I liked galaxy zoom alot! Its a great phone with good caracteristics and the camera is excellent! You have to think that it can be compared with the nokia 1020 but in price it is better.
I also liked that it is compatible with 4G and the internet speed is excellent.

S4 Zoom IDK

jkristian718 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

This is a phenomenal camera and could be a greater phone if Samsung put it on a regular S4 "chassis" if you will. It's too small to have such a large camera and the battery should have been a lot stronger to accomodate all of the features that the s4 has innately.
My hands are large and I struggle with holding on to it! It's a hot camera and I enjoy taking pics of my family but I also need a phone that won't die out on me before the end of the day. Seriously thinking about the Nokia 1020 as a replacement.

Build quality 6/10 Too small of a frame for such a power packed camera

I personally think that S4 Zoom is versatile as for taking pictures with only a press of a button whether it's from the screen or from the built in button at the side of the phone. If it's compared to Lumia pureview I'd say that Lumia did a very well job on that but not many realize that to compensate for it's large MP it has sacrificed the sensor instead but still did a great job at it . In the meanwhile Zoom however has a balanced MP with a greater sensor which helps with Color correction and Noise reduction aswell as great low-light photography. With a great feature of 10x Optical zoom and still retains the crisp of the taken photo at any distance.

Build quality 8/10 Even though It's bulky , It's pretty sturdy for a camera phone.
Reception 7/10
Call quality 10/10 Like any other smartphones , this also has It's own capability to call.
Internet 10/10 This gadget works well with any other wifi depending on the speed.
Multimedia 9/10 This gadget maintains the multimedia quality even if it has a compact camera on the back.
Camera 10/10 As I have said in the description a great phone like S4 mini with a superior compact camera at the back.
UI speed 10/10 The reduction of the resolution and increased RAM really did have a difference and has a faster response rate.
Everyday usage 10/10 I pretty much use this phone for daily use in calling , texting , uploading and it did a very well job .
Text input 9/10 The Samsung text input was just normal but because of the swype everything got very easy once you get used to it.
Display 9/10 The screen is very smooth and anti-scratch free thanks to Gorrila glass 3 . I could have given this a 10 but because of the reduced resolution I'll have to give it a 9
Battery 10/10 The battery usage of this is like my Samsung TB 3 It depends on how you use it but I did use it for 2 continous days without it reaching to 30%
