Samsung S8600 Wave S: A Welcome Addition with a New OS

Mad4MobilePhones.com
30 September 2012
  • Summary: The biggest downside to this mobile phone is the dearth of apps. The new OS has few available at the onset, but since the October introduction, the catalogue has grown significantly. Overlook that decreasing inconvenience, and you’ll probably be very pleased with this model. We were.

Samsung Wave 3 Review

cellphonequick.com
29 April 2012
  • Summary: The Samsung Wave 3 S8600 makes its way into a very different looking market.The Wave 3 with its limited app support and proprietary OS has a much steeper hill to climb. Unlike the Galaxy smartphones, the Wave 3 uses high quality metal in its build and is also surprisingly slim and light.
  • Pros: Distinct brushed metal design, Ingenuous sliding chassis allows easy microSD and SIM card swaps, Prettified bada 2.0 runs flawlessly on the 1.4GHz processor
  • Cons: Pricey for a bada handset, Lousy pictures and video capture indoors, Only a modest upgrade from its predecessor Wave 2

Samsung Wave III Review

thinkdigit.com
1 December 2011
  • Summary: There is absolutely no doubt that the S8600 has excellent specs on paper, performs well and has a very good display. Beyond that, you are left wondering what this smartphone is all about. Neither does it have the oomph of an iPhone, nor the sheer app numbers of Android. And nor does it have the user experience offered by Windows Phone Mango.
  • Pros: Very good display, Slick UI
  • Cons: Looks too similar to Android, Not enough apps

Samsung Wave 3 Review

Phone Arena
25 November 2011
  • Conclusion: The new flagship bada OS handset Samsung Wave 3 is thin, fairly light, and made of quality materials. When you look at its brushed metal shell, it looks diligently crafted, and, to top it off, it even has some unique chassis features like a sliding shell to reveal the battery compartment.
  • Pros: Distinct brushed metal design, Ingenuous sliding chassis allows easy microSD and SIM card swaps, Prettified bada 2.0 runs flawlessly on the 1.4GHz processor
  • Cons: Pricey for a bada handset, Lousy pictures and video capture indoors, Only a modest upgrade from its predecessor Wave 2

Samsung Wave 3 – great hardware and the new Bada OS make this an attractive phone indeed

Gadgetmania
19 September 2011
  • Conclusion: The Samsung Wave 3 will be available soon worldwide, although I don’t know which network will get it in the US – Vodafone is sure to pick it up in Europe, though. The price should be lower than other phones with the same specs, seeing as it is a low-to-mid range device (with a great build quality for one). If you’re new to smartphones or just want something that is more unique than the dozens of Androids and iPhones out there, the Wave 3 is an excellent candidate.

Review: Samsung Wave 3 GT-S8600

12 April 2013
  • Conclusion: The Samsung Wave 3 is certainly a promising smartphone in this price range and segment. It offers you long list of in-built features/applications that exist in all latest Android phones. The big 4 inch Super AMOLED plus screen is amazing and offers great display. The powerful processor and RAM gives you hassle free browsing experience.
  • Cons: The Bada OS is not satisfactory for smartphone users.

8 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Samsung has become a dab hand at smartphones, with several operating systems on the go. It's a key player in the Android world, with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2 stealing plaudits all round, and the Nexus looking set to be a really popular buy too.

Обзор смартфона Samsung Wave 3 S8600

  • Conclusion: Samsung Wave 3 является, на мой взгляд, замечательным образцом смартфона категории «достал из коробки и пользуюсь». С одной стороны, это непривычно – ни тебе тщательной настройки под себя, ни лошадиной дозы приложений, игр и прочих мелких радостей, как у Android-фонов всех мастей. Но это одна точка зрения. Вторая состоит в том, что как раз таких устройств и не хватало на рынке.
