WHAT: It’s a phone. It’s a camera. It’s the new Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom. This is What Happens When Your Phone and Camera Get Married.
I don’t own one and have not personally used a Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom. Just want to share what’s out there in the market. Although some people think that the design is ugly, I personally find it sleek. I own an iPhone and I have to say that Apple should come up with something better than this. This Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom just looks too attractive at first impression.
KNOWN PROS AND CONS:
PROS: Decent camera, good battery life, plays games well. Perfect for people who want a better camera than a phone in the body of a smartphone.
CONS: Large and heavy (but “pocketable), only 8GB of storage (but with MicroSD it can store up to 64GB), If your current smartphone has a 5-inch or larger touchscreen, the display of this device is just 4.3 inches. Although this is a great phone and camera, it is still not intended to replace a professional camera.
