Yes I agree with you. Seems the review is either bias or they don't know the specs at all. Even for taking photo or video, WG1 has 2 types vs Olympus TG-810 only have one. The reception in land and under water is totally different. The video recording and modes for pentax WG1 has more modes options than TG-810

Isn't it strange that this WG-1 gets a worse score than the W90 that it comes to replace? Isn't there some error, somewhere?
And there is a version with GPS also, even if the value of such GPS devices is highly overrated IMHO
