Galaxy S4 Zoom

Big camera, mid-range specs and now with U.S. LTE

Following up on its announcement earlier this week, AT&T has started offering the Galaxy S4 zoom for $199 with a two-year contract. The smartphone/camera mash-up will set you back a full $529 if you're looking to buy without a contract, or $25 per month if you want to finance with AT&T Next. For that money you'll be getting the point-and-shoot camera style 16MP sensor along with 10x optical zoom and a camera-centric design with a physical shutter button.

On the phone side, you'll be looking at a Samsung experience with most of the latest features, although some have been scaled back a tad for the lower-end internals. That's the tradeoff you'll make for some great picture and video quality, and for the right user it might be worth a look.

Why not buy this? It's a very well specced, capable smartohone, that has a very quality camera, with a nice zoom lens.

Might be useful for a local Newspaper Sports writer or roving reporter, but realistically this FrankenPhone is a "Just because we can" device.

The market for it must be vanishingly small. Not quite good enough of a camera, not quite impressive enough of a phone. If you are "That Guy" that just happens to need a 200 dollar camera welded to a 200 dollar phone, it might be just right.

Made me think of flight of the concords 'camera phone' Haha.

The only reason to buy this monster would be if you want Android as your OS, but if you are buying a smartphone for the camera alone only a fool would go for this monstrosity instead of the Lumia 1020.
