Sure! And while you're at it Motorola and HTC can also go home.
And please price the next SGS below 1.000 USD/EUR please.
"the ui look so android-ish....LOL"
You meant to say TouchWiz-ish ;)
yet!, 30 Aug 2011bada? is't better than android or does it have Facebook and yahoo messnger? make it cheap.. il... moreyes, Bada cannot fight Android, and yes Bada has YM (stand alone app and bundled from social hub)
Well... We all hitting Sammy at the same point, if Wave III is supposed to be the Flagship we at least expected the same specs or even better of the Galaxy S II with the difference that it will be holding Bada 2.0 , we all also pointing out that Samsung is not taking serious their own phones, they are focusing just on Galaxy line.
Wave III is the same phone as Wave I with the slightly difference of a bigger screen and NFC support. If you look the new specs on GSM Arena, this screen is draining alot from the battery reducing the time to enjoy the phone.
If Samsung really wants to dethrone Apple from being in the first place they will have to take SERIOUSLY all our comments and needs and bring to the Wave III at minimum the same specs of the Galaxy S II with Bada OS obviously
Also Im thinking that Samsung will bring their best next year when they finish the SAMOLED plus HD screen, thats when they can really place their flagship phone the real Wave not this Joke of Wave III
bada? is't better than android or does it have Facebook and yahoo messnger? make it cheap.. ill buy 1..

Is That'z says wave 3 is such features; Wave1 is still in first place after Bada 2.0 update. The only thing 3 goes over NFC.
It'z better at least 8GB on board, full HD, super AMOLED plus,
plz check whether there's a hardware Shutter key? I can't find
BadassMF, 30 Aug 2011Hi mate, you said you have bada 2.1? how? is it official? thanksHe probably meant either 1.2 or 2.0.1 which is still in beta phase.
If the Wave III is similarly priced as the Nokia 701, then I would think that choosing the 701 over Wave III would be a smarter decision, since Bada has yet to show the maturity to match the ability of Symbian. I say this as an S8500 and an N8 user. While Symbian^3 is pretty much useless compared to modern OS's, Symbian belle is a leap ahead while Bada 2.0 is a simple evolution from its parent firmware.
AnonD-10547, 30 Aug 2011Again a copy cut design of samsung wave y...this time they copied nokia..wave y looks like nok... moresigh, there's always people like you. there are limited ways to design a touchscreen phone.
seen hdtvs lately? do they look extremely different from each other?
heck, if i put my iphone sideways, it'll somehow resemble my hdtv.
Microplex, 30 Aug 2011I will agree with you on the browser front with Bada 1.2, dolphin webkit v2.2 is not that good... moreYes, where is Opera?!! On the current browser (OS 1.2) except that it doesn't support flash i hate that when i put my finger on the screen, the menu of the browser pop's in and i have to wait for it to hide in order to select something from the web page. Happens always with facebook, even the mobile version. About the screen, i love the superAMOLED but i don't like the long&tight dimensions which are also kept on wave3. I would prefer shorter and flater dimensions of the 4" aspect ratio. I don't like the metalic cover as well, it's slipery, i use case-mate rubber case. I want to stay with bada but the galaxy looks more complete deal.
Ahhh finally some metal from sammy.. Now, bring the metal droids!
Microplex, 30 Aug 2011I will agree with you on the browser front with Bada 1.2, dolphin webkit v2.2 is not that good... moreI will try Nokia's Belle, looks promising than Bada . . Bada needs a lot of years to develop . . My old bada now is nothing, no more upgrade to 2.0 . . unlike Nokia has anna and belle for all the old symbian phones . .
samsung has to be carreful of the prices of the new phones...If phones will have a reasonable cheaper prices they will sell like cheesecaces....just to take a biiger slice of the market...
sidmeier23, 30 Aug 2011Bada Os is for dumbphones . . 1ghz sammy phone is useless for BADA, better stick to android . ... moreI will agree with you on the browser front with Bada 1.2, dolphin webkit v2.2 is not that good and its a real shame that Opera have not made a native bada based Opera Mobile browser for Wave and Wave II, that said dolphin webkit v3.0 is much better, has a version of text reflow and also a download manager, much smoother scrolling and ram management (no more cross board pattern when scrolling) multi-touch has been fixed to and the new bada 2.01 qwerty keyboard (which sadly looks to much like iOS qwerty keyboard) is much easier to use than bada 1.0/1.2 qwerty keyboard and yes Trace T9 works better than swype.
As for speed, The Wave and wave II are very fast in bada 1.0/1.2 firmware version, faster than Android based handsets with similar specs like Samsung's own Galaxy S and its even faster now with bada 2.01.
again bada 2.01 looks awesome on the 3.3" SAMOLED screen and will look brilliant on the 4" SAMOLED screen, sure its pentil matrix but I own a SGS2 and the difference between SAMOLED and SAMOLED+ is minimal, and on that end both kick the crap out of SLCD and even normal AMOLED screens (like the Samsung Omnia HD and Nokia N8 both have the same resolution) ...
Looking forward to GSMArena's review of the Wave III and in general bada 2.01 OS.
Bada Os is for dumbphones . . 1ghz sammy phone is useless for BADA, better stick to android . .BADA sucks big time . . slow browser and ugly icons and laggy UI, waste of money, I wont ever buy BADA anymore.
y don't they get us skype and flash player for bada? apps are far less than i expected:-(.
