Galaxy S4 Zoom Cons:

A look at where Samsung Zoom brings up a question mark

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is not just a smartphone, it is a half in part, fully featured digital compact camera.  Hence the makers  should had reduced the optical zoom to 4-6x, kept the aperture as small as they could and created a smaller brick like camera phone. Using the screen with the giant lens projection on the rear is not comfortable at all when picking it up with one hand as it is essential to have a grip while clicking photographs.

Secondly screen measuring only to 4.3 inch span looks a bit unmatchable to the way Samsung has promoted its fully loaded camera feature aspect. It also promotes the internal memory to be 8Gb but users has available space of only 5Gb, hence this makes us think why compromise on the internal memory of fully loaded smartphone. Having a power blast music player with qualified music experiences the loudspeaker is still like the average smartphone.


Well its needless to say that every Smartphone has its ups and downs, the same might be with S4 Zoom but going with the ways it is packaged, the end result would be in the hands of the users. If you’ve come across any cons or problem with Galaxy S4 Zoom, post about it in the comments below.
