what is the difference between Samsung wave S8500 & Samsung wave 2 S8530 and Samsung wave2 GT-S8530.
Streaming videos like youtube and internet images are very poor. Poor antialiasing.
Hope this is updated in Bada 2.
Applications are very less and those few which are available too is chargable in Samsngapp store.
I have failed to find in this phone how to change the vertical QWERTY keybord to ordinary numpad - I need it to be able to write SMS with one hand. The rewiev on gsmarena says the numpad keyboard is present - where is it? Anyone can help?

As fasr as "unprotected lens" goes, i think they are using the same scratch resistant glass as on the front screen. Haven't tried scratching it but it just feels like that.
Wave's are really good phones hardware wise, but Samsung has the worst:
- support (doesn't really exist)
- bugs reporting (it's impossible to do)
- firmware/BadaOS changelogs (there aren't any)
- and slowest software developement and support cycle
I have the original GT-S8500 and just like all the other users of this device, we are blindly waiting for a BadaOS 1.2 to happen and then just find out nothing got fixed because you can't report bugs, you can't establish a contact with anyone from Samsung and since there aren't any changelogs you have no freakin idea what they improved or fixed. I also get the feeling that since the Wave II announcement, original Wave was left to rott. When Wave III will arrive, i'm prety sure the same will happen with Wave II. Samsung seems to be a neverending monster that's churning out new phones and doesn't give a damn about existing customers. I'm sure anyone who pays 400+ EUR for a phone feels the same. I'd understand such level of support for something that costs 50 EUR, but certainly not for something that is this expensive. Makes me wonder how those Samsung users with 700+ EUR worth phones feel...
guys..whether i should go for c7 or wave 2..am totally confused..c7 has amoled wch is better than slcd.but wave has 1ghz procesor whereas c7 only 680mhhz..screen is bigger in wave & even the battery capacity.symbian 3 or bada..?buys please help..
Just got my new Samsung Wave (II) 8530. This phone is superb on the first look and it's just what I have been wanting for. Waiting to explore more this weekend. Happy holidays
rahul480, 20 Nov 2010I know that its confusing when both SAMOLED and SLCD are compared side by side. I am sure if w... morehey rahul.. this phone is available on flipkart.com.. :D :D it cost 19k.. :D :D
1200 msg i already considered good,my samsung jet only can store around 200++ msg,it sux!!!!!!!!!!!!!!DUN BUY SAMSUNG PHONE EVER AGAIN
Thanks for the great in-depth review, best one on this phone I found so far!
A few more questions though:
- Does the built-in browser have Flash 10 or older version? Are there alternative browsers available for bada OS?
- Have you tried syncing the device with Google (calendar, contatcs, tasks?). Does it work? Can you give more details about the PIM applications (especially calendar) and how they work?
- How about updates for bada? Will future versions of bada run on the latest devices like wave 2?
I read in a comment that the BADA OS (even in V1.2) is only capable of handling 1300 messages max. Is that true? I cant believe because my old Touch HD with that old WM6.1 currently handles 8300 messages (SMS) without any problem. Why should a manufacturer like Samsung bundle such a nice hardware with such a loosing software?
Thanks for clearing that up!
has anyone experien ce or know, that there is an antenna prob on the wave II?
has anyone experience (with a test model or else) about syncing PIM data (mainly contacts and calender) to Win / compi or a Debian client? Or has a product sheet stating that that works??
Anonymous, 21 Nov 2010The major selling point of the Wave was it's SuperAMOLED display, not Bada. Therefore, no Supe... moreSuperAmoled consumes high energy capacity, there fore this screen seem sto be ok for me and prserves accu runtime.
Sails, 23 Nov 2010Its Clear Black Display. A new tech that is debuted on C6-01. E7 is also going to have it. Mai... moreman,where u were,didnt u read the gsmarena review on screens,samoled is better than cbd.
Nah, I'll skip this one and wait for the next one with the super duper lcd screen that will be released a couple of months after. Or the one with the extra super amoled screen. Or maybe the next one with the extra super duper lcd screen. Or maybe the next one with the super above super among super duper amoled screen. Or maybe that other one that I've heard that will be called the greatest super great extra super ever highest level ever super amoled screen, hahahahaha.
