It is a little big for smartphones! phablets do not need it ! i.e note 3 has a very good camera! tablets can have this! but except people who take pictures of a live show with their tablets ahem* Ipads* ahem who needs such a big attachment on his device?!

the real power of this camera is optical zoom and bigger sensor than average smartphone.
This camera has bigger sensor and better zoom than your note 3.

yes better zoom and better sensor ! but it is too big to carry with your device! If you want a good shot get a DSLR !

But then a DSLR is too big comparing to this camera. Carrying a DSLR around is much more annoying than carrying this box looking camera around.
Oh. Don't forget about the cost.

I guess with the dimensions of 52.5 x 45 x 26 mm and weighs 65 grams, this camera is not too big to carry.
Even your Note 3 is bigger and heavier compared to this camera.
Can you show where I can buy dslr at a price of $100 and the with the same size???
I just bought the Sony A7, but for day-to-day activities I prefer to use the RX100 because of its smaller size and quite capable of producing images and video with excellent quality.
And I don't have a problem when carrying it, despite its larger size and heavier in comparison to this camera.

This is perfect for tablets which are notorious for having sub-par cameras. If my tablet camera wasn't so bad I'd probably ditch having a smartphone all together.
