Samsung is a brand that has been on top of its game in smartphone segment for a while now and is revered by its fan. The handset maker is known to manufacture a number of devices that are ahead of the race when it comes to innovation and technology. Samsung tried to gain complete control over software aspect of its handsets by developing Tizen operating system and Z series of smartphones running on the same. The Samsung Galaxy Z3 is the third offering from the brand in this series and is as mediocre as the first two offerings.
Ultra Power Saving Mode: When you have a smartphone that is quite demanding in terms of battery, every little feature to save battery helps. Samsung was one of the first brand to realise that and introduced Ultra Power Saving Mode in its devices. This feature, when turned on, turns off unnecessary features and processes to save battery, which is a boon.
Browse Offline: This feature from Samsung lets users download and save favourite online content in a breeze. This way even if the network is not strong or is not available, users can still browse what they want with ease.
Tizen OS: This is a new operating system that has been developed by Samsung to bring the cost down and break-free of Google. This operating system is easy to use and also comes with good visuals that makes it easy on eyes as well.
Lack of apps: Since the Tizen operating system is fairly new in the market, the app ecosystem for the same is pretty scarce. Having a smartphone but not being able to use popular apps has to be the biggest disappointment for many users.
