Samsung's first Tizen phone the Z1

Samsung's first Tizen phone the Z1 is finally here and being sold in India for roughly $92.

 

Samsung Electronics started selling its first Tizen smartphone in India on Wednesday, priced at 5,700 Indian rupees ($92).

The Z1 runs the open-source Tizen operating system backed by Samsung and other vendors including Intel, and which already powers some of the South Korean company’s wearables and TVs.

 

Samsung announced a different Tizen smartphone, the Z, in June, ahead of the Tizen Developer Conference in San Francisco. It said then that it would launch it first in Russia, in the third quarter of 2014, but that phone never appeared. According to some accounts, the release of a Tizen phone in India was also delayed.

 

The Z1 has relatively low-end specs compared to the planned Z, which was to have a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display and a 2.3 GHz quad-core application processor, indicating that Samsung has shifted its focus with Tizen to the low end of the market, a booming segment in India and other emerging markets.

 

In India, the Z1 will have to compete with Android phones with similar hardware capabilities and similar prices, said Vishal Tripathi, principal research analyst at Gartner. Tizen phones may take time to take off because people are not familiar with the operating system, he added.

 

The Z1 runs Tizen 2.3 and has a 4-inch, 480x800 pixel screen and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. It has 768MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage, expandable by up to 64GB with a microSD card. Samsung claims the 1500mAh battery will play video for 7 hours or provide 8 hours of talk time.

 

Available in white, black and wine red, the smartphone has a 3.1 megapixel rear camera and a VGA front camera with face detection software.

 

A key focus of the device seems to be entertainment. Samsung has bundled the phone with three months’ free access to movies and songs from Indian digital entertainment websites. The company is also providing users free access to premium content on its own Club Samsung digital entertainment storefront, and has tied with local mobile service providers Reliance Communications and Aircel to provide 500MB of free 3G data services per month for six months.

      When it launched in back February, the Galaxy S22 received generally positive reviews from most outlets. They praised its performance, cameras, bright display, and familiar design. All in all, the Galaxy S22 appeared to be a worthy, albeit predictable successor to the S21. But there are many S22 owners who would disagree with that assessment. In fact, one popular Reddit thread is filled with frustrated Galaxy S22 owners talking about how bad the phone is.
      Is the Galaxy S22 really that bad?
      On Sunday, an anonymous user shared their S22 experience with the Samsung subreddit. The user explained that they had “the worst experience” with an Exynos-equipped Galaxy S22. Most of their issues seemed to be gaming-related.
      According to the user, the 2022 flagship phone doesn’t offer High or Ultra graphics options on PUBG Mobile, but the game runs choppily anyway. Furthermore, they claimed that Call of Duty: Mobile runs worse on their S22 than on their old S10. They made sure to point out that the Galaxy S10, which is over three years old, also has an Exynos chip.
      The user also said that recording for 5 minutes in 4K resolution at 60 FPS “gets the phone so hot to the point I can barely hold it.” Needless to say, this S22 owner wasn’t thrilled with the purchase and ended up selling the phone shortly after posting.
      Other negative experiences
      The original poster wasn’t the only one underwhelmed by the Galaxy S22. Here’s another Redditor that ran into similar problems with their S22:
      Yet another Redditor revealed that they returned their Galaxy S22 Plus:
      One Redditor suggested that the Exynos chip was the likely culprit behind the issues:
      It’s worth noting that most of the disappointed users seem to have units with Samsung’s own Exynos 2200 onboard. Samsung phones with Exynos chips only sell in specific regions, such as Europe and the Middle East.
      Here in the US, the Galaxy S22 ships with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. In GPU benchmarks, the Snapdragon 8 regularly blew the Exynos 2200 out of the water, which might explain the discrepancy.
      The post Some Galaxy S22 owners are freaking out over how bad the phone is appeared first on BGR.

      When installing an .NET application that was build with the tizen cli using: tizen build-cs -s Samsung-Certificate
      I get the following error as seen in the attachment:  Security Error [-22].
      Is there any fix for this?

      I am trying to use the  Remote Web Inspector tool for my Tizen app running remotely on my Samsung TV, Reading through forums Its coming into knowledge that the Tizen RWI framework does not support or work on newer versions of chrome. The last working chrome version with the RWI is V79 or lower, considering the chrome version being three years old and being open to all security vulnerabilities, Is there a way that we can use the RWI compatible with newer web versions?  Or is there any other possible way to use inspect my Tizen App running on the Samsung TV.
      I hope its clear and understable.
      Thanks!
