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

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.

Samsung Wave Y S5380 review

17 November 2012
  • Excerpt: De Samsung Waye Y (S5380) is een budgettelefoon die gebruik maakt van het Bada, het eigen besturingssysteem van de Zuid-Koreaanse fabrikant zelf. Hij is compact, heeft een 3.2 inch touchscreen en door goede connectiviteit kan je simpel en snel communiceren met je vrienden. Niet onbelangrijk om te melden: hij is te koop voor een zacht prijsje. De Samsung Wave Y is een lekker compacte telefoon.

Expert Review

3 August 2012
  • Conclusion: Il Samsung Wave Y S5380 è uno smartphone dal design moderno destinato a chi si avvicina per la prima volta a un dispositivo del genere e non vuole spendere una fortuna. Basato sul sistema operativo proprietario Bada, dispone di tutto l’occorrente per realizzare foto video, ascoltare musica e navigare in Internet, senza eccellere in nessun settore particolare. Non mancano GSP, accesso ai social network e alla chat online.
  • Pros: Display touchscreen cacitivo; Full multi-tasking; Applicazione ChatON
  • Cons: Memoria interna; No filmati HD; No fotocamera secondaria

27 April 2012
  • Conclusion: Samsung Wave Y to bardzo udany telefon. Za jego pozytywną opinią przemawia doskonały stosunek jakości do ceny. System Bada 2.0 na pokładzie zapewnia dostęp do sporej liczby aplikacji, gier i jest intuicyjny w obsłudze. Osoby, które do tej pory trzymały się z daleka od zaawansowanych smartfonów, mogą śmiało sięgnąć po Wave Y. Pozostali mniej wymagający użytkownicy również nie powinni narzekać.
  • Pros: Opublikowano: 27/04/2012, Autor: Newsroom Mobility, Nie chodzi tu oczywiście o falę tsunami, ale o nowy model Samsunga oznaczony jako S5380. Telefon pracuje pod kontrolą systemu Bada w najnowszej odsłonie 2.0 i ma kosztować ok. 450 zł brutto. Jest to zatem najtańszy model Koreańczyków z ich autorskim systemem. Czy urządzenie ma szansę namieszać na rynku low-endowych smartfonów?, Samsung Wave Y wizualnie robi bardzo dobre wrażenie. Design telefonu jest inspirowany lini...
  • Cons: Wady:, Brak autofocusu i LED w aparacie,, Słaba kamera,, Słabe kąty widzenia.

Samsung Wave Y:

5 April 2012
  • Summary: Если закрыть глаза на вышеописанные сбои и списать их на то, что у нас был предпродажный образец, то можно признать Samsung Wave Y весьма неплохим смартфоном для своей ценовой категории (разве что камера разочаровала). Правда, окончательную оценку выносить рано, потому что функциональность устройства во многом будет зависеть от количества приложений в Samsung Apps для bada 2.0.
