Samsung Mobile Nepal has recently launched the successor to the Tizen-powered Samsung Z1, the Samsung Z2 here in Nepal. The budget friendly Tizen smartphone is available in the Nepalese market for a price of Rs 7,290.
The Samsung Z2 packs some decent specs and a slew of features for the price. The phone sports a 4-inch WVGA screen (480*800) with a pixel density of 233 PPI. Under the hood, the phone is powered by a Spreadtrum SC9830, a quad-core processor along with the Mali-400 GPU. The processor is backed up by 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage. The memory can be expanded via a micro sd card up to 200 GB.
The phone also houses a 5 MP rear camera with a LED flash. It also has a VGA selfie camera which we wish had a little higher megapixel count. In the software side of things, the phone runs Samsungs own operating system, the Tizen OS version 2.4. And powering the device up is a user removable 1500 mah battery. This will be enough to get the users a full day of usage without any problem.
Overall the Samsung Z2 is a decent smartphone considering its price tag. It runs Tizen OS which is still in its infancy. This, however, helps the phone stay smooth and brings useful features like S Bike Mode, Ultra Data Saving, and Ultra power saving mode. And did I even mention that this phone is a 4G enabled device! This is really amazing considering it’s a sub 10000 costing smartphone. Not only that, the phone also supports dual sim cards giving you the flexibility of using two sim cards at the same time.
