Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom review

The optical zoom makes for a completely new look. Not everyone will find this visible camera lens positive. Other smartphones often have a digital zoom lens, and therefore a flatter design.

The camera performs fairly well in bad lighting conditions. However, it is not comparable with a 500 EUR compact camera, but fair is fair, they cannot make phone calls, nor do they have the other smartphone functionalities that the S4 Zoom has.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom Android smartphone

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is not only a digital camera. For all smartphone functionalities, the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system and the TouchWiz Nature UX 2.0 user interface are integrated. This combination is found in the entire Galaxy S4 Collection and shall not be completely unfamiliar to many. The S4 Zoom has the familiar notification screen, and this time with a ‘mere' 10 functions. Not all software functions were transferred from the S4, but the ‘smart sleep' function is available, which keeps the screen on as long as you are looking at it. The Galaxy S4 Zoom is easy to use and you can even operate it with one hand.
