Samsung Z1 Review

Samsung has recently announced the release of the Z1 phone. This model is the very first Tizen powered smartphone. This smartphone is primarily released in India, where it had to perform well against competition from local and popular manufacturers.

What makes Samsung Z1 different from other Android-based phones is Tizen version 2.3. According to Samsung, it is ready to perform even faster as compared to other phones, as well as a faster web browsing experience, with simple user interface. On top of that, this model is equipped with the Joy Box, a free entertainment pack, which contains TV, movies, as well as music. It also gives access to the own premium content of Samsung via Club Samsung.

Samsung Z1 Specifications

For its hardware, Samsung Z1 is equipped with a 4-inch touchscreen display with a 480 x 800 pixel resolution, together with a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, as well as a 768MB of RAM. It also has a 4GB internal memory, which can be increased up to 64GB through a microSD card. It also supports dual SIM capability. It has a 1500mAh battery, which allows for its ultra power saving mode, which is a feature that is present on the Galaxy models. It promises to allow about eight hours of talk time.

The front camera that is located above the screen gives off some pixelated images for selfies while the rear camera comes with 3.1 megapixels as well as an LED flash. It also has 3G connectivity, Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi as well as GPS onboard. It is wrapped carefully with a 9mm thickness, as well as a weight of 112g. The Samsung Z1 is available in multiple colours – black, white, as well as wine red.

What Can Be Expected from Samsung Z1

It does not come as a surprise to find that the Z1 model feels and looks like a Samsung Galaxy phone. As a matter of fact, you may even consider it as a Samsung Galaxy S5 mini because this is one alternative option, but in a 4-inch form.

It has a removable back, which comes with matte finish. In just one hold, it can be noticed that the Z1 phone is a little tiny if you are not accustomed to trying anything other than 5 inch phones. This very own OS from Samsung takes certain aspects from TouchWiz smartphones, such as the location of the notification drop down as well as the settings menu. However in all other aspects, Samsung was able to maintain its standard in quality. The Samsung Z1 phone is quite impressive. It is little but great. This is good news for those who give value to simplicity and speed.
