Samsung Galaxy K Zoom

Channel5
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: Samsung has largely improved on last year's Galaxy S4 Zoom, cranking up its camera skills and dropping its huge heft, but it's simply still a tank of a phone. Despite its top-notch camera, the rest of the specs don't match up to its £400 price-tag. Samsung has tried to deliver the best of both camera and phone, and unfortunately, it just doesn't match up.

Samsung Galaxy K zoom review: the point-and-shoot with a phone

pocketnow.com
17 August 2014
  • Conclusion: We had a lot of complaints last year with the Galaxy S4 zoom. Needless to say, most of those issues return on our 2014 K zoom list as well. While Samsung has definitely improved the specifications on paper, it has still not addressed some rather important aspects, like the LED notification, or the simplest, no-brainer capability of waking the phone into the camera app with the camera button (alone).
  • Pros: + optical zoom lens, - bulky, ugly, hefty, - only 8GB of internal storage (5GB available), - no LED notification light, shutter button won’t wake the device (unless you combine it with the volume up key, which takes up two hands), - poor battery life
  • Cons: - bulky, ugly, hefty, - only 8GB of internal storage (5GB available), - no LED notification light, shutter button won’t wake the device (unless you combine it with the volume up key, which takes up two hands), - poor battery life

Samsung Galaxy K zoom review: Zoom-zoom

GSM Arena
4 July 2014
  • Conclusion: When you pack for vacation you make sure you grab a good pair of travel shoes, but is there such a thing as a good "travel phone"? Perhaps a cheap dual-SIM to make use of a local SIM card, but why not a Samsung Galaxy K zoom - so you can leave your camera at home? You won't miss it either, the K zoom has the camera guts of a Samsung point-and-shoot.
  • Pros: 20.7MP camera - 1/2.3" sensor, 10x optical zoom (24-240mm), optical image stabilization, xenon flash, 1080p video camera, 30fps and 60fps modes, 2MP / 1080p front-facing camera, 4.8" Super AMOLED, 720 x 1,280px, 306ppi; Gorilla Glass 3 with ambient light sensor, Android OS v4.4.2 KitKat, Exynos 5260 chipset with dual-core 1.7GHz Cortex-A15 and quad-core 1.3GHz quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU; 2GB RAM; Mali-T624 GPU, 8GB of built-in storage, expandable via the microSD card slo...
  • Cons: Thicker and heavier than a regular smartphone, No 2160p video capture, Manual camera controls are hard to use

Samsung Galaxy K Zoom review

Techworld
30 June 2014
  • Summary: By no means the perfect combination of a smartphone and zoom lens, the K Zoom isn’t half bad. It’s capable of great photos and videos in the right conditions. This isn’t a device for everyone, but if the “zoom camera with a built-in smartphoneâ€� concept appeals to you and you don’t mind the size and weight, it’s currently your best option.

Samsung Galaxy K Zoom is half phone, half camera, not brilliant at either

CNET
12 June 2014
  • Summary: If you absolutely must have a phone with an optical zoom, the K Zoom is basically your only option. It's bulky though, and the pictures it takes aren't any better than the Galaxy S5's. You'll be far better off with a cheap Android phone and a decent compact digital camera.
  • Pros: The Samsung Galaxy K Zoom's impressive 10x optical zoom gets you up close with your subject without losing image quality. It has plenty of power for most tasks and it has the latest Android software too.
  • Cons: It's bulky and heavy, making it awkward for everyday use, while its overall image quality doesn't particularly impress and it has a disappointingly low resolution display.

Review – Samsung Galaxy K zoom

What Mobile
3 September 2014
  • Excerpt: Most contemporary flagship smartphones contain solid cameras. High-end  handsets such as the and all have powerful snappers with solid image editing features. All of them, however, offer limited zoom functions. None of them matching a compact digital camera. Samsung aims to bridge that gap with the Galaxy K zoom, a phone-camera hybrid that sports a 20.7MP lens with 10x optical zoom.
  • Pros: 10x optical zoom, Packed with camera features, Processor handles general tasks well
  • Cons: Hideous design, Large dimensions restrict mobility

Zoom, zoom: Samsung’s Galaxy K Zoom 10x optical camera phone reviewed

Gadget Guy
16 July 2014
  • Summary: Samsung’s update to its hybrid Galaxy S4 Zoom camera phone is, like that model, an interesting beast. On the one hand, it provides one of the best pocketable cameras you can find around, and pairs it with some otherwise decent smartphone innards, most of which will suit everyone out there.
  • Pros: One of the most versatile smartphone cameras you'll find today, Looks more phone-like than the last Samsung camera-phone hybrid, Supports fast 4G connectivity
  • Cons: Chunky, No infrared, The odd performance glitch here and there holds up the phone, Shutter button doesn't go right into the camera like it does on other phones
