Battery charge is suck... Only 8 hours having charge... Don't buy this phone...
Have been offerd a clean swap.
An almost brand new mint condition i9000 Galaxy S for my S8500 Wave.
I love my Wave!
The dilemma is ofcorse that the Galaxy is a more expensive phone with Android.
Have no experience with Android but seems it offers moore then Bada. Love Bada though!! Fast and smooth.
The build of Wave is way better then the plastic Galaxy.
The 4" display is nice ofcorse, however I dont surf that much, and it´s a bit much sizewise.
And the lack of flash for cam and video is dissapointing.
Am pretty pleased with the sound-quality and interface of the Wave music-player, even though I´d like a manual equlizer. Is the Galaxy as good musicwise as the wave?
Did not consider Galaxy when I bought my Wave.
Mostly because it was to much for my wallet.
Now I have an opening into the world of Android.
But Bada 1.2 and later 2.0 is not far away and offers improvment to an already excellent Wave.
The question is... shall I give up my wonderful Wave for the Galaxy..???
What would U guys do..!
Input is appreciated..! = )
Touch responsiveness of samsung wave is unreal and unbeatable !!!!!!!!!!!! OMG soooooo smooth !!!!!!!!!
This is without competition the fastest mobile phone ever made, and the guilty is BADA-probably the best operating system today.
So fast,so responsive,screen is something most beautiful i have ever seen in my life,music quality is out of this world,watching hd movies is...
I had so many phones but this is something that you must feel and try.After this phone, you will never want to have some other phone in your life.Bada don't have bugs and lags at all, it's so fast and beautiful.
This phone has wolfson dedicated music chip wm8994 ,but also 3d graphic chip powervr sgx 540 with score of 90 million triangles/sec...he leaves ps1, ps2 and psp behind.Wolfson music chip is soooo powerful, you will trow your i pods away.
The quality of music is something best i have ever heard in my life.
this phone is freaking monster in beautiful steel case.wave eat all other phones alive.you must try this phone and see the power and the speed that is beyond your imagination
For me, the most imortant things in every phone are ESSENTIAL THINGS FOR EVERY MOBILE PHONE such as speed,display,design,easy of use,processor,ram memory,quality of video,quality of sound,smooth internet,pocketable,made from metal,durable,great battery...
In all those categories wave is NO 1 !!!!!!!!!
wave is sooooooo popular.this phone is out of stock everywhere.It is easier to find diamonds these days then this phone.I totaly understand all those people because this is monster for such cheap price.Everyone around me has this phone.Wavemania are all over the world.Samsung has destroyed other companies with this amazing phone.Bada is the operating system of the future.Screen is out of this world.Speed is from some other dimension.Beauty is uncomparable.Built quality is just masterpiece.
sad to find so many haters in such forums..all they do is put in hate comments everywhere.. well i bet this phone is better than the vivaz pro i've been using.. it sucks honestly :P

it's better to uninstall hacked games always before u update. after that install again. it'll work. cheers.

Anonymous, 02 Dec 2010even my old nokia5800 is till gime me 3days battery backup with heavy use..but my wave is not ... moreU might not have conditioned ur battery properly
Ur battery is a faulty one
Do remember that Wave has 1GHZ processor under its belly..don't compare 5800XM with Wave.
Moreover, I am getting 2 full days (48+ hrs) of Battery on moderate to heavy usage. (2hrs of calls, 1hr music, 1hr gaming, 2hr browsing on GPRS and using some other apps and multimedia features for 2hrs)
even my old nokia5800 is till gime me 3days battery backup with heavy use..but my wave is not give me 1days bettery backup with normal use...
i;m using wave last 5months all is good..but one thing is that all samsung owner suffer that is bettery backup is not good.... i'm a nokia hater but one thing is good that nokia phones are good for long time battery backup...
How do you get the GPS working?? and how do i get a app like tracking phones. iPhone can track where you are if your phone is with you.... like normal, nobody leaves home without it. is there a app like the tracker for this phone? please reply..
