Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom

With its bulky point-and-shoot camera shape and 10x optical zoomSamsung‘s Galaxy S4 Zoom makes for a ridiculously shaped smartphone that defies pocketability. But the mashup device sure can shoot.

In fact, its image quality is on par with a good point-and-shoot camera, and its optical zoom makes it a more flexible camera than any other smartphone’s. Unfortunately, the Zoom’s awkward and uneasy design disrupts the phone’s day-to-day functionality on a fundamental level, even if you’re not holding it up to your ear.

Despite its strong photography skills, the Zoom — which has no U.S. carrier partner (or pricing) yet — is floundering for an audience. Nokia’s smaller 41-megapixel Lumia 1020 edges the Zoom in pure image quality, and casual shooters who aren’t willing to give up the convenience of a pocket phone will be happier with the 13-megapixel Samsung Galaxy S4 or 8-megapixeliPhone 5.
