Deal: £370 Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom smartphone

I haven't been particularly impressed by the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom smartphone to be honest as the original Galaxy Zoom offers a much better hardware (similar to the Samsung Galaxy S3 ) for a comparable outlay.

Still, if you want to buy an Android-based smartphone with a camera with a physical zoom, there's no other place to go. Get it from eBay for £370 with 370 Nectar points.

The Galaxy Zoom S4 is powered by a dual-core system-on-chip clocked at 1.5GHz with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS. It has 8GB of onboard storage, 1.5GB of RAM, a card reader, a 4.3in Super AMOLED display with a 960 x 540 pixel resolution, Wi-Fi, GPS and a 2.33Ah battery.

In comparison, the Galaxy Zoom has a quad-core Exynos SoC, a more powerful zoom and 4G connectivity. As for the camera itself, it is a 16-megapixel part with a 10x zoom. As you would expect, it has many of the features you'd find on a standalone digital camera like optical image stabilization, autofocus and face/smile detection. Interested?
