Is it average? Does it work? Does it break easily and need repair?

photography435, Nikon
20 August 2014
  • Summary: I would say that it is not average. Although it has apps and music on it unlike normal cameras, it is extremely slow after using it for about a month and it sometimes freezes. I had used this camera for about 3 months before the place where you connect the cord to charge the camera was too damaged to charge the camera. The camera works fantastic to take pictures. If that is the main reason for the camera, I recommend it. If it isn't, I do not recommend it.

Thought this was the answer

Heather McCue, Amazon

  • Summary: I was so hopeful that this camera would finally be the one that took me away from my iphone pictures but it freezes and is just too unreliable. Uploading is just a joke as it takes so long. I read the manual and I watched YouTube after YouTube before I gave up and now unfortunately, it's just another camera in my drawer of cameras that don't get used.

WHY even bother?

A3 "Private Tay", Amazon
21 January 2014
  • Summary: AS a camera, it's not bad If you don't mind not being able to control metering mode, aperture or shutter speed (You get to control ISO and WB) As an Android, it's rubbish I had it in front of the modem and it still kept disconnecting Thinking that perhaps the laptop was 'stealing' the signal from the s800, I turned off the Lenovo But still, I could not get online Not once Repat.

Good idea but needs adjustments

  • Summary: Good pictures but it has problems connecting to Internet at times. Android system on it needs adjustments. It's a good thing I bought it on sale.

I really wanted to like it.

Mary Field, Amazon
14 December 2013
  • Summary: I am not a camera expert. I heavily use point and shoot cameras and went with this one because of the added feature of being able to upload directly to picasa. In the beginning I almost returned it because as one other reviewer mentioned, it wouldn't actually turn off and the battery drained overnight (I thought I had turned it off) and I then couldn't take pictures of my kids' school function.

Veva Goehler, Amazon

  • Summary: the shutter has issues - it doesn't always open was to busy to return the apps part is clumsy and it doesn't connect to the internet well a shutter is a basic camera function - regret this purchase annoying when companies do their Quality Assurance in the field by their customer where did business find this model?

Great idea, did not work.

Jack Jamison, Amazon
5 November 2013
  • Summary: The idea of a android camera is great. However, it seems they have a way to go to perfect this technology. After several attempts with Nikon customer service, they ended up blaming a wrong brand memory card, wifi wouldn't work if the camera was less than 80% charged, and finally my new ipad for its failure to send pictures. It did work one time - the first time I tried it, and I was excited to have the ability to email pictures.

Lovely photos, everything else stinks

jangann "jangann", Amazon
21 August 2013
  • Summary: I take great photos with this camera. Not too many, as the battery lasts less than a day. And I don't get to see them easily, as I can't charge the battery and use the camera at the same time. And the system seems to simply freeze with no reason. And it won't connect directly to my computer, so I had to buy a card reader. And the wifi is dodgy. And the screen scatches very easily. So I wouldn't buy this camera again, unfortunately.

Not worth e money

D. Berger, Amazon
7 August 2013
  • Summary: I was excited about this camera and bought it for vacation. Halfway into the vacation, all I want to do is return it, if I could. It doesn't hold the charge long, even after shutting down all the apps and wifi, and the picture quality, despite 16 pixels, is not very sharp. From, very disappointed....

Battery life sucks...

KIMBERLEY D THORN, Amazon
20 July 2013
  • Summary: To many things going on at once. The battery life is very short until needing a recharge. Better cameras out there for the money.
