balpol, 11 Jun 2014Nice phone but screen display is not 1080p ¬ water proof optical zoom is not 21xYour comments are unreasonable. Firstly the display doesn't need to be more than 720p with that screen size, it looks really sharp trust me. The screen size is also ideal for a camera/phone combo. Any bigger and it becomes unwieldy. Also the camera isn't waterproof, how could it be with all the mechanical parts. It's not an underwater shooter. Finally 10x Zoom is about the maximum without creating an enormous phone with a bulky body. Also it has kept the cost down. I think it's perfect.
I don't want to pinch display for zooming because at long focus i will then heavyly shake picture.
I don't want to zoom with volume buttons since when using something to stabilize it will often push button and make unwanted zooming.
It was perfectly solved in the S4 zoom with the ring around objective giving me a feel of systemcamera usage.
I want to be sure i dont drop camera. Espesially when zooming.
It was solved perfectly in S4zoom with the thicker side giving a perfect grip slightly hanging in my fingers.
So, why on earth have they removed the major two things making the device practical and useful and making me wanna buy a GalaxyZoom:
the focus ring,
and the grip ?????
The device is a masterpiece. it hits Nigeria next week.
can't wait to get my hands on it.
Nice phone but screen display is not 1080p ¬ water proof optical zoom is not 21x
I see this phone in you tube add.I am very wondered to see the specification about this. I amazed to see a camera like this. Software version and ram power is also awesome. The camera is 20.7 megapixels , 10x zoom hd camera. I like it , I searched a phone like this. I am eagerly waiting to buy this. But I didn't know when it is being launched on Indian market. I am very eager to see this.
Its coming to egypt in a week. A great device for people interested in photography and simple smartphone operations as browsing facebook twitter.
Today again I have enquired about this product with samsung customer care India. They have neither heard about this product nor do they believe this product will ever be released in India.
got mine today and for these few hours i am more than satisfied. works great, not big at all, easily stays in a pocket..
Battery life is incredible! 700 photos taken on a full battery and still 10% available!
GSM kindly do a review on this cell.
want to buy one.
So, I got the Galaxy K Zoom on launch day and my first impressions are WOW! It has far exceeded my expectations in many ways.
The build quality is really good, it feels solid and it looks really nice (I have the black one). I thought the screen might be sub standard being only 720p but it really is sharp and bright and although super AMOLED the colours are not saturated at all. They have got the balance right in my opinion and the size is right too. It doesn't feel particularly bulky or heavy and the casing is grippy.
I didn't have a lot of time but I did a quick comparison test with photographs taken from it in the same spot with my Galaxy S4 Zoom and the Galaxy Camera. I have to say the shots on the K Zoom at 10x optical were on a par with the Galaxy Camera and better than the S4 Zoom. I also tried 20x zoom that's 10 optical +10x digital and the results were far better than I expected, actually they were great. Low light level shots came out better than the Galaxy Camera as did the video recording.
There are tons of scene modes and not forgetting the excellent AF/AE mode – This lets you choose separate parts of the picture to act as exposure metering and focus points. The only thing missing oddly enough is the tilt shift (or selective focus) as seen on the S5, I am not sure why that wasn't included. I also thought there was mean't to be an LED flash in addition to the Xenon, for video use but that's missing and there's no notification LED. But no great loss.
But overall, it a massive improvement over the S4 Zoom and it's definitely good enough to replace my Galaxy Camera. It's pocketable, has full mobile phone function, better screen, battery life, interface and Android Kit-Kat on board. Missing only a tripod mount (I bought a smartphone tripod mount accessory to solve this) and that extra 10x zoom if we're talking Galaxy Camera comparison.
I have only been using it for a day but I am bowled over. I have no regrets replacing the Galaxy Camera with this baby.
Does anybody have got this K ZOOM?
I would like know your opinion because GSMARENA reject publish any news about this phone.
It's an amazing zome on the phone. On full zoom it offers clarity like never seen before. I'm impressed with its ability, although it's rather heavy.
