that's what I heard. I'm surprised you haven't gone for a G4G. Mindst you, they'll be bringing out the G4H before you know it.

well you've listened to some bad advice mate. 

If I were you I'd hang on until the new Samsung PQ3 comes out.

I shouldn't have let on mate. It's still very much under wraps.

the bad advice was to go down the motorola route. They are a nightmare. Trust me.

I'm thinking of upgrading from the zenith. Any thoughts

Nobody actually advised me, i wanted to spend as little as possible on a "smart phone" and this fitted the bill, it was voted the best budget phone last year, i only need it to make and receive calls and the odd whats app message and i also need it for the GPS

 

This Motorola is ace, battery lasts 3/4 days with my usage, its the only one ive tried which syncs perfectly every time in both of our cars, screen is best in class, so much so both my kids actually agree as well (and kids know, 22 and 19.) 

 

This one flies all over the other halfs Samsung Galaxy for 1/4 the price

 

Why would i pay £600 for a phone when this does everything and more that i need and actually does it faster than the iphone 5S's my kids use, if they werent tied in with contracts they would bail out.

I stopped offering advice about cameras mate, for everyone who advises one thing someone will advise another, no one is right. I switched to Nikon a few years ago after the Canon AF fiasco on the pro bodies and have stuck with them ever since, for a much smaller company they also seem way ahead in bringing tech to the masses.

ah yes the infamous canon AF fiasco. Who could forget it

what do you reckon to the Zenith? I think it's the pinnacle of soviet era precision engineering.

Opposite you can see an early first year issue Zenit-B version in Cyrillic characters. Only these cameras have engraved nameplate markings on the frontplate (silkscreened on late versions).

My first SLR was a cheap second hand Zenith. My dad was a professional photographer and I was interested in following in his footsteps so he got me a Zenith and a light meter for my birthday. We had some great times out snapping and the Zenith produced some quality pics.

 

In the end I went off the rails and became a scientist which I think my dad eventually forgave me for.

I am definitely not qualified to comment I am afraid, my Zenith is long gone to the great camera shop in the sky....it had a good life.

 

These days I use my camera phone and a Panasonic compact camera (which has a nice little Leica lense on it) for my snapping.

 

 

Personally I am sucker for new toys so I would definitely say upgrade, but as to what to upgrade too I haven't a clue I am afraid. I tend to go with Amazon reviews for general guidance when buying 'stuff' but someone with more specialised knowledge will hopefully be along soon.
