  • Conclusion: It’s probably a long time since you owned a phone as chunky as this, so it will take a bit of getting used to. Because of its size, it feels like a step backwards in terms of design, but if it means you don’t need to take a camera everywhere you go, perhaps that’s not such a problem.

Samsung Galaxy K Zoom

  • 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.

  • Summary: The cameras on our smartphones have come a long way over the past several years, and have undoubtedly contributed to making point and shoot cameras obsolete . An important feature from these cameras that aren’t easily found with smartphone camera tech though is optical zoom.

  • Summary: A year ago, the manufacturer relied on their name. But that was all that the had in common with last year's flagship. And criticism was correspondingly harsh, even though from a purely technical point of view the smartphone was not nearly as bad it was made.
  • Pros: high processing quality, camera with clearly above-average results, very good battery life, faster SoC, battery exchangeable, memory expandable
  • Cons: no tripod thread, bulkier than its predecessor when used as camera, no RAW support, large case and high weight

  • Summary: The Galaxy K Zoom is Samsung's latest attempt at fusing together a smartphone and a 10x compact camera, and it's a definite improvement on last year's very similar Galaxy S4 Zoom. The Samsung Galaxy K Zoom still isn't the best smartphone or the best camera, so you'll really want to have both devices...

  • Summary: Samsung launched the Galaxy S4 zoom last year, to place their bets on the cameraphone market. It didn’t work out so well, as the S4 zoom was basically two devices slapped on together.
  • Pros: Massive improvements in usability compared to the S4 zoom, Above average AMOLED display, Snappy performance, Point and shoot camera performance
  • Cons: Camera is unstable sometimes, has bugs, Battery life is average, doesn’t meet expectations, Still thick and huge when compared to a normal cameraphone, Mid-range specifications – no 4K, sensor is still 1/2.3″
