Although Wave is a great phone, Samsung software suck big time! I'm using Wave for about 5 months and after I've come to know it inside-out, it doesn't look so nice now.
BEFORE YOU BUY SHOULD KNOW:
- although it has PowerVR SGX 540 GPU the 3D performance is lower (very few fps - ex. hero of sparta 2) and laggier (ex. raging thunder 2) than on iphone 3G(s) - samsung made a very bad 3D video driver
- although it has Wolfson chipset, the audio driver is unoptimized even for use of the system sounds, sometimes is making some cracks in the speaker when you browse the menus, the piano apps are jittering and laggy, almost 75% of gameloft games suffer from these poorly written drivers
- although it has a GPS module, it suffer from poor signal and buggy interpretation of the satellites radio signals
- KIES is a abomination, if there's an update available, you should prepare for problems, if you have more than 200 apps downloaded and connect your Wave prepare to wait for about 5 minutes to install an app, many times KIES will not find your phone or disconnect all of the sudden.
Samsung make great hardware, but the koreans don't know nothing (good) about how to develop some basic working drivers, needless to say a whole operating system ...
[deleted post]I bought a 16GB class 4 sandisk card from chandigarh for Rs1500.
i dont think there is MUCH difference between galaxy and wave.
1. Galaxy has bigger screen but the resolution is same as that of wave.so,there is more pixel density in wave.
So,wave is better than galaxy in this respect.
2.wave has BADA(linux based) and galaxy has Android.
i used galaxy and personally didt find anything very different or enhanced than wave.Infact ,wave is much faster and smoother than galaxy.So,people who r saying that android is much better than bada,can they tell me wats there in android????????can someone pls tell me?

The older versions or that came on CD might have got problems..just update to the latest version.I guess most of ur issues get resolved.

u can hate wave,love wave, criticize wave but cannot ignore it thats where wave is successful.all phone gurus come here and post this phone is **** compared to "bla bla" actually they have nothing to do while their laggy phone opens an application they utilize this period.

Anonymous, 30 Nov 2010it depends on firmware you have... till JH1 it is there.. in bada 1.0.2 it is not there..sad partYes Bada, then sad la..many thanks
Does this phone get its updates in the US? Is the headphones(that comes with this handset) audio quality good enough?
Ear phones that comes in package are very quality( i have sony ex 85 and sennheiser cx 500).My two old ear phones are nothing better then this samsung earphones.Music from wave has blow my mind.Exremly quality !!!! Built in equliazer are awesome and realy do the job.Screen -there is know word wich can describe this technology.Bada leave all other operating system in shame.So fast,so easy to use,so powerfull...I had all my life symbian and android, and those two look ridiculous compare to bada.I heard that bada 2.0 will put them to history.
I am a BIG phone freak and i had in my hands all newest phones-i phone 4,htc desire hd,nokia n8,samsung galaxy s... i and can say that this phone beat all of them.This phone is SO freaking fast.Response is amazing.Other phones look like garbage compare to this beauty.Design of phone is master piece and almost fully made from steel.The screen is the most advanced screen in the world,other screens look ridiculous compare to super amoled.Bada is AWESOME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't want android on wave, i want bada !!!!!!!!!!! Bada is so fast i stabile and don't have lags at all.Android is far slower and with so many lags.Bada is so easy to use and so beautiful.For about year or two, other operating system will look like crap compare to bada.THANK YOU samsung for this amazing phone, thank you so much !!!!! You are destroyed other companies with this phone.So POWERFULL, OMG so POWERFULL
The real price of this phone is in rang of samsung galaxy s, maybe even expensive,because wave is almost fuly made from steel and because of power led flash.The reason why this model is so cheap is because samsung want to promote a new operating system.I have used all operating system and i must say that bada is the fastest,the most stabile operating system ever made !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bada don't lag at all,bada don't have bugs,bada's speed is out of this world.Touch response of this phone is unreal.Remember that bada is several mounths old.I can only imagine how fast and stabile will be bada 2.0 or 3.0.
android,io4 and poor symbian don't have any chance against bada.There are over 2000 aplications and the number grow every day.Bada ROCKS !!!!!!!!!!!!
