Recently I’ve done a review on Best camera phones in Uganda and one of them was Samsung Galaxy K Zoom, so I decided to make a deeper analysis of this phone with specs (read them here: Samsung Galaxy K Zoom specs) and price as well. So let’s begin!

Samsung Galaxy K Zoom Prices in Uganda

Samsung Galaxy K Zoom new smart phone would cost you 1 400 000 UGX. If you don’t have that amount of money, then buy a used phone or even check for previous Samsung phones, which are not very new, but good enough too!

Samsung Galaxy K Zoom


It can be hard to pick out the unique selling point on some phones, but there's no such quandary with the Galaxy K Zoom. The 20.7MP 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor is one of the best around.

Despite all of those megapixels, the sensor at the heart of the handset's camera isn't going to blow other high-end smartphones away for image quality.

First and foremost, there's the 10x optical zoom to let you get closer to the action, whether that's the local flower show or your kid's sports day. That's a big improvement on other smartphones and better than a lot of compacts too.


The Samsung Galaxy K Zoom is the sort of device you might imagine resulting if you put a compact camera and a phone next to each other and pushed them together really hard. It has the dimpled back styling of Samsung’s latest phones, and looks just like a normal phone from the front. But on the back is a giant lens housing that sticks out and alters the weighting of the phone substantially.

Its lens is a key feature – this is one of just a few phones to be released in the UK to feature an optical zoom. It is a 10x optical zoom too, offering the kind of focal range you get in a super zoom compact, not just a bog-standard one.

Battery life

There is one benefit to having internal specifications that are some way short of the very best on the market, and that's superior battery life.
The Galaxy K Zoom does very well in this regard, particularly when it's used just as a phone: a few calls and a bit of web browsing and you'll get well over a day's use out of it, if not two.


The Samsung Galaxy K Zoom has a 4.8-inch screen, and it feels a year or two behind the current top phones. Like the Galaxy S5, the K Zoom uses a Super AMOLED display, but the resolution is 720p rather than 1080p. In an LCD phone a 720p display would offer a pretty sharp image.

Don’t forget to leave me you opinion on this phone. Do you think it is worth that huge amount of money or would you better buy simpler phone and camera separately? ☺
