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.

  • Cons: Pricey for a bada handset, Lousy pictures and video capture indoors, Only a modest upgrade from its predecessor Wave 2

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.

  • Summary: Samsung's Bada operating system on Wave III is a worthy challenger in the world of Android.

  • Pros: BADA 2.0 is a huge improvement, User interface is highly refined, Great display, Slim and lightweight
  • Cons: Limited apps available, Lacks cloud connect
