This must be the worst smartphone I ever bought, if it can even be classified a "smartphone". Using this now for almost 13 months. I am totally disappointed in this phone. I moved on to Android, which just feels more matured in general. BADA totally sucks. I won't recommend this OS. It misses alot of the basics that other OS's have...
Even the official firmwares have a lot of bugs. You will always have to be careful using the options in the phone as the results are not always predictable.
there is a error 8001 sometime when i download application from samsung application incompatible oss update firmware to download application.... itsmostly when i download 3d games? how can i update firmware..
When i m click on navigation, one synchonisation licence query comes. anybody can say why this happen. and if i m click on "yes" is it chargable??????????
I m facing problem since i have purchage this phone on GPS information any remedy to geting this information....pls reply
This phone is useless due to its operating system. I've regretted big time buying it. My primary needs were Skype, Windows Excel, good GPS software in India.
I've been waiting 1.5 years for a Skype app on Bada, and despite make news that its coming soon, it never came. Recently they made some cheap java app for Skype chatting and cheated the customers.
I can't install QuickOffice on this phone - another reason making it useless.
I can't install MapMyIndia maps on this phone, unlike any android, windows or symbian phone.
You will always feel left out by missing on the great android apps. Samsung has never cared for its bada os customers, never made any good apps for them.
Bada os is 5 years behind android marketplace.

Those are waiting for TALKING TOM for wave -- can download a exactly similar app "BADA BAR" through KIES from dutch store.
And yes, i haven't specified anything that only a phone with monster h/w like gs2 can afford. Most of those things have been in the air even with 300mhz phones having 64mb ram.

day before yesterday i flashed ma wave s8500 to xxla1 and believe me its f... moreNo offence. Here is another face of the same coin.
1- you still can't download archives (rar/zip) or big mp4 files using the same dolphin browser.
2- color tone adjustment in video player is gone. So is mosaic view.
3- still no custom equalizer in audio player.
4- gps still takes ten-times more amount of time to lock than nokia symbian phones.
5- picture editing is gone (i dont know exactly, as i have never used this feature)
6- u can no more pause a video recording
7- widgets disappear on their own.
8- still no voip
Anyways i m on xxkl6, not keen yet to flash onto xxla1 as most forums suggest that there isn't a gr8 diff.

If you really did get bada 2 through kies update. What country you live in now? Pls confirm where currently reciding. That's really not hard to say, right buddy.

Try nexus rom custom very few bugs and performs very smooth. almost all hd apps and previous bada apps I installed runs on this FW. But remember not to run flash theme you won't be able to run hd games due to its limited internal memory. But all in all excellent FW.
