Samsung announces S8530 Wave II, meet the big-screen edition - read the full textYou thought the Samsung Wave 2 was the successor to the Wave, didn't you? Us too - but it's not, the Samsung S8530 Wave II is the real deal. The screen has grown to 3.7-inches and all the great features have been preserved. And we thought only Nokia's naming scheme was a mess. The Samsung S8500...

I got wave ii yesterday, charged it in the evening and when I woke up, the battery had drained from 100% to less than 15% charge (then I realised that the GPS was left on the whole night)... but now, even with wifi, bluetooth and other things off, and brightness at 20%, the battery has drained from 100% charge to 80% charge in just 5 hours! This seems too low, as the salesman told me the battery would last 2 days with light usage. And whenever I go to wi-fi settings, the damn green dot is ON. But on the dropdown panel, the wifi is shown as OFF. There is no notification logo for wi-fi otherwise. Why is my battery life so poor.

i have done a lot of r&d on purchasing the phone . when i laid eyes on the wave-1,i definitely wanted to have one . The bada OS was a new horse in the stable. People tried it liked it . they liked the super amoled display a lot . And as a result the phone sold like pancakes.
And now when i finally have the money to buy the phone i see that the wave1 is out of production. Wave II would be obviously better i thought. then the news came that they wont be having super amoled anymore. you know what, i really dont care now . this phone is good on the inside as well as it is outside. it mit be a bit heavy now but with the features it is providing and for its price its a great deal trust me. And now Bada has like 12000 apps in its app store.
Its priced Rs17850 in india. People looking out for this go purchase this fast !

apart from screen size, I really can't see a significant improvements or difference, also bigger means more weight which not everyone's like!!
I will stick with original wave by far
