I Bought waves8500 in september 2010.
It was a Pretty good looking phone but there was some small problems...such as
1)a big os problem that causes closing some widgets & running apps ...even when there is enough physically available memory but the os shows the memory shortage message...for example when u r editing a pic (in most of times)u will see the message.
2)sound profiles r limited & u cannot create or rename your own profile
3)and some small problems
BUT NOTE THAT ALTHOUGH THE UPPER THE R IN S8500 BUT IT HAVE VERY IMPROVED ITEMS IN PHYSICAL DESIGN & FIRMWARE(BADA) AGAINST CAMERAPHONES THAT USE SYMBIAN...IN THE OTHER WORDS BADA IS MORE USEFUL THAN SYMBIAN...TRY IT THEN U WILL SATISFY ME
GOOD LUCK TO SAMSUNG WAVE S8500 TEAM...!!!

Samsung Rocks!!!, 12 Mar 2011Is S8530 a better buy than S8500? BADA OS 1.2 for S8530 but SUPER AMOLED for S8500. Is there a... moreWAVE 2 has wide screen but the color contrast seems bad...it is brighter but no colors are true colors when compared to wave 1.think why should the SUPER AMOLED are still used in galaxy S and S2? because Super amoled rocks....i am having TWO 8500 with me as i enjoy both...one great advantage of wave 2 is that it gives a good battery back up than wave 1....
wave 1 will rock forever...
How about the speaker phone of S8500 and S8530? Is sound poor on loudspeaker?
Is S8530 a better buy than S8500? BADA OS 1.2 for S8530 but SUPER AMOLED for S8500. Is there a big difference in the OS update from WAVE to WAVE2?
