The first YouTube video that we are showing you is a 17-minute review of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, and it points out right from the beginning that the S4 Zoom is more a shooter than a phone. It looks at the design, which is described as a Galaxy S4 Mini to the front, with compact point and shoot camera on the back. Because of its camera capabilities the Zoom is noted to be rather bulky.
The video goes on to look at various other aspects, such as the display, interface, processor, browser and connectivity, and much more. As you might expect it goes into some detail regarding the camera, and ultimately rather than being a cameraphone, the Galaxy S4 Zoom is said to be more of a compact camera with some functions of a phone. There are various pros and cons for this device, so why not check out the video for a really good look at the phone and what it offers.
The second video is a brief outdoor sample video taken with the Galaxy S4 Zoom, and the final video is an indoor sample.
