Samsung Wave Y Young Review

8 April 2012
  • Summary: The Samsung Wave Y Young is priced at Rs. 7,150. At this price tag, it directly competes with the Samsung Galaxy Y and the Spice Mi-350n . In terms of specs alone, the Spice Mi-350n might provide more bang for your buck, with a better camera and a larger screen, though it falls a bit short in processing speed. But, if you’re looking for brand value, you’ll be more inclined towards either the Galaxy Y or the Wave Y.

Samsung Wave Y Review

Phone Arena
16 March 2012
  • Conclusion: The Samsung Wave Y is a pleasant handset all-around, with no major flaws to really pick at. It sports a comfortable and sturdy design, made handsome by the faux brushed aluminum back, and has a bright display with above average for the category pixel density. When we add the decent pictures and call quality, about the only complaint left is that it is running bada, instead of Android, but for the phone’s target market that shouldn’t be such an issue, as most of the...
  • Pros: Sturdy design with a nice back cover finish, Zippy, good-looking interface behavior, Good call quality and loudspeaker
  • Cons: Video capture is pretty useless, Embedded YouTube videos don't show in the browser

Samsung Wave Y review: Young blood

GSM Arena
5 March 2012
  • Conclusion: It seems the Bada OS is pushed to the sidelines, what with Android and iOS combining for almost half of the devices sold last year. What's interesting is that Samsung themselves have accounted for a large portion of those Android sales. Does this mean that they are going to go full-fledged with Android in the future, putting Bada to rest at some point? Only time will tell.
  • Pros: 3.2" HVGA capacitive touchscreen (320 x 480 pixels), Bada OS 2.0 with Samsung Apps, 832 MHz single-core CPU, Quad-band GSM support with dual-band HSPA, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n connectivity, Wi-Fi Direct support, Wi-Fi tethering, Built-in GPS receiver with A-GPS support, digital compass, 2 GB microSD card bundled in, support for up to 32 GB via hot-swappable slot, Standard microUSB port and Bluetooth v3.0 with A2DP, Standard 3.5mm audio jack, Stereo FM radio with RDS, Webki...
  • Cons: Bada OS has limited number of available applications, Fixed focus 2 MP camera, no flash, No screen haptics, No proper Smart Dialling, SatNav software only a 30-day trial, Poor loudspeaker performance

Expert Review

26 September 2013
  • Summary: The new Samsung Wave Y  S5380 is the cheapest phone among the three Bada OS phones announced by Samsung. Samsung had announced Samsung Wave 3 and Samsung Wave M other than the Samsung Wave Y. All the phone operate on Bada OS version 2.0 and they are all very good phones. These phones are smartphones but Samsung hasn’t built them to be Android.

Обзор смартфона Samsung S5380 Wave Y: мы выбираем, нас выбирают

25 June 2013
  • Conclusion: Разговорный динамик средний по громкости, в шумных местах приходится разговаривать на предельной мощности. Звонит телефон не очень громко, на улице его далеко не всегда слышно. Вибросигнал тоже чувствуется не всегда, в джинсах его можно и не ощутить.

Обзор Samsung GT-S5380 Wave Y: шаг вперед, два назад

2 April 2013
  • Conclusion: На мой взгляд, Wave Y – это осознанный выбор в пользу ОС Bada вместо Android. Причем, делая выбор в пользу Bada, если качество камеры критично, то имеет смысл доплатить до Wave M. Но, если наличие ОС Bada не принципиально, то целесообразно присмотреться к конкурентам, в частности к МТС 955 или LG Optimus Link.
