    After being delayed multiple times the Samsung Z1 was recently released in India. This is the first smartphone commercially released by Samsung that's running on the company's own Tizen operating system which has so far powered Samsung devices other than smartphones. The company might have hoped that Tizen would hit the ground running in India due to its competitive price but that doesn't seem to be the case. Rather it seems the device failed to excite the market.

    Reuters reports that reviewers and consumers both are not singing praises of the Samsung Z1. Many criticize the lack of applications as well as its low-resolution cameras. This leads the scribe to speculate that the Z1 will struggle to make its mark in the Indian market which is already being courted by some 280 smartphone brands.

    Even though the Samsung Z1's $92 price tag beats many Android rivals on price the low-end smartphones powered by Google's OS still offer better specifications, particularly cameras which are better than the Z1's 3.1-megapixel rear camera.

    Samsung has not said if and when the Tizen smartphone will be released in other markets.
