  1. Nothing can be clearly stated about the tizen’s future or samsung’s effort until a complete hands on review. meanwhile i am afraid of samsungs cheap hardware quality that is evident nowadays.. Timeless memory BADA used to rock the nerds hands in Wave-2 and THE Wave 3 and GT-5380 , THE Monte, but..It was top notch hardware and superior displays that samsung WAS really awarded for..

  2. Really amazing os launched by Samsung,is that like a BADA, samsung’s own operating system, struggled a lot in the market past years.

    1. Man are you drunk this is a pc of crap from Samsung for 5700 better specs available from other manufacturers at 3.5 k with KitKat and access to Google play store with million apps.

  3. Such a flop concept. Hey samsung u know or not nokia also try this and shut down the shutters I think your time is also to shutdown!

    1. Not Nokia dude. They are aiming to be more like Apple,building their own ecosystem etc. If they succeed, it would be a huge, huge boon for us consumers. Prices will be more competitive etc

      1. adding 200rs Gives u a snapdragon 400,8mp&2mp Camera and 1 gb ram now tell me where do you think they will succeed?

        1. Well, I’m not a Samsung fan myself but this move suggest that they are trying to be loose from the grasp of Android. They have the money and resources. So anything can happen. No one knew android would be this big certain years ago. But above all, the resulting factor would be that prices will be more competitive. Hurray for us Buyers.

      2. Poor business strategy, they are coping all from apple, nothing innovative, can’s succeed like apple poor copycats, loser samsung.

      3. Till end of 2016 Nokia can do nothing, because they signed agreement with Microsoft not to use any other OS except Windows and you better know windows phone. So nokia fan have to wait till 2017.

      4. Yes its good if they succed building their own ecosystem we will be free from Samshits overpriced andy’s ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

        Then only our Hero Micromax will rule ๐Ÿ™‚
