Conclusion

The Nikon S800c is an interesting hybrid of connected mobile device and traditional compact camera. The end result is a capable, but far from inspiring product which offers a lot of potential but not without some frustrations. Battery life is very poor, responsiveness isn't what we've come to expect (Android's 30 second startup time doesn't help) and image quality is only so-so.

Reasons to buy

  • Android ecosystem adds thousands of ways to edit and share
  • 10X, 25 - 250 mm zoom lens in a small, stylish package
  • Sharp and vivid 3.5in touchscreen OLED display
  • Fast AF, shot-to-shot speeds
  • Built-in Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth
  • Automatic scene selection when in Easy Auto mode

Things to consider

  • Mediocre photo quality; photos are soft and noisy, with strong highlight clipping at times
  • Terrible battery life
  • Wi-Fi has very poor reception, occasional connection problems
  • Buggy playback mode sometimes displayed photos out of order, or not at all
  • Camera not fully functional until Android is booted
  • Running outdated version of Android

Suggested for

The connected photographer will love having almost all of the functionality of a modern smartphone, attached to a much better lens and sensor.

Not suggested for

Anything where you need endurance or critical image quality. The connectivity options are great, but overall, the sluggish S800c feels like a compromise.

Color: Black
One of the most interesting features of this camera would have been a direct upload of photos via WI-FI to Picasa or other services. Unfortunately, you can effectively do it only one picture at the time. As soon as the screen goes off to standby, it loses the WiFi connection and the uploads stop.

So, if you are buying this camera for that feature - then don't. It is much faster to pull out the memory card, plug it into your computer and upload the photos then re-establishing WI-FI connection after every uploaded photo. There are really no other advantages of this camera. The fact that it has Android system doesn't add much to the overall functionality.

In addition to that - the battery time is pathetic.

****** UPDATE after 2 months of use
By now other reviewers described all the issues with this camera. After 2 months of use, I can confirm that the camera is just not ready for prime-time. In fact, after working with camera for a while, taking it on couple of holiday trips, I am considering ditching it and getting a different model. Things that I have issues with (some more, some less important)

* Wi-Fi continues to be dysfunctional. In addition to losing connection when in standby mode, the reception is just pathetic. You need to be in the same room as the hot-spot. Forget about uploading photos at the end of the day on hotel (for example) Wi-Fi network. The whole experience is so frustrating and takes such a long time, that having extra memory cards and uploading photos later with PC is so much quicker and easier.

* Battery time is quite bad. Battery won't take you through the day, which is really a shame when you are traveling and you want snap pictures.

With the only review available, it was a little bit tough in making a decision buying the s800c, with it being the first phone with an Android operating system inside. Even though it is only running android version 2.3 (Gingerbread), it's smooth as hell, and sometimes you will forget that this was originally a camera. I caught myself treating it like my Samsung Epic Touch 4G, and with that note, taking pictures is so easy and once you take a picture, you can run any photo editing app (Instagram for one), and do whatever you gotta do right there on the spot. Why didn't they think of this sooner??? I think that cameras are deserving of an operating system, and in this case, the s800c runnign Android is a match made in Heaven!

Now that I have the camera, I do not know why the above reviewer got a 'grey market' item. Crutchfield.com makes a big fuss about how they DO NOT sell grey/gray market items, and this Nikon was up for sale on their site. So I took the plunge here on Amazon, and could not been happier. I was researching cameras for about a year before actually buying one, and the timing couldn't have been more perfect. I heard that the Galaxy Camera will come out soon, but I believe that it will be tied to a carrier.

In any case, as long as you are not an elitist photographer, this sexy little beast (mines white) will satisfy. Picture quality is good and especially in low light conditions. Lot's of fun modes, but now this is moot because now you have access to the Google Play store, in which a lot of photo editing apps are available. I really recommend Picsay Pro though. It reminds me more of photoshop than the actual photoshop app does lol!

October1 16, 2012 - I can't leave this cammera alone!!! First time ever that I spend or put so much attention into a camera lol! This camera is a GO! Go get it!

We bought this camera for a trip to Italy. We were super excited about having maps on the camera instead of having to carry around the paper map. We also wanted to be able to do email while gone without bringing a ton of devices that we would have to keep track of. I added the places we wanted to go to my google places before we left, which you can layer over the maps. Unfortunately, you need wifi to pull those up. You can view the maps offline, but you have to be zoomed in on where you are going before you leave wifi if you want it to be at the level you need to not get lost. Even though it has a few drawbacks, overall, it is a very nifty little camera.

Pros:
- Even though the mobile upload is slow, it works, which was nice when abroad since we only had 1 device.
- Amazing picture clarity even when moving the camera. The clarity when zooming is better than most as well. As a camera it is better than most.
- Touch capture is awesome (focuses where you touch instead of having to hold down the button which always makes me move the camera like crazy)
- Nice to have one device instead of two, especially when traveling internationally where my phone won't work for calls anyway

Cons:
- Battery life drains fast when using wifi
- You can't use the camera while it charges. I found this extremely annoying. We would come back from a day out and want to plug the camera in to charge while using the internet, but you can't use it while it is charging. I've never had a phone/computer/tablet that you couldn't use while charging so I'm not sure why this one won't, but it is extremely annoying. This is the biggest drawback by far. I hope it can be fixed with a software update.
