  • Summary: The Nikon S800c is an interesting hybrid of connected mobile device and traditional compact camera. The end result is a capable, but far from inspiring product which offers a lot of potential but not without some frustrations.
  • Pros: Android ecosystem adds thousands of ways to edit and share your photos (among other things), 10X, 25 - 250 mm zoom lens in a small, stylish package, Sharp and vivid 3.5in touchscreen OLED display, Fast AF, shot-to-shot speeds, Built-in Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth, Automatic scene selection when in ...
  • Cons: Mediocre photo quality; photos are soft and noisy, with strong highlight clipping at times, Terrible battery life, Wi-Fi has very poor reception, occasional connection problems, Buggy playback mode sometimes displayed photos out of order, or not at all, Camera not fully functional until Android i...

  • Excerpt: At first glance, the Nikon Coolpix S800c ($349) looks like just another compact ultra zoom camera. It's anything but ordinary. The Coolpix S800c is one of only two cameras on the market powered by the Android operating system, with the other being Samsung's Galaxy Camera .

2 January 2013
  • Summary: At Rs 20,950 (including a 4GB SD card, pouch and HDMI cable), the Nikon Coolpix S800c is priced at par with premium travel zoom digital cameras such as Canon PowerShot SX260 HS. Considering the S800c lacks good zoom range and manual modes, coupled with the fidgety user interface and performance that...

  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S800c has the feel of a camera rushed through to be the first of its kind. It offers a glimpse of how smart cameras can revolutionise photography, which is an exciting prospect given that the technology will probably be developed further and find its way into more high-end cameras.

  • Summary: The first of any new product line is never going to offer value for money alongside the thrill of the new. And the Nikon Coolpix S800c is an exciting product, even if the short battery life is an issue as is the fact that accessing the ability to take photos isn't as immediate as we feel it should...

Pocket Lint
12 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Conceptually courageous, the Android OS feels like it’s forged rather than forced into this camera concept. Android - even version 2.3 - works as a great base to run apps, share images and much more.
  • Pros: Responsive touchscreen, capable 10x optical zoom, better-than Smartphone pictures, browsing plus apps and sharing all possible, 1.7GB internal storage
  • Cons: Too expensive, battery life not good enough, slow start-up time, no manual controls
