How to activate in call functions? The option of "press lock & key to get in-call functions" does not work.
The upgraded model S7233E is excellent in performance and it has a new firmware upgrade available now on the samsung kies.
can we play full screen video in it?
can we access ms office and pdf files from it?
Samsung S7230E is in the updated form ie S7233E.
Hands-On Experience :
1. This phone is a worth buy considering the price tag
and fully packed features.
2. Takes nice pictures with its 5 MP camera & built
in flash (which can be used as a torch with the
help of an application - magic torch),correct
colors are captured.
3. Battery Life is pretty good, it will come 3 days
easily with minimal usage.
4. Multimedia player is excellent especially the video
player with the mosaic search option.Output
through the speakers also comparitively
good.Supports 5.1 channel surround sound while
using head phone.Supports MP4,H.263 & H.264 video
5. Lot of options for Internet connectivity :
GPRS,EDGE,3G,WIFI and also acts as a modem for PC
6. Data Transfer is quite easy.You can use USB
connectivity as a mass storage which directly
access the memory card,plus Bluetooth,WIFI and
Samsung Software (Kies) are the other options.
7. You can have as many as 10 home screens with
widgets, which is made possible through the Touch
UI 3.0.Samung BADA OS is really good &
fast,eventhough it's initial release I haven't
seen any bug so far.
8. Touch screen works like a charm and it is highly
sensitive and responsive.
9. So Many Social Networking options -
Orkut,Facebook,Twitter,You Tube to name a few...
Pesonal Email IDs can be configured through
10. Three Types of Keypad - Virtual QWERTY
Keypad,Hand Writing screen and the normal keypad
11. You can directly connect to the Samsung Apps
website and download the free & paid applications.
12. The phone comes with a leather texture flap to
protect the screen which makes it unique.
I haven't found much...
1. Screen size could be big, only [240 x 400]
2. Could have supported more video formats.
3. Browser doesn't support Flash.
Overall all these features makes it a real smart

first of all, thanks for your answer ;-)
But as you can imagine, I've come up with another question that wants to be answered^^
Waht about the menu background colour? When I compare the Wave 723 with the original Wave, the background on the original Wave is black, which looks much better than the white background on the Wave 723... Is there a possibility to change that? And what about using different launchers like on Android? Is that possible on this phone?
Hope you find the time to reply soon. Thanks in advance fot that ;-)
(The questions are free for all of you to answer :-P )
here the some google page which compare adroid vs bada OS ( I am not a fan any phone company just posting what i have searched on google..might be useful for others)
1. Customization and Interface
If you are like me, then you like to customize your phone! No, I am not talking about arranging icons on a black screen. I am talking about widgets, icons, contacts, wallpaper, etc. Both the Android platform and Bada platform are very good as delivering a huge customizable interface for users. Bada is very flashy and utilizes Samsung’s TouchWiz interface. This allows for widgets like calendar, weather, and social networking to be right there in front of you. You can drag and drop things anywhere you like on your 3 home screens. For example, the home screen could have a clock and weather widget or maybe a daily briefing widget and another screen could be for music. It is up to you. One thing to note, Bada is in its early stages of life so there still are some bugs and the OS does need some polish here and there. However, Bada seems to take the best things from IOS (Apple), Android, and HTC Sense and put it all into one which is great.
The Android platform is very much the same as Bada. It offers widgets, icons, and contacts but it does so in a very bland way. You will still get 3 home screens by default but since it is open-source, phone makers can decide what they want to add to it (TouchWiz or Sense) or leave out. Android is very smooth and efficient but it still needs some polish.
Winner: Bada OS
Reason: Bada is customizable and takes the best of the best in terms of features and puts it on display in a very user friendly way without making it bland!
This is where Android lacks but not by much. The stock Android music player in my opinion is the worst music player found on any smartphone. It is ugly, very weird to use, and I have had problems with music tags being messed up by Android. The flip-side to this is again since Android is open-source, companies can do what they want with it. Some leave it stock while others like Samsung TouchWiz and HTC Sense make the experience 100x better! The video player on Android is not bad but not great either. It has limited features but honestly, as long as the video plays then its all good right? The big gripe is the YouTube client. Videos take forever to load even on wifi and the quality is not as good as it is on an iPhone or even a Palm Pre. Android has many options though in the Market to enhances your multimedia experience like different music players, internet radio like Pandora and RadioTime, and other video clients. Android provides a decent multimedia experience but leaves me wanting more.
Bada however, all I have to say is wow! The music player on the Wave is very easy, full of features, and just a great joy to use. The sound quality is great as well. The part of the multimedia experiences that seals the deal for me is viewing videos on a SuperAMOLED display. Videos look absolutely stunning…that is all I have to say about that really. What else can I say? Go view a video on a SuperAMOLED display and tell me what else there is to say except, WOW! Bada also offers apps in the app store to enhance your multimedia experience like Android.
Winner: Bada OS
Reason: Easy to use music player and SAMOLED screen for videos is out of this world. Simple as that!
3. Apps and Development
I almost do not think it is fair to do this as part of my review but since Apps are a big thing, I feel I should include it. Currently, Android has close to 200,000 apps in the market and some tech bloggers say it will surpass Apple by the end of the year. However, the Marketplace is very very unorganized and full of junk. This is a problem with open-source development and I think Google needs to go through the Marketplace and clean it up a bit. Android has the developers and the apps! Also, since Android is made by Google, it syncs very tightly with everything Google (Gmail, Docs, Talk, Calendar, etc) so that is huge plus.
Bada currently has 500 apps in the app store but the development interest for Bada is very very high which is a good thing. Bada is being developed by numerous developers around the world and Samsung has made sure that bada apps have quality! Samsung has also conducted bada developer days around the world so it will be quite interesting to see the OS grow!
Reason: Close to 200,000 apps (130-150,000 not including junk) and the developer support is there big time. Bada is catching up but for now, if you want apps…go for the little green robot!

Freak, 04 Dec 2010Does this phone have a proximity sensor? The Manual says it does, but I read on the internet t... moreHi Freak,
It doesn't have prox. sensor but it will lock the screen during the phone call and you wont have problem even if you touch the screen with hands (accidentally). If you press and hold the screen with fingers during the call, the screen will unlock and shows the options like loud speaker, keyboard option, etc.... you don't need to worry about typing other contacts during a call. It is improbable.
