Is this 'Unlocked' OP? .. as I know ASDA have their own ASDA/Orange Network too? (& most Supermarket Network Phones tend to predominantly be 'Locked' to said Network ..... )

Network SIM Free

This is a SUPERB device. The camera is absolutely stunning. Full HD video is stunningly crystal clear.
I can't fault it apart from it's very WIDE for a mobile device.
also some are only 3G not 4G.
BUT this aside, at that price it is a have.
still got mine. and the slimmer new Kzoom.

Even if you were to use it mainly for a camera at this price is a steal!!!

Well I think this is a hot price however battery life is worse than the k zoom which many users report just 1 day of use. If you use the camera then they say you won't get a full days power. The optical zoom is what swings it for those that want this option but for an every day phone I think it won't last and I might wait and buy a second hand one on eBay later this year.

Is this the exact same spec as the normal Galaxy S4 but with a big optical zoom attached?

This is the C101 so 3G-only, the C105 is the 4G one.

As you said, it's a very good camera that happens to have a phone with it - spec-wise it's closest to an S4 mini and a half-decent point and shoot.

I've heard the camera on these isn't any better than many new smartphone built-in cameras.

Optical zoom > cropping (aka - digital zoom) in pretty much all cases except the Nokia Windows phones with crazy high resolution.

Wish I just read this before purchasing

Heat added. Bought the 4G version via a recent HUK deal. Very impressed with it. The 10x optical zoom makes it much more useful as a camera than any smartphone without optical zoom, no matter how good the image quality of an iPhone or whatever may be. Recommended.

Same price from Amazon.

good camera but phone wise it's nothing special, much much weaker than a proper s4. if you want a camera then you can get a better camera than this for less.

I think so too, it only has a dual core CPU!

I was in the market for a new phone cause my Galaxy S4 stopped working.
Resorted back to my dual core Galaxy S2 and it was too slow

Ended up with a quad core Sony M2 Aqua (with 4G) for £125 from Vodafone.

Bought the 4G version also.

So I might have a 3G version for sale if no family members want to buy it.

My girlfriends got this phone and the camera on it really is superb.

You can just cancel the first order surely? or just return the product.

I'm collecting it from ASDA tomorrow so will more than likely just cancel there and then if they accept that. I did a one off check out from ASDA online so cant stop order online.

Very light, Just under 300 grams.

Camera with a built in phone... The ultimate selfie phone

good price

im in two minds... can someone convince me

Good deal for the price but the Nokia 1020 beats the Samsung hands down as an all round camera/phone package. The challenge is in finding one now as they are no longer in production.

Its chunky, like very chunky indeed. The 4G one is excellent on the internet and the camera really is brilliant. Great zoom feature.

If you take a lot of photos then i would really recommend it.

Decent Cameraphone for the price!

It'd be an interesting side by side compare of the results.

To get 10x Zoom on a 41mp image, you'd have to crop to 4.1mp. The s4 Zoom is 16mp. So technically, at 10x zoom on both you'd have 16mp on the s4 vs cropped 4.1mp from the Nokia. So it depends how much optical distortion the lens introduces.

But at half maximum zoom or less, the Nokia may be the better option.

Maybe .... I'm probably over-analysing this given it's still a camera phone, albeit one with better than normal optics ....

Judging by my experience with the Galaxy Camera I assume this is also power hungry.
is the battery replaceable on the S4 Zoom too?

Megapixels mean nothing in photography. its the sensor size that matters. my old Nikon D100 has 6mp and will out perform any smartphone camera

I got my Dad the newer S4 K Zoom model for xmas, works like a charm.

Is this your phone, or you're just happy to see me?
