I’ve seen tons of videos and images taken from the Lumia 1020 posted in different websites and Youtube, which really excites me as a camera aficionado. The Lumia 1020 was even compared to DSLR’s and proved itself that size doesn’t matter. But I still I cannot praise the Lumia 1020 until I’ve gotten a chance to use it personally and scrutinize its capabilities.
Recently, I came across the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom and suddenly that eagerness to own a Lumia 1020 came to a halt. I never really considered owning this mobile phone, but when I was given the opportunity, all my doubts were erased. This camera phone really impressed me right after trying its camera, mainly due to its 16MP sensor which is quite a big deal for a mobile phone. Images are crisp with strobe flash which comes useful when you are out with your colleagues and clubbing with your friends. Admittedly, the S4 zoom is not as handy or slim as other mobile phones, but considering the quality of pictures it churns out, its size and weight are easily forgivable.
There’s still a lot of things to discover about the S4 Zoom. I’ll post a more detailed review soon.
