I bought my Samsung Wave a fortnight ago. I did my research on the net before purchasing & I'm not disappointed. I'm satisfied with ALL EXCEPT ONE aspect of Wave. Yes, it has a superb screen & battery, exceptional camera giving excellent pictures & videos,faultless audio quality, very intuitive UI & snappy internet experience. However,it dropped calls 100% of the time if the call was >30min & voice distortion happened >50% of the time.
Fortunately, my shop gave me a replacement but ONLY one replacement here in HK. This time, calls were dropped less frequently & there is no voice distortion at all. Now, when I tested my device, I always phoned people on their fixed lines to ensure that connectivity from their end is not a problem.I also went to different locations to make calls so as to eliminate signal reception problems at a particular place.
I am baffled. Throughout the >150 pages of comments here, not one mentions dropped calls. However, what is the possibility of getting two lemons in a row? Infinitesimal. So I'm wondering if other Wave users can tell me if they have dropped calls as well for calls >30". Thx in advance.

B.G., 28 Jun 2010yeah i want to read that =D im bit of a exhausted i was reading all kind of forums and posts a... moreI bought it directly, not from an online store. You live in USA, yeah? Try any online store from where you bought previously if Wave is available. Or wait for just few days Samsung is in the way to launch it in there.
this review goes for all those who are still unable to decide whether to buy wave or not and are considering gsm arena reviews
well wave supports all flash sites without any lag and all you tube videos.
games run pretty fast n smooth, no lag so far,
phone never lags.
best display in industry so far.
friendly, smooth lucid ui.
i see more n more app poppin up each day (which shows samsung commitment) bt to note tht only 10% applications are useful, rest are crap.
i would also like to put up a few questions to a few wave users:
can anyone tell me bout how to charge battery ?? i mean charging patterns n intervals n what about callibration.
should i charge cell daily even if battery is at 50% and
should i always charge ma phone to 100% or 80% to enhance battery life?
cause i m facing serious battery drainage.
guys, this forum is to help wave users n not to waste time n energy on loosers like brandon who hasnt seen world outside iphone, poor fella, god help him !!!

Pour some water on your head. At least you will have something in your brainless head.
Take my suggestion and buy a Wave and be a smart boy not an arrogant one.

JK, 28 Jun 2010That's some great news! How much do you think it'll be for an unlocked version? Cheers! :)Well thats the only news for now.if i get any more info ill post it here. but come on thats cheap and that is the price for 24months 12months 6months or even 30 days ill guess there will be something with the contract that's gonna decide the overall price of each but till now everything seems like a good deal thats $290 US im getting it if everything is like it should.
B.G., 28 Jun 2010Well i dont know if Bell is a online store or a retail store but they said it gonna be availab... moreHey B.G., I'm happy to hear that it'll be available in Canada next month! Hopefully the Wave will be shipped to the US as well. Btw, Bell is a wireless provider, so I'm thinking it's $299.99 for a 2 or 3 year contract. My guess is it'll be $499-$599 for an unlocked version. Bring on The Wave! :)
[deleted post]Brandon,I thought you have a little knowledge about technology. But I was wrong. You have almost no knowledge about technology..
IPhone is the only mobile in the entire industry that is made and assembled cheaply but sold at a high price.
Apple make nothing of their phone. They just use others technology. Heres a small prove:
LCD by LG.
Processor by Samsung.
Battery by Samsung.
MLCC (multi layer ceramic capacitor) by Samsung.
Varistor by Amotech a small korean company.
FPCB by Interflex another small korean company.
IPhone is entirely assembled in Foxconn that has a very bad reputation on assembling and no other mobile company assembles their except charger.
So is it clear now BRANDON?
No other company copies iPhone.
Honestly no one gives a damn about iPhone.
This is IPhone which copies and uses others technology.
So, so called 'cheap' Samsung makes your iPhone! LMAO..
