Samsung Galaxy NX review: an overpriced Android-powered mirrorless camera
Samsung's Galaxy NX may be the first of its kind, but $1,700 is simply too much to shell out for an Android device.
- Impressive battery life
- Global 4G connectivity
- Excellent image quality
- Hybrid autofocus system
- Grossly overpriced
- Buggy photo sharing
Samsung's flagship interchangeable-lens camera, the NX300, is by far the company's most impressive shooter to date. It offers stellar hybrid-autofocus capabilities, excellent image quality and integrated WiFi, and it retails for a hair over $550. For all intents and purposes, it's a very competitive option, if not one of the best deals on the market today. It's frustrating, then, that Samsung opted to price the Galaxy NX -- an Android-powered camera based on the NX300 -- at an obscene $1,700, lens included. If you're not a deep-pocketed early adopter, it's absolutely a dealbreaker. But I still enjoyed my two-week test with the Galaxy NX, and if you manage to overlook the MSRP, you might just fall in love.
