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
Some cool features are not shown which stand up on comparing with something like Samsung Jet S8000.
Display is oleophobic which means smudge-free.
Primary camera supports slo-mo video recording.
Seconday camera is a videocall camera.
Additional features dont show fake-calls - not generally useful but cool at times :-)
On the minus side, the 2GB internal memory is not all RAM.

elnano25, 17 May 2011Guys stop voting this device, it´s dead technology. The Bada OS has no future.Who cares? I want to use Bada on this phone right now, not on another device in the future, and this OS is working, and it's not going to die tonight, or in the next morning, so it was an unnecessary comment what You wrote here my friend. :)
we vote for wave hardware, not bada OS. wave hardware is superb....for the lower price
