Fahrou, 14 Jan 2015I don't understand, what advantage Tizen has over Android? Is there real advantage for people ... more"Is there real advantage for people choosing Tizen over Android? Price? Performance? Battery usage?"
You're looking at this the wrong way. Samsung made Tizen to look a lot like their skinned TouchWiz Android devices. Yes its lighter so performance, price and maybe even battery usage may be better but the main thing is it will also run Android apps. People will look at this and one of their Android devices and not see much of a difference and if the price is cheaper they may even get the Tizen device. Some may even walk into the store, buy a Tizen device and not even know its not an Android device until they see some kind of marking or when they boot it up.
Samsung wants to have a way out, a way from Google and Android. Sure since Tizen runs Android apps they still rely on Android, but I think they're hoping that developers will make their own apps for Tizen if Samsung can prove Tizen is a viable OS. If they buy Blackberry then they'll give people 3 choices (and if they make phones with Windows then 4). Choice is good for consumers. They could use Tizen for their low end devices and Blackberry OS for their high end devices. Or maybe they won't buy Blackberry at all.
The question isn't which OS is better Android or Tizen, it is can Samsung get people to buy into Tizen. I think if they look close enough alike people won't care. If you saw a Samsung Note with Android for $600 and a Samsung Page (my name for a Tizen Note) with Tizen for $500 and you booted them both up, the Tizen booted faster, looked almost exactally like the Note with Android with similar functionality, was snappier when opening apps and ran your favorite Android apps which one would you pick?

Price? Performance? Battery usage?
Kyembe, 14 Jan 2015It will make it, and even supassing them. Samsung are good at marketingThey will never surpass it. Keep dreaming shamesung cannot.
they will make it, they start with a budgetphone which is smart.
people will buy it faster. the device has not that good specs but
for 90$ its a good phone to start to get used to tizen
AnonD-193514, 13 Jan 2015ok samsung get your point, if i were to run android on tizen,why not i go with android, ... moreFor now, samsung just want there OS to be lauched then they will know how they can develope it. Even with there Exynos processor, its not that powerful but they have been consitent with it and they are closing the gap between it and qualcom snapdragon.
aaa, 14 Jan 2015remember the Bada (Total failure), why hardware companies try to make their own OS leave that ... moreThey want to have there own ecosystem like apple. And google and microsoft have gone into there business (the business of manufacturing hardware; phones watches e.t.c) they don't feel secure; maybe one day these software giants may bring in restrictions in the future so that they can win more market share of there devices its high time to start preparing a way out.
Of course for now it will strugle as it is young but samsung is a very determined company so they will make sure it grows.
The OS is likely to perform better on exynos processor and touchwiz since they will optimise it for that.
AnonD-295464, 13 Jan 2015Who exactly is gonna buy this phone?Learn this pal, some people are not even aware of the so called operating system. All they will see is that there is a new and cheap samsung phone and they will buy. Some people will get it to have a different taste, others to explore and have a feel of the new operating system. Besides, samsung are good at packing there softwares with a lot of features so this OS will have more features than any mobile OS so it will be worth going for.
remember the Bada (Total failure), why hardware companies try to make their own OS leave that for software companies and spend the extra cash you have to make hardware innovation.
Most of the guys here confuse Samsung BEFORE and Samsung NOW.
Please, take it easy.
They started with low end devices to have time to test it first and to improve it. That's clever.
Samsung was the main reason that Android have such success . And yes - TouchWiz functionality was the key. No matter how loud few android freaks and the apple's propaganda is bashing it.
Why Samsung went Tizen? Because TouchWiz running over other OS that runs own backgrounds , make it heavy, and harder to optimize.
TouchWiz with Tizen is meant to be lighter than stock Android.
Will see if this will happen.
Just give them a chance.
Samsung is not leaving Android, though. Just forget it.
BTW No need only US to control all the peoples data. Right? (Windows, Android, iOS)
>hey, let's make a new platform, it'll beat android in a heartbeat!
>uh, well, it's been years with no devices, how about we make budget devices instead of flagships? Yep, we're totally not gonna use 3rd world countries for a shameless soak test :D
>can anybody please make apps for us? no? well, we're gonna milk android apps anyway!
At least blackberry had the guts to release a well spec'd device when they unveiled the Z10.
AnonD-295464, 13 Jan 2015Who exactly is gonna buy this phone?I am gonna buy it because it seems interesting and its gonna be my second phone
i do not think that tizen will make it in a world of android windows ios even bb10 and firefox it still has to go up against.
dukaki, 13 Jan 2015This will certainly help selling more phones.
However from the developer's side there will... moreNot true.
Why shouldn't android developers make their apps native to Tizen ? When they can put them on one more platform (store), with almost no effort ??
