Samsung Z1


Display and Camera

Samsung Z1 sports a cool 4-inch diagonal touchscreen which is based on PLS technology. Samsung said this technology ensures users get to enjoy bright, vivid-looking display even when outdoors. This display should be able to deliver enjoyable multimedia experience.

In the camera department, the Samsung Z1 packs a 3.1-megapixel rear-facing camera with Auto Face Detect and Dream Shot features. However, the front-facing snapper could have been better, being just a VGA sensor.

Power and Performance

Samsung Z1 is powered by a dual-core processor running at speed of 1.2 GHz. The chip is supported by 768 MB of RAM. It runs on its Korean maker’s Tizen operating system, which is rather unpopular, compared to the likes of iOS and Android, but appears to offer some impressive features.

The lightweight OS offers faster boot time and faster page loading times. Samsung says the smartphone is configured to use less data while surfing the web. Juice needed for the Z1 is supplied by a 1500mAh battery, which supports longer device use through the aid of an Ultra Power Saving Mode.

Other Features

Onboard storage is 4 GB, but users will be able to expand storage space by up to 64 GB using a microSD card. The Samsung Z1 has dual-SIM feature to enable you tap into the benefits of having two separate SIM cards on the same device.

Connectivity options include USB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n. The phone has a private mode that enables you conceal sensitive files from prying eyes.

Samsung Z1 also has an integrated antivirus which scans apps and text messages for security threats. There is a Joy Box feature that allows users access to a wide range of entertainment content.
