The difference between the S5250 and S5253 is only the languages (apparently!) - however I can't get my S5253 to be recognized in Kies. Perhaps they don't yet support it?
The 5.1 channel is for headphones. Listening to music, watching a video - whatever. It REALLY enhances the sounds. I am very, very impressed by the quality change with this.
There is no official statement saying the Bada 1.2 or any future releases will be available - but there's no official denying either.
The appstore is somewhat small for now; but so was the Apple Appstore when they started up, right? ;)
For the guy who chipped his screen - ouch! Take it back to the store and see what they think.
The touch screen is very responsive, messages can be threaded or singular, the wifi is great - no different from my laptop wifi, I'd say.
Umm, so only problems I've found is no Kies support (yet??), cannot mark all emails 'read' at once, and can't figure out how to turn off EDGE..
Some people can't find the Maps. Simple - use the Google widget that comes pre-installed on the device; it has a 'Maps' button :)
I'll check back here again soon to see comments, I suppose..
Can anybody tell me difference between this phone and S5253 Wave 525 which i found in samsung middle east site

He is obviously comparing with Nokia's stupid resistive screens which is what Nokia insists on giving you in this price range.

Zeeshan, 06 Nov 2010Well, Sum sensible person could tell me, Is der ne way to change the colour of menu background... moreU can download themes from samsung apps. Most of them are free. Otherwise there's no option to make ur theme background black like the old samsung.
I just bought this mobile today. Bada is really , it looks good although does not have much applications becoz Bada is new in market.At least its better than nokia's outdated symbian.

Gowtham, 05 Nov 2010Hi Sum1 Sumwhere India,
S5253 lacks 3G application for its start up, only way to use it is ... moreI bought this phone two days ago (GT-S5253).
I have maps.
The only way to get use them (I've found..) is to use the Google Widget that comes with the phone..
The Widget has a Search bar, Maps button and Mail button (thought the mail button opens up Gmail in the browser)
Also, I can't seem to find any version of Kies that supports this, yet :(
It supports the 5250, but not 5253, it seems. Still waiting for updates, I suppose.
