It's n... moreDear Samsungboy,
Thanks a lot for your review.
I was about to buy the phone, but now I think it's better to void this deal...
It's better to buy a good camera in stead and to continue enjoying my 4s iPhone.
I think there a typo error in the description here in gsm arena, according to the description there is fm radio. but according to the s4 zoom review here and other website there is no fm radio. please correct the description here in your website.
In review you have stated that it doesnt have FM radio while in the specification you wrote that it does. Which one is true?
Does the games play on this phone ?like temple run / subway surfers and etc...
Bulls crap. Price should be at least 100 euro more because of the lens. Phones easily drop so much easier to break it and lost your camera too. It is also bulky.
Or if you want to change your mobile i a couple of years you have to buy a new camera too. If also since its a smart phone freezes etc and needs to be restarted then it will take lots of time so you miss the moment
i already tested this device. To all rookie photographer lovers, it is worth it when you bought this device. Those who don't have DSLRs can bought this device if you want take quality pictures. This device also suitable to those who addict with social apps eg. Whatsapp, Wechat, Instagram and many more.

It's not easy to carry, and certainly not ergonomic to hold on and use without an issue. I put it in my jeans pocket last night and the camera automatically got started, thankfully i immediately took it out. Calling with it is a bit awkward, everyone thinks it's a camera on first sight. TouchWiz, as we all know is a buggy UI which causes it to lag on basic applications such as contact, gallery, dialer and in the camera application and lag terribly when many applications are loaded. Battery backup is good in normal usage but i don't get much battery backup when using it heavily. On full charge, i was able to take 210 pictures until the battery went 1 % which isn't too good. Well, Android OS is a resource and data guzzling OS so i understand why battery backup is shit. Camera take good pictures in good outside conditions, though distortions are much likely to happen in daylight. One thing i noticed about the pics taken with this camera is the red color really doesn't look red, it looks orange. See it yourself, take a picture of a tomato. On full optical zoom, pictures come out as little noisy, especially when it's evening. In artificial light, the camera performs good without flash but when taking a picture with flash in artificial light, the flash response time doesn't match that of the shutter speed, resulting in a little grainy and over saturated picture. Low light photography, only close up are good but the camera struggle to focus. Video recording is good but what i don't like about the camera is it records audio but the audio when played doesn't sound real or stereo. Video recording in low light is a pain because it doesn't have a led flash. The phone heats up a lot especially if you are continously using it for taking picture or playing your favorite game. Zooming when video recording is good but the cracking sound also gets captured which may be totally make your professional recording a pain. The back cover feels cheap and gets fingerprints a lot. Camera response times are slow. This is my first review. Hope it helps someone.
better to announce this samsung camera...by this phone samsung are changing the face of mobile phones..its not good..better to turn into inventing new cameras..
I just bought s4 zoom last week...I'm amazed by the camera but its a bit heavy and now I wanted to change it to s4 :)
