What a HORRIBLE device!!! and with Tizen which is the worst mobile OS in the wolrd!! NO applications, no games, no support, no manufacturers, no nothing jajajaa. Only for silly people. Android will be the king for next 5 years. Better buy an android from samsung, or HTC, Oppo, Sony, etc, etc.

Do You know a customer who ever ask for Android? No! They ask for Samsung, HTC, Oppo, Sony, etc. So, they will continue to ask for Samsung no matter if it’s Android or Tizen inside.

I am a customer who has asked for Android on a device. As a developer i don’t want to be burned by a half arsed OS that Samsung peddles, and then forgets. Think BADA. Some of us do have a brain, do research and ask for a specific device.

I ask for Android, then I continue to preach the repulsiveness of Crapple’s iJunk to the sales person.

As long as they remove the ridiculous always-online option for apps installed.

When I’m streaming from my local Plex Server to my local TV-set then I shouldn’t need an active internet-connection.
