Forget Bada 2.0. Superior audio quality is gone. No more sound profile to choose. It's hard to increase the maximum volume for the Music, voice call volume etc. Picture quality is not impressive as before. Wonderful music player in landscape mode is gone. Music settings in the Music Player itself is gone also, you have to go to Setting icon in your menu everytime.
Bada 2.0 is just pure cosmetics. But you can still upgrade for the sake of having new in your Wave.
Usman, 03 Jul 2012Bada 2.0 is still awaited in Pakistan. What a pathetic OS and Samsung is also disappointing it... moreBADA 2 is still unnavailable for TPH Operator-Free phones in Portugal as well.
But anyway, from what I've read around, many users that upgraded are not so happy now cause some useful definitions were not included in BADA 2. Besides, it's lightly slower and increased power and data consuming.
Personally, I'll stick with BADA 1.2, it does the job perfectly and for my use, there is no app I'm missing.
And it still is a great phone!
BinKo, 10 Jul 2012Yes you can increase volume using the same code in bada 2. I id it. But the changes wont show:... moreThanks......
Can we do reset my Bada 2.0 to restore the factory version/released version Bada 1.0?
I did try reset my Wave but still in Bada 2.0
The best phone ever I had.. Truly amazing.. Loud speaker n clear!!!! Screen is so bright n clear either.. Compact and handy.. Speedy cpu and fast start up time.. Plus.. Needless to worried about scratch.. Because the screen is gorilla glass n body 100% steel.. Amazed..
Wadebrosh, 08 Jul 2012Just Upgraded to Bada 2.0. Can we still increase the maximum volume(music, voice call &... moreYes you can increase volume using the same code in bada 2. I id it. But the changes wont show: the numbers will stay the same but in reality they will be changed. Strange but true, try it...Remember to write somewhere the original values in case you need to change back to original.
Just Upgraded to Bada 2.0.
Can we still increase the maximum volume(music, voice call & etc) using the *#197328640# code?
I can't change the values from 0 to 6.
Your opinion and experience using bada 2.0 is highly appreciated. Thanks
Bada 2.0 is still awaited in Pakistan. What a pathetic OS and Samsung is also disappointing its customer in Pakistan.
Yes, there are so many different mobile phones (nokia e71, black berry) earlier than wave. But it was something of quality and regard. Still compatible for the most part of telephony, light use for reading or video capturing.
Major drawbacks after upgrading to BADA v2.0. Here go's the List:
Missing, Music ID.
Missing, Pause option in video recording.
Missing, on fly brightness adjustment during video call.
Missing, zoom option in video call.
Missing, adding Image and video files, during video call.
If u dont want miss these very important featured, do not upgrade for BADA v2.0!!!!!
Black_wave_rocks, 27 Jun 2012I wish Wave had 512 MB of RAM, the RAM mangement in BADA just sucks. after installing 2.0.1 i ... more
"Even if i want to change my phone, i dont find any proper upgrade, I want android with build quality of Wave."
We're on the same boat. Still waiting for that phone to come.
I've been using the S8500 wave for two years now and I still impressed with its features and I'm enjoying swipe and it never went in for repairs, I get three days battery with heavy use incl listning to music, I work on da road so I get a lot of calls and music is constantly playing. I'm using bada 1.2 and I'm enjoying it, I'm very sacared to upgrade to 2.0 because of all the bad revievs I'm reading. Please advise if it's advisable to upgrade to 2.0 or stay on 1.2. Thanks.
Yes it is a good window phone with dvd writer and with 500 GB memory. Amazing just RS 4999. I AM USSING IT FOR 15 YEARS
I wish Wave had 512 MB of RAM, the RAM mangement in BADA just sucks. after installing 2.0.1 i need to restart phone atleast twice a day to play any hd game.
When i bought the wave it was fastest in the market, lot faster than android
but today even Galaxy Y feels smooth for test responsiveness.
Build quality is superb, audio quality is fantastic but this OS is CRAP
Fed up with you BADA
Even if i want to change my phone, i dont find any proper upgrade, I want android with build quality of Wave.
I am using Samsung Wave 1 for 2 years now. No problems uptil now, never ever went to service center. Although a lot of knowns reported the phone to be problematic it worked fine for me. Battery backup was great too until I upgraded to bada 2.0. Still battery backup lasts over one day. I think that is good enough considering today's smartphones. No match for Android but still a good phone for not so app savvy people
Android 4.0 beta is released !!!!
2 years of usage and phone is still great: battery, camera, speaker,.. Did not like Bada 2 at first but now it is Ok. That is with phones like that, that Samsung has become number 1 in the world. But i will probably get soon a new Samsung with Android and big screen, GS2 i guess. Too little applications with Bada.
