Humor: Some Nokia enthusiasts have some fun at Samsung’s expense

If one were to have an objective initial reaction upon seeing the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, it might definitely be, “form follows function…by a mile.”

Building upon the successful design of the Galaxy Camera, and the undisputed success of the Galaxy S line of smartphones, Samsung has given us the Galaxy S4 Zoom, a 16MP camera with a phone attached to it.

We saw an equally audacious venture from Nokia last year with the PureView 808, though no one would compare its form factor to that of the S4 Zoom. However, with a properly equipped Nokia Lumia 920, one could draw such a comparison. The gang at Nokia News had a little fun and clearly went through many, many minutes of development to show the world their answer to the Galaxy S4 Zoom.  Of course it is lacking a xenon flash, but it looks like it would be equally (or more so) uncomfortable in your pocket.

Of course, comparing the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom to the Nokia EOS would not be fair, as the latter device is clearly on a mission to ensure that form and function co-exist peacefully.

Thing is Samsung uses poly carbonate in its phones with a hyper glaze finish and gorilla glass screens. Now Nokia as seen in the lumia 925 uses polycarbonate and gorilla glass screen albeit with am alluminoum trim. Mocking polycarnonate phones is mocking thy self. Interesting Nokia has decided to go with poly carbonate also to stop its phones being extremely heavy .funny enough nokias best selling phone to date the lumia 520/521 is nearly all plastic

When you ask for recommendation from someone if camera is the topic, whether it is P&S camera or a camera on a phone, no one will ever mention Samsung. So, no, Samsung trying to compete with Nokia in phone camera? No way it can win. How about digital cameras? Everyone would recommend Nikon/Canon as the first 2 options, while Olympus has good waterproof rugged models. Fanboyism at its best.
