Samsung combines its smartphone and camera divisions

Samsung strategy: copy apple until we beat them, THEN innovate (donlesnt matter if the new features are useless), THEN copy Nokia until we beat them in cameras... Then innovate with useless camera features like pausing the video recording when the videographer blinks
yeah hate people, not trolling it was just funny in my head.

Copy apple? Did you ever used a samsung phone? I owned iphone 4s and now own s4... I am still unable to see any copy thing... there are some obvious features which every phone has.. apple is just a ridiculous company and american courts are also ridiculous, dont just get brain washed by icourt decisions... US courts only make unbiased decisions when it is US vs US not US vs non- US...
Copy nokia?????? do nokia has anything to copy??

Sammy recently lost against Apple at the *Korean* court.
Never noticed what Sammy copied? How do you zoom in and out?

If You're reffering to either pinch to zoom or double tap, both of them are standard google features. I have yet to hear of any other method for zooming besides using the accelerometer, which is a Chrome feature.

This worked out great for Sony as the Z1 has shown. Now that their restructuring is done and they're free from former contract obligations they have delivered. For Samsung, this could work out really well too. Let's face the facts, no one really buys a stand alone camera any more because smart phone cameras have come so far. It is only logical to focus greater attention on that instead of on a dying industry or consumer level cameras.

I agree, but probably it takes more time that what we have seen... the Z1 was an experiment of this merging in my opinion...
Here's to hoping for better results from these type of merges

This is just a good logic move on their business model. This merging of two divisions has nothing to do with imitating anyone. Consumers are demanding more from their Smart devices today for the amount of money they are shelling out. The so call "One trick Pony" will no longer due.
Nokia hit it out of the park with Camera tech, Motorola hit it out of the park with Battery life, HTC hit it out of the park with design and Sense 5.0( my opinion), Samsung hit it out of the park with Display tech and size. Now imagine all of these technologies in one device?
Well Samsung decided it is not waiting.Samsung has a very decent Camera division and a awesome display division so why not combine them to not only save cost but to also produce a device that benefits form the integration of these departments. Just plain business sense.

The Samsung cameras sorely need improving. My experience with them has been uninteresting. I doubt merging these two divisions will have any benefit for the smartphones unless Samsung somehow finds ways to significantly improve their imaging. Especially with the zooming features.
