for example , samsung SDKs for Finger print scanner is a good example..
most of the functions are not reliable and samsung use to change the interface in every release ..
if you are a developer you cant handle all these changes ..

in short samsung don't have expertise in creating ecosystem like google or apple ..
even microosft is struggling in mobile side ..

wonder what the fan boys will say when LG rolls out a Tizen phone?

after all Tizen is a partnership of Samsung, LG, Intel , and SK telecom.

with associate partners Huawei , KT, Docomo, Orange, and Vodaphone.

so yeah i see Tizen getting a lot of support and backing. and have started to notice There app store is growing fast with some major names producing apps for it now especially in the gaming area.

The only major hurdle is dedicated apps, it has an app compatibility layer if you dont mind side loading android apps to it.

there are a lot of pluses to tizen which i like. namely that it doesnt take long at all for samsung to do updates to the device when needed without having to wait on a long chain of trickle down just to get an update to the phone. after all they have already rolled out a 600MB update for the the z3 which was just recently released.

tizen has a lot of potential, and could truly be a great os, which is probably why it terrifies you so harmonica. better hardware and suddenly a better os at a better price, i could see it overtaking ios.

there is a reason why Tizen has very less number of apps .. poor SDKs and samsung has 0 experience in developer ecosystem..
considering samsungs poor expertise in software , its next to impossible for samsung to create an ecosystem like apple or google

If Blackberry Priv use Tizen, the world will end.

I am actually rooting for Sailfish OS and Tizen OS.. Both being the offspring of the legendary N9 meego/maemo 6 harmattan.. Android is heavy.. even heavier than windows 8.1 desktop.. You can see those Chinese tablets(eg. Teclast) with dual boot android and windows 8.1 reviews and you will see that windows 8.1 is faster than android on the same hardware..

All ovetpr the world, all know that the three major mobile OSs are American and means of spying. They steal user's prive info. So, it would not be undesirable another like Tizen come up.

The only problem with Tizen is the lack of apps. Being speedy an zero lag does not make a great phone unless it have some great apps in it. Especially the essential and most frequently used apps. Tizen will eventually grow bigger but I doubt it will take over android.
