pumeco: As said previously, I wish Samsung the best with this, however, I'm in agreement with a lot of people in that they got the concept wrong.

Having a proper zoom camera attached to the back of a Galaxy phone would have been a killer seller, I mean major seller! But I think they screwed-up here because it's the wrong way around, it's like they added a tablet to a camera instead of adding a proper zoom camera to their already magnificent phone.

I suppose it'll sell reasonably well, but it seems like a missed opportunity to me because Samsung make both cameras and phones, and having a proper Samsung zoom on the back of one of their phones, would have been a very desirable product indeed.

But this, nope, it's too big, and cannot make calls in the usual manner. Two major minuses that will likely outweigh any pluses. What were you thinking, Sammy?
