2.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic gadget! But rubbish after sales service!, 22 Nov 2012
This review is from: Samsung GC100 Galaxy Camera - White (16MP, 21x Optical Zoom) 4.8 inch LCD (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
Not a lot i can add that hasn't been said already....but it is NOT a phone,it can send and receive texts,but can't make calls.
overall,i am impressed,yes the battery life is probably crap,but as it takes samsung galaxy s3 batteries...just buy a couple,they are dirt cheap! I haven't taken a lot of pictures yet as it's been chucking down with rain every day,but indoors is fine and look good...really my only complaint is that their is no case available,get with it Samsung,why make a great camera then not bother even having a case you can buy!But overall, it's expensive....but it is fantastic fun and in my opinion a good camera.
9/4 2013.
Update....My wife liked this camera so much she bought one too,and despite hardly using it,the damned thing went very wrong about a fortnight ago. The touch screen wouldn't work and it was basically useless. As she purchased it from Jessops...no joy there! So we phoned Samsung and they insisted on treating it as a phone! So it was duly collected and as i write this it is being tested and we will eventually be told if it can be fixed or not. My point is,i have always liked Samsung but this is shoddy unfair treatment,in fact they even told her if it got lost or broken on the way to them it was her fault!
So my opinion of them has changed radically,and i would advise anyone planning on buying one of these cameras to think twice as Samsung are complete rubbish at pleasant,helpful service! So i am changing my rating,because if it goes wrong you are pretty much screwed!

Yeah,many apoligies it is the galaxy s2 battery,i just believed a review that said it was the s3! sorry to mislead anyone...i have now ordered a spare battery and a separate charger so i have spares. Just bear in mind that a few shops will tell you things that aren't true,such as it's also a phone! it's still a fantastic gadget though.

No worries.
Can you please check of there is audio noise during video recording when you take zoom to maximum and then decrease zoom a bit then stop altering zoom then changing zoom again during video recording does it give audio distortion and noise during recording. Thanks

Hi Chris,to be honest i'm still finding my feet with the camera,i haven't used it much yet,but i put the sim card in and followed the instructions,then put a tenner on...which i haven't used at all yet! So.basically i'd say you can put ten quid or up on as per you needing it! Hope that(sorta) helps. steve.

With Android and 3G inside, it makes me wonder why they didn`t just "bite the bullet" and include phone function. surely they could have fitted it in..
