Summary: Bought this for my vacation to Europe. On day 3, the zoom lens was stacked and can't use the camera at all. Called Samsung tech support when I got back from vacation but tech support cannot help, saying that the serial number doesn't exist. Weeks later, I got an email from Samsung tech support, asking for serial number again. I responded to the email but I did not hear back from Samsung ever again. It's been 6 months. What a rip-off.
Summary: The camera and everything LOOKS promising, but the way it works is a disaster. The quality of the photos are decent I guess, but it's hard for me to really get used to a camera if the way it was built and how its features function drives me insane. I don't know who decided to model the camera this way, but I want to know what they were smoking. One of the things that really annoys me about this camera is the flash.
Summary: I returned the camera because because the minimal direction were very confusing. I was especially interested in the WiFi addition to the camera but there were no instructions on how to use it. It may very well be a good camera, but I am not a good enough technician to use it. Too bad. I want my money back and have returned the camera.
Summary: Quality of the camera is very bad. We've been using Canon camera w/ 7.8Magapixel and 3.8X optical zoom since 2007, this camera is supposed to be an upgrade and come out to be much worse. The camera is always dead/down (like a computer doesn't have enough ram and become dead) while we switch in modes or between modes, or even try to zoom in and out.

Summary: I purchases this item from Electronics Basket with fulfillment by Amazon. I spent a week researching this item and went into Best Buy to get a hands on experience. So a couple of days ago I ordered this camera. There were several options/colors/price points to consider. I originally wanted the white but went with red and with this company because the price was good ( though there were cheaper options but in the wrong color) and the item was fulfilled by Amazon.
Summary: Where to start? Truly if there were minus stars this would be a good time to use them. Clumsy lay out ugly piece of plastic looks like it came freshly printed out of a cheap 3-D printer. Underlined by a plastic bullet screw mount that surely won't survive more than a couple of weeks. Horrible image quality barely living up to the camera of a high class smart phone, flat washed out colours, mostly overexposed and almost never sharp.
Summary: I purchased this camera to replace a stolen camera right before my trip to Europe. I liked the features it offered, so I went for it. The camera has a very poor reaction time. I was on a tour bus and missed several good photo opportunities because the camera wouldn't focus quick enough, and several times it wouldn't snap the picture when I pushed down the button. It was very frustrating. Another thing is the battery life is absolutely atrocious!
Pros: Bright display, DECENT PICTURES
Cons: Did not meet expectations, Poor Battery Life, Poor quality, terrible reaction time, Too Big
