Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy K Zoom

60% Samsung Galaxy K Zoom
Source: Gadget Show English
Samsung has largely improved on last year's Galaxy S4 Zoom with the Galaxy K Zoom, cranking up its camera skills and dropping its huge heft, but it's simply still a tank of a phone. Despite its top-notch camera, the rest of the specs don't match up to its £400 price-tag. Samsung has tried to deliver the best of both camera and phone, and unfortunately, it just doesn't match up.

82% Samsung Galaxy K zoom review: the point-and-shoot with a phone
Source: Pocketnow English
That being said, we’re still not sure we’re able to answer our fundamental questions about this device, but we’ll try our best. Is it a phone? It definitely is a smartphone, and a rather capable one at that, being able to handle most of today’s tasks without a problem. Is it a camera? It surely is, and a good one at that. Who would buy it? The person who doesn’t care about added bulk, is not a spec-head (but rather a casual smartphone user), is relatively light on using the phone, and cares a lot about his or her on-the-go photography. Why? Well, you tell us why you’d buy (or skip) the Samsung Galaxy K zoom, in the comments below.

The Samsung Galaxy K Zoom is a good smartphone with mid-range internals that will make the average user happy. It is, however, only a good camera compared with a digital compact, making it hard to recommend wholeheartedly.

70% Samsung Galaxy K Zoom review

The Samsung Galaxy K Zoom is a strange middle-ground phone. It doesn’t have every latest feature under the sun, but makes sacrifices in design that mean people may assume it does. Really, this phone is all about the optical zoom, and we still think that the Galaxy S5 can actually produce somewhat superior photos when shooting at a wide angle. For most, this phone isn’t really a sensible compromise, but there are real benefits to having a 10x optical zoom in a phone.
