Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Core issues

I tried the app on a Motorola Atrix, but it seems to be a Samsung-only affair. Still, if you don’t have a suitable handset, not to worry, Samsung is currently bundling the SH100 with a one-year free subscription to Boingo, a wireless Internet provider with thousands of Wi-Fi hotspots available worldwide.

Samsung SH100

Undoubtedly versatile, but somewhat inconsistent in use

Verdict

For its target market the Samsung SH100 camera seems to tick all the boxes. It is a shame that the two main disappointments – responsiveness of the touchscreen and ISO performance – go to the very core of its function. Yet I don’t think these factors are real deal-breakers, especially for a camera that, if you shop around, can be found for nearly half the manufacturer’s asking price. If you’re looking for a highly connected, intuitive compact that won’t break the bank – and you own a compatible Android phone or Tablet – then the Samsung SH100 seems the most obvious and sensible choice. ®
