I have been fiddling with a wave y that my dad bought in the UK. This is really a stupid stupid phone. Why would anyone buy such a stupid phone with no apps???? I checked the Samsung apps store - the one free apps are wallpaper theme type crap, Nothing useful. I would only recommend a bada phone if it were free. I am sure there are cheap android phones with similar performance screen sizes etc.

I don't know why samsung is planning for a new OS while they have already betrayed previous users (bada).

Why didn´t they just upgrade bada and continue in improving it? They could make "Tizen" but name it bada so all those bada fans all over the world would not feel betrayed.

Most probably you just entered the smartphone arena not long before and haven't experienced why those of us who lived through that 512ram 1g single processor says NO to manufacturer skin UI but YES to vanilla or custom launcher.
Whatever functions you want to boast off I can access them by going into main menu, so much so for functions when its all about gimmicks and a lazybrat.

Can your touchwiz adjust the flipspeed, scrollrate, bouncescreen rate, zooming rate, panning on browser?? ouch..

I don't have to teach you anything at all and you can carry on with the sammyfantroll attitude.
Still no name? Gosh... Wannabetrolls are just that low level trolling.

Tizen is dead.

Y is it when nokia officially announced that symbian is dead, it was flooded with ifandroids comments but in here, it seems nothing. No 1 cares.?

Atleast symbian lasted for more than a decade, wyl bada, not even a quarter.

If you want functional skin touchwiz is the best...
go and ask some s3 users why they bought s3...most of them will say touchwiz....
I doubt you have tried touchwiz nature UX....
