After few days of using Wave I'd like to share some thoughts.
The phone feels great while holding it. I don't have large palms so the dimensions are perfect for one-handed usage. My thumb easily reaches top screen corner. I would have problems with any larger device.
The screen is superb and no one can deny it. Many people prise the new iCrap but I'd choose Super AMOLED any time for color saturation and extreme contrast ratio. Just ask yourself how often are you in direct sunlight watching movies or playing games?
After upgrading to the newest firmware (..JF1) Bada OS doesn't disappoint when it comes to usability. No problems with Kies on Win7 64bit either. There are lots of great features on this phone, basically everything I need.
Hardware simply is superb. 3D capabilities crunching 90 mil triangles/sec are very impressive, its more powerfull than PS2 :). It'll eat any iCrap for breakfast in this department. We just have to remember that the full potential is still to be revealed. Just wait for a native C++ Bada 3D game and not just a quick port from other platforms.
Battery is great, better than I expected, and after turning off some of the options it holds for almost 3 days.
I've never been so excited about any phone. This one is a dream come true... Highly recommended!

I hope the ugrades will fix it... Not quite sure though for those who upgraded to the JF FW... I hope there will be a major FW soon..
As I am travelling to US from India, is that possible to use the same Samsung Wave in USA for 3G???I found the HSDPA frequency in India and USA is different.
The phone sometimes does not play flash videos..instead shows a small flash icon with "9" written in the place where video is to be played. Is it just my handset or is it a general problem.
I have enabled the "run flash" option in Internet settings.
