philm, 20 May 2011I have had sgs2 and sold it ,,it is too big for me.It was a flawless device but i tried it so ... morehi since u had both galaxy s1 and s2 can you tell me how was the music quality thru earphones in s2 compared to s1 asking because s2 supposedly has a downgraded audio driver yamaha chip. was the volume sufficient? this s the only thing stopping me from going for sgs2. thanks in advance
come on guys, tried n tested, Video Keeper app is awesome! it allows you to download youtube videos right away!
Is it true that the samsung s8500 wave can be upgraded to android?
Have this phone for 2 years, best one i had, everything is great. But obviously as i predicted Bada won't be very successful, so my next phone will be the Galaxy S2 mini (if it ever comes out !). But i am in no hurry to change, cannot see anything to my liking now.

Ie s8530,i9000.i9100 and of course this.All good screened ,good audio/video/cam/battery type smartphones.I dont know what to do i wish the s8500 had a pull out keyboard and Android.
At the moment getting my concert hall settings from sammy g600.I have the money here but what do i buy.
I used the i9000 successfully with darky 9.5 Rom but it had no led flash,so i am just stuck unless they bring out i9100 mini ..
Finally I sold my Wave two days back. It was a good phone. But it had one single moderate firmware upgrade in one year time from bada 1.0 to 1.2, even that isn't much of an upgrade, having T9 Trace and Dolphin 2.2 Web browser is nice, but it's not worth the wait for an one year long update.
Happy journey to the remaining Wave owners, hope bada 2.0 will come someday for Wave S8500.
Going for the GS II i9100 as soon as it releases.

my samsung wave is most of the time slow in response. or not that responsive as i may say compared to the ones i see on youtube. i dont know if the problem is the os or the phone itself. could anyone help me to fix this problem?
Hi Wave 1 users,
I was on the Samsung Wave forum site earlier (using my phone, connected to WiFi) and clicked on a .jpg wallpaper to download. It gave me a "Unsupported Content" alert. I don't understand why. Any similar experiences?

If the resolution is too high it will not play otherwise it will play in your device. Wave S8500 supports most popular formats like AVI, MKV, WMV, 3GP, MP4, Xvid, DivX..etc. Make sure to register your phone with Divx to play Divx videos
