scoopyscoopy, 25 May 2010what kind of smart dial you meant? it can do both names and numbers search right on the keypad... morecan you check once more if you still have wave in your hands... becasue I found this in techradar hands-on with wave : ''However, there's no smart dialling here: if you start typing in a number the Wave will complete it based on the numbers in your phone book; we'd prefer it if it worked out what names we were after using predictive text, like the HTC Legend, but you can't have everything it seems.

so it seems there is no 'smart dial' by the names, only by numbers...
scoopyscoopy, 25 May 2010what kind of smart dial you meant? it can do both names and numbers search right on the keypad... moreyes, I meant this kind of 'smart dial' like windows mobile phone, or android devices like HTC DESIRE (just directly from a keypad you dial the name, like you would start to write this name as SMS text).
i really doubt if (among all smartphones) only iphone doesn't have a 'smart dial' as defined above. just for example : what about N97mini, or other Symbian 5th edition? smart dial is not available there...
anyway thanks for your kind answer for my question.
[deleted post]I don't think a multinational company such as Samsung would be racist by not distributing the Wave to the Middle East. What would they get for being racist? In business, money talks louder than anything else.
I'm sure Samsung has its reason for not distributing it to the Middle East now.
Don't be too naive to create any racial issue here.
[deleted post]I dont understand how they are racist if they dont wanna release a phone in a certain area, im sure later they might do but ther gonna aim their main launch at their biggest market europe. Anyway if you want the phone so bad i'm sure its not that difficult to order it to kuwait

Misleading review almost abandon my little Wave. He must be iSheep instead of a good reviewer.

Anyway thanks for your help
waht?, 26 May 2010That techradar "Preview" not review is thw most Biased preview I have ever read in m... moreEverything they wrote is totally mistake
at least on paper
and there's youtube and others which prove their words are wrong
never give them attention
That techradar "Preview" not review is thw most Biased preview I have ever read in my life. I think he played withthe phone for 5 mins at based on those thing he was complaining. I mean he does not even know how to remove home screen!!! He should have wacthed youtube first so he would have gotten the idea. Not that it's that hard. He was just closed minded.
and why should he post a "Preview" when the phone is already out and name it "Review" when cleary he was using the FEB 13 prototype unit.
Again, most Biased "preview" ever. Techradar must be working for apple
Can anyone (specially now owners) confirm the review of Techradar... Please...

guys, i'm getting a phone on my birthday, my uncle had 2 choices this phone and the SE vivaz... which one is better?
Kus umak, 25 May 2010NOOOO i was gonna get this phone on a orange contract as well. can you tell me what they've ch... moreNowhere near as bad as the Omnia HD. I was very disappointed when I bought that phone and saw what Orange had done to it.
Luckily with the Wave, Orange seem to have added rather than taken away. Front screen has their Orange widgets, a bit like what they did with the Sony Ericsson Satio, rather than the SIM free which looks like the front screen as seen in the preview videos. Still apps for Facebook and Twitter, Orange apps is alongside Samsung Apps, apps for Orange Widgets etc. The representative from Samsung assured me you could load up photos to Facebook from your gallery, but without a signal couldn't get online to try it. When you take a photo the automatic option is to upload to Orange Photo.
Camera quality is good (actually think its better than the Omnia HD) and HD recording is great as well. Only problem for me is that UK retailers are selling the 2GB version. I might wait for the SIM free 8GB version to come out as I like to have a large internal memory as well as memory cards. But if I was skint I don't think I'd have a problem with getting the Orange-branded.
