Cons: Very limited app and widget selection., Poor built-in Facebook, media, navigation and Twitter apps., Little reason to buy over Samsung's own Android phones., No text auto-correction.
Summary: I have no complaints to the connection quality, ringtones sound loudly, while the vibro is not always felt. The location of the loudspeaker at the top creates advantages in the pocket, but at times there is a downside: if you put it upside down the sound will be faded.
Conclusion: The Samsung Wave is an excellent test bed for Samsung’s new smartphone platform. With TouchWiz 3.0 lending a strong hand, bada shows great promise. The hardware design is elegant and modern, and the display is outstanding.
Pros: Excellent Super AMOLED display, easy to use Widget UI with very flexible customization, lovely high end hardware., Pro: Excellent Super AMOLED display, easy to use Widget UI with very flexible customization.
Cons: At this point, there are virtually no apps available for download. Do we need another smartphone OS?, Con: No downloadable apps yet, OS doesn't set itself ahead of the smartphone pack.
Conclusion: In terms of its competition I would say that the Samsung Wave lies in the same group as the HTC Legend. Which is best? I would have to go for the Legend to be honest. It just does most things a little better apart from the screen and the HD video recording. Of course this is just my opinion.
