Samsung I9103 Galaxy Z Advantages And Dis Advantages

The Galaxy S lineup is no stranger to versioning - the original Galaxy S relied on half a dozen different editions to achieve its market success. Its successor will obviously take a similar path as we just got its first body double in the face of the Samsung I9103 Galaxy Z. With Tegra 2 stepping in for the Exynos chipset and SC-LCD taking the place of the new generation SuperAMOLED Plus, the Galaxy S Z should be covering for the cases when the Galaxy S II is just slightly out of budget, while at the same time saving on the precious AMOLED panels.

Now, the Samsung I9100 is obviously a winning formula so Samsung should be extra careful with any changes that it introduces.

Tegra 2 is a fine alternative to Exynos and we already know what kind of performance to expect. We’ve seen the switch to SC-LCD before – with the I9003 Galaxy SL. With the numbers the Super AMOLED Plus packing I9100 is selling, it’s no surprise that Samsung will try to sell a few units that don’t use up their scarce Super AMOLED recourses.

We’ve summarized the specs of the Samsung I9103 Galaxy Z to get you acquainted with the device quickly, so we can move on to the fun stuff.

Clearly, the Samsung I9103 Galaxy Z is meant as a companion of the I9100 Galaxy S II – early pricing info also suggests that the two belong to different market segments.

It would be much better if we can have a 8MP camera and 1080p video capture, but if sticking to the 5MP/720p camera specs means we can munch on Gingerbread for less cash than the S II would cost, then we won’t complain. After all, the original Galaxy S had a similar camera module and we’re quite pleased with it.

As for now, this phone is still in pre production stage. And what ever previewed is a pre-production model of the Samsung I9103 Galaxy Z and the hardware might change before the design is finalized. The software looks identical to the one in the I9100 Galaxy S II, so that probably won’t see much (if any) changes. Further optimizations to suit the new chipset seem likely though.

Galaxy S II is Samsung's flagship, Samsung I9103 Galaxy Z is made to find upper-mid range customers. Galaxy Z looks promising with its processor. Samsung Galaxy S II is almost similar to Samsung I9103 Galaxy Z, except that the former contains Super LCD screen while the later contains super AMOLED screen that’s what I guess the LCD will not satisfy much. however, this will lead to a better battery backup on the other side.

Samsung I9103 Galaxy Z running on Android OS, v2.3 (Gingerbread) and 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 AP20H Dual Core processor with this technology a smart phone will be as smooth as it could be.

Also, Samsung I9103 Galaxy Z supports Built-in accelerometer, multi-touch input, proximity sensor, Swipe text input, Office document viewer/editor. If you are music lover or if you want to have a phone that supports lots of multimedia, Samsung I9103 Galaxy Z is right for you. There are plenty of storage for you where you can store huge amount of songs, images, video songs, movies and other data, it has 8GB internal space and it can expand up to 32GB with microSD memory card.

Samsung I9103 Galaxy Z has excellent battery performance with Li-Ion 1650 MAH standard battery which can have a talk time of up to 9 hours and standby time of up to 620 hours.

Samsung I9103 Galaxy Z Advantages And Dis Advantages 2

There is not much negative on model, all what users can say is, it’s a boring design, and most don’t like to two buttons below the display on the front side. It does not have the slender, 8.5mm frame of its big brother, but the I9103 Galaxy Z is a good looking device.

Samsung I9103 Galaxy Z does not support HD video recording. Well looking at HTC EVO 3D with 5 MP and dual core, It is able to produce 1080p video. But there is no clue why not 1080p in Samsung I9103 Galaxy Z. And the screen on Samsung I9103 Galaxy Z is not LCD, its just Super AMOLED.
