    I thought they were still working on Tizen in the background, like Huawei worked on HarmonyOS. But shutting it down feels like a big middle finger towards Z4 buyers.

      Tizen in tv is smooth and its one of few os which allow iptv players (you can sideload your own playlist of tv).

        Samsung should have either created a OS from scratch or should have revamped Tizen for low and mid budget phones. How long they can be dependent upon Android?

          Samsung Smart TVs are the worst just because of this frickin OS. 3rd party app availability is pretty scarce and very limited.

            What about smart tvs?

Bad choice for them, they had so much control that they misguided them.

                    Trash phone and trash OS, back in the days for the same price or even cheaper you can just buy Redmi 4A or 5A far better choice.

                      Next will be Harmony OS. Ohh wait, harmony os for smartphones are literally just an Android. Yet a lot of dum dum saying that it's not 🤦🏻‍♂️

                        Samsung shuts down the Tizen app store? Goodbye as well.

                          Yeah, I fondly remember Blackberry failed because they were too successful.

                              One of the reasons I do not buy a lot of the things which companies make now a days is because you do not know when they will shut down the servers and you cannot use the device you paid for properly

                                  So, we're left with Sailfish which by definition not officially dead, yet, but it has been pretty much dead for years nonetheless

                                    Still remember my first phone with Tizen OS Samsung Wave 3. It was a looker. Shame the phones now a days look more or less the same. The OS was downright bad though.

                                      Tizen was their alternative OS to Android. They developed it in case they were ever locked out of Android. Maybe something has changed in the political landscape that they're no longer at risk of that happening? Or maybe they'll take the Huawei route and fork Android if they're ever locked out of it as they'll still have access to AOSP?
