Looking forward to more powerful Tizen phones. I have a Samsung Z3 Tizen phone and it works fine, given the low specs it works just as well as Android if not better. The only issue is the lack of a few key apps. I don't use it as my daily driver yet as Line Messenger is still not available (though it is available on the Samsung Z2 I hear.
Stop with the negativity - the only people complaining about Tizen phones are people who don't read or investigate their purchases and expect an Android phone with the Google Play store.
Otakusoldaten, 27 Jan 2017Jolla?are you kidding?Sailfish OS is way better when it comes to functionality and intuitive u... moreYeah Sailfish OS 2.0 better than Tizen anyday. Jolla must release a major software update now.
Jolla?are you kidding?Sailfish OS is way better when it comes to functionality and intuitive user interface.And it keeps even more improving.
Shaun Moroz, 26 Jan 2017Android Wear is doing a comeback with Android Wear 2.0, and I'm sure it'll improve even more. ... moreIt does trust me, I had tried out a Z2 and seriously its awful and if you go visit the Z2 page you will see what others think and a vast majority think it should be taken off sale its that bad.
Needless to say I had a Z2 for a week and sold it on to some poor soul that will get mad just as I did.
Anonymous, 26 Jan 2017Come back that never happens. Go die android!It'll actually happen soon. LOL
Android won't die anytime. Go back to your pathetic iOS or Tizen.
Julliard, 26 Jan 2017Actually Tizen already won. Samsung smartwatches are way better than any android smartwatches ... moreAndroid Wear is doing a comeback with Android Wear 2.0, and I'm sure it'll improve even more. Google is taking Android Wear seriously, and has even acquired companies to help design and develop the OS. Tizen is nice on Samsung's watches, but on phones, it will absolutely suck and fail.
I don't know if anyone at GSMA reads these comments or not but still:
The writers should get their facts right before posting anything. The latest Tizen smartphone is Samsung Z2 (1st with 4G) released at some point in the 4
3rd quarter of 2016 and the latest Tizen OS version is 2.4.x.x and not 2.3.2.
There have been atleast ~5 updates after 2.3.2.
Tizen cannot compete with Android
Tizen should have inbuilt android player which can run apk files
Tizen should find more OEM... i really wish Jolla, AnTu and few other experimental Mobile Phone Makers should consider Tizen
Samsung should release a high end experimental device like how Nokia released Lumia 1020. the app gap was huge when L1020 came out but still it shot out to fame
likely, Samsung should try Galaxy T8 which is an equivalent of S8
Tizen T8 with Amazon Prime/Amazon Appstore would be a great advantage in the market
Anonymous, 25 Jan 2017Wait, did google copy Samsung's launcher from Tizen? HahahaTo simply put. Yes, they did. When I first look at the Pixel launcher with the slide up for all the apps, I instantly thought it looks like Tizen's launcher.
There should be complete android phone with
1. 6 inch Super Amoled HD display
2. A primary camera with 23 megapixel with 3840 x 2160 resolution (~806 ppi pixel per inch) and seconday camera with 20 megapixel selfie flash with 2160 x 3840 resolution (~820 ppi pixel per inch)
3. A battery of 7000 mAh and Android 7.0 operating system
4. With 8GB RAM and 256ROM and expandable memory of 256GB
5. Octa Core (2.3 GHz, Quad Core + 1.6 GHz, quad core)
6. Waterproof, scratchproof and dust resistant with corning gorilla glass 4.
Just because an OS doesn't have apps, it doesn't mean the OS is bad. Android gained a huge popularity among developers. Terms and regulations for Android is becoming stricter and stricter. So it is natural for a company to have backup plan. Most companies will rely on a third party OS like Windows 10 Mobile or Ubuntu Mobile. Samsung will have their own OS.
Shaun Moroz, 25 Jan 2017LOL I can't wait for this OS to fail. Manufacturers, seriously, stop creating your own opera... moreActually Tizen already won. Samsung smartwatches are way better than any android smartwatches out there. No one can deny it. Latest news even said HTC's android watch project is dead. Lol. Android wear is dying.
Tizen is actually pretty good. And what samsung wants to do with its money is its right.
Oh wow I have never seen a Tizen phone in the wild but now Sammy is already on version 3.0.
Apple playing sue and lawsuit, while Samsung playing monopoly so the Tizen is on the road but still early like a newbie.
I really like my Z2, it is very fast phone but lack of apps and some apps don't run properly but still it's better than Windows Mobile that i ever tried ( Windows Mobile is more buggy than Tizen, performance is even worse and i'm done with Windows Mobile.)
Spotify is there on Tizen TV and Smartwatch
Netflix is there on Tizen TV
But those apps unavailable on Tizen Phones
C'mon Sammy, if those apps available on Tizen i might switch to Tizen ( i don't care about game but there is a lot game on Tizen)
