Last day, Samsung released their latest phone Samsung Z1 which is said to be a budget smartphone with all the latest features. Samsung Z1 is the first smartphone which is running on the latest TIZEN OS which is developed by Samsung itself. The TIZEN has been developed in order to beat the Android. Well we have to wait further whether the new breed of smartphone OS can beat the users’ favorite Android.


Before getting further in to the phone let’s talk about the TIZEN OS. TIZEN OS is based on the web platform which is similar to the Firefox OS that has been released on last year. All the applications developed for the TIZEN OS will be web applications.

Let’s get in to Samsung Z1 specs:

On the first view, the phone seems to be an Android powered device. All the lock screen and overall UI is inspired from the touch wiz UI. The Z1 is a 4 inch screen sized device with an overall screen resolution of 480×800 pixels. The touch screen does supports the multi touch facility. The phone’s design seems to be much familiar from one of the Samsung device itself.

Now on the camera department, Samsung Z1 comes with a rear camera which is a 3.2 MP with an LED flash and a VGA front facing camera. Since the phone is tagged as a budget smartphone this is why company forced to put less features on the camera of the phone.

On the overall phones specification the user may fell little disappointed when compared to the phone’s RAM. Samsung has managed to put a 768 MB of RAM with a 1.2GHz dual core processor. Also there is a 4GB of internal memory. Well it can be expanded up to 64GB using the micro SD card.

In the connectivity area the phone is a perfect choice. You have got 3G support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth which are similar to the features that we can see in a typical Android phone. You also has a micro USB port on the phone which do support OTG cable facility.

Another disappointing thing is phones battery. There is only a 1500mAh battery which the company claims that the users will get a talk time of 8 hours if you are in 3G network and around 10 to 12 hours in 2G network.

Other than these the phone has typical features like Accelerometer and proximity sensors. So if you are a user who looks to something new on the phone then Samsung Z1 is the perfect choice because it has got brand new OS. But for the app lovers this will not be choice because since the OS is new to the market and the developers has to port all the existing apps to the TIZEN OS which would definitely take time.
