The manual was one of the first versions of the Samsung S4 Zoom to become available on the internet. The phone since then has been one of the best sellers for Samsung and it was a good phone to bring to market. If you want to know more about the phone then see the user manual below.

You can also find the Samsung USB driver on this website. At first look not even I was sure what the phone was suppose to be. It was a camera + mobile phone all wrapped into one. It is this feature which has made the phone a best seller as it was very unique in design. I have never been a heavy follower of Android as it to me always appeared so much slower than the Windows operating system from Nokia or the mobile phone simply did not have enough power to push the OS to its max.

 

Connecting to Wi-Fi

If you want to use the Internet or share stuff with other devices, make sure to hook up your device to a Wi-Fi network. Turning Wi-Fi on and off: To switch your Wi-Fi on or off, just swipe down to open the notifications panel, and then tap the Wi-Fi button.

Using Wi-Fi in Europe: Your device is good to go for indoor Wi-Fi action in all European countries. However, don’t take it outdoors, okay? Saving battery by turning off Wi-Fi: When you’re not using Wi-Fi, it’s smart to turn it off. This helps save your device’s battery.

Joining Wi-Fi networks: Go to the Applications screen, then tap Settings → Connections → Wi-Fi. After that, slide the Wi-Fi switch to the right. Look for a Wi-Fi network from the list, type in the password if needed, and tap Connect. Networks that need a password will have a lock icon. Once you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network, your device will automatically connect to it whenever it’s around

Adding Wi-Fi networks: If the Wi-Fi network you want isn’t showing up on the list, hit the “Add Wi-Fi network” at the bottom. Type in the network name under “Network SSID,” choose the security type, put in the password if it’s not an open network, and then tap “Connect.”

Forgetting Wi-Fi networks: You can make your device forget any network it has ever connected to, even the one you’re currently on. Just pick the network from the list and tap “Forget.” This way, your device won’t automatically reconnect to it.

 

Setting up accounts

Using Google and Samsung Apps: If you want the best experience with your device, you’ll need a Google account for Google applications like the Play Store and a Samsung account for Samsung Apps.

Adding accounts: When you open a Google app without signing in, follow the on-screen instructions to set up a Google account. To sign in or sign up for a Google account, go to Settings → Accounts → Add account → Google on the Applications screen. Tap “New” to sign up or “Existing” if you already have one, and follow the on-screen instructions to finish setting up your account. You can use more than one Google account on your device.

Don’t forget to set up a Samsung account too!

This S4 Zoom came out with a Pega-Dual +XMM6262 chipset and a camera second to none being a 16MP BSI CMOS with a Flash built in. It also came with BT 4.0, WiFi a/b/g/n 2.4G/5GHz, NFC and the usual GPS abilities. The phone is a water down version of its big brother being the Samsung NX which is a much better camera and mobile device in my view.
