The only bad thing bout this camera its on at&t with its over price data plan. Just buy a pre paid SIM CARD.

Would've been better if you CAN make calls on it...
And it BETTER have a front facing camera & Cam Cordero on both of the cams, or ELSE!...

I find this phone to be inspired especially by the Nokia's camera, Pureview 808, with a real gigantic sensor, but with visibly much higher specs, and would call it - MADE BY PUREVIEW. Hats off to Samsung for copying, sorry breaking the limits of copying. This reaction to the extreme flop from Nokia isn't any better as it doesn't sport a Carl Zeiss Sensor, or even Exmor Sensor, which can capture much better colours and high amount of details at the same time.

ok couple things

first its not a phone its a camera running android

second where have they copied nokia- the 808 and this are 2 different devices for different markets. the samsung galaxy camera isnt trying to compete with the 808 and visa versa.

and what was a flop from nokia? the 808? no its a niche device was never gonna be a wide seller as most never knew about it and some still dont. nokia never advertised it like there doing for there wp8 line up

and weird it says Carl Zeiss 41mp sensor on my 808....yet according to you nokia doesnt support them

do some proper research before commenting

samsung got this idea because of 808 pureview.. nokia made a phone with great camera optics..but people bashed why not just buy a dedicated camera instead...
so samsung made an idea, why not make a dedicated camera, with a phone OS. screw them

well wrong as there are already camera's out running android.

You cant state that Samsung did this in response to the reception the 808 got. the 808 is aimed at those who want one device that offers an exceptional camera with the functionality of a top range smartphone.

this camera is sort of an extension for those who love the android OS to experience it on other devices. if your used to android it makes sense as you can now have a phone,tablet and camera all running the same OS.

but again this and the 808 are not in competition, 2 different devices. still the 808 is the more innovative product of the 2

ok. but if they hack this camera, holding this on your ear to call someone, will make you look stupid

samsung needs to keep their priorties intact.......so what are they suggesting? for us to buy a camera that can make phone calls instead of just continuing to build off of what the galaxies S3 camera can do?

no there just trying to bring there camera range up with there phones, those who are invested in android would go out and buy a android camera wouldn't they?

the only thing id say is they should adapt android and make it more functional for this purpose on there camera's. its one thing to have a mobile OS on a camera but im sure most would prefer a focused OS for the task they use it for i.e. photo's video's etc

Umm look at the last picture with button with weird looking arrow that is the flash and the picture of the top of the camera there is a rectangualr square that is the flash why there not showing the flash popped up is beyond me. Look at the samsung digital camera WB850 smart camera it's basically the same camera but with a bigger LCD, android and a quad core processor. They should have network access consider people still send Multimedia Messages to their friends via SMS. IMO that would it make it a real competitor on the market. Finally an all in one phone.
