senteron, 07 Apr 2010Yes, the user interface is the only point which is weaker compared to HTC.
Evet\rything else ... moreEvery ones complaining about the UI when HTC's UI has been the same since the release of the diamond with just little modifications. Samsung has grown from its first omnia ui to this new touchwiz 3 which to me is a major improvement over the old ones.
Remember Samsung isn't a software company but have managed to create something better for touch and also easy on the eyes. It is also much simpler to use. Oh by the way Samsung makes the best Camera for a phone period especially when compared to a point and shoot.
Gbit, 07 Apr 2010This phone is the one to have. As for Samsung making bad phones I do not agree. No more, and I... moreget your facts straight before bragging about how big and strong Samsung is and how poor and weak Nokia is... Nokis is still the biggest of all cell phone companies, with 38% market share and over 440.000.000 sold units last year... you're right, Nokia has lost the ball a little, but they will be comming back...

Evet\rything else is better.
Especially divx/xvid support!
And those .mkv playback availability!
You can say: who needs 720p playback on 4 inch screen and you will be right.
But this availability demonstrates muscles - and every company needs muscles on this competitive market.
Well done Samsung!

This phone's features look great. I'll be waiting for it.
Everyone should stop looking at the Camera spec of camera phones these days.. they all suck, just get a digital camera for crying out loud
even my Sony ericsoon W900i 2Mp camera can beat these 5 Mp camera... i have i900 so i can tell...

No more, and I think less, than othe manufacturers. Samsung is the worlds leading telephone manufacturer the only competition is from HTC. Nokia has lost the ball years ago and Iphone has one model so hardly a contender also nazi i-tunes makes it a non-cjoice. I like to tell the phone what to do, not the other way around. I can agree that the UI in some of Samsungs models have been sub par but this is Android with sense 3 on top which looks great. Even their own new Bada system looks pretty cool so things are changing...
wwow a rubish phone with 600 eur cost haha samsung copy from other brand this phone is made by samsung so it is a rubish with very expensise cost only x10
Great phone specification, with all features and specification most of the people looking for...
Aah cant wait long.. when its going to be available ??
Finally, they start to put some emphasis on weight and thickness. The rest of the functions are all fine, but why is it so damn hard to find a light and thin smartphone these days?
Mirham, 06 Apr 2010Sorry bro no chance of this being released before september. Btw, the camera performance is pr... moreSeptember? It means at the last of Q3, then why the hell gsmarena say Q2?
One thing that Samsung has to do : they must sack their current team designer and replace them with ingenious people. A usd 600s has same design with 140 dollar phones??! Give a little bit respect to your customers.
For those who are asking:
1. Why only 5mp?
-only a noob wants a 8mp or up.
-while us wants a better lens!
2. Why no flash?
-So it can have a thin body (9.9mm)
3. Can i transfer photos/videos via bluetooth?
-Yes, Android 2.1 can DO THAT, while you need an extra free app to transfer files (documents, folder, etc)
4. Looks like an Iphone!
-So what? Iphone is made out of Samsung hardwares, just look what iphone 3gs is using as its processor, A SAMSUNG PROCESSOR!
5. Why it has a poor camera?
-It is not a camera phone, i dot even have a dedicated camera key! its a multimedia phone where you get all the media from a HD video recorder or SLR!
6. 1GHZ? why it is not Snappdragon?
-Because samsung 1ghz processor is 3x better than 1gz snappdragon.
7. RAM Size?
-NO ONE KNOWS! samsung is still not releasing it. But i think it got 384MB of ram or more (probably 512MB ram)
8. Document Editor/Viewer?
-Yes! Word, Excel, Powerpoint, ANDROID CAN DO THAT.
9. Web Browser Flash?
-Out of the box? Maybe yes or no, but Adobe Promises a Flash 10 for all android device with a good processor. Now you can play games on Facebook! LOL
- Maybe Cheaper than HTC Android Phones! LOL
11. Release Date?
- Probably July
That is right, S.Korea is now 2015, but japan is still ahead, 2017.
What is multi input method? Also, can you input into the calendar in landscape mode? or do you have to go back and forth to portrait/landscape like you do with the Samsung Omnia HD?

Saurav, 06 Apr 2010Thanks, Any chance of release in late April or start of May? or will it take more time? And Ho... moreSorry bro no chance of this being released before september. Btw, the camera performance is pretty good and on par with wave but I think due to being prototype a bit of noise is visible in full res which I haven't seen with retail wave. And mind u guys the rumor about a camera flash being included is not true. There is actually no room for that. Why want a **cking flash when u get so many things? My bro gonna let me see a android 2.1 eclair running one next month. Hope to give u guys reviews then. Stay tuned.
sai, 05 Apr 2010According to EngadgXX, the price is just below US$700 / 20,000 Russian Ruble.
See the full ... moreThat's def. not the Galaxy S. Because the report states the phones to the left of the Samsung Wave will cost less.
But who knows maybe its a 4gig version..that would still be pretty dope.
