I had purchased Wave 3 about 11 months back...Was very unfortunate decision to have this...there is no Watsapp n o skype...BADA operating system is worst..pathetic service given by SAMSUNG......Request to SAMSUNG that please upgrade this (BADA) so that we will be able to get watsapp, skype.Also upgrade Samsung apps.....almost all applications are paid.............Please do the needfull to upgrade BADA as soon as possible......Shiv Sandeep Singh 09906139952..Jammu & Kashmir.

Ok.....Ive had the Samsung Wave 3 for over 5 months now.... What I feel is that its an Awesome "Media" Phone.. i.e. great for Music, watching Movies and Videos, The Screen is unmatched for any phone in this budget , and the HD camera has awesome Video clarity in good light. The Main problem here is that , its not atall a good Networking Phone in the sense ...theres No Whatsapp, no skype, not even a decent Gtalk /Facebook app. So...Ive started using my Brother's 2 yr old LG Optimus One phone for Whatsapp etc.... WIll use the Wave just for Media... Its really sad, if samsung could give Whatsap/skype /Nimbuzz for BADA , then this phone wld be better than most phones out there..

No cover on the miniUSB? Much worse sound quality than the first Wave? Why?

if anyone is thinking of buying this phone, dont even think about it...
Im currently using this phone and it is not at all worth..
Its multitaksing is very poor...
Camera is not at all good..
Apps are not suffcient in samsungapps...most of them are paid...
if u have a budgget to buy this phone, please dont waste your money on this. There are a lot better choices in this range...

Just suppose you get a Galaxy IV with an attractive AND durable body like Waves' — all metal and Gorilla glass.
You won't buy a new phone again in a year or so - because the old one still looks almost like new, and the OS gets regularly updated (think Cyanogen).
Now this is the last thing Sammy wants, right?
Nothing personal, just business - like in any other trade.

What i don't understand is why does Samsung pack such wonderful hardware specs and features into such rubbishly supported OS ?

And what wonders me the most, why are Wave 1 and 3 inside a metallic case, but higher end Galaxy phones are all made of freakin plastic. If you want a proper metallic phone you have to use stupid Bada, but if you want Android, you're limited to full plastic case. What gives!?

What i'm wondering even more is why doesn't Samsung offer all models with all operating systems? They have bunch of all the same phones on the market so why not release all 3 OS for 1 phone model? So i could chose between Bada, Android and WP7 for my GT-S8500. Great phone bogged down by retarded BadaOS.
Some ppl are trying hard to port Android to it but without specs it's a hard task. Samsung doesn't seem to be willing to help at all.
