The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is a camera phone that face, reminds us of a Samsung Galaxy S4, yet there are two very different devices. It would even be more appropriate to say that the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom resembles the Samsung Galaxy Mini S4. At the rear, it looks like the Samsung Galaxy Camera, with great photo 16 megapixel sensor with a 10x optical zoom, to improve the capacity and performance of the sensor, but also far enough to surpass competitors Smartphones.

But then, is that the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom has enough evidence to make the next must-have smartphone? Stay with us to find out.

Key features of the Galaxy S4 Zoom

  • 16-megapixel camera
  • 10x optical zoom
  • Optical image stabilization, manual zoom and Xenon flash
  • Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
  • 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED Screen
  • Dual-Core CPU 1.5 GHz
  • 1.5 GB of RAM
  • 8 GB of internal storage expandable via microSD card
  • 2330 mAh


In terms of design, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is obviously not the best family Galaxy S4, aesthetic and ergonomic point of view. The device looks more like a traditional compact camera at a premium smartphone. With 15.4 mm thick and 208 grams, it is not the lightest. Since the camera was focused in the field of photography, there is a big goal at the rear, fitted with the 10x optical zoom with an adjustment ring, a set that night also slightly ease of use in a vertical position.

In addition, as the Galaxy S4 original, the plastic “hyperglazed” not so convinced, and the glossy finish makes it quite smooth and delicate to handle the rear. It is also found that the cover of the battery and the SIM card is a bit fragile. It is held in place with a clip not so reassuring. But to put a small positive to all this point, it must be said that the control layout is quite comfortable, whether you use the device as a phone or as a camera. Finally, although it is not as compact as other smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is still a handheld device (provided you do not wear tight jeans).

The screen

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is a step backwards compared to the 5-inch Full HD flagship device, the Galaxy S4. This does not mean, however, that the screen is not dynamic and enjoyable. We found a Super AMOLED QHD 4.3-inch screen with a resolution of 960 x 540, can produce bright and powerful images with minimal detail and clarity loss, and with a small amount of grain. The screen transitions are quite fluid and tactile elements are sensitive.

Sure, the screen of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is smaller than the classic Galaxy S4, but the unit remains a serious candidate compared to many devices, especially those who find themselves in the mid-range market.


First impressions offered by the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom at this level is that its features and specifications are quite familiar. The device runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean overlaid with Samsung’s TouchWiz interface. Which reminds of course the flagship device from Samsung, the Galaxy S4. By cons, we notice that the device is a little slower to relax, which is probably due to the dual-core processor running at 1.5 GHz and lower RAM 1.5 GB should still emphasize that we tested a pre-production model, which suggests that some software problems can be the cause.

In addition, 8 GB of internal memory available may be filled pretty quickly, especially with this powerful camera. Fortunately, you can expand the memory with a microSD card, up to 64GB, which calm the criticism. Otherwise, the device also has a good performance with its Lithium-Ion 2330 mAh battery, and an NFC connectivity, although the latter requires additional testing.


The camera of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is the ultimate argument of the latter, and as the best device ever connected to a smartphone to date. Sure, it has the size and the price is quite big (445 euros), but the device will still represent a good option for those who want to primarily high-quality pictures, especially with the 16 megapixel enhanced by 10x optical zoom, optical image stabilization and some 25 modes available.

To get into some of the technical terms, it is a f/3.1-f/6.3 lens with a focal range of 24mm to 240mm, which means that the Galaxy S4 Zoom is capable of capturing both wide in zoom mode with virtually the same quality rendering. The screen allows you to view the captured images, the rendering is crisp and clear, well detailed, with color management much deeper than what is found on standard smartphones. The 10x optical zoom makes a huge difference, and allows the unit to fully replace a compact camera.

The transition between the two modes (phone and camera) is particularly fluid. Simply hold the shutter button to activate the camera, and simple return to the home screen will result in the automatic cancellation of the zoom. In addition, the adjustment ring is also a particularly interesting feature that can be used for many shortcuts, aside from its primary function of zoom setting. For example, it can be used to navigate through the various menus, take a photo in the call, etc..

In all cases, proposed by the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom camera is impressive, and could very well be the success of the device.


That one could say the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom far is that it is a device that is not very practical and comfortable. By cons, compared with a compact camera, it stands out because it is very versatile. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is both a good and a good smartphone camera. It is also a device with the latest version of Android (4.2.2 Jelly Bean), comes with all the features you could dream. Sure, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom does not charm everyone, but it will more than satisfy the needs of those who want to own a smartphone capable of providing an extraordinary camera.
