Conclusion: Samsung packs a lot (and we mean a lot ) into what is essentially an average point-and-shoot camera: Its specs are fine, and image quality is good, but not outstanding. But as we noted with the WB150F, Samsung’s forwarding-looking features and UI seal the deal, not image quality. Wi-Fi – done right – is quickly becoming an absolute must-have for point-and-shoots, and an engaging, easy-to-navigate UI is always in demand. You can check those both off with the WB850F.
Pros: Easy to use Wi-Fi function, Feature-packed and versatile, Great interface, Fast functioning and processing
Cons: GPS is easy to use, but battery draining, Average image quality, Can’t push ISO without noise
Summary: If you want an all-round traveller's camera, you need a long zoom, decent resolution and built-in GPS. The Samsung WB850F has them all, and the addition of Wi-Fi helps it stand out from the crowd, while justifying the slightly high price. It's well built, good looking and certainly one for your shortlist.
