Bought the Wave 8500 just 2 weeks after launch...and the only regret is that the number of apps are fairly limited. It has better hardware than even the Iphone4(SAMOLED is far superior to the Retina Display) Bada OS maybe new, but considering this fact, it is still nearly flawless. The beauty of BADA is it capitalizes on the strongpoints of the Android and the iOS platforms, while neglecting their weaknesses. By having this phone, you will never miss an iPhone or Android phone.

This would be possibly the most dysfunctional phone that I have used. It has some good features, screen etc., but they are completely swamped by poor design and bad implementation. Forget the lack of apps, I don't play games and don't need them, the phone is irritating in that it constantly requires several attempts to select the right app from the screen. Half the time it acts as though you have selected an app at the point where you touch the screen in order to swipe. Its battery life is as bad as the early analogue Nicad powered phones. I am used to BlackBerry Storm II and iPhones as well as some using Android. All of them are superlative by comparison to the Wave. We have just been given five of the annoying little time wasters as free upgrades to existing plans. We are about to "wave" them goodbye and insist on fully functional phones to replace them as NO ONE on the staff has a good word to say about them. For those who are familiar with quality smart phones, they are a joke. For kids or some for whom this is their first smart phone they might be acceptable.
airtel 3g is launched in delhi and jaipur also.just sms 3g to 121.
SIP Call are working Samsung Wave s8500? which software are working in 8500, plz tell me.
I'm using S8500 Wave for about 3 months and I'm so impressed with the device battery life and inbuilt softwares. Still the app market has to mature since bada is new. If samsung can fill the market with usefull apps, there's no phone to beat Wave's configs and stunning performance.
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2011"2.Bada does not need any update." Are you serious? I hope you're not.
hey u kid,do u even knw wat is BADA OS???? I think u dont hav a clue bout it.Its based on LINUX os and the bada 2.0 has allllllllllllllllllll the features a phone should hav.i hav nokia 5800 also.it is the worst handset ever.NOKIA is gone now.No more symbian for me. And as for android ,i dont want to waste my time to see my phone getting hanged and restart.
BADA OS is the best OS in d history with no hangs wat so ever.
