Just a simple advice: don't buy it now. Wait a few months, when the hardware and firmware bugs will be fixed. Every phone has bugs. And it will be cheaper too. And there will be more apps too, more colors...

On a scale from 9 to 10 Samsung S8500 gets a 9. Legen - waait for it - daaary Amoled screen, tha colours are amazing. You can see everything under the direct sunlight. The phone is ultrafast, excellent ergonomics. The battery can handle 2 days of extensive usage, 3 days of normal use. Some neet applications, obviously, Samusung has to enlarge their number. I am pretty much into photography, so the camera played a significant role in making the decision, what phone to choose. Samsung really nailed it! You can control ISO, WB, Flash, not to speak about the video-recording, which is "un vrai chef-d'oeuvre". With Samsung S8500 you can forget about Lightroom and Photoshop - the phone provides splendid photo editing. The speaker is perfect, I had to turn it down not to get deaf. THe webrowser is very good-looking. Highly recommended, iPhone is nervously smoking outside and biting its fingernails.

Is there any non-qwerty keyboard in portrait mode in the "Messages"?
This is the type of phone I've been looking for. It looks like an actual phone that will be comfortable to use while on call. Does anyone know when it'll be available in Canada? Thank you in advance. :)

When downloading widget thing the widget shows it fillng up with water & wen full its done downloading..Ive got 5 homescreens with 1 app on some & need to get used to it cause still admiring the WAVE..Wait till u see size of box it comes in its tiny..Feels solid in hand. App store will grow & is sorted into free & paid apps..To me its very android like..love it so i am off now to study booklet on how to use it ..oh & SAR value is 0.988 W/Kg ..
I got it thursday and its off the scale,its the most bright clear,liqid ink black sensitive screen ive used/seen ..Mp3 player is A1 using cx300 senheisers ..Smooth video playback/record ,pretty good battery using 5 brightness..
i already use this phone,this is awesome and cool phone, the camera is very good and the battery is not drop much, it can stay around 3 days
ahhh???, 06 Jun 2010Does anyone know how long is the battery life if I just use it for messaging? My 5130 XM need ... moreI got it just a few days ago and I can say that till now battery will keep alive about 4-5 days - (few times checking email via Wifi/day, some minor surfing and having fun with apps). Strange thing is that after reboot cell shows "no power" even after full charge. Another reboot and evertything comes to normal. I have to say that this is best performing cell I've ever had (My previous handys were; HTC HERO, then s7220 ). The display is remarkable and full metal body reminds me my previous V3i (they both share the same colour) which I trouly loved. Wave is very well built, software is fast and responding, capacitive touch screen detects even the slightest "touch".
If you want superior sound that can match the iphone 3GS not in the price but the performance, go for the Wave. iphone is better only on its name and the number of applications. Others were surpassed by Wade, rather Wave.
