Who will want this Frankenphone when there's a sleeker looking 1020? and it does better job as well than this POS.
i have bought it in the last week it is working fine it has met all the expectation of mine in all aspects like camera and as smart phone yes battery back up is little bit poor,
Hail Nokia Lumia 1020! This s4 zoom shouldn't be compared to 1020 and 808. Throw your Samsung!
firstname.lastname@example.org, 22 Jul 2013I want to ask a question to buy this phone.
can anyone install the Torch (flashlight) soft... moreThanks for pointing out it has no LED flash am starting to change my mind.
The xenon flash contains a red autofocus light that illuminates in darkeness to assisst autofocus i dont know if you can make it light up like Sony Ericsson K800i did.
SM, 21 Jul 2013I am a photography freak and i like android OS so i bought this phone.. Wait it's not a phone ... morei am fully agree with your opinion, but i want to say that 1020 is not even close to the 808 in daylight pictures. 1020 beats 808 only in night.
We need regular mobile with super camera..We do not need a camera with phone functionality.e.g no one can say that Nokia 808 is camera..but everyone can say galaxy zoom is a camera not a phone. Foolish people can never understand this.
Please update. I don't buy my phones regularly so normally just buy top of the range on desired brand. Was thinking galaxy s4, excited about life companion and s health.
Does this option have all those options readily available as basic? Or should I just buy the galaxy s4 just need phone for basics but top of range. Am not a camera man
I want to ask a question to buy this phone.
can anyone install the Torch (flashlight) software and try it?
if it have only xenon flash, its not work.. in that case there is not include LED flash.
my friend said, "xenon flash has a led flash. because When we do autofocus, LED flash work.not xenon "
First Of All as per price this phone is not worth.I bought this phone but never find any good feel for this .I was using i5 , I sold it to buy this ..But I miss it really I dont like Samsung. Man samsung quality no good. If you want to buy any smart phone better go for cheap option. there are so many vailable in the market.
I am a photography freak and i like android OS so i bought this phone.. Wait it's not a phone it's a camera. Picture quality without full zoom is good but they look like oversaturated in the screen and even in my HDTV, i didn't find it natural. There aren't many pro like settings in the camera and the xenon range is 3.5m. Low light photography isn't that bad but due to the flash shadows can appear and noise is noticiable even in ISO 100. Optical image stablization works like a charm in videos and pictures but when zooming in it also records the sound of zoom. HDR works fine. Panaroma doesn't do its job well, pictures gets blurry. Switch on time is slow and so is taking a picture with flash. The camera struggles to focus in night and it's very dissappointing. The optical zoom is limited to 10X only. It's easy to keep this device in trousers pocket. Macro shot is very poor. There's no special features in the camera menu. For casual photography the pictures are acceptable. The cameraphone heats up a lot and battery life is not very good due to resource hungry OS Android. After a full charge, you will be able to take 150-160 pictures. I'm not very impressed with the pictures, it kinda looks unreal. Even the years old Nokia 808 takes better pictures but lack optical image stablization and macro shots. Nokia 808 still is the best cameraphone after Nokia Lumia 1020. I suggest you all to avoid this device and get yourself a Nokia 808 or a Lumia 1020 if you're looking for DSLR like picture quality in mobile phone. Thanks.
Is the glass stronger than the one of s3 ? my s3 glass fell from me and its damn expensive. samsung should improve on the screen. Its too flexible and expensive. The QUESTION IS , WHY IS SAMSUNG GALAXY S3 SCREEN SO EXPENSIVE ?
Can you (if any owns or tested the phone) please tell me if the 1080p recording for a long time makes over heating?
Avi, 19 Jul 2013It states clearly that the phone has an FM radioI'm really confused. There are some tech sites says the radio is available (like this).. . and other tech site says radio is not exist.(official samsung site)
also I want to know ...Is xenon flash include Led flash ?I want to use as a flashlight (torch)
you know, xenon flash is not permanently turn on.. but led flash is always opening
MdN, 17 Jul 2013Yes, it looks great and brought back some memories. Waiting for more specs and availability. S... moreCertainly remember it, a podcast I listen too we were all constantly on look out to see if it got launched in UK or Europe.The podcast I listen too the chap does a video show too and reviewed Zoom,he is a xenon flash nut..
