Samsung Galaxy K Zoom


The curious case of the phone-camera crossbreed

Optical zoom is great for photo composition, High customisable software

Screen not pin-sharp, Bulky and heavy, Oversaturated display colours, Poor battery life

Samsung Galaxy K Zoom review


Samsung Galaxy K Zoom is the maker's new phone, packing a 20.7-megapixel camera

Powerful 10x zoom lens ; Comprehensive camera app ; Dazzling xenon flash

Heavy and bulky ; Soft 720p display ; Jerky video

Samsung Galaxy K Zoom review


Samsung makes plenty of quality electronics products and we've been taken by many of its smartphones and cameras over the years. Now it's condensed much of that expertise into one phone-camera (or should that camera-phone?): the Galaxy K Zoom. The...

4G connectivity for fast and direct sharing, Android is a great operating system, full phone with all the apps you’ll need, more slender than S4 Zoom, image quality about on par with equivalent compact

Camera components still make it feel horrible as a phone, mere 8GB internal storage, zoom button placement feels off, some image processing and lens sharpness issues, no aperture/shutter priority modes

The Samsung Galaxy K Zoom feels like an echo of the earlier Galaxy S4 Zoom, albeit with some welcome improvements such as snappy autofocus and a better screen. However our sentiments remain much the same as before: as a smartphone there's a limited...

Samsung Galaxy K Zoom review


A high-end Android phone with a 10x optical zoom camera, the Galaxy K Zoom hopes to send your compact to the scrapheap

Big zoom ; Excellent camera for a phone ; Good build and general specs

Very bulky ; Not ideal ergonomics for a camera

The best camera you'll find on a phone, but the extra bulk is a hefty trade-off

Samsung Galaxy K Zoom review


Samsung's shot at the ultimate cameraphone is off the mark

10x optical zoom ; Decent battery life ; Powerful innards

Feels overpriced ; Extra size and weight ; Low-res screen

Ratings in depth We know that the smartphone has eaten the compact camera's lunch, but Samsung thinks it still has one or two tricks up its capacious sleeves before the plates and cutlery are finally cleared away.

Samsung Galaxy K Zoom: a compact zoom camera with a built-in Android smartphone


The concept of bolting a huge zoom lens to the back of a smartphone isn't new. Samsung has already had a couple of tries and must be hoping it's third time lucky with the Galaxy K Zoom.

Samsung Galaxy K Zoom review


The concept of bolting a huge zoom lens to the back of a smartphone isn't new. In fact, Samsung has already tried a couple of times in the past with the Galaxy Camera and Galaxy S4 Zoom. Both were bad products and were arguably the worst of both worlds...

By no means the perfect combination of a smartphone and zoom lens, the K Zoom isn’t half bad. It’s capable of great photos and videos in the right conditions.This isn’t a device for everyone, but if the “zoom camera with a built-in smartphone” concept...

Samsung Galaxy K Zoom is half phone, half camera, not brilliant at either


Samsung's new cameraphone packs a 10x optical zoom lens, a 20-megapixel sensor and Android KitKat into a chunky body.

The Samsung Galaxy K Zoom's impressive 10x optical zoom gets you up close with your subject without losing image quality. It has plenty of power for most tasks and it has the latest Android software too.

It's bulky and heavy, making it awkward for everyday use, while its overall image quality doesn't particularly impress and it has a disappointingly low resolution display.

If you absolutely must have a phone with an optical zoom, the K Zoom is basically your only option. It's bulky though, and the pictures it takes aren't any better than the Galaxy S5's. You'll be far better off with a cheap Android phone and a decent...
