I just bought this phone NEW for 1/10th of the price you had to pay 3 years ago. The build quality is excellent, the screen is probably the best screen out there. The video camera is very good. The battery life is excellent, it lasts more than 10 days (without internet). You can watch Youtube videos without any problems, or you can browse the internet sufficiently good, but I don't see this phone as a smart phone, I use it as my second phone, an excellent feature phone.

My good old trusty Samsung Wave finally retired.
Excellent phone overall. Exceptional build quality. Handled falls and bruises like a pro.

Having hard time looking a phone worthy enough as replacement. :)

After 3 years and 6 months, my dear and beloved Samsung Wave's microphone finally gave up on me.

Yes you can convert bada to Android with the ROM available. I have successfully converted using LITE rom (Kitkat 4.4) developed by Hero355. Few things before you do it. You will use all your paid and free apps on Bada. Your Ram will be reduced so you will not be able to use apps which require high RAM. I am unable to play beach buggy which require 300mb ram.
Note: I have just read that you can increase your ram using android app from your SD Card will try out today.
Now the best part you can actualy use google play and download all the apps you want and yes there is watts app also.
