Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom Review

Brief Overview:

Introducing a brand new trend of keeping in touch with the world, the latest technological marvel, Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, brings you the perfect combination of an advanced still & video camera and stylish Android-powered Smartphone. As the last part of the name suggests, the special feature of the gadget is that of the Zoom Ring and Optical Zoom Control. In addition, you can make maximum out of its 16MG back-facing Camera, 4G (LTE) network coverage, 2330 mAh battery, the latest Jelly Bean OS version, Dual-Core 1.5 GHz CPU, and Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen.

S4 Zoom versus S4:

As the zoom model gives you a super excellent precision camera, you will have to compromise for certain other appealing features that you could enjoy in Galaxy S4. For example, the internal storage capacity has been reduced from 64 GB to mere 8 GB; body weight has been increased from 130 g to 208 g; thickness is almost doubled; display size gets smaller by 0.7 inches; and pixel density is also affected. However, there do exist some similarities between the two siblings as well. For instance, both the models support 4G (LTE) coverage and microSD card for external storage option. Each of these is also equipped with Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, standard 3.5 mm jack, A-GPS (Assisted Global Positioning System), Secondary Camera and HTML5 browser.

What is Superior in S4 Zoom?

Optical Zoom Control & Zoom Ring: The most significant advantage of the Zoom version is its re-imagined Optical Zoom Control system where the traditional buttons and dials have been replaced with the smooth, easy-to-operate digital controls. In addition, with just a quick twist of the zoom ring, you can achieve professional-quality accuracy in creating tight focus effects and capturing wide-angle shots. In this way, the wonderful ring technology enables you travel near or far with unprecedented ease.

Instant Access to Multiple Camera Modes: With the innovative feature of Quick Launch and Shortcut, you can get instant access to the multiple camera modes, viz. Auto, Manual, Smart Mode, Gallery and Program. For dialing up these different camera modes, you are just required to give a quick twist to the front-mounted zoom ring and politely touch the display.

Simultaneous Talk, Shoot & Share: The “In-Call Photo Share” feature opens for you a new window of possibilities for taking pictures. Yes, while talking with your friend on phone, you can not only take a shot but also send it in a text. And all this will be done within a couple of moments.

Superior Low-Light Performance: Now, you can make your pictures come alive with the advanced sensor technology of your device. The 16 MP (megapixel) BSI (backside illuminated) CMOS sensor is not just super fast and super sensitive; it requires less light for proper exposure and instant focus as compared to the conventional sensors.

16MP Camera: The whooping 16MP (megapixel) autofocus Primary Camera will render your pictures unprecedented sharpness, clarity and re-imagined brilliance. There is also a front-facing secondary camera that can be used for making HD video calls with your loved ones.

Wondrous Connectivity Options:

Along with being an exceptional quality camera, this marvelous gadget from the South Korean Samsung Group also serves a supreme standard Smartphone which brings you the most advanced connectivity options, such as:

LTE and Micro-SIM: The 21st century era is, undoubtedly, an age of 4G/LTE technology that provides ultra-broadband internet access with superfast data transfer rates for mobile devices. So, if you buy Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, you will be enjoying the same level of excellence and modernity in wireless connectivity. In addition, you will also find a micro-SIM card slot for making instant calls with the friends, family and acquaintances living at the far off corner of the world.

V4.0 Bluetooth: The latest Bluetooth technology (v4.0 with A2DP, LE) is yet another great option, at your disposal, to enjoy extra-fast speeds for miscellaneous types of data transfer.

NFC, USB and Infrared Port: With the utilization of this Near Field Communication option, you can transfer data even while your phone is turned off! However, you will have to satisfy yourself with its short range, which is over about a 10 cm distance. In addition, you can also utilize the options of USB on-the-go and Infrared Port for connectivity.

Display and Dimensions: Weighing about 208 g, it measures 125.5 mm, 63.5 mm and 15.4 mm in length, width and thickness, respectively. If you compare its thickness with the S4 version, you will witness a significant increase from extreme slimness of 7.9 mm to 15.4 mm, and that is particularly because of the additional camera features. The display is about 4.3 inches, which has been decreased not only in size but also in pixel density.

Bottom Line:

No doubt, while treating it as a Smartphone, you will have to rely on certain inferior specs (as compared with its S4 predecessor), but considering it a modern video capturing device will give you utmost satisfaction and pleasure. Another attraction comes in the form of reasonable Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom price in Pakistan which can easily be confirmed from a reliable online source.
