Conclusion: The WB250F is a pretty neat little camera that offers an impressive set of features at a decent price. The biggest challenge that Samsung or any other DSC manufacturer faces is to convince you to buy one. Even looking at Samsung’s own portfolio, the Galaxy S4 takes pictures good enough to share online on your favourite social networks, or alternatively, spend a bit more and get the Samsung NX20 which takes brilliant shots.

Pros: The Samsung WB250F Smart Camera has excellent wireless features and an abundance of shooting options for all types of shooters. It has a handy pop-up flash and very good photo and video quality for its price and features.

Summary: Conclusion The WB250F is a nice option for those casual photographers on a budget. With a retail price of about $250, this camera offers plenty of features -- especially Wi-Fi. That being said, discerning point and shoot photographers will want to look for another option...possibly the Samsung EX2F , which received much praise in our recent review. Image quality is not the best feature of this camera. It is good, but not great.

Summary: Samsung's WB250F can capture clear and vibrant images, and it gives you the bonus feature of Wi-Fi, with which you can transfer pictures from the camera to a smartphone. It has good credentials as a camera, and the Wi-Fi stuff can be useful, even though battery life takes a hit and even though some of the sharing features can be frustrating to use.
Pros: Clear image quality, Lots of zoom, Wi-Fi
Cons: Built-in sharing services aren't great, Menu a little sluggish, Battery life with Wi-Fi on
Excerpt: Fazit: Die Samsung WB250F ist eine komfortabel ausgestattete und zoomstarke Kamera. Dank WLAN schicken Sie Aufnahmen kabellos zum Smartphone. Die WB250F bietet eine mäßig gute Bildqualität und eignet sich zumindest bei weitwinkliger Brennweite für Schnappschüsse.
Conclusion: La Samsung WB250F è in definitiva una fotocamera di buona qualità, con una scheda tecnica di buon livello e qualche nota da evidenziare, come la connettività Wi-Fi, il display touchscreen, i comandi manuali, uno zoom ottico elevato, i filmati Full HD e un’ottima ergonomia. Tuttavia, presenta alcuni lati negativi, come ad esempio un autofocus non sempre veloce e un eccessivo rumore a valori ISO bassi.
