As far as operating system is concerned Android is far more advanced and user-friendly compared to the new and underdevelopment Tizen OS which may take time to reach the refinement of Android. The app development is also in its early days for Tizen and developers may take time for the Apps to be available on the New Operating System.
Whether the New Smartphone offers good Value for the Indian Buyers: If it costs anywhere close to Rs. 6000 it does not. If Samsung Plan to launch it for Rs. 5000 or lower then we may find good takers for the new Smartphone. People who want a different and unique experience compared to Android can try their hands on the New Samsung Tizen Z1 smartphone.
