I went through this product when SAMSUNG introducing it to Sri Lankan sellers. SAMSUNG WAVE is an amazing phone I have ever seen and touched.
I was a Nokia addicted person. But 3 months before I bought Omnia II after N97. Now I like SAMSUNG WAVE. But I don’t like it’s small screen. 
Anyway congratulations SAMSUNG.
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2010owwww c'mon gsmarena... why is it that samsung wave is not listed in the top ranking?... are... moreMy friend your mistaken by the word you have said that "why is Samsung Wave not listed on the Top Ranking" now it is listed look at its "By Rate"
1. Samsung S8500 Wave 9.124 5,152
Why are a lot of you moaning so much - GSM arena is a website to show you what phones are out there or coming soon and the features. The review is GSM team's opinion - if you don't like it don't read it. You may be shocked to know that you can form your own opinion! I like GSM as it can show me good picture quality of a phone and some user reviews are really useful. It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks at the end of the day if the phone suits what you want it to do then try it and see for yourself! This may not be as good as Omnia - I wouldn't know as I choose to have a phone that I feel is better but that's my personal opinion - but this phone doesn't pretend to be. If you don't like GSM not using other brands then go to another review site - there are plenty of them! However if you like to look on the left hand side of the GSM arena website you will notice that they do review Toshiba, Sharp etc... Stop moaning find a phone you like and enjoy it!
After Philips, Nokia, SonyEricsson. (NEVER APPLE), I want enter in the Samsung world with THIS phone(May/June release). Samsung phone are differents. Like this (SuperAmoled), M8920(TrueAPN), I8520(projecter).. Nice....

Samsung, Nokia, LG and HTC is all you ever see on GSMARENA.
... moreThe phones from Japan isn't applicable to the rest of the world. You cannot compare the handsets in Japan to that of the rest of the world because they're worlds apart - Japan might as well be sitting on 4G and beyond.
Furthermore, because of the technological difference I doubt the Japanese needs someone to review a phone for them.
I don't think GSMArena is being biased - it is just helping the vast majority of people look at phones that are similar in nature and actually something they can end up buying.
can some pls. indicate if this phone has the document viwer/editor or not??
john, 25 Apr 2010totally agree with you....... this is a top class phone....... and it should be ranked high.......Oh stop whinging and whining!
Samsung, Nokia, LG and HTC is all you ever see on GSMARENA.
There are some outstanding other brands like SHARP,Panasonic and TOSHIBA that you NEVER hear of. Just because they are servicing the Japanese market doesn't make them non-GSM or 3G.
GSMARENA is biased towards its big names and that's that.
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2010GSM Arena does not like anything other than htc nokia or somenthing else!...
Where... more@annoying anonymous
gsmArena doesn't have yet a review..so please wait for it..
btw..it is not the best phone..lol...try to check EVO 4G and compare this crap..

GSMarena are not sleeping..they are ONE of the best site in www..maybe they are just waiting for a handset so that they can review it..
anyway...dont post such a bold comment if you dont know anything.

Bingo, 23 Apr 2010With so many OS, why developpers will bother making applications for Bada, which is only for S... morehey Bingo, i think your wrong as samsung is a big player and will be releasing i think 4 headsets in total this year with this os (lower specs and hence cheaper then the wave) this will result in a very large untapped market the develops will want to get into. I expect this phone alone to do very well and sell alot as it has everything u will want from a phone comes in cheaper the the competition and the main reason for me wanting it, is that it looks the best.
infact i think most people get such high end phone based on what other people would think when they see them with it, a status think if you like, thats one of the major factor iphones have done so well, as they used to be seen as a trendy middle class toy
With so many OS, why developpers will bother making applications for Bada, which is only for Samsung ? I am sure Samsung will quietly dropped this OS in one or two years...Anyway will buy this phone because of HD video recording, and high quality of Samsung phones.
Read this device was coming out in UK yesterday (22nd), alas it was only a misguided rumour, shows the intense interest in it though here and probably mainland Europe too. Looks like we'll have to wait till June to see just how good SUPER AMOLED really is, all other specs are top drawer for this handset and think if display is as good as they all say it will definately persuade me to buy it rather than rumoured iphone4.
i just read a piece on the techradar.com site with todays date (23-04-2010) which says that samsung have contacted the site to rubbish claims that the wave has been released or is is even instock with 3rd party on-line retailers.they say they are glad with all the hype but the wave will not be released until "JUNE".not April or even May but June.man thats even ages away.looks like a lot of retailers jumped the gun on this one then.man what a downer.im so ready for this phone!!!!!!
