Samsung has launched its first ever phone which is completely made in India under “Make in India” campaign not only that the entire Smartphone is also designed in Samsung’s Bangaluru research and development (R&D) center.
It is priced at INR 4,590 and was officially released in India on August 29, 2016, Samsung has sold more Z2 in India than any other phone in the last quarter of 2016 and is the most popular phone by any brand in the sub Rs. 5,000 in the country.
Samsung Z2 Pros
|1||Processor||We don’t see ARM’s Cortex topping in the processors of low-budget mobiles but Samsung has done the hard work after putting a much-needed layer of Cortex A7 on top of Quad core Spreadtrum SC9830A processor which clocks at 1.5 GHz. This mixture of powerful processor is hard to come by in such a low-priced device.|
|2||Display||According to India Times, Z2 is the fastest 4-inch phone so far and is also considered as the fastest by Samsung with 5 megapixel Camera.|
|3||Primary Camera||There is a 5 MP main camera with an LED Flash. as per NDTV Gadgets Samsung Z2 is the most sold phone with such a feature in sub Rs. 5,000.|
|4||Battery||It is spotted with 1,500 mAh battery and for a small-sized mobile, it is more than enough, another plus point.|
|5||Memory||And here comes the biggest reason which makes it a beast, there is an internal storage of 8 GB but has an expandable capacity of whopping 128 GB and according to GSMarena, Samsung Z2 is the only handset in its price group with such a large memory.|
|6||4G VoLTE||Every other feature would have had no meaning to exist if there was no 4G Voice over LTE support and the company knew it and equipped it with the same network support and one can use Jio SIM in it without any worry.|
|7||Screen||It is the popular small-sized mobile by Samsung so far.|
|8||Colors||Most brands would release their low-budget phones in just one or very rarely in two colors but this one will be available in three colors i.e. Black, Gold, Red.|
|9||OTG support||There Indian engineers has done a great job here after enabling it with a OTG support and the accountant did the rest by keeping the price well below Rs. 10,000|
|10||Price||This also happens to be the cheapest handset with more advanced specifications.|
Samsung Z2 Cons
|1||Fingerprint scanner||There is not fingerprint sensor and that’s quite a sad thing as few other models in the same price range by Lava and Intex comes with the same sensor.|
|2||Quick charging||No fast charging is also a set back.|
|3||Front Camera||No doubt on the class of rear camera but the selfie camera is quite a disappointment, comes with 0.3 MP and will give you a poor imaging and videos.|
There are more reasons to buy this pocket friendly compact sized mobile and if you can compromise on the cons then you should certainly check this out.
Also, the company on the day of launch mentioned that they are targeting non Smartphone users with Z2 in India, and on the same ground, if you are planning to buy your first touch screen device or planning to gift one to any elderly people, you search for the best one should end here.
