    CONTEST: Win A Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom for Christmas!

    Christmas is just around the corner, and we’ve got an amazing giveaway for you!

    It’s the holiday season, and whether you’re celebrating with the family or planning a New Year’s getaway one thing is for sure – you’ll need a phone and a camera to stay connected with your loved ones!

    So instead of lugging around a phone, camera, tablet, and laptop around with you, all you will need now is a Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom which combines both the functionalities of a smartphone and the benefits of having a proper camera with up to 10x Optical Zoom, instead of the regular phone cameras that have limited capabilities.

    It’s also got a multitude of cool functions and our favourite is the Photo Suggest which shows you pictures that have been taken at the location by other people before you, so you can decide which is the best angle to take a photo with the Eiffel Tower for example.

    The Smart Mode in Light Trace will also allow you to take gorgeous shots with fireworks or a hand sparkler for creative pictures that will definitely impress your friends and family! And that’s not all, there are 24 other options in Smart Mode to make sure your pictures are unique and look the absolute best!

    VENUSBUZZ x SAMSUNG GALAXY S4 ZOOM CONTEST

    Absolutely need a new phone and camera? Well, because it’s time to celebrate the year end and we’re feeling extra generous, VenusBuzz and Samsung will be giving away one (1) Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom worth RM1,699 to a lucky reader in this simple competition!

    All you need to do is follow @VenusBuzz on Instagram, and post a photo and caption on what Talk, Zoom or Share means to you! Be sure to tag us @VenusBuzz, and hashtag #mys4zoom and #VenusBuzz, and also ensure that your privacy setting is set to public (or else we won’t be able to see it).

    The contest will run from November 26 to December 10, and the winner must collect the phone from our office in Petaling Jaya by December 20. The winner will be announced on our VenusBuzz Facebook page, so make sure to follow us there to see if you’ve won.
