Samsung i70 Reviews
Cameras.uk reviews the Samsung i70 and writes;
“What I like about the i70 is it’s super slinky design and range of multimedia features. I was also impressed by the accuracy of colours in the colour chart test. The portrait test produced good results, but results of the landscape mode and ISO test were disappointing and the camera sometimes struggles to achieve a sharp result.
ePhotozine reviews the Samsung i70 and writes;
“The Samsung Digimax i70 is a stylish and smart camera. It has a sliding body and can also be used as an MP3 player. As far as Im concerned that is probably the end of the good news! Sorry I just didnt get on with this camera and a number of picture quality issues arose during my testing.”
