Nothing beats the specs on galaxy camera. Quad core with 4.1 jb installed. Monster screen and great lens.

While it is a nice device, picture quality seems underwhelming. Nikon needs to make a beast like the galaxy camera.

I doubt Galxy Camera will stand a chance against Panasonic.

And it comes with a smartphone pricetag. While it may be a very solid camera, I can get a helluva camera for 500 bux.

Next year I am buying a new point n shoot to replace my aging one. I want the best I can buy with my money as far as picture quality goes, not how many cores the thing has.

Exactly. Considering most point and shoots are now including WiFi for sharing. I'd rather have a smartphone being camera centric than a camera trying to be a phone

its going to cost a very high budget for sure for $700 , better buy a dedicated entry level Dslr or mirrorless instead

Why would they even use a dated version of Android? :/
