3.0 out of 5 stars Feels 'weird', looks 'weird', August 1, 2014
Although I feel like giving 2 starts, I decided to give 3 because this is a rather difficult phone to build accessories to.
The material is plain plastic with no added grip. Durable, but plain boring, similar to the black plastic that cd cases used to have. It doesn't look good or bad; it just covers it.
The lens cap does not have a strap, so you have to hold the lid in your hand or keep it in your pocket while taking pictures, not to mention the risk of losing it.
But the main disadvantage is the lid: it is not active, meaning it doesn't wake up your phone. Using the phone with the lid open is not comfortable at all due to the camera lens (this is not the case manufacturer's fault, but it is still a pain). The clear plastic part that is supposed to be used to answer a call without opening it works only if you apply pressure. And finally, the lid just doesn't close completely as it should.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works perfectly on my Galaxy S4 Zoom,, May 24, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is clearly a weird phone. Very nice features, but weird. And on top of that, ot is a phone that struggles if you use any other brand of microSD on it (learned it the hard way, losing beautiful moments that I had not backed up). You are forced to use Samsung cards on it, and the reason is that it needs a hi quality card to work flawlessly. Samsung cards are definitively on top of everything else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, January 9, 2014

Real plug n' play. Only bad thing is that I had to attach a micro-USB to the adaptor to provide power, but that is my S4 Zoom's fault (some other models don't need this extra power). So this MHL adapter works just fine, displaying my phone's screen on my LCD TV.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding camera on an Android phone, but maybe not for everyone, December 23, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Short one: I love it and got used to its size within a day. Works perfectly (at least for me).

Long one: I read a lot of reviews online before finally buying this 'thing'. Some were neutral, some were not, so I'll try to make this review as useful as possible for those that are still not sure about the S4 Zoom:
-CAMERA: my advice is 'think about priorities'. If taking pictures/videos is your #1 or #2 priority on a cellphone, the s4 Zoom is for you, as you'll get 16MP, optical image stabilization, 10x optical zoom (forget about Nokia's 41MP; that is 'cropping a large image', and no matter how much they try to convince you, it's not the same). You'll love the camera; guaranteed.
-SIZE/SHAPE: I carry it on my (pant) pocket without a problem. It does not look weirder on your pocket than a Galaxy Note. But it is bulky, really bulky when compared to a cellphone (even if compared with a cheap camera). This is the main reason this phone is available only in a few sites and stores. People love thin sleek phones...and hate bricks.
-PROCESSOR/MEM: if pictures/video are not your priority, then you'll not afford spending +$400 on a dual-core device. But let's not get confused: with 1.5 RAM and dual-core, the S4 Zoom handles most activities very well without any lags. However, the S4 Mini will give you the same power, with the same screen size, but without the 'bulk'. Some will rather add some dollars and get an S4.
-FEATURES: it does not have air view, but it does have an IR blast that allows you to control all your old and new TV's, DVD players, Home Theaters, and A/C! it's a great feature, works from 7 meters away, and does not require to enter codes or anything; just select the brand and go!
MY ADVICE: if you like taking pictures/recording video and dual-core is fine for you (or you don't know/care about cores), go to a real store and have a look and feel of the S4 Zoom on your own hands. Tell the salesperson you'll not run away, then put it on your pocket: if you find it too uncomfortable, think twice. If you find it just a little uncomfortable, go ahead and buy one on Amazon!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very cheap, very long, nice-looking...but with slow charge, December 23, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I found them the best-looking USB cables I ever had (and the longest ones, too), and the fact that you get 3 is great. They're 2m (6FT) long, which is very handy. The only problem is they charge your cellphones really slow.
If you don't mind the waiting time, then go get them (they're perfect for overnight charging).

5.0 out of 5 stars Audio+Video, just like if it were HDMI, December 23, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The adapter worked flawlessly on an HP laptop that does not have HDMI output.
I connected this adapter to the DisplayPort output on my laptop, then attached an HDMI cable from the adapter to my LCD TV. It transferred both audio and video without having to install anything or making any weird adjustment on my laptop.

Both the package and the battery itself make you think you wasted your money. but it hasn't dissapointed me so far. So, I gave it 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great price, great quality, February 26, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This tripod has served well its purpose, at least holding a cell phone (using a special holding device for it) and a pocket camera.
I guess I might feel a little nervous attaching a heavy video camera on it (or one of those professional cameras with lenses 10 times larger tahn the camera itself), but I won't, so I really couldn't tell how well the tripod would perform under those extreme conditions.
If you're planning on using it with pocket cameras or medium size profesional cameras, then you'll be safe and happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as expected, February 26, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you pay half the price (or less) of the competition, you know you won't have plane-like materials, or outstanding package.
What you are actually expecting is something that works well. That's it. And that's what you get with this mini tripod.
I actually bought it to put my cell phone on it, take away the mini legs and attach it to a real camera tripod. And everything worked just perfect.
