its front looks very similar to my lg p765 lol
samsung can you stop copying everyone else?
"fast multitasking" of course it is! anyone knows s800 series + 2 gigs of ram won't cause any lag! lol
A new OS built from the ground up? Will this have less layers than Android?
If so, will it be snappier and have some great benchmark scores?
AnonD-58835, 02 Jun 2014Horrible OS is Tizen. Extremely basic and useless. Bettter buy an android phone. Moreonver, if... moreGoogle has some friction with Samsung, and Samsung needs a backup plan in case things don't work out with Android anymore.
No matter what, it won't look pretty as this pretty much fractures the Samsung market
So, you say that you wont trust Tizen after Bada's fail. Hope you also will not trust Windows Phone, after WinMo ultimate fail and you are not just some annoying fans.
Why the hell sammy is spending money on useless mobile OSs that noone cares about and are unsupported by developers? Bada, tizen...
This phone must be a joke..its design is a perfect mix between LG Optimus L7 and L7 II..LG should do something about it..
Horrible OS is Tizen. Extremely basic and useless. Bettter buy an android phone. Moreonver, if samsung keep encouranging tizen, i will move to HTC or any chinese manufacturer as Oppo, xioami, etc. Android is THE KING
IMO samsung is testing waters .. sammy will keep releasing lower and mid range tizen phones and will take a call later.
i really dont think it will get developer support like iOs or android .. even WP is struggling to get developers
Shaggy, 02 Jun 2014Unlike to Bada, Tizen is backed up by lots of companies besides Samsung. I think this OS can s... moreyou are wrong .. Tizen is supported only by samsung and no one other than samsung is supporting it.
LiMo - Linux Mobile got many participants like moto , lg , sasmung .. but it never saw the light
Some of you guys will always find a reason to hate samsung no matter what they do or bring to the market.
The specs on this Z series phone are awesome on top of a light and quick responsive O/S with a user interface thats close to what we used to from samsung.
As far as I know tizen will be able to use APK files meaning it will work with almost all of the apps that are used by android.
The design to me is pretty fair and yes its not anything new from samsung as design is not really their strong point but some of us we buy phones based on perfomance and specification. Honestly the design is okay especially with the leather back same as the one on the note 3 not the dotted one on the S5 that some of you have complained about.
Lastly dont bash this phone yet but rather wait for the review first and lets see how it fares off against other android flagships.
Phone design is good, similar to LG and Neken, but the UI looks like it's meant for children :|
Looks Terrible. Both Phone and UI. The Wave phone with Bada OS at least looked good.
AKS, 02 Jun 2014I want to get rid of this data consuming, battery consuming and less secure android os.If the OS doesn't do any of those it means that OS has basically nothing much to it. Even IOS does those and they are suppose to fit into that criteria.
The only meaning for a 4.9 inch screen non fullHD (instead they put HD) coupled with Snap800 could be slow performance of Tizen, since the rest is flagship-grade. Or maybe for letting Tizen being thought more optimized.
still looks like TouchWiz Ui.
Its true. they abandon Bada at the time because most app makers don't make "bada version app" and the rise of the popularity of Android.
If they want this to work this time. its either they encourage famous Apps to make a "Tizen version of the Apps" or they have to pay them.
