The Samsung Galaxy K Zoom is the ultimate camera phone, and here's why

0. phoneArena 20 Aug 2014, 07:33 posted on

The Galaxy K zoom is the ultimate camera-specialized device, offering consumers a new kind of experience that they will not find on any other smartphone today. Sporting a 20.7MP camera and 10x Optical Zoom, the Galaxy K zoom far surpasses the industry standard 16MP smartphone camera. In fact, it is directly competing with many of the more advanced standalone digital cameras on the market today...

Paying for an Advertisement to look like a review Says something about your product...

But see here's the thing: The K Zoom can actually back up this claim as it's been proven to be one of the best camera phones on the market today.

Yes, it's one of the best. I personally also like it but I want a dual SIM variant of this, I hope someday Sammy will make it.

And that chic is really very hot. :)

The keywords are "one of"...

And it's STILL pathetic to pay for an article-lookalike advertisement!

One of the best yes, however only in optical zoom, without it, other camera's have proven to outdo the shooting device. One being the 1020 and 808. Of course anything with an optical zoom will win in zoom vs digital.

But in terms of performance, the 808 and 1020 especially in low light have seen to be better.

Lets also not forget the 1020 advantage of the RAW format

2 centimeters is by no means thin, even for a camera. Sony (and probably everyone, i just specifically remember theirs when they came out) has been doing pretty thin cameras for years now. it just reads a little ridiculous.

To be honest I prefer this kind of ad to those pop-up windows, site-scattering banners and most of that pesky stuff. Keep in mind that you don't pay a dime for quite a good piece of journalism here and they need to pay their Netflix and takeaway pizza bills too, so since PA reviews phones, I think it's not a bad thing for them to earn on this very thing instead of adding another banner.
And turn off your AdBlock for this site, if most of us had done that, they wouldn't have needed to use AdBlock-resistant advertisement.
And since we are trolling downhere already, I'd like to add that iPhone is the best and all Android and Windows phones' are blatant ripoffs. Thank you.

No one forced you to click on the article. Just take a second and let that soak in.

It wasn't presented as an advertisement; I hope PA gets s**tloads of $, 'cause it seriously detracts from their prestige!

When you put a 'here's why' in the title, you dont expect an ad or something similar, you expect a comparo of a few pics from other leading cameraphones like the 808, 1020, s5

Actually, just watching the photos in gsmarena, you can see that the photos are inferior in every way compared to S5, S5 Alpha, Z2 and so. Only thing that it has is the zoom zoom. Like Mazda zoom zoom you know? heh Ok also it has the 4:3 ratio which the S5 doesn't have

Yep zoom is the only reason you'll buy this instead of flagship.

Phone Arena has sold its soul again.

Advertising is not the same thing as soul selling.

If you have problem with such posts then start donating to the site rather the b*tching when they're only trying to earn for their authors and admin cost for the site....smh

Technically, advertising is soul selling.

Lol.....no its just a business model.

Almost all the website display advertisement in their site somewhere. So by your logic, have all of them sold their souls too ?

Yes. They sold their soul to their capitalistic overlords for a specific number days, months or years. XD

Advertising is fine; presenting it as an article is low...
