[deleted post]Ok. . I have been using wave s8500 since two months. I bought it coz of its amazing hardware. But i have to say i am disappointed with its OS BADA. It lacks support and apps. Even while syncronising email, it gets disconnected when the screen backlight is off. U can't even do multitasking with java apps. For eg, if i am downloading something in opera mini and suddenly if i have to go to contacts, then downloading stops and opera mini gets paused in background. It gets disconnected in 2G network most of the time and its slow compared to N86(running the same opera mini). Even the default browser of wave is very slow and doesn't support text reflow. Poor flash performance. Wave's camera is good for a 5 megapixel and HD video recording is extremely good. Apps like opera mobile, nimbuzz, fringe, etc are not available for wave. Most of the times i rely on my N86 for camera, email and internet browsing. Samsung Wave2 is also same. Just bigger screen and has Bada os v1.2.
I suggest you go for N8. Even though symbian is critised a lot. It gets ur things done. And the 12 MP is amazing. The N8 looks very attractive and very good to hold ( i played with it as my friend has it ). And mostly women like attractive phones and they do click photos a lot, rather than playing games or other things. N8 has plenty of apps available. It has 3 homescreens with widgets (wave has upto 10 homescreen wic is generaly useless as, wen its filled with widgets, it shows 'not enough memory' ). I am planning to sell my wave, if i find a customer. And then i will buy HTC desire hd or nokia n8. Samsung never again, coz of its poor user experience, lack of apps, irritating software, etc.
Go for nokia N8 or C7.

I have had so many problems with this w995.
The newest official update made the phone lag a bit when writing sms, which annoys very much.
Also, there are a lot of features missing, e.g. the search in the walkman playlist is basically very poor, also, you can't turn of the sound when you are taking a photo, change background colours (you can only change the whole theme and wallpapers), video quality is very poor, and so on. There are a lot of these little annoying problems which made me sell my w995 and buy N86.
Sony ericsson never again.
Holy God ! I got a 4mb photo today with my n86. It was at indoor, close up, sharpness set to 'hard', colour set as 'vivid', exposure '0.3', iso set as 'high'. . . . For the first time i got a 4 MB PHOTO.

So for that, u need to install JBAK TASKMANAGER, which is available for free. then run this app. press the menu key (diagonal key) for 4 times(no long press, just simple press), then press n hold it one more time, that makes it 5 times. And hulla, the multimedia menu pops out which is hidden in n86. remember in the 5th time, when u press n hold, keep pressing n holding till the multimedia menu appears. . . . .

i want to buy N86 again if its available in market, coz my n86 looks old now. i just love my n86. it easily beats my bros 7.1 megapixel sony digicam. now my image size ranges from 1.8MB - 3.4MB with colour set as vivid, sharpness set as hard, increasing exposure, etc. . . .i don't like touch screen phones coz they are too big in size. n86 is perfectly fitting in hand. just can't stop loving it. . . . its the ' KING OF 8 MEGAPIXEL '
