Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom Review

 

Samsung has always had variety when it comes to its phone portfolio. So much so, that it tends to release mini versions of its flagship phones. With the Galaxy S3, we only saw the Galaxy S3 Mini, but with the S4, Samsung announced two mini versions -...

The build quality of the device is very good but at the same time it is hefty. It occupies sufficient space when placed in the pocket. As for the ergonomics, well, the circular lens elements puts you in a dilemma - should you grip the phone with almost...

Notebookcheck's Best of July 2013 ? Smartphone and Tablet Edition

 

A flood of smartphones and drizzling of tablets. Notebookcheck's test lab was in a frenzy this July. The fault rested wholly on the huge number of new smartphones, since not even a handful of tablets came on the market. And, like in May, Samsung sent a...

In May, its big brother modeled how to take the throne. The smaller Samsung Galaxy S4 emulates its sibling and does its job almost as well. And that is enough for this smartphone of the month award

Review Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom Smartphone

 

Compact camera and smartphone in one device. Samsung extends its

High quality main camera; 10x optical zoom; High build quality; Good connectivity; Infrared port; Excellent display; Good performance; Current Android operating system

Retail price; Less compact than usual smartphones; Main camera cannot compete with similarly priced compact cameras

Samsung combines a compact camera and a smartphone in the Galaxy S4; a very innovative product. According to Samsung it is primarily a compact camera but can also be used as a smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom (AT&T)

 

10x zoom lens and dedicated camera controls. Reasonable shutter lag and 3.6fps burst shooting. Good call quality

Images on the noisy side. Bulky and awkward design for a phone. Only midrange CPU and gaming performance

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is an interesting hybrid Android smartphone and camera, but it won't be a practical replacement for both devices for most people.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom review

 

Very cool idea, Only phone with 10x optical zoom, MicroSD card support

Uncomfortable to hold, and bulky, Zoom wheel will annoy you, Weak processing power, Camera zoom doesn’t work with all apps, Photos didn’t look better than iPhone 5S, No full SD support, No external battery charging

There will be a group of people that really like the Galaxy S4 Zoom, cling to it, and defend it rigorously. It will have a cult following. But like the Galaxy Cam, it’s kind of a strange tweener product. It’s too bulky and slow to be a great Android...

Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom

 

With its bulky point-and-shoot camera shape and 10x optical zoom, Samsung's Galaxy S4 Zoom makes for a ridiculously shaped smartphone that defies pocketability. But the mashup device sure can shoot.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom 's advanced controls and preset modes are easy to use. Its top-notch image quality, optical zoom, and a tripod mount make it the most flexible smartphone camera there is. Android 4.2 helps keep the device fresh and connected.

Heavy, thick, and asymmetrical, the camera-shaped Zoom is incredibly awkward and uncomfortable to use as a phone.

Buy the Zoom if you'd like a flexible two-in-one camera/smartphone, no matter the size. But enthusiasts should stick to standalone shooters, and slimmer smartphones -- like the arguably better Nokia Lumia 1020 -- will satisfy most photo needs.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom Review

 

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom has a powerful camera and granular controls for getting the best shot, but its large 10x zoom lens makes this Android smartphone heavy and awkward to hold.

Powerful 10x optical zoom lens; Myriad camera options; Helpful camera tutorials; Bright, vibrant display; Image quality suffers in Auto mode

Slow camera; Not available in U.S.; Heavy; Uncomfortable to hold for long periods; Below average battery life; No LTE

Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom Review

 

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is a smartphone with a rather sizable camera on its back. While you'll find this machine appearing to want o take the place of the Samsung Galaxy Camera , we've found it to be attempting to carve out a different category...

While we've found this device to be taking one of several awards home for most unique device in Samsung's most recent collection of smart devices, it's not necessarily the best device for any one use-case. While we expected the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom...

Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom review: Lights, Camera, Android!

 

Android-powered phone/camera hybrid with 10x zoom lens with OIS, Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE; quad-band 3G with HSPA; LTE, 4.3" 16M-color qHD (540 x 960)Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with Gorilla Glass 3, Android OS v4.2.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz...

Thicker and heavier than a smartphone, Screen not HD, sunlight legibility could have been better, Old chipset, Shared camera interface makes framing tricky, No FM radio

So, a phone or a camera, which is it? The Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom tries to be both, but it does better at one than the other. You should've all figured by now that it's the camera we're talking about. The S4 zoom has all the trimmings of a digicam. It...
