Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"+ easy to use+ good video quality+ great zoom+ wi-if makes it very convenient to backup and share photos- picture quality could be better (especially indoors)- auto mode doesn't always choose the best mode for the light- battery life not great"
_
"Great options to play around, not too difficult to master and having a pocket camera with a 21x zoom I just couldn't ask for anything more... but...but... Every time you pick up the camera for a quick pic, the battery is dead."
_
"Its like having two smartphones, you just cannot forget to recharge it every night while traveling, and if you leave it unattended at home and a UFO parks in your backyard, sorry, the battery will be dead."
_
"A firmware update immediately fixed the battery problem."
_
"I find its battery is *always* dead when I pull out the camera to use it."
_
"There are dozens of posts on dpreview from other owners who echo this problem; the battery only lasts 1-2 days, even after its firmware is updated."
_
"I bought the extra battery and found it well worth the cost during my trip."
_
"I do recommend purchasing an extra battery, especially if you plan on taking a lot of pictures."

_
"Now, bought a new one, because the features are great and the camera is really fantastic... second disapointment:On arrival everything looks great... charged the battery... took 10 pictures..."

Flash

Flash:
"The first one in Portugal on November and it came with a flash problem (not sync with the shutter) and I was refunded they couldn't fix it."
_
"I have read several reviews of other cameras where people were frustrated that the flash placement was inconvenient and it often did not work because it popped up under their hand automatically."
_
"When using the smart setting, I have not been able to figure out how to set the flash so that it is always on."
_
"Flash: When I read up on the WB750, many complained that the flash pops up under your thumb and you must get used to it and keep your thumb out of the way."
_
"The flash is very bright which is GREAT for a small point & shoot."
_
"Cause some times it would be nice for the camera to make the flash come out."
_
"In the few instances that I did use the flash, pictures were bright and exposure was perfect."
_
"The flash seems to be pretty powerful for a small camera."
_
"Both at the graduation and Disneyland I was amazed at the pictures I took that required no flash."

"The WiFi is not reliable, I have not been able to upload more than 1 photo at a time."
_
"Great options to play around, not too difficult to master and having a pocket camera with a 21x zoom I just couldn't ask for anything more... but...but... Every time you pick up the camera for a quick pic, the battery is dead."
_
"It caused them to think that their own camera's photo quality wasn't as good, but it was actually just a difference in the display itself."
_
"Photo and video software not compatible with Mac5."
_
"At 4mb per photo average, that's almost 16,000 pictures remaining so the remaining photo counter is not accurate with a 64GB card."
_
"The only problem is my old photo browsing program won't display the new embedded location data so I will need to upgrade that program."
_
"Downloads pics slowly even when on excellent WiFi signal."
_
"Take great video and the photo are okay when you are capturing them during a shoot."
_
"You can't see the subjects you are taking a photo of - so, you press the button and hope the shot is good."
_
"Also, because the Samsung's 21x zoom is so much greater than the G12's 5x, I was able to capture many more pics from a distance."
_
"The best part if you have a Samsung smart tv, you can view your pics through Wfi."
