Summary: Very regret of getting this phone! It's totally not worth the price! I was so excited when this phone first came out and went ahead abandoned my 7 years relationship with iPhone and made the switch...however, I regret every second owning it! It's bulky shape, poor picture quality and the WORST battery life ever (I have to charge it 2-3 times every day) made me can't stand this phone anymore.
Summary: phone was scratched at the edges missing a lot of that silver paint that goes around the outside of the phone,, and when I took a pict I noticed some black spots in my picts and video.. I don't see them when im taking the picts or recording but I can definitely see them when picts or viedeo had been taken..
Summary: I feel so taken. This is not the 21 power zoom 16.3 megapixel camera I thought it was like what Costco carries for $399 including case and micro-card. This unit is the 10 power, smaller, less powerful camera for about the same price as the better larger more complete one, and....it has no micro-card and no carrying case and it's zoom is half of the comparable model.
Summary: For the price - total garbage. Thick, small screen, touchwiz samsung UI, HEAVY. I was ready to accept these if camera was good, but it is NOT!!! I compared it to galaxy S4 and they were very very comparable, nexus 5 actually did much better job in low light, even though zoom has OIS. Just get nokia 808 or 1020 for camera or even better DSLR. This is a brick not worth carrying in your pocket.
Terrible design... the Shutter Button is always on. Slightest touch closes your app and opens camera!

Summary: Returned this unit for a regular Galaxy S4 after a very frustrating weekend. The shutter release button is EXTREMELY sensitive to the slightest touch, no matter what mode you're in. So, you can be looking at photos, or doing something else, and you just touch the button, it closed what you were doing and zooms out the lens, and turns on the camera. There should be a way to have it inactive except for when using the camera, but there is NO way to disable that button.
Summary: I never leave home without a camra in my pocket, I used to be the same with film with an olympus trip 35 as permanent pocket ballast. I currently have a canon powershot 220 that is never out of reach. I also run a motorola defy. I would be happier with a camera that had phone functionality rather than a phone with camera functionality.
Pros: interesting idea for the future.
Cons: it's too much compromise not enough quality.
