How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

With image quality on par with a sub-$200 camera (and inferior performance), you'll probably be better off buying a separate camera and smartphone. There's clearly appeal to having a two-in-one device like the K Zoom, and while Samsung's made progress here, the hybrid Galaxy isn't quite ready for prime time.
