Funny thing, I finally replaced Wave with Blackberry (OS 10) to be aligned ergonomicaly with my work phone. Removed the SIM card, put into flight mode. After several days I took a look. Battery is still at 73%! Seems it will last some weeks... anyway, even with Bada (2.0 actually) limited use, it's a great phone. Good battery life, excellent display, metal frame etc. But I didn't expect more buying it four years ago.

S8500 is one of the best phones in history. Lack of Android wasn't never problem. Samsung gave us choice by releasing I9000 Galaxy S in the same time, which has almost the same specification. Staying with Bada which has lack of fireworks "forced" us to use this phone as it was intended. The biggest flaw of Android is that it gives impression that your phone can do so much more, that it can be like PC or game console. But it is not and it will never be, because what makes your PC a PC and your console a real gaming device is software developed for specific environment (Windows, iOS, PS, Xbox).
Sooner Microsoft or Apple succeed in blending mobile and desktop experience together than Google. But for that we will have to wait a little longer for mobile hardware and desktop software meet in one place.
Anyway great phone, great battery life, superb LCD and it has hardware buttons (which I really appreciate, especially in winter).
After 3 years of using Wave I can say I made a great choice. And I will be using Wave as secondary phone until its days will pass.
i am using android since a long time this phone may not look powerful but believe or not i played asphalt 8 and real racing 3 and a lot of hard games using android on this phone without( a few ) lags and whatsapp and a lot of more apps this phone is simply amazing even the disgine , if only this phone comes with an android os i swear i would by it
BUNNY, 22 May 2014I have this phone bought from Australia , Vodafone branded in 2012. It Still Runs on Bada 1.0 ... moreIf you want to have a useless laggy phone that will hold the battery for 1 day that install Android on it. Bada is stable platform that is very generous on the battery life.
madscff, 24 May 2014http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2400126 there you go pal any questions mai... morea single core phone which uses a preety old hummingbird chipset may not do well with android, that being said your phone may lag a lot, may misbehaves at times if you use the android OS on it.
