Manufacturer description: The Samsung Galaxy Camera 4G is a 16MP BSI CMOS compact superzoom/Android smart device hybrid. It combines a 21x, 23-483mmm equivalent zoom camera on the front with a 4.8" touchscreen on the back. It runs Android 4.1 (known as Jelly Bean), the latest version of the operating system and has built-in Wi-Fi. Under the surface, the Galaxy Camera shares most of its key specifications with the company's Galaxy SIII smartphone - with a 1.4GHz quad-core processor at its heart, missing only the ability to make calls.

Our review

Despite mobile connectivity you can't make a phone call with the Galaxy Camera and in terms of image quality it cannot keep up with conventional cameras in its price bracket, or even cheaper models for that matter. However, the ability to install and run hundreds of thousands of apps, good processing power, a very flexible 21x zoom range and a decent built-in flash make it fun to use and a great device for photo-centric smartphone users.

Good for: Any type of connected imaging - the Galaxy camera combines the features and processing power of a current top-of-the-line smartphone with a very flexible zoom range and a decent pop-up-flash.

Not so good for: Anything that requires critical image quality
