It's not Tizen but the same old model design, although i understand your point....
Topspliff , 27 Dec 2014Do give Tizen a try! So many bad comments here and people have not seen or played with the OS.... moreI bought a bada Os based phone way back in 2010, I am still using it. The build quality and the battery back is still great.
I would give Tizen a try, if it provides better power managment and build quality, may be in compared with Android.
yuck. just yuck. they look like dummy phones with a sticker.. UI is pathetic as always. Samsung grow up.
AnonD-345680, 27 Dec 2014They should have released this as another S1 Plus or something. Calling it the Z1 is like Merc... moreThere is no copyright issues on the z1 naming...
Think oppo used it too.
But pretty lame for a tech giant like Samsung...
Of all the possible names...
That is why I dont respect Samsung, not 1%, and hope they have even more profit loss...
And why I never buy their products...
Sammy really blew it again..
I mean wtf man? Out of all the possibilities and combinations the alphabet has, they had to copy a name from Sony? That's just stupid and wrong..
And why cand the just make 2 max 3 phones per year?
One low end & one high end. You would sell a lot more devices like this..
But hey, im not a sammy fan, so they can just go and fk themselves, those greedy thieves that don't give a phuck about their customers and their desires or needs.
Keep it up Sammy! By this rate, in 2 yeara nobody will buy your plastic devices + over saturated screens..
They should have released this as another S1 Plus or something. Calling it the Z1 is like Mercedes making a new car and calling it a M3; they just shouldn't. I can't imagine that Sony is going to take this one lying down. *Lawyers! Assemble! *Tony Stark Voice
It's better to buy Lumia devices. From Lumia 535 All Lumia including low end comes with 5 Mp front cameras
AnonD-150040, 26 Dec 2014At this price, I'm going to give tizen a try. Do give Tizen a try! So many bad comments here and people have not seen or played with the OS.
I have the gear 2 watch running Tizen, I get 5 days battery, the Android version lasts a day if your lucky!.
This phone is the start, Samsung don't want to piss off Google, but they want this to go big.
You imagine a Note 4 running Tizen and getting a whole weeks worth of battery life, that would be amazing.
Anonymous, 27 Dec 2014copy? you do know that Samsung had Z-series phone few years ago? right? No it wont...
Limited, 27 Dec 2014Well, if it's a Tizen OS phone, they should have renamed it T1... Calling it Z1 puts a slap... moreMaybe they expecting people who dont know nothing who want buy old sony z1 mistakenly buy samsung z1 ... And thought its same cause the name show z1
Sangsum, 26 Dec 2014Hahahaha... That design will be used for the next s6.Ya sangsum u r right i also thinks that this design will be copied for further devices of samsung
LOL this looks like it came out of 2007.
Wake up Samsung at this rate even Microsoft will surpass you. They have the excellent Lumia 535 with 5MP front camera, 1GB ram, 8 GB rom, for a little more.
Well, if it's a Tizen OS phone, they should have renamed it T1...
Calling it Z1 puts a slap on Sony's face.. LOL
Absolute garbage, but hey thats just my opinion, never been a huge fan of samsung eitherway
carcoon, 27 Dec 2014Samsung is making fun of Sony by naming their lowest end phone with Sony's flagship. Lmao. Sony owned.
