Samsung Galaxy K Zoom

Samsung Galaxy K Zoom

Samsung’s best camera phone.

For those who are searching for a smartphone that physically doubles as a zooming camera, the new Samsung Galaxy Z Zoom is a great option. This is not the first phone specifically geared towards photography created by Samsung. Last year, the company took a foray into this market with the Samsung S4 Zoom. Both models are seen to operate under the same principle; to provide the user with the ability to enjoy a “hands-on” camera within what is essentially the package of the Galaxy phone.

As the name hints, the defining characteristic of this model is a large zoom lens which physically protrudes from the back when activated. As this lens offers an impressive 10x magnification, it is excellent for those who wish to enjoy the optical features of a normal camera within a slender smartphone. Having said this, the addition of the collapsible lens contributes to the thickness of this model; nearly twenty millimeters at the aperture (when closed) and over sixteen millimeters elsewhere. Thankfully, the lens is coated with “Gorilla Glass” to keep it safe from scratches and other damage.

Of course, Samsung had to do away with several features that are included as standard in their S5 series. These include fingerprint sensing and overall waterproofing. Still, this model is highly water resistant although if it is submerged, grave consequences will likely occur. Notwithstanding these two differences, the Samsung Galaxy K Zoom offers a convenient side flap for a MicroSD card (ideal when one is taking many pictures) and its 4.8-inch screen is impressive considering the massive accordion lens on the obverse side. A 720p resolution is slightly lower than the 1080p that the S5 offers and this may be slightly different for those who are used to the clarity of similar models such as the Motorola Moto G. For Samsung fans, the screen is quite similar to the S3 line.

In terms of processing power, the K Zoom runs off of the same Android operating system that was introduced in the S5 phones. Several adjustments have been made such as adding an extra home screen and a scrolling list of settings. A six-core processor allows for adequate performance speeds and its battery life is comparable to that of the S4.

Of course, the main feature of the K Zoom is its optical capabilities. For those who are searching for a photographically oriented smartphone with adequate processing power, the Samsung Galaxy K Zoom may be the ideal choice.
