After flagships and mid-ranged Android phones, renowned smartphone manufacturer Samsung is engaging with something new and most probably better than Android, the Tizen OS. If you’d remember, last year, the company introduced its first-ever Tizen powered smartphone, the Z1 in India. The phone was a decent hit, and was accepted broadly as a standard choice for budget smartphone buyers. Well now, we have its elder sibling, the Z3 on the block!
The new Samsung Z3 continues from where Z1 left off. The phone features an improved iteration of the light, fast, and impressive Tizen OS and incorporates a much better look and feel. It’s currently up for grabs in India at a price which is very similar to several entry-level Android phones, and is also offering a plethora of mind-boggling features for seamless work and play. So, in case you’re feeling dubious how good Samsung Tizen Z3 is, check out some of the best feature that come with it-:
- Stunning form-factor and design which you can’t really ignore
Samsung Tizen Z3 features a design which is not commonly seen with standard Android phones. Unlike most Galaxy smartphones, the dual SIM based Samsung Z3incorporates a rectangular kind of design with squared up edges. Its sleek and slim ultra-modern design and dazzling metal finish add to the aesthetics and give a great feel while holding and carrying the device around.
In terms of looks and styling, the phone makes a great first impression in three gorgeous colours, Black, Silver, and Gold.And in terms of build quality, no question at all. It’s a Samsung and is far better than usual budget phones rolling in the market.
- A viewing experience like no other
In the normal course of action, a budget phone from a renowned brand offers nothing more than standard qHD display. It gives a decent viewing experience but is not as crisp as many of us would have liked. Well, the new Samsung Z3 is here to change that.
The Tizen powered Samsung Z3 incorporates a beautiful 5-inch HD Super AMOLED display, and endows a detailed visual experience with crisp colour clarity, perfect viewing angles, and adequate sunlight legibility.The phone creates an amazing ecosystem for complete entertainment, and allows you toenjoy crisp detail and lifelike colours with an excellent contrast ratio.Indoors or outdoors, the display of the handset makes a great impression and stays perfect with rich colour rendering and deeper Blacks!
- A powerful Camera on-board
Along with slick visual experience, Samsung Z3 features a very impressive camera set up as well. The Tizen powered phone packs an 8-megapixel rear and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter, and delivers picture-perfect images in all environments.It comes with an f/2.2 apertureand performs terrifically well in low light conditions.You’ll get bright and well-focusedimages from the rear camera, and superb selfies with Samsung’s very impressive 120-degree wide selfie mode! Plus, Samsung also offers quick launch capabilities for capturing every moment with perfection.
- Aslick, light, and very impressive user-interface
While some say Tizen OS is fairly weak and annoying, we say, it’s the biggest highlight of the Z3 smartphone. The light and incredibly fast user interface not only allows you to do a lot more, but also delivers a nice user-experience. The app icons are really well designed and you can play around with interface any way you like. There are tons of themes and wallpaper on board, and you can even handpick your favourite applications just from a single swipe on the home-screen.The numbers of apps on the Tizen store is definitely lesser than Android, but don’t worry, there’s a lot that can work out for you.
In a nutshell, if you’re looking a decent user-experience with buttery smooth performance, no other budget-friendly option can go better than slick and intuitive Tizen OS.
- Battery Designed to Last
Though there are many more qualities, we are consideringthe battery backupof Samsung Z3 as one of the biggest highlights. The dual SIM phone incorporates usual connectivity options, and offers longer than expectedpower backup with its humongous 2600 mAh battery.It offers sufficient juice for seamless work and play and caters all essential requirement of a user with perfection. In fact, Samsung proudly touts that the powerhouse battery of this handset can give up to 55 hours of music play back and 15 hours talk time, which is certainly best in the Sub-10k price category.
Moreover, Samsung’s very powerful Ultra Power Saving Mode also plays a significant role in doubling up the battery life. Even if you have 10% battery, switching to the UPSM mode will give you extended power support for catering basic requirements with perfection. It extends standby time up to 33 hours, and gives prolonged performance by shutting down unnecessary functions, apps, and background programs, and switching the screen to a battery saving monochrome mode!
Though Samsung Tizen Z3 is a new player against budget Android phones, we cannot say the handset has grabbed our complete attention.However, considering its buttery smooth performance and slick user-interface, we can certainly guarantee,it will be a nice experience switching from those cheap Android phones to a new Z3, whichendows powerful innards, slick OS and prolonged battery life.
In a nutshell, with no exception for the Z3, Samsung continues to offer impressive andwell-built smartphones in the highly competitive budget smartphone market. The South-Korean giant is offering Z3 with a bunch offers at a tempting price tag of Rs. 8,490.The phone is available globally across all online portals and retail outlets, and can also be purchased occasionally with lucrative cashback and discount schemes.
To sum things up, we can say, Samsung Tizen Z3 is really good, and there’s nothing in the sub-10k price category that stop this phone from dominating against the likes of popular budget players aka, Xiaomi, Micromax, Lenovo, and Motorola!
