Following up on its announcement earlier this week, AT&T has started offering the Galaxy S4 zoom for $ 199 with a two-year contract. The smartphone/camera mash-up will set you back a full $ 529 if you’re looking to buy without a contract, or $ 25 per month if you want to finance with AT&T Next. For that money you’ll be getting the point-and-shoot camera style 16MP sensor along with 10x optical zoom and a camera-centric design with a physical shutter button.
On the phone side, you’ll be looking at a Samsung experience with most of the latest features, although some have been scaled back a tad for the lower-end internals. That’s the tradeoff you’ll make for some great picture and video quality, and for the right user it might be worth a look.
