Samsung Galaxy NX

If you ever watched Flight of the Concords and wanted to stick together your mobile phone and digital camera, then the Samsung Galaxy NX might be for you, it’s got a large 4.77inch touch screen on the back, runs the latest version of Android, and on the front features the Samsung NX mount, with a 20.3 megapixel APS-C sensor inside. It’s also £1299 with 18-55mm lens, for the same price you could buy the Samsung NX20 (£470 with Wi-Fi), and a Samsung Galaxy S4 sim free (£438, with larger screen, and the ability to make phone calls), and you’d have around £391 left over… which you could spend on some lenses, a second mobile phone, an ipad mini, a laptop, hell, a whole host of things… anyway, I digress. Here’s a roundup of reviews of the Samsung Galaxy NX (I’ve converted them all to % for ease of scoring comparisons):
