  • Excerpt: Wave is a good phone with a good construction. It feels very good in your hands and it is very fast. The single problem is the OS Bada which needs some improvements and develop more apps for it. I am waitng for version 2.00 of Bada which i saw on the youtube that is awesome. I hope that the OS will be upgraded and the apps will be like on android. A major problem i find in SAR value which is a little too big and i found necesary to have an Back button like htc desire.
  • Pros: *SUPER Amoled display, *Great battery, *Fast CPU and GPU!, *Good Sound quality!, *Nice ultraslim build, *very good video player, * Good price!
  • Cons: -OS bada, -samsung doesn't update OS periodicaly, -flash support is out of date, -poor and few apps, -doesn't support text reflow, - Gps software is just a trial

great Phone!Perfect!

Justauser, Phone Arena

  • Excerpt: I have that phone for mare than 3 months. I expected it to malfunction ever since I bought it, because it's a samsung and they don't have a great reputation abouth their phones, but I was amazed! Breat with almost everything! Only downfall is the Bada OS but I guess that is because it's new and all. I'm sure that is't going to catch up with the others!
  • Pros: Everithing:, GPS, WiFi usage, Super Amoled display, Metal panel, etc.
  • Cons: OS, some other minor stuff

GPS is good with FW 1.0 only

albertsy2, Phone Arena
1 June 2011
  • Excerpt: Upgraded to 1.1 and it killed the GPS. Downgraded to 1.0 and GPS worked fine. I'll just stick to 1.0. Anyway, this is a great phone for the price. AMOLED is brilliant, camera macro is better than my DSLR and I am not kidding. The music player could do with a better sorting function, though. Dropped the phone from waist high twice and it just laughed it off. Downside is that it gets hot when on the web.
  • Pros: AMOLED
