at last i saw someone with enough intelligance.you'r the man cooza.you are abselutrly right about screen.just i want to know do you heared any news about that 10 pages problem that i mentioned before ?
Manish, 15 Dec 2010Samsung wave II s8530 available in kolkata,india for Rs. 17,700 !where????
Yohann, 15 Dec 2010Thank you so much ......... and also to Cooza (did i get the spelling right?) ........ this ph... morefor me i honestly think this is a good phone.i have the wave s8500 so know what im talking about as far as using bada goes.to me bada is smoother and more stable than android and if samsung keep working on it and it gets as many apps as android it will then be more recognised as a really good OS but because its new people seem to be scared of it or something.if you go to the mobilereview web site and see the tests between super amoled and sc-lcd yourll see that super amoled might be better in direct sunlight and in the main menu for its dark blacks but in the image gallery and video coulor quality sc-lcd gives (to me anyway) better more vibrant coulors.it may be the same as the s8500 but when it comes to spain ill be getting it cos i want that bigger screen.also will be upgrading my s8500 to bada 1.2 and then ill have two awesome phones.
I am totally happy with my Samsung Wave, it is a great phone and works like a charm. If (or when) I am to buy a new phone, I certainly wouldn't buy the same thing (because that's what they pretty much are).
Available in India (Pre Order) on Flipkart India at Rs.18999/-
Johny Walker, 14 Dec 2010of course yohann.its excellent.just one little problem that must solve and its Perfectto.you o... moreThank you so much ......... and also to Cooza (did i get the spelling right?) ........ this phone seems pretty nice and the review was also not that harsh as other phones...... what do u guys think? is this a all around good piece?

of course yohann.its excellent.just one little problem that must solve and its Perfectto.you only can have 10 page app and if you need more app you have no choce but delete some old ones..
Hey people... does the Wave II have T-9 texting? kindly let me know please. Thank you. YSJ
i cant believe you people just listen to one site and judge by that.S8530 is way better than S8500.i agree LCD brings more power drain tahn LED but quality is undeniable.samsung always bring new tech to their devices and make them better.I'm pretty sure SCL beats SAmoled.please check the link below and see by yourself then judge...
If You can do the same with Galaxy S I9000 without the back chin & the additional specs I have quoted, I would be delighted to pay you whatever you ask.
If possible please try to fit in a 3000 mAh Lithium Polymer battery, we need the juice and it will not increase the thickness much.
Samsung R&D guys please give it a shot. Pls folks.
Dear Samsung Team Please Please Please bring this handset in DUAL SIM, DUAL STANDBY, DUAL ACTIVE, DUOS version, with the following additions in it's specs:
Irrespective of what the critics say The New Wave II is a superb phone. Indeed S-AMOLED would have been better. But there are a few more things I would like to add to this superb looking phone:
>Along with Quad Band GSM also give World Band 3G connectivity, making it truely a world phone.
>Another unusual demand is that I want this phone to be a DUAL SIM one like the STAR DUOS B7722.
>Kindly increase the battery capacity to 2700 mAh Lithium Polymer one, the increase in thickness won't be much, but performance would definately improve.
>Now it is possible to put a Dual Core 1.5 Ghz Qualcomm processor with Dedicated Graphics chip and minimum 32 Gb inbuilt Memory.
>Give a minimum of 8 mpx Autofocus camera with 1080p full HD @ 30 fps with dual LED flash and a 2 mpx front secondary video call camera. This should be the minimum standard.
>The screen could be further increased to 4 inches Capacitive Gorilla glass. With samsung's new plant we can expect Super AMOLED2 in this handset too.
>Wave was very good in terms of hardware and we used to wonder if Samsung could put Android in it, it would be much value for money. So why not put Android 3.0 in it.
>Well since I am asking for too much, can you guys also fit in a side sliding physical QWERTY keyboard.
>Your KIES is not much up to the mark, can we have something like the Nokia PC suite. It is a much better one.
Samsung I love your creations, they are superb devices, but why leave one thing or the other lacking.
I really liked the Star DUOS B7722, but I would like to have a handset with the above specs. And yes, DUAL SIM handsets have a large market in INDIA, provided you deliver the goods and have some niche in it.
the samsung wave II is better than htc wildfire...coz wave has fast processor than htc wild..also the sam..has secondary video cam for videocalling....its my idea...
Hi, im planning to buy this phone from other country, is there some easy way how to put it in english? do you havtu re-flash it with english ROM or something.
Thanks for answer
lin, 12 Dec 2010guys, what is the different btwn samsung 8500 wave and 8530 wave II? obviously the size but n... morethe difference between the wave and the wave II is the touch screen. the wave has the scratch resistant super amo-led screen which is far better than the wave II's lcd screen. LED screen is much more clearer and crisper resolution than LCDs.....
ayon, 04 Dec 2010it is a great phone. i bought it yesterday. so good looking.Hello i congrats for to purchase the handset[wave8530]I read your opinion in gsmarena & like to ask you about the handset.did you using the net with this hand set? What is the performance about speed during browsing.
I just read one blog about its bad performance....please need your suggestion on that...mail on email@example.com
Love you, you are great and thanks for your indepth reviews. Please don,t give any unwanted advantage to any phone.From your review of Wave 11. it is very clear that qualitatively Wave S-8500 is far better. One thing is very confusing and thats battery life of wave 2. Standby time 800 hrs, 2g talk time only 6 hrs. against 8 hrs. in 3g. Is it possible? I doubt ? Where is your dedicated battery life test for Wave 2. Please add as it is very important aspect of any phone. hope you will listen soon. my doubt is that it should be worse.
