Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 review

 

Samsung's latest Android-powered camera packs in lots of versatility and sharing options, and a 21x optical zoom. But the camera sensor doesn't deliver significantly better results than what you'll get from a good smartphone.

For those looking for a versatile camera that will let you edit images and share them without ever having to move images to a separate device, Samsung’s Galaxy Camera 2 is a decent option without a whole lot of direct competition. Nikon’s Coolpix S800c...

Samsung Galaxy Camera 2

 

The Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 has a huge display and runs Android, but its image quality lags behind others in its class.

Huge 4.8-inch display. Runs Instagram and other Android apps. 21x zoom lens. Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth support.

Images on the soft side. Detail suffers as ISO is increased. Uses older Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS. No 4G version available. Omits traditional controls. Pricey.

As you'd expect, the Galaxy includes integrated Wi-Fi with NFC support. It's easy enough to connect to a Wi-Fi network, and you can browse the Web, post images to Facebook and Instagram, tweet to your heart's content, and do anything else you'd...

Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 White

 

Of course, what makes a good sequel is open for argument. For the Galaxy Camera 2, Samsung went with basically the same main characters -- a 21x-zoom wide-angle lens, 16-megapixel backside-illuminated sensor, and a giant 4.8-inch HD touch screen -- put...

As connected cameras go, the Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 is an example of one done well. Having Android 4.3, dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi with NFC, powerful processing, and a big, beautiful touch screen makes for a very good shoot-and-share experience.

At $450, the photo quality and shooting performance might disappoint those looking for significantly better results than a high-end smartphone.

The Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 delivers the app and connectivity options of your smartphone, but with the shooting flexibility of a long zoom lens.

The Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 is a new version of last year's Galaxy Camera hybrid camera / smartphone, additionally offering a faster 1.6GHz Quad Core processor, 2.0 GB of RAM, enhanced battery life, Android 4.3 Jellybean and NFC connectivity. The...

The Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 feels more like a silent revision of an existing product, rather than an exciting new replacement, such is the lack of change since last year's original Galaxy Camera was released. We'd be hard pushed to think of another...
