The Samsung Galaxy Camera 3G is a 16MP BSI CMOS compact superzoom/Android smart device hybrid. It combines a 21x, 23-483mm 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 being a first generation product the Samsung Galaxy Camera works surprisingly well. The camera interface could be a little sleeker and more responsive and the image quality is average at best but the huge number of available apps, the smoothness of Android 4.1, the excellent screen and the flexible zoom range make up for these flaws. The Galaxy Camera is a great device for those who are planning to make good use of its connectivity features and have $600 to spend. If apps and data connection are not a priority you can find better image quality and camera control at a cheaper price.
