What is an unlocked phone?
An unlocked phone is a device that is not bound to any carrier or plan. It allows you to choose your phone first and your carrier second. Upon selecting a plan, simply insert the carrier's SIM card into the phone and you're ready to go. If you decide you want to change carriers down the road or want to take an international trip, it's as simple as replacing your existing SIM card with a new SIM and activating your new plan.
What are the benefits of an unlocked phone?
Freedom: Choose the carrier with the best service or price. If you find a better deal later, you have the ability to change to a different carrier.
Travel: Take your phone internationally and use the carrier of your choice. It's as easy as inserting an active SIM card.
Selection: Choose the phone with the features you want, whether or not your carrier sells it, and get more service options without a contract.
How do I set up my unlocked phone?
The first thing you’ll need is a SIM card for your desired carrier. When activated, the SIM card will let your phone connect to your carrier’s network. If you decide to upgrade to a newer unlocked phone in the future, you can easily remove the SIM card from your old phone and put it in your new phone—just make sure you get the right size of SIM card (nano, micro, or standard) for your phone. If you want to use your phone while traveling internationally, you can easily buy a SIM card for a carrier that operates where you’re traveling. As long as it’s activated, you can just swap SIM cards when you arrive at your destination.

I'm sure you can find all the specs and un-boxing videos as well as picture quality reviews and so on all over the internet, so I won't waste your time typing about that. Instead I'll talk about my personal user experience and you can relate to it or not.
I took the GS4-Z (or "Ph-amera") for a spin when my wife decided to take us on a mini 5 day vacation. I have to say, this thing is pretty useful. It takes quality photos and at the same time, you can share the pictures with your personal network without having to upload it to a computer or swapping micro SD cards (Although swapping can preserve image quality). If you share images on Whatsapp or other messenger, the quality of the photos will decrease due to their file size limitation. Instead, I chose to send them through email, and they turned out very good. The 10x's optical zoom is great, just be sure to keep your hand steady or place the gadget on a tripod. NOTE: Don't plan on standing this on it's side like a common compact camera to take timed shots, as the curves make it impossible to position it like so without some type of assistance.
The camera is heavier and thicker than your average modern smartphone, so be prepared to have this brick swinging in your pocket should you decide to run. I'd say it's just about as heavy as the Galaxy Note 2. I wore the S4 Zoom around my neck with a metal camera lanyard (wrapped in clear rubber), and it worked out very nicely. I hear people complain about the plastic body, but the weight gives it a "quality" feel. Battery life is great when using it as a phone. You will however notice a drain if the back facing camera is used a lot. I'm planning to purchase a 2nd removable battery as a backup, so I'm not too worried.
If you're planning on using this on a car dash/window mount as a GPS or small viewing screen, start planning on doing heavy modifications or forget it at all. The lens on the phone (as thick as about 3 s4 minis) makes it really hard to fit on standard mounts. Again, I just used my neck lanyard (If you don't mind the occasional swing) on the rear view mirror, and it was fine. Just adjust it a bit shorter, or it'll crash into your window if you happen to slam on the brakes.
This device is definitely for a target audience. Currently the GS4 Zoom only comes in white, and although I enjoy the screen quality, many will not be pleased with the resolution provided. If you like thin light phones, this is definitely not it. There are many people that say this device is ugly, but I've handed this over to people to take our photo and they were intrigued! I've heard comments like sleek, nice, different, and very useful to name a few.
I'd recommend this camera to anyone on a budget,who no longer wants to carry a compact camera and a smartphone at the same time. You could get the Nokia Lumia 1020 ($700-$1000 No contract/Unlocked price estimate as of 8/2013), but for $400, the GS4 Zoom is a great quality buy at about half the price of the Lumia 1020.
It is an Android phone with a 10x zoom camera. So compromises were made on each side. But the compromises were sound in my opinion.
I've had it a day. I've put it through the paces.
As an (I guess I must admit) "aging" technology fan I am able make a broader comparison of this device.
Compared to my first mobile phone from 1996 which was a brick that cost a fortune this device is a relative peanut -- and a power-packed peanut, at that.
To make another comparison, the form factor of this device is about the same as the Palm Treo I had about 10 years ago. I was never really able to get the Treo to work well.
This device I was able to get in full operation (using a micro SIM and StraightTalk service) in about an hour. Then I spent another hour (or two or three) marveling at all of its features/functions and the really superb quality/capability of the camera.
It is a very good smartphone with Android OS -- fully functional. Easy to use. Fast in operation. It is to my observation no slower than my Samsung GT-N5100 Note -- which is very fast. Compared to the Samsung SCH-738C that it replaced it is a racer.
I'm a guy who was carrying a phone and a camera around. So I'm glad to have the option of the two devices combined into one device. I was sick and tired of taking bad smartphone photos and/or trying to find the best Android camera app (which I really never did find).
The camera is -- well, it is a good point-and-shoot camera. It takes better quality pictures than any smartphone I've used; it takes pictures that are as good as any of the mid-range point-and-shoot cameras that I own (but now have the option of not having to carry around with me).
Summing up the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom: It is chunky (again, think Palm Treo). But it is a smartphone and camera -- powerful and fun.
The battery life will need to be managed attentively; but you can charge this device like any mobile phone (I keep a charger in the car and in just about every room where the device goes).
It will need a suitable case -- I'm looking for that item. Suggestions?
