Samsung Wave 525
17 February 2011
Excerpt: Samsung impressed everyone with the kind of hardware they packed into the original Wave (GT S8500) at an affordable price point. The curious were tempted enough to go for the phone even with at the risk of braving a brand new (and yet unproven) operating system called bada.
Pros: Lots of in-built features, Wi-fi 802.11n, Powerful image editing options on phone, Call clarity
Cons: Clunky apps, App store still growing, Lags under heavy task multitasking, No 3G
Summary: One more phone from Samsung joins the wave of smartphones aptly named S5250 Wave 525. Keeping itself attuned to its predecessors’ capabilities, it structures itself around the bada operating system with a 3.2” touch screen to match the web experience offered by Wi-Fi connectivity.
Cons: Image and video editing capabilities, Music recognition service, Low screen resolution, Lack of DivX/Xvid support, No dedicated gallery app
Summary: I have no complaints to the connection quality, ringtones sound loudly, while the vibro is not always felt. Speech communication is always good, even in noisy conditions.
Wave 525 costs €210-220, while 533 fetches €240.
Conclusion: The Samsung Wave 525 is a decent low-end handset, mainly due to bada OS offering much built-in functionality that until recently was only reserved for the iOS/Android devices, like image editing and music recognition apps integrated into the platform.
Pros: Image and video editing capabilities, Music recognition service
Cons: Low screen resolution, Lack of DivX/Xvid support, No dedicated gallery app
Summary: I will not dwell on issues of connection quality and signal reception, because my sample had no problems with it. The loudspeaker of Wave 525 sounds great and sometimes can even be too noisy if you choose an annoying and loud ringtone.
Summary: Samsung Wave 525 is a mid-range handset, powered by none other than the Bada OS. The device is a regular bar shaped touch screen phone, which looks strikingly similar to Samsung Star and Corby series of handsets.
