tissot, 19 Jan 2011hey man now you are talking sensible, good. as far as galaxy 4 inch screen with same resolutio... moreDear's
I own both 8500 as well as 8530. Screen size there is big difference while watching photos and videos. Clarity 8500 is best. Sound quallity 8500 is far better than 8530. Video is same. Browsing is faster in 8530.

tissot, 19 Jan 2011hi, kartik just wait for some time, wave II will be available in 15000 only. it is super duper... morethe default browser is good. the camera quality is better than WAVE. S-LCD is brighter.

jatin, 19 Jan 2011need help...
i am not able to open .xlsx files in the phone...
it shows "corrupted file... more'.xlsx' is an incompatible file format in Wave II.
Save it as 'Excel 97-2003 Workbook' in '.xls' format in your PC, move it again into your Wave II and open it there without any issue.
[deleted post]Anybody think that the samsung app is a big joke
You will not find one app that you feel its worth
tissot, 19 Jan 2011hey man now you are talking sensible, good. as far as galaxy 4 inch screen with same resolutio... moreYou insane, contradict your own point. While there is no font size manipulation, the default font lets you more free space to manage other graphics in the bigger screen on Wave II than on Wave, which was bit clumsy with same big fonts.
Again you contradict your view. If you need to dampen the brightness manually then what is the need of the higher brightness in Super AMOLED. And for your kind information the brightness in Super AMOLED does really affect your eyes for a constant viewing from a close range. I feel it so even while watching it in naked eye in a dark room on the Super Clear LCD of my Wave II, which is less bright than Super AMOLED of Wave.
Color in Wave 8500 is more vibrant, everybody should agree. But color in Wave II is far more natural than in Wave, which attracts me more because I was a painter (only was and do not have time in my busy schedule now) and like photography a great deal.
And for your information I had option of buying both sets; Wave S8500 from Kolkata and Wave II S8530 from Delhi, and I bought Wave II for having Bada v1.2, .4 inch bigger screen and better and latest firmware in it, apart from only going for the Super AMOLED.
You value your hard earned money, very sensible. This is a feature of a person who pays his every drop of sweat behind his every earned penny. That's really great to listen that both you and I belong to this group of mankind as well.
But man, isn't it even a bit satisfactory if you pay only a few bucks more to get the best for yourself. And I really wonder what does a price difference of Rs. 400/600 or even Rs. 800 matter while you buy a cell phone of about Rs. 17/17.5K?
You became so passionate about Wave 8500, wasted your time behind considering to buy that and it went off the showrooms. Many other people flaunt your darling in broad daylight and now your sweet-heart is dead. She must be the best for you eyes only. Then why do you try to compare her with others? She had some lacks, but she was the best in the world for you. But you should know that there are better sets than your darling in the market.
There are a few comparison video between 8500 and 8530 in Youtube and some comparison article in some other websites (for this google your own). Go, check those videos and you won't find much difference in screen brightness and clarity but you find a considerable difference in size which creates more room for everything in Wave II.
Man, we are consumers and we are never happy about any price tag. But the fact is we need to digest the reality and choose the best within our budget, obviously.
I know that Samsung is playing the game mentioned in your comments. That's quite true. But at the same time mostly Samsung and after that HTC and Micromax have created a whirlwind of price and feature revolution in the mobile market and catching up its competitors so fast that market shares of the market leader Nokia dip quite sharply and Nokia has to bring down the price of its handsets and make them feature rich in recent past. So they know how to pull the consumer base to their favour and that is why Samsung does not fool us, rather satisfies consumers like you and me in a healthy way.
You lost the opportunity to fill your pocket with a Wave S8500. I very dearly suggest you not to lose the opportunity to fill it with a Wave II S8530. If you are a bit angry about the unavailability of your darling now, wait a bit longer, you will calm down and the price of the Wave II S8530 will come down below Rs. 17K too. But go for a brand new Wave II S8530. I promise you will be overwhelmed and I promise your joy will be more as you will wait so long to marry the younger sister of your dead sweet-heart.
And last of all, very sorry to be remained as Anonymous while shouting back to your indiscriminate war-cry.
Never mind, mate....... hahahaha!!!
I am planning to buy this phone. Users please give your suggestions on Web browser,load speaker, office document viewer and editor etc. It is mentioned in GSM arena that it's browser does not have text re-flow. Is there any option. Can we download opera Mini.
i am not able to open .xlsx files in the phone...
it shows "corrupted file type"
what to do.....????
I own both phones and have been using them for some time now...I can safely say from my hands-on experience that .4 inch larger screen is a fair trade-off for Samoled...not much difference with Slcd :)
I am ready to accept that any one of them is miles ahead of the other, but only from someone who has used both and not some fanboy (no offence meant to anybody)...just trying to share some practical experience, thats it
Given a choice, it would be really difficult for me to choose one over the other, honestly
I baught this 2 days back. firstly I planed to buy wave 8500 but this had been dicontinued. I became very unhappy with samsung because my mind was stuked on SAMOLED. Even after all that I baught wave-2 8500. I tell u I am very much happy to own that. I got bigger screen, newer version of BADA & SUPER CLEAR LCD screen that is not so bad that the people says. I compared this with galaxy s screen and I found not much difference in screen clearity. I take off these two in sunlight also but there was not much difference in screen clearity & visibility. I liked this phone very much. Thanx samsung...
Firstly people fought between S-AMOLED and S-LCD. I would say the discussions on the screen were like a World War.
Now people are fighting over the prices saying Wave II is not worth more than 15,000.
No matter even if the phone is not worth 5000 Rs also, thats fine.. Owners of Wave II are not gonna feel bad about the price they have bought whether its more or less. I bought Wave II for a solid price of Rs 18,600 and a screen guard for another Rs 300 which would make my budget Rs 19,000 for Wave II. But I dont regret spending that amount.. If I would have waited for a month I would have saved some bucks, but the feeling to own Wave II made me to buy it earlier..
Not only mobile, each and every electronic device depreciates in value as each day proceeds.. but that doesn't mean we have to wait till the price comes down. If we wait, we will not be able to buy anything..
(No offenses on any other model holders).
Anonymous, 19 Jan 2011Seems ppl are pissed off either due to superiority of Samoled over Slcd and .4 inch bigger scr... morehey man now you are talking sensible, good. as far as galaxy 4 inch screen with same resolution, look 1st, it has different os. 2nd, ofcourse it,s screen is not as good as 8500 due to large size and same resolution. I researched more then you. fact is that samsung was finding it difficult to sell galaxy in the presence of 8500. they hade no option but to retire one and obviously it was not expensive galaxy. this way they save galaxy.
but man we are not here to discuss these issues. samsung came with a bigger and heavier 8530. considering it,s size they could have easly put 4.0" screen into it and it would have some perfect compensation for the loss of samoled. replacing it with 3.7" lcd is no compensation. .4" increase hardly make any difference. samsung is only encashing the popularity of 8500. I was planning to buy 8500. I plan and plan and in the meantime it vanish. most of the people here are like me who lost the opportunity and now looking towards 8530. samsung know this very well that it could not meet the demand of 8500. so it is just encashing the popularty of 8500 by wooing customer with .4" increase in lcd.
thats why i strongly think that it is overpriced and should be around 15,000.
Hey folks...it seems that the new Wave has stirred up quite a hornet's nest...well m currently on to buy a smart phone and i am absolutely puzzled between Nokia's C7 and Samsung's Wave2. Please throw some light on what my decision must be. Actually i have been a nokia fan..but i just want 2 make sure that i dont leave out a potential better contender, just because of the 'nokia charm'. I am also impressed by the processing speed of wave2..and many other features which make it real close to the C7. The one thing that pisses me about C7 is its fixed focus camera and the O.S.(just dont know why they dont make symbian smarter!..its so age old although functional). However i currently think that the C7 is much cooler though the Wave2 is newer. C7 also offers tremendous storage which absolutely suits me, cz i normally wud hav GBs of songs on it. And guys if you have some knowledge of the cameras in the 2 cellfones, please tell whether the C7's 8MP FF really loses to the Wave2's 5MP AF?..As u can c..I am completely lost and my decision has been pending for over 2 weeks now!..please help..:)
