Samsung L310W Reviews

Pocket-Lint reviews the Samsung L310W and writes;
“The good: Features, ease of use, price (for feature set). The bad: Poor high ISO noise performance, bland styling, fiddly zoom control. Verdict: It may be lackluster in the styling department but providing you keep to lower ISOs is capable of great results”
Rating: ★★★★☆

TechTree reviews the Samsung L310W and writes;
“Pros: 13MP, build, macro mode performance, advanced features like smile and blink detection. Cons: Overall image quality, noise suppression could have been better, ISO 3200 is of no use, expensive”
Rating: ★★½☆☆ reviews the Samsung L310W and writes;
“Samsung have packed in a wide range of features and managed to keep the cost very low. Perhaps this has meant one or two too many compromises in over all quality, because the L310W struggled with my test photo opportunities.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

PCWorld reviews the Samsung L310W and writes;
“Pros: Packed with features; face detection; dual image stabilisation. Cons: Slow to start up; slow autofocus; control buttons difficult to read, no shutter or aperture priority modes. Overall: Good-looking ultra-compact with a wide range of features and good image quality”
Rating: ★★★★☆

TrustedReviews reviews the Samsung L310W and writes;
“its build-quality, overall performance and especially its low-light focusing are impressive, and the optional manual exposure is a welcome bonus, it’s hard to recommend the L310W as a useful camera based on its unimpressive image quality.”
Rating: ★★★★☆
