Take a 10k camera, put android on it, name it GALAXY S4 (something) and whoosh people will buy that crap for 30k....nIf you have even 1 thought of getting it as a camera better get a SLR...nnSLR will have at-least 8 times big sensor (for nearly same price)...nA key factor which affects quality of a camera..nnOne more point this is not at all a phone just look at the dimensions and weight of this phone...nnBest alternatives-nNokia 808 (biggest sensor on smart phone, nearly 4 times of s4 zoom)nNokia 1020 (slaightly smaller than 808)nSony Xperia z1 (same sensor size as of s4 zoom)
I purchased this Phone on Feb 1st 2014 from Samsung store for 30K. I also got One Flip Case which also have cover for camera lens. Sennheiser HeadPhones, 16GB samsung micro SD card. 50 GB of Drop box. all worth around 5K. So my total cost came down to 25K. I have seen lot of 1 star ratings on this Phone. Yes I agree that the phone look odd when you speak to some one from it. The camera lens behind it looks bulky and also phone is heavier than normal slim smart phones of its class. However, if you compromise for those things then you are getting a handy phone with good phone features and a very good in fact excellent Camera. No Phone in this world has 10X Optical Zoom (Emphasizing on Optical Zoom). Sensors are almost same in all the phones of their respective classes. Picture taken at 10X optical zoom is as clear as the picture taken without zoom in Sunlight. You don't have to carry a separate DSLR camera if you go out for touring. You'll get excellent pictures with this phone.nnCons: Internal memory is only 8GB can be better. If it had 16GB then it would have been excellent.nnPlease read this review and make your decision and don't go by the review of 1 star reviews who are criticizing the makers of this phone. They are giving their best shot to satisfy their customer base. Please stop criticizing Phone makers and make your own decisions. Do not mislead Customers.nnYou can also wait for some more time to get Samsung Galaxy K Zoom which has excellent features and yet it is sleek in design. I bet in next 2 or 3 years people will forget about buying cameras and go with these Phone/Cameras. Of course professional photographers can ignore this review ;-)nnPeople who are seriously thinking about buying this products please read my review and make your decision. Flipkart selling this phone for such a discounted prize please don't lose this opportunity. In fact it is worth buying this phone for 16499/-
