  • What's with all of these superzooms without GPS?

    Who uses these things, other than people who travel? And unless you travel to the most predictable tourist spots, a GPS is a must nowadays.

  • Nope. GSMArena is basically a Samsung fan site, where every comparison put the S5 on top, even though their own sample photos show the poor dynamic range and heavy over-processing.

    Samsung either...

    As superzooms are generally a compromise, I wonder what else do people use these superzooms for, if...
