Yes but how long do you have to wait to get firmware updates to your Wave. Also Samsung have not sorted out many BUGS in their phones as many people are still waiting for their older samsungs to get software updates. Also BADA does not have that many Apps yet. All these vital consideration points before you buy into a phone.
Likewise I have to wait for Nokia updates because bugs take ages to get fixes in the OS by Symbian Debuggers. The problem I have with samsung us customer & product support, small BADA APP Store, free navigation, walk & drive & maps provided you have a data connection tariff.
Otherwise I wouldn't mind buying a samsung phone. But their GPS components are still lower class models. Also samsung should be the ones integrating 16GB or 32GB internal storage capacatiy now since they own their own NAND flash chips whether MLC or SLC.
3@j}, Which phone maker would pay you because you use its phone? you'd be see a doctor sooner than later. I am seriously talking to you. Apparently you have very severe mentality disorder symptom.
My Personal opinion about nokia n8:
Hi first of all i am a big true nokia fan untill today.
But nokia let me down.
i was so much anticipated and eager to by nokia n8, today went to book the nokia n8 @ purasavakkam chennai, india.
happen to experience live demo of the retail version.
the camera sucks... what ever spec they have said is true but the color the camera produces is very bad bad,Xenon flash is too bad.
I own a sony c905 8mp camera, i know the pic quality diff.believe me.
Camera itself failed then wats so ever with nokia n8.I am going to buy a android mobile.
Bye bye nokia.
guys think well b4 buying noia n8.
Just a small point.
If you use it while roaming (i.e. outside the UK) then you could be charged a minimum connection fee for each data connection. On Vodafone that's £1, best to check the small print before you set off.
if not mistaken, the data transfered is only a few kilobytes..
Yep, but only as a minor charge. If you preinstall all your maps (Using Map Loader), then you can avoid the bulk of the costs that you would be charged for downloading maps on the go. A-GPS will barely cost you at all, as it only connects for a brief moment upon the initial connection via satellite

Nokia says the N8 has free turn by turn navigation. Do we need data service if we use it? could anyboby give me an answer for that? Thank you.
Just 300 more hits and it will be a new high for any smartphone.
Anonymous, 10 Oct 2010can we save and send different messages or only one default message can be set at a time.You can set the default message yourself, but only one of em. However it doesn't automatically send it after you select "Send SMS", but it automatically fills in the recipent of the SMS and the default message, so you can write a new message if you want to. But as default it has pre-filled the recipent and the message and then you just have to press "Send"

But also, just visit iPhone 4 page or something. There's just as many idiots who are bashing the iPhone and praising the N8. In my mind I sort of do the same, not cos iPhone is a bad phone, but N8 is just superior for me in so many ways. I, however, realise that it's an opinion I can't force down other people throats not to mention that I hate the iphone fans coming here and flooding our forum so why would I want to ruin their discussion too?
Hatred only encourages hatred.
You can set the ringing volume to zero to mute the phone. There are many configurations eg for message alter, vibrating alter, vibrating mail alter,mail alter tone, warning tones...
kodn, 10 Oct 2010Tell me people, how many of these trolls work for cellphone companies that are being threatene... moreTo be honest I'd say not a single works in a cell phone company. Anybody who can get a job like that isn't as stupid as these trolls.
These are mainly just 12-20 year old people who feel threathened cos their phone doesnt have (and never had) up to 96% daily interest, so they have to make their own phone look better.
But it's funny. If their phone was the best, why would it depend on their trashtalking, why wouldn't the numbers here on GSMArena talk for themselves, for example?
Tell me people, how many of these trolls work for cellphone companies that are being threatened by the mere existence of the new Nokia phones especially the N8?
