Anonymous, 09 Nov 2010is Samsung S5250 Wave525 better than galaxy 3 answer fast plsMy dear friend,
Pls. do not compare Wave 525 and galaxy 3 in terms of operating system as they are quite different. Android is very popular and Bada is just arrived.
For me, it is depend on your budget Wave 525 (7600) and Galaxy 3 (almost 12000/-). If you have very tight budget of not more that 8000/- then Wave 525 is very good option but if you have budget of 12000/- then I would recommend you Galaxy 3. Also see me brief review of Wave 525.

You can not remove default icons but there is an option in settings that it will arrange icons as per your usage.

How is the ringt... moreI have bought Samsung Wave 525 at 7600/- for my brother and would like to give a brief Review:
1. very Good Screen Clarity
2. Very responsive touch screen (Touch 3.0)
3. Cool Operating System, quite fast (Bada 1.1)
4. Very Good Audio Output in Headset and Speaker (Lot of presets and 5.1 surround sound is just awesome)
5. Samsung Apps is also very nice, you can install lot of application
6. Video quality is good (but only 240 x 320)
7. Samsung Kies (PC Sync Software) is also good bcoz it has almost everything like Samsung Apps, Video Converter, Backup Management, Firmware Update, etc.
8. Document Reader (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF)
9. Multi-Touch Screen (Pinch zoom)
10. Good Music library
1. Screen resolution (only 240 x 320) but it is not noticeable if you haven't use Galaxy & Wave
2. No Camera flash
I am using this handset since last 3 days and able to find this much only. But in future will try other things like Internet (GPRS & Wi-Fi), Samsung Apps on GPRS, etc. and will post it.
This handset is really value for money (7600/-) bcoz it has lot of features and sound quality in 5.1 channel is simply amazing.
Please can anyone let me know about the battery performance of this phone?
How is the ringtone volume?
Hi I bought this phone a week back .... Its quite nice... but is there any option of customising our own widget menus and removing the default items...???
plshelp, 09 Nov 2010ok gowtham !! yeah but how's user interface is there...is it cartoon like or wht ????..and how... moreUser interface-Quite good, never hangs off or restarts at any cost.
No idea abt bada os, since i'm not familiar.
Spent whole 2weeks wit s5253, no problems so far, in the future too, i presume:)
They provide apps like tumbling dice, parachute dive, cricket, pacman, jewel tetris.
Right now 7 of my homescreens(10 is the max no. of homescreens) are filled wit apps downloaded from samsungapps:)
ok gowtham !! yeah but how's user interface is there...is it cartoon like or wht ????..and how is bada os...? any special features like adobe reader office viewer ?? or games.like cricket ?..? hows there applications softwares ??
I have both Nokia X6 and this one. Both have capacitive touch. But Nokia is more...more sensitive than this one.But always mind the price.In this context it is sure value for money.
plshelp, 08 Nov 2010ok gowtham....do you have this phone ??
how is it... ??
i'm using symbian os from past coupl... moreHi plshelp,
It works better than the mmediocre models of nokia(5233/5230/5235).
Only -ve in s5253 is the picture clarity due to 256k colors. But i consider it tolerable. Worth to buy.
Never hangs like a crappy phone, i ve 5gb occupied of my 8gb card.
Go for it:)
I bought mine in Indonesia.. No leather case, no CDs, no Micro SD included..
Yes you can multitask.
I didn't know about Bada either - but decided it would beat any propriety firmware, because it'll be updated for a range of phones, rather than just one :)
This phone runs TouchWiz 3.0, so it's quite nice.
ok gowtham....do you have this phone ??
how is it... ??
i'm using symbian os from past couple of years...but seriously i never used samsung bada..! even i dnt knw abt it !
