SidewindeR, 11 Sep 2010So since you're coming from symbian bg, you might understand well the shortcomings of Bada. Wh... morethree things I like to be present in my phone:excellent camera,excellent apps,excellent screen.
samsung wave has an excellent camera and its flash is what made me preferring it on the galaxy and I can't live without the video light but i don't mind an extra xenon flash.
since my old nokia 2.4" screen phone i've enjoyed watching movies on my phone screen and now wave offers the super amoled screen which i couldn't resist especially when there are times when i am stuck in work and no TV allowed ;)
but for the apps Bada is still new and i knew i will need to wait at least 6 months to get the apps you've mentioned.
few months before the wave i bought a windows mobile because it offers some important softwares for my job which were not available on 5800 nor n95.
now i am still using both phones so i don't feel like missing anything:)
Kaushal, 11 Sep 2010Thanx god! We wud nt hav 2 see u again on our Wave forum 4m next mnth. Kidding man! Best of ... moreWho said I will be gone? I will have my Wave too. lol..Just the purpose of it will be changed from Primary to Secondary. So confused between hTC and Samsung, lets see...
I am really struggling these days to get an upgrade for my phone...
Not sure which one shud I pick!! N8 or Wave..
Few things preventing me to get Wave:
1. Video calling via Internet is blocked for ever (bloody restriction)
2. Limited multi-tasking (atm)
3. Not enough support from developers yet
4. Edge class 12 (not 32)
But I like all the rest of its features.. In fact I love them ;-)
Nokia is still not releasing N8 .. idiots .. not even giving an official release date .. they are too slow like their Symbian >:O
But I like the N8's design, HDMI out, and unrestricted nature of Symbian..Yes, symbian is bearable if and only if Nokia does right with their pricing..hmmmmm but N8...not sure .. might range from 25k to 28k INR.. which is a bit on the higher side than the copetetion.
I have had enough nbr of Symbian phones before. But not now :) and so have mental piece (no lagging, crashing, restating bakwas anymore) but miss few Novelties Symbian brings..
Somebody told here that .. Symbian UI is highly customizable.. If they are talking about the themes available for Symbian, yes there are hell nbr of them out there..but are they really good nd usable??
The problem is that if u use any other 3rd party themes ur Nokia is prone to laggs and crashes every now nd then.. I guess most of the Symbian users have had the same experience.
PS: By Symbian I meant only the released versions..not S^3.. still waiting for its release and Review before rounding up on N8..If it fails to deliver again like S^1..I am done with Nokia and Symbian for ever.. will get my Wave..
To be frank I am a little biased toward Sammy..becos it delivers what it says it would. But really not a fan of their mobile software. And really hope Bada grows faster and make the world's best Sammy's h/w utilized to its fullest extent.
SidewindeR, 11 Sep 2010So since you're coming from symbian bg, you might understand well the shortcomings of Bada. Wh... moreu are talking about mails, and all
and about torrent downloads on symbian ...
i have core2duo, 4gb ram pc , and 512kbps net . whats that for??
if i hav to run net on mobile????
guys 5mp amera is enough......its mobile not digital camera...so if we bought a 12 mp camera phone ike n8 the pictures are not as good as a digital camera.....
bada is way better than symbian.....i have also nokia 5800 and its too slow .....

What I hate about bada is the closed nature of the platform. Though it supports apps tailored for the platform, the os is not optimised to use the phone's available resources to the max. You know very well how easy it is to configure push mail and not to mention backing up personal data in symbian. And also the freedom of installing apps downloaded from other sources. With Bada, you still have to depend on samsung apps and what they provides. if you look the other way round, symbian has more unrecognised apps than bada has in the whole app store.
Don't you miss skype and fring? Or the oldschool GPSP emulator that is able to play gameboy advance games? I think you would most certainly miss opera mobile and google maps (not the java variant) and not to mention free navigation.
i'm increse the music player volume at 62 ..the sound is excelent and the bass is fantastic...but the ringtone volume in not increse at 90
SidewindeR, 11 Sep 2010I hate restriction BTW and coming from a symbian BG, i would have to admit that though symbian... moreya surely . it depends on personal choice,...
i am not convincing u to say bada is good than symbian..
u think symbian is better than bada..
ok so let it be the case for u..
but for me its diff...
good luck then and buy n8....
phones fan, 11 Sep 2010may be you are right Bada is not mature enough but it is still better looking and faster than ... moreI hate restriction BTW and coming from a symbian BG, i would have to admit that though symbian is kind of on the slower side (not as buggy atleast with the latest gen touch phones) what i really like is the lack of restrictions imposed by the OS. For eg symbian browser can download any kind of file regardless of whether the phone is able to open that file or not. And currently symbian has almost everything you need like a proper doc editor, 3rd party video and audio player, even a torrent client. In addition symbain also supports a myriad of 3rd party themes and apps that can tightly integrate with the OS. Like for eg: opening a torrent file from file manager will automatically open the suitable torrent lient that is installed. These things just makes life much more easier. Sometimes usability really counts than speed.
SidewindeR, 11 Sep 2010How come you simply say that Bada is better than symbian. Just imagine symbian on samsung wave... morebefore the wave i was a symbian user and i like symbian but symbian does not fit to wave because wave is a very advanced phone with a fast processor ,big ram and very it is a very stylish phone and symbain is not user friendly it will make my wave looks like it was built in 2005.
I don't mind andriod or iOS running on my wave because there are a lot of similarities between them and Bada.

Best of luck wid FROYO nd GINGERBREAD nd etc etc.
SidewindeR, 11 Sep 2010Mate... take my advice.. go for N8 and you won't regret it. The problem with Bada is that Bada... moremay be you are right Bada is not mature enough but it is still better looking and faster than the dieing symbain ,nokia only trying to gain some time by symbian until meego becomes ready.
by the way Bada has a Doc editor.
to Jke: if the camera is the most important thing for you in the smart phone go for n8 but you will miss the video light and the torch.
abhi, 11 Sep 2010i know bada is not best . but yes its certainly better than symbian cheap........ if u dont e... moreHow come you simply say that Bada is better than symbian. Just imagine symbian on samsung wave. It will be the best combo. All that hardware power with the flexibility and customisation of symbian platform will make it a killer combo. Thoguh I hate this bada, I really really love this phone. it's so tempting and i've been eyeing this phone for quite a long time now. Unless samsung comes up with a major update, bada is still stuck in the mud.
abhi, 11 Sep 2010acc. to me 3.2 mp camera shoud be enough for all purposes.. unless u want to create a wallpape... more@jke
I think a gud 5MP cam shud b d max nd min u need 4 ur day 2 day activities. If u want more, better go 4 a digital camera. N8 camera howsoever good can never beat a digital camera 4 obvious reasons. Phones battery is shared while dat of a digicam dedicated solely to one thing. Thats why i bought Wave instead of waiting 2 buy N8. Rather i bought a Sony digicam 12MP for Rs 6500 for photography on special occasions. The cam of Wave is enough 4 day 2 day photography except if u really r into photography or media business.
Though frankly i wud loved 2 hav USB OTG nd dedicated Google goodies in Wave.
Jke, 11 Sep 2010I'm between Wave and N8 :S
I like good camera quality and N8's better for it, but symbian^3... moreIf you want good camera then why are you comparing N8 with Wave's? You better take a look at Satio for comparison. and Symbian 3 is poorly customised but still I think its more matured than bada. After using Wave for 2 months now I really feel thers is no such useful application for bada. It's definitely not the number of them but the quality is. Looking forward to get Galaxy S next month.
When will this crappy os get updated?
Will samsung ever update it or we will be stuck with
the bugs like for ever? The os is good but it still needs
to be updated for sure.
