get your facts right before you post anything
This phone is a Gem, a complete multimedia phone. The pictures in the gallery flow so smoothly, pinch zoom very smooth, plays most vioeo formats even .MKV files (the chosen format for HD/BR movies). Just name one nokia phone that palys MKV.
Anonymous, 18 May 2011i have decided to buy wave 2 by reading all the opinions posted. but still no one has commente... moreI have used the Video call on Airtel 3G. I belive the phone is very capable but the 3g network in NCR is not very stable as of now. The video of the called party is sometimes very clear but most of the times it's blurred. I wish samsung launches an update or an application which displays the vioeo of the called party on full screen and other options only pop up when the screen is tapped.
i planning to buy this phone..what do you think? i need some opinions...
samsung wave 2 or samsung galaxy ace ?????? plz help me out...m totally confused..please
Anonymous, 19 May 2011anyone know how to use the birthday widget, i don't know how to store birthday dates in contac... moreIts simple.
Anyway u need to put the birthdays in the calendar.
2 ways u can do that: Directly go to any date in calendar..enter into it...input an ANNIVERARY
go to any contact...EDIT > enter his/her b'day.
But that calendar widget and the calendar itself doesnt get synched with ur facebook profile (if at all u synch ur fb contacts to ur phone's contact list) ...for that a free app there...download nd use the app 'Bday Reminder' .
Hello ba! Your review is so so goOd! It makes me feel happy that i chose the right choice! Now i'm so proud that i'm owner of wave II. By the way, how old are you? Are you 5 or 6 years old clumsy boy? Haha! According to me, your review is so so false!almost all of it!,haha! i think you don't have the rights to be an owner of wave II 'cause you don't know how to use it, :D i guess you should switch your wave to my old nokia 3310! Hahaha! Good day ! ^^
anyone know how to use the birthday widget, i don't know how to store birthday dates in contact pls help.

I can find directions , it also has latitude. For all this to work properly you need to have GPRS connection. Use the link below to get the map

GOOGLE and GPS: there is a dedicated google map widget, factory supplied, use that, it supports all ur requiremnts u mentioned...zoom..location-find..touch. It even gets synched automatically with the GPS status of the phone. U didnt explore this phone and spreading rumour..right dude? :P
TASK MANAGER: press and hold the middle (physical) button...its the task manager. ok buddy? :)
One need not be a tech freak to understand Samsung's OS (BADA u meant I guess), its simpler than atleast SYMBIAN and RIM and HTC. The problem arises when a user shifts from a low end SYMBIAN phone to any other OS' smartphone. To pluck arose u need to know how to avert the stings, rite? I guess u faced the same problem.
PC software: upgrade to latest KIES version. It supports more features (the ones u mentiond from NOKIA suite).
& finally, criticism is ok, but dont post anything if u havnt tried that or u r ignorant bout that. WAVE II is still the best fone in its range even after 5 months after its release(India). Its still ruling in the segment. Samsung's own one GALAXy (at 19000K MRP)is a close competitor, but that lacks metal body and camera flash.

no task manager - although no use - there is minimal multitasking
if in a week u r not able to know about the features of a phone, it in itself says a lot about user friendliness of the phone
u need to be a tech freak or an IT expert to get things work on samsung phones - not at all user friendly - ppl say there is a way out - yes there is always a way out - u can make ur own OS - or simply u can opt for another fone
just see nokia - when u connect it to PC for internet it even shows how much data u have downloaded and can notify u after a certain limit
verdict - fone has its own limitations and advantages, so try hands on before purchasing - but a great fone 4 girls
but its true that shopkeepers promote samsung like anything - durability is another issue with samsung
kindly dont take these as negative comments - this is an open forum and the views posted are only for the benifit of users to choose the best phone according to needs - kindly correct me where i m wrong - improvements r always welcome
also i still dont get how u can open menu while on call - i tried but didnt work for me

This phone is not as bad as you say and you don't even know its features since you have not used it much.
1. multitasking doesn't mean that reading msgs during a call. It is also about running multiple application at the same time. Press the center button continuously you will be able to mange multiple apps.
2.To go to the menu just press the center key. To exit the app press the End call button . U should understand this is a different OS not Symbian.
To make a call in contacts menu, just swipe from left to right on the contact name , it makes a call. If you want to message swipe right to left, it goes to the the message menu. This is easy and cool than having a call button next to the contacts.
To view the sent item, inbox and outbox you must select folder view option.
3. For internet , activate your GPRS or 3G if you don't want to use WiFi.
4. if you want to play good games you got to pay. You can't expect every thing to be free.
5. About Google maps dude first search then comment.
Use the link below to download Google maps.
6. if have seen many smart phones which last for only 8 hours. This phone lasts for 2 days.
Read the users manual before posting negative comments.

1)multitasking ==>just press lock key and open menu and do whatever u want to do.It locks screen at the time of call to prevent unnecessary touch.
2)if u want to use going back and there is no button it means just press menu key.I think u didnt use any other Os.(Yes u used symbian a lot....no regrets i have too.)
3)open ur eyes and use the fucnctions of NPC samsung suite for using internet on pc.
4)For games i think u dont like HD games provided by gameloft and many more.Seems u like Mario,tetris and contra.
5)Gps-- u didnt try to download.it isnt OS fault.I have google map in my wave.Just google it my dear.
6)baatery it lasts 2 days at normal use.It is more then sufficient for a beast like S8530.
Ya my nokia 1100 battery was much better from this(:D)
See the world around u with High end Multimedia sets.U will observe that wave,s batt is damn gud and better than others.(Consider the apps,u r using,Screen size brightness etc)
So i think u should think twice before posting.
