As I just stated in the Galaxy Beam page.
Samsung should combine the Note, S, Beam, and Zoom into one monster!
Sorry Samsung this is too ugly for a camera, phone is not an appropriate word for this.

Obviously the 1020 has an advantage of having many more pixels and size.
However actual optics wise there is way more to the story and the Zoom holds some good ground.
Android Man, 23 Apr 2014question why would i take a Samsung mobile to a HTC service centre.Question.
Where from the original comment or their reply to it was that even implied?
Anonymous, 23 Apr 2014well, based on experience, the so-called "best quality" might cost you regular trip ... moreExactly. Something people don't like to hear or admit.
While HTC is definitely improving I think....They are most known for their faulty hardware issues way more than Samsung or some others.
I.scorp, 23 Apr 2014for sure htc has had best body quality,even better than nokia.and in my experiences if Samsung... moreYou liking metal better does not mean it's the best buid quality.
And I'd love to know how ugly scratches and dents are better?

Except the optical zoom, this camera with calling functionality is having a sensor size of 1/2.3" which is 3 times less than the sensor size present in Lumia 1020, so in terms of details, the Lumia 1020 would come out as a winner, it is guaranteed and as this camera phone isn't having an intense LED light, it'd be harder to focus in low light with low ISO set. I like that Samsung has managed to retain the 10x zoom lens without the lens bulging out and it looks quite slimmer and less bulkier than the S4 Zoom.
Hope it comes in at a sensible price quite fancy this..A bit of proper camera stuff like Nokias N-Series used to be feels good.
strange, cause this phone looks small (not counting thickness)for a 4.8' phone. gs3 for example looks much bigger in the hand
lets wait and see
i've got the s4 zoom and besides the heavy weight and ackward style, everything works perfect and smoothly.
i am just missing the kit kat update so far
at least with the outside lenses the chance of dropping it is really reduced.
i am really looking forward s5 zoom to upgrade mine soon

That one won my heart .. Hope to release the black color on launch. Its a real camera in the lumia1020 body design. But with a real 10x optical zoom than the 41mpx crop gimmick

I dropped my HTC one making it roll on the road while I was driving a decent pace on my bike. HTC One survived with only a few scratched on the edges.
That in my opinion is called good build quality.
