Sometimes, your smartphone camera just isn't enough for taking great photos and you need a legitimate point and shoot digital camera. It's okay to admit it – that little lens isn't always the best at detecting light, zooming in, or snapping clear pictures, no matter how good it may be at making selfies. If you need to take pictures that your smartphone just can't handle, you need a digital camera – but you probably don't want to pay too much for one.
A little over a year ago, Samsung released the Galaxy Camera, a mash-up of Android and a point-and-shoot (see our Samsung Galaxy Camera video review.) Today, the company is announcing Galaxy Camera 2, a more refined version that's been tweaked to highlight the things customers loved most about the original.
As expected, the Galaxy Camera 2 is faster and more powerful, sporting a quad-core 1.6 GHz processor (up from the dual-core 1.4 GHz chip found in the original) and 2 GB RAM (similar to the original.) Samsung has also increased the battery capacity from 1650 mAh to 2000 mAh, almost a 33% increase.
