PCMAG reviews the Canon PowerShot ELPH 320 HS / IXUS 240 HS and writes;
“The Canon PowerShot Elph 320 HS uses the technology effectively, although it is a bit tedious to manually select and transfer files to your phone or PC. The fact that image quality is very good—much better than your run-of-the-mill smartphone—doesn’t hurt either. If you aren’t the type of shooter who adjusts camera settings and can live with the 5x zoom lens, the 320 HS is a great option.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

CNET reviews the Canon PowerShot ELPH 320 HS / IXUS 240 HS and writes;
“Between ISO 100 and 400, the 240HS does its best work. At ISO 800, detail begins to be traded away for a small amount of digital haze. The deterioration is markedly more evident at ISO 1600, but if you’re of the mindset that using the flash is akin to trading away all the tea in India for one smelly, moulding pea, then it’s perfectly usable for a 6×4-inch prints and tablet, TV or computer display.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Techradar reviews the Canon PowerShot ELPH 320 HS / IXUS 240 HS and writes;
“The responsive shutter, cracking lens and great performance at higher ISO settings are huge plus points. The build quality is also pleasing and the camera really does look rather smart.”
