I really like the look of the phone, it looks rugged and chunky.
If the next (or a future) version of the Tizen Z series were to have a compass (magnetometer) installed, I would seriously consider this phone.
nextbit, 11 Mar 2016Yes samsung please release a highend phone of z3 no bigger than 5inch screen with a good camer... more'removable screen' ?.
Not sure how useful that would be, but it would definitely be one of the first Tizen phones to be able to do this. Probably a first on any system.
Yes samsung please release a highend phone of z3 no bigger than 5inch screen with a good camera and processor and a removable screen.
qwerty, 11 Mar 2016i thought sony will stop making Z zeries..LOLNice One! =)
Why the hell in the world? Samsung can name their phones with different letters , why Z? No wonder if they release X series next year. LOL!
There's little hope for tizen but they are delaying too much in launching high end tizen, seems like they are not much interested.
Roar, 11 Mar 2016This is the reason why SONY stopped the high end Z series! Samsung started using a Z moniker i... moreI think its more like sony's Z series have such a bad reputation already that they decided to replace the moniker with the X.
Are they joking or what?! I have no hope and trust for Tizen phones. You ask me why, I'll tell you why.
I once bought flagship phone Samsung Wave GT-S8500 (Wave 1) more than 5 years ago believing that Bada OS would be nice choice. Now I can say for sure, softwarewise it was total disaster because of SAMSUNG's BADA!!! They kept promising Bada upgrade to 1.2 firstly, then to Bada 2.0. All updates were delayed by many months if not years. Some regions didn't even receive updates. Bada 3.0 was total myth too. What a shame.
P.S. Wave 1 was the company's bestseller alongside with Galaxy S. I like this so much that I still own it, but as a secondary backup phone. Looking at that ugly phone in the photo I think it has no future.
This is the reason why SONY stopped the high end Z series! Samsung started using a Z moniker in their mid-range phones...
Even Tizen doesnt wants to promote any apps (not even paid ones). . .just try to install whatsapp on this Z1. . .that will kill your time
