I have this phone for a couple of weeks and would like to list out positives and negatives:
1) Brilliant AMOLED screen of high resolution, 1gb Fast processor, nappy applications, a great pleasure to use.
2)Fast and pleasant browsing with multi touch.
3)Features like 5PM camera, HD recording, FM with recording, flash, 5.1 sterio sound
1) Lack of support for some websites- for example,you cant play BBC videos or open zip files.
3)GPS and location software not that good.
However, I feel that at INR 17400 it is a far better bargain than N8 at 24000, Desire at 26000 or for that matter Galaxy s at 29000. I think the reason Samsung discontinued this model because they realised that they are giving it away too cheaply.
I hope with Bada 1.2 upgrade the remaining issues will be sorted out.

S8500 is as of now the pinnacle bada device until the launch of s8530 in november. Why would they discontinue when Samsung is and has launched a number of other bada handsets.check http://www.gsmarena.com/news.php3 and search samsung to read about the Samsung wave news.
hi i am using wave from last 3 weeks so i want to share few things with you guys.
1. Screen is extremely good
2. Camera and video recording is also extremely good.
1. WiFi Strength if compare to Nokia E series or N Series or with Blackberry 9700, 9000, 8520 very poor.
2. Signal strength of wave i dont find very good.
3. p reinstalled games (Asphalt 5) got slow during game.
4. I download some games in it like Bruce lee, free kick also slow games and if some one installed Bruce lee they might have experience that when you playing after 10 or 15 your phone shut down and start again and i have experience it 5 or 6 times so un-install it.
5. PC software Kies is most pathetic PC software i ever found they have some issues with there back end servers or what ever, if you want to download some game or application which is above 10MB then disconnect several time.
I am using this phone but must say one thing nokia is far better then Samsung but its not final line may be due to new OS they have some difficulties but when you got 1GHz........
And sorry if you find my English poor
Anyways guyz this is what i experience in 3 weeks dont mind if i say some thing wrong which hurt Samsung Wave lovers i also like this phone but at some limit.

hi every one,
I am using this phone from around 45 days. initially there is news of a million sold.... but now there is no news other than that the new handsets having with bada OS. what has happened to Samsung wave S8500. no news of any sales or advertisements on television. no news in any tech shows. & rumors are of discontinuity. what is going on. someone should ask for it to samsung?
