Samsung Galaxy Camera review: a 21x compact shooter brought to life by Android

The Galaxy Camera proves that Android on a point-and-shoot is no gimmick. But until the price drops closer to the level of other compacts, it's not a very practical purchase.

Pros
  • Jelly Bean brings a lot of fun to photography
  • Wide range of connectivity options
  • Good stabilization
Cons
  • Surprisingly big and heavy
  • The 4.8-inch screen drains the battery
  • You can find better image quality for the same price
