If you’re not paying attention to the details you might think that the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is a Samsung Galaxy S 4, with a zoom lens. This is not true! The Zoom and the GS4 have a lot in common (like materials, overall design, software, etc.), but not that many as Samsung wants you to think. To be quite honest, the Zoom has more in common with the Galaxy Camera and the S4 mini. Actually, it’s an S4 mini with a zoom lens, but that wouldn’t have sounded that good in the marketing department.
So who is the S4 Zoom for? If your shooting needs are limited to snapping a couple of shots in bright, sunny outdoors, where you can get close to your subject, it’s definitely not for you. However, check out the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom vs Samsung Galaxy S 4 video below to see how it compares to its bigger brother, the Samsung flagship for 2013!
