Not a Fan of Samsung, 17 Mar 2010Phone is garbage. Its basically an Ultratouch handset. Why did I buy another Samsung! I am goi... moremy child you dont know what is actually samsung.Nokia is way behind from samsung.The latest mobiles of nokia cant beat samsung's one year old mobiles still. So please first purchase any samsung mobile then feel the difference.
This is a good phone but I hope Samsung will not create a brand new phone first bec. the other Samsung phones are getting older is like Nokia their phones gets older and older day by day bec. they are producing phones to fast and I hope Samsung will not copy their styles and look at Sonny Ericsson their old phones last long bec. Sonny Ericsson company doesn't produce phone that fast bec. they want their phones too last long...
What do you think, what is SAMSUNG 'S-LIFE' going to launch on 23rd march?
Does this phone have a scratch resistant screen? Would opera 5 or 10 work really well on this phone?
wouldn't this phone be better on an operating system that we're used to?
Does anyone happen to know if you will be able to use Skype on this phone? I have a friend overseas and it's costing us an arm and a leg sending international texts every now and then. Would be great if we could have Skype on this phone so we could talk for free. TIA!

I found that: "Samsung Bada only allows one 3rd party (not built-in) program to run at the time, does not allow customization of launcher, input methods, and does not have copy/paste"
I mean c'mooooooooon, no copy/paste in that powerful phone and no multitaksing in no more than one 3rd party app. This has to be a joke...

Check the mini review link i gave.
The attraction of this technology is its speed, when a 20 MB PDF file takes a couple of seconds to open, then you can quickly page through it, zoom in/out and rotate pages.
and just to clarify it does have tv out.
i found a mini review! of the Samsung wave. http://www.mobile-review.com/review/samsung-wave-s8500-en.shtml
Thx me later guys hehe.
*Quote* on battery Life* The handset utilizes a 1500 mAh Li-Ion battery, rated for 450 hours of standby and 8.5 hours of talk time. In Europe the S8500's battery time averaged around 2 days (a bit over one hour of calls, a couple of messages a day, scheduled email checks every two hours and up to two hours of radio). Those who are into mail and web, will be able to squeeze around a day of life time from the S8500..
Playing non-converted video will drain the phone's battery in 5.5 hours, as for the phone's music time, the Jet's battery will last only 30 hours. The Wave's larger battery has given it a considerable boost in terms of life time in most departments
CHECK HOW CRISP AND BRIGHT THE DISPLAY IS VS NEXUS ONE! http://www.mobile-review.com/review/image/samsung/wave-s8500/pic/display-compare/compare01.jpg
