Yesterday, my wife and I spent the day at the Royal Cornwall Show. I was armed with my Samsung Galaxy K Zoom and my wife with her trusty iPhone 5S. Both good phones for photography.
Apart from the photo taking side, the phones were used throughout the day for all the usual tasks.
Statistics – after 104 photos, the iPhone 5S battery was in a poor state, and to stop it dying completely was put in to flight mode. The Samsung Galaxy K Zoom was up to 500 photos and still had 44% battery. In fact the K Zoom took 700 photos at the show, and by my reckoning it was good for 1,000 shots on a full charge.
Of course, unlike the 5S, the K Zoom is necessary could have been placed into Ultra Power Saving mode to provide another 1.2 days worth of basic smartphone usage.
Photo quality – we were sitting in the grandstand taking photos of the show jumping and driving events. My K Zoom blew the iPhone 5S photos out of the water. I had 680 good shots, which I then narrowed down to the best 150. I have posted a few below.
All I can say, is the K Zoom is an amazing piece of kit. It has weaknesses. But if you always want a photographic or video memory of reasonable quality, this is the phone I would recommend was in your pocket.
