If you’re considering purchasing a Samsung phone, I have good news for you. You can now choose from two different follow-up phones to the recently released ZF2. One is the Notebook series which has the same screen size and the same features as the ZF2 but maybe not in the same size you desire. The other follow-up phone is the Galaxy series, which will probably be the biggest seller in the range due to its higher screen size and multi-touch functionality. The Notebook series follows the trend of the mini-notebooks, which were very popular a few years back and is a real competitor to the Kindle and iPad.
In my opinion, there are two main reasons why Samsung’s follow-up to the ZF2 could be so small. One reason is that Samsungs are really cheap phones and it’s really easy to make them sell quickly if they have great specifications and a big enough screen. It’s all about making money and the big selling phones are made by big companies with big marketing budgets. So when they release a smaller, cheaper phone, it just doesn’t sell like it used to. The other reason is that these follow-up phones are not as popular as their predecessors and the biggest reason is that the existing models offer more functionality than before.
Let’s look at the first reason first. The Notebook series is selling very well and it offers a good alternative to the iPhone or iPad which is a really competitive price. However, it’s not as stylish as the iPhone and iPad so people are looking for phones that are bigger and more stylish. This is good news for Samsung and they should be able to push this series into a higher price bracket because of the demand. However, it’s also bad news for consumers because the smaller phones might actually get fewer features than the bigger ones.
There are other smaller phones that have been announced, which could be good news for consumers. One example is the Samsung Duo series. This series comes with dual cameras in one of them. This allows for two pictures to be taken with the same device. The other feature is a virtual keyboard that makes it easier to navigate.
Another series is the Notebook series from Samsung. This has a lot of features including Microsoft Office support, Internet browser, and Samsung Internet Software which allow for added features like email and instant messaging. Unfortunately, the Duo series won’t be as successful as the Notebook series because it doesn’t offer as many features. Hopefully, the Duo series will follow suit and launch alongside the Notebook series to increase consumer interest.
The next series to follow up to the ZF2 is the ZUK Z Flip. This is similar to the Flip and it also offers some good hardware. This is different than Flip in that it offers an application platform. If you compare the two, Flip offers limited software support. With the ZUK Flip, you get a wider variety of applications available.
Perhaps the best follow-up to the ZF2 would be the Skelton phone. It is similar to the LG Optimus Prime, which offers a great design and great features. However, this phone isn’t as big as the Flip or Notebook. This would be a problem if you need to use the ZUK Flip on a desktop. There is a new phone from Samsung that offers a nice alternative, the Skelton.
It seems that there will be more phones from Samsung that follow the ZF series up to the next generation of phones. While they have yet to announce any specific plans, I am expecting at least one more phone from Samsung. When it does arrive, we’ll find out how closely they are following up to the second generation of Flip phones.
