    Samsung Z1 gets a price cut on Snapdeal

    Almost two years after it launched in India, Samsung's first Tizen-powered smartphone has been subject to a pretty hefty price cut. When it first hit the shelves in the region back in January 2015, the Samsung Z1 carried a price tag of Rs. 5,700 ($85), but now you can pick one up through Snapdeal for just Rs. 4,064 ($60).

    It's worth noting that this is a brand new unit, which comes complete with a 12-month warranty — so don't be fooled into thinking that you're going to receive either a pre-owned or refurbished device. The retailer is simply slashing the price to get rid of old stock before its rumored successor arrives next year.

    If you're still looking to enter the smartphone market and don't require the extensive catalog of applications and complex customization options that Android has to offer, then Tizen is the perfect OS for you. The Samsung Z1 runs the system smoothly and has some great integrated features.

    Fortunately, there's no need to hurry to pick up the Samsung Z1 as it's unlikely that its price will rise again. We expect it to remain at Rs. 4,064 until the South Korean company finally announces the next model. We also presume that Samsung will keep this model in its lineup as it'll be the cheapest Tizen device on the market.

    There’s finally a fast and reliable way to transfer files on Tizen

    It's no secret that Tizen has been lacking a reliable file transfer application ever since its initial release back in January 2012. Sure, you've always had the facility to grab a third-party offering from the Tizen Store, but they rarely work and often restricted. However, that's all about to change as the offering you've been […]
