WHY even bother?

A. Tay "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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

A sharp camera with a lousy battery life and dysfunctional Wifi

Dave, Amazon
19 July 2013
  • Summary: This camera has a great lens and takes excellent pictures. The battery life stinks even with the connectivity turned off. The connection to Wi-fi is pathetic; only one photo at a time can be transferred. When the screen goes dark and the camera goes to sleep then you've lost the connection and have to start over. Nikon had a great concept but blew it with the execution on this camera. I expect better from Nikon.

Battery life makes this unusable for travel.

Frustrated traveler, Nikon
30 May 2013
  • Summary: Do not buy this if you are traveling on vacation and can't recharge it several times a day. Battery life is miserable, not more than three hours, and less if you forget to shut down. i finally improved battery life a bit by shutting down all apps, putting it on airplane mode, and deleting all data for many of the preloaded google apps (gps, maps etc kill your battery life).
