If you love your smartphone’s camera, and want to take things up a notch, the Galaxy Camera is perfect for you.

We took the Samsung Galaxy camera for a test drive to find all that out. And as usual, one of you will get extremely lucky and win this $430 camera for free!

At the end of this review, you’ll also have a chance to win a camera for yourself!
“Does your phone have a camera on it?” said no one since 2005. Nobody even asks how many megapixels your phone’s camera has anymore. With the ubiquity of smartphones today, and the resolution of the cameras they have in them, why does anyone even sell a point-and-shoot digital camera anymore? All you need is a decent smartphone to take your vacation pictures and click a button to upload them to Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr, wherever.
