Samsung Galaxy K zoom available to buy in the US for $450 (via eBay)
While Samsung’s Galaxy K zoom hasn’t been officially released in the US yet, customers wanting to buy this smartphone-camera hybrid can already do so. Thanks to eBay’s Daily Deals, the device can be currently bought for just $449.99. However, we must note that this Galaxy K zoom that’s sold via eBay doesn’t have LTE, and is compatible only with AT&T’s 3G network.

Amazon lets you order a similar Galaxy K zoom (meaning with AT&T 3G, but without LTE), although it asks a higher price for it: $529.72.

If the absence of LTE doesn’t bother you, buying a Galaxy K zoom for $449.99 may be a good deal. The device runs Android 4.4, and comes with a 20.7MP rear camera that features 16x optical zoom, OIS, and Xenon and LED flashes. You’re also getting all the features of a decent mid-range smartphone, including: a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display with 720 x 1,280 pixels, a 6-core Exynos 5 Hexa processor, 2GB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable internal memory. One of the downsides of the K zoom is that it's quite bulky, measuring 5.41 x 2.79 x 0.65 inches (137.5 x 70.8 x 16.6 mm), and weighing 7 ounces (200 grams). If that doesn't scare you, you can order the device at either of the two source links below.

How is the call quality? A friend of mine is interested in this. Call and take pictures are what she literally do everyday.

A fair review and comparison between the older model and the K Zoom

I can't believe that this phone is actually cheaper than the garbage S5 mini

I just paid $600 for one. Came all the way from Hong Kong. Wish I would have had the patience to wait. Other than that, no regrets purchasing this phone. Best camera experience I've had since the 1020. There's also a full manual mode along with 20 others to choose from In full manual you can set exposure times as long as you'd like, meaning you can use this for night photography. No other phone can do that. Even the 1020 had a limited shutter/exposure time. This one goes up to 16 seconds.
