Samsung Galaxy Camera good for bloggers, first of all we’ll  check about the spec of this device Super Clear LCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors, 720 x 1280 pixels, 4.8 inches, Corning Gorilla Glass 2. Display Seems awesome and the color also cools. Internal 8GB Memory but 2.8GB Only usable memory card supports up to 64GB and with 2GB Ram card.  Supported with wifi so we can easily sync our image to our PC or can upload it to the web. Now about Camera Quality 16.3 MP, 4608×3456 pixels, autofocus, 21x optical zoom, optical image stabilization, pop-up Xenon flash, AF light, Video Recording 1080p@30fps, 512p@120fps, Running OS, Android Jelly Bean 4.3, Quad core 1.6 GHz, Accelerometer, Gyro, Compass Sensors available. The main thing is this Device got a major size display.

Overall, this device looks cool only issues with internal memory and the 16.3 MP Lens, Because now Sony Z1 Compact (Prev Post) Smartphones got 20.7 MP Camera Lens so here we gets only 16.3 MP lens mean not much enough. Other than that, this smart cam is awesome overall made with plastics (some parts seem like metal, but all the body parts made with plastic).
