Summary: I have had this camera for a few years. Purchased it when it first came out. Its a decent camera with a lot of options. I especially like the option where the camera automatically picks up on the surroundings to take the best quality picture. It just takes awhile to take the picture when you push the button. I prefer a faster rate, but for all the options and i love the dual screen, it's still a good camera. The front screen is a little hard to turn on.
Summary: To start off this camera has a front display which i love for taking pictures by my self. While accessing your pictures it has a swipe feature to go to the next picture or you can just tilt the camera and it will take you to the next picture. If you need to rotate a picture just swipe which way and the picture will rotate. For a 12 MP camera its very good. Con: Don't drop it! The camera was once dropped from 2 ft. and now the optical zoom has issues sometimes.
Samsung camera, great idea-could use some tweaking

Summary: My wife loves the camera, i find it to be somewhat time consuming to use for quick shots. The smile recognition is great but the camera gets "reset" sometimes and you might not realize it. The quality of the pictures is good and the front screen is nice when doing self shots and for entertaining the kids. Love the touchscreen feature though.
Summary: So far we are very pleased with the camera. The ability to take self photos is a great addicion to camera design. I only gave it 4 stars becasue we have only had it for 2 months so durability etc. are still not known.
Summary: I got this for my girlfriend specifically because she wanted the front facing screen for taking self-portraits with friends. The camera takes good quality pictures for what you would expect from these pocket point-and-click cameras. Also, from bootup to taking a picture is quick and simple. That aside, my main complaint is with the menu system which is not intuitive and you will have to dig around a bit and get used to it.
Summary: Ordered this camera for my wife because she just wants a simple point and shot type digital camera that can take reasonable pictures without any fiddling with controls. If viewed from this point of view, this camera is quite good - one puts it in "smart" mode and it will take care of most everything else for you. Yes, this isn't a DSLR and cannot be compared in the same light. When compare with my "larger" camera, this simply lacks the finesse, precision and speed.
Summary: I had a Kodak point and shoot touch screen but had problems with the software and speed of the camera. I came across this camera in a Best Buy first-day-release display and was ready to buy from moment one. Have you ever used your cell phone camera and you may have that small mirror little space for self-portraits? I'm using it all the time - to now have great sized LCD in front is ideal.
Well thought out and technically advanced with a few issues.

Summary: TL220 Review PROS Menu system is fast. For a touchscreen i find it to be more than adequate. Response times don't keep you waiting. Very "iphone-ish" in the sense that its touch and has features like multi-delete (select as many pictures as you want to delta in one fatal swoop instead of deleting a single image at a time), accelerometer for browsing pictures and tap to focus, which is sweet. Sweet continuous shoot mode. Seems to capture fractions of a second at a time.
Summary: Love this camera! The front LCD, was a wonderful idea. It works so perfect, and even has little images to capure childrens attention (that works so wonderfully). Compared to the rest at the moment, this is a great buy.
