      Verizon Wireless Samsung Galaxy Camera

      Device

      The Verizon Wireless Samsung Galaxy Camera is the first of its kind. It is an Android powered ??smart?? camera; it runs on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network as well as WiFi where it is available.

      Design

      The Verizon Wireless Samsung Galaxy Camera is a 16 MP Camera with 21X Zoom and image stabilization.

      On the top of the camera is the power button in the middle, the flash is on the left side (when looking at the back of the camera) and the shutter and zoom on the right side. On the left side toward the top is a button to turn the flash on if needed in a pinch. Most of the other controls are right on the screen, as they are with most other Android devices.

      There is 8GB of internal storage built into the camera but it can take up to a 64GB microSD card for storage.

      A great feature is having the ability to take photos and upload them directly to Instagram, Facebook, the cloud, or any other place is that it eliminates the need for the crazy plugs and wires that would be needed with a regular point and shoot camera.

      This camera also gives the full Android experience, if boredom sets in and need something to do, download Angry Birds and play it until that photographic moment hits again. All of the apps that are available in the market to other Android devices are also available on the camera.

      Battery Life

      The Verizon Wireless Samsung Galaxy Camera has a 1650mAh Standard Lithium Ion battery and can last for a few days with moderate use before needing to be recharged.

      Conclusion

      The Verizon Wireless Samsung Galaxy Camera is an amazing camera and has some great features.

      The only thing that would be scary to some is the rather steep price tags that comes along with it, but think of it like this; you get what you pay for, want a nice camera that does everything an Android phone can do, and more? This is the camera that can make it possible.
