Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom

 

Is the S4 Zoom the final blow against the traditional compact camera?

An excellent camera with 10x zoom, Useful camera scene modes, Comes with Android 4.2.2

Low res screen, Bulky design, Slight lag in performance

Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom review

 

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom packs a 16MP camera and 10x optical zoom

Spectacular 10x zoom ; Big screen - great for images ; Excellent 16MP camera sensor

Bulky profile ; Average battery life ; Unexceptional processor

Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom review

 

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is a phone… Or is it a camera? It's somewhere between both - a Galaxy S4 mini-alike with a 10x optical zoom compact camera strapped to its rear. Conceptually that's brilliant for snapping shots a step above many a standard...

Responsive camera, physical controls make for ease of camera use, microSD card slot for expansion, Android OS is snappy, perfect for sharing shots on the go, optical image stabilisation works well, better screen resolution than a compact camera

Physical camera controls make it horrible to hold as a phone, shiny plastic exterior build, autofocus at 10x can be hit and miss, has lost sight that it should be a phone first and foremost, limited screen resolution

As a phone the S4 Zoom has us equally as charmed as the S4 Mini - it's snappy, great to use, has plenty enough power and is a decent size. As a camera the S4 Zoom performs like a reasonable 16MP, 10x optical zoom compact camera too. Married together...

Shortly after Samsung released the Android-powered Galaxy Camera, it revealed that it had more plans for snappers featuring Google's operating system.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom review

 

Is it a phone? Is it a camera? Do you care?

Great smartphone camera ; Good battery life ; Decent web browsing ; Great media players

Expensive for mid-range ; Only 8GB built in storage ; Occasionally sluggish ; Average screen

We really want to like the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom. If the camera or phone part was better or the price tag was lower then it would make sense, but it's a poor compact and a mid-range phone with a high end price tag.

Video: Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom review - Android phone, superzoom camera - a truly niche device

 

As you might expect with Samsung there are a lot of software extras for the camera. This includes 25 different scene modes. And with manual mode you're able to tune individual settings such as shutter speed and aperture.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom review

 

Smartphone cameras are now so good you may never again need to purchase a standalone compact point and shoot camera. The Galaxy S4 Zoom takes that argument even further: a 16Mp camera with a 10x optical zoom grafted on to the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini,...

It's almost impossible to score the Galaxy S4 Zoom. It is such a niche product. £400 buys you either not much phone or a lot of camera. Actually, it buys you both. But whether that makes it a good deal depends on your needs: do you want a superzoom...
