Good feature phone

srdjav, Phone Arena

  • Excerpt: Overall, good feature phone. Solid camera, good multimedia experience, no problem with calls or messages of all types. But internet experience is baaaaaaaaaad. And number of applications is small. But that would not be so much problem if the half of them isn't fart apps! Very crappy apps! No document editor built-in, and the one on the market unusable!

Samsung Wave (S8500)

hieunh, Rate it all!

  • Summary: Price and its hardware is great indeed. Super AMOLED screen is brilliant. But Bada OS as its weaknesses, GPS will not work, or take much time to connect to satellites. Very few apps.

  • Pros: the screen is appealing but probably does not matter so much in practical terms.
  • Cons: keyboard does not have back/forward select keys. speeddial does not seems to be available. samsung kies. my laptop vista system managed to run the program but my desktop xp system does not despite the fact that i installed both in the same manner.

Great phone useless OS

  • Summary: This was the last Samsung phone I ever bough and I will not buy another! The hardware was brilliant however the software was rubbish. Bada was to be the big OS for Samsung until they abandoned it and left Wave users high and dry!

not worth it

  • Summary: i've had this phone for 9 months, but it's been too much of a mixed bag. overall i would say, it's ok but not worth it. the main reason is that bada is too simplistic. the hardware on the phone is probably good enough to compete with anything. speed, screen, camera, memory, wifi, connectivity, it's all there. i'm not sure about reception though.

Phone is fine, software like something from ten years ago

R. Haylock, Amazon
9 November 2010
  • Summary: As the hardware goes it is as reviewed before, it seems to be fine. But the PC software which you have to download (and it is very large) does not support this phone even though it was downloaded specifically for this model. This is what it tells you when you try to connect the phone to Kies by bluetooth, with the cable it just sits there and says connecting for hours.

It is a cool smartphone

  • Excerpt: The Samsung Wave, which is the first phone that used Bada Os that developed by Samsung. Samsung Wave has a super AMOLED screen, 1GHz processor and a slim design that easy to get hold on it. With its metalic body, it makes it look even nicer and cool. Other than that, it screen was anti scratch and i do believe that the super amoled screen is only have with Samsung. I don't see there are any other brand phone like samsung have a super amoled screen.

  • Excerpt: "I was offered the Samsung Wave as part of my upgrade. I originally wanted the HTC desire, but was told that was sold out but could have the Samsung and an extra £5 off my Monthly payment. I quickly did a bit of research online and saw potentially good things going for this smart little phone including AMOLED screen, nice processor and ability to record in HD. I didn't really use my previous phone for anything other than calls/texts/pictures, so wasn't ...
  • Pros: AMOLED display and ability to record HD video
