Samsung launched the Galaxy S4 zoom last year, to place their bets on the cameraphone market. It didn’t work out so well, as the S4 zoom was basically two devices slapped on together. The sequel announced this year, the Galaxy K zoom, is visibly better, with a slimmer profile and a lens unit that is more pocketable. The megapixels are higher and the phone itself gets a decent spec boost, but does Samsung get the formula right this time? Or is the company going to need a third time lucky? Let’s find out in our full review.
The Samsung Galaxy K Zoom we unboxed earlier is the successor to the Galaxy S4 Zoom, which was not really the best implementation of a camera phone.

It’s well established that the Zoom series of devices will be Samsung’s camera flagships and it continues with the K Zoom, with its upgraded 20 megapixel sensor and slightly newer optics. Considering the importance of the device’s camera, we assume you are interested in taking a look at full resolution samples from this device, so the article will precisely focus on that, read on.
