satisfaction but nokia is still up
see comparison of nokia lumia icon and s4 and iphon 5s nokia gave first time amoled and 441 ppi and in this catagory nokia lead every on in display and camera best is best nokia the best in all respects
you mean the Galaxy S5 Zoom Camera will have a phone. who the F buys this huge brick with a camera attached as a phone in their pockets for everyday use? come on...
I'd need 4K video on top of that.... I know that is pushing it and they'd have to use SD800 which they usually don't for their none flagships, but for a camera focused phone it should be there
Anonymous, 14 Mar 2014nokia lumia 1020. which is a lot easier to carry in a bag and pocket aswell as a better pictur... moreok time to speak a little
Nokia lumia 1020 is yes a great cell phone with a nice camera BUT the Zoom series is a Real Camera with inbuilt phone features
Not to forget the amazing video/sound capture a real HD mics with wind cut and all bass/treble you need and YES 10x Optical zoom with stabilization in vidz
its not meant for casual customers who just snap a shot once in awhile its made for a few who needs the both a camera that make calls
S4 Zoom is much superior to the lumia with all Manual control u need from Shutter Speed ranging from 1/2000 up to 16 Seconds Manual Aperature from f/3 to f/18 lens up to 50mm thats a camera we are taking here guys not just a cell phone that gives you a 5MP image and if you zoom before shooting u loose all the oversampling benefits.
You can Zoom with the S4 Zoom Up to 10x Optical and pure 16MP resoltuion for further cropping if u need and dont loose atleast a single portion of quality
you cant put a Camera againest a phone.
See this set
time to upgrade my S4 Zoom can't wait already in love with the Optical Zoom lens and Mighty Xenon luv u Samsung
why do Samsung always dumb down their cameraphones?? Makes no sense of not having S5 specs when they call it "S5 zoom".
