Now that bada 2.0 has been released here in Poland, will my previous apps on 1.2 get killed if I upgrade? Eg. a lot of my store downloads aren't free anymore
Omar Mohamed, 07 Jan 2012I think that is not correct.
You need at least adual core to record 1080p.
1 GH... morethanks for the input....but who said that 1080p must be clockspeed dependent?
who says hummingbird is incapable of such?
spec sheet shows it is very much capable...
5mp is way bigger than 1080p just so you know dear sir 1080p is actually only 2 megapixel...
its like saying nokia's 12 megapixel actually has 12mp video...(which is silly btw)
check out the google nexus (latest) it has 5mp sensor but also can do 1080p rather smoothly and no noise...
fact is 1 gig in galaxy s is actually capable of playing 1080p... which has the same spec as the wave
both are disabled when it comes to recording in 1080p though....(in theory because they need to market the next generation of phones, that being the likes of galaxy s2 to be the ones to feature 1080p_

1 GHz dual core can while 1.4 GHz single core can't. Although the higher frequency of the single core!
and even if the processor was dual core, the 5 MP of wave won't be good enough. (Too noisy)
can my samsung wave gt s8500 can be an android phone ?
plz do something that my mobile cn b cnvrted into android phone
wave is very much capable of 1080p video playback and even recording(!)
wonder if someone could actually unleash this on a custom firmware? hehehe!
watched juno and australia and now real steel
not having issues so far with audio quality...perhaps it has something to do with kies conversion? excellent audio quality it still indeed has ^^
can samsung wave can be an android mobile.
can android applications can be runned .
floepke, 06 Jan 2012ware is the official new firmware for the samsung wave GT-S8500 ? , it was promised for july 2... moreNew custom firmware Bada 2.0 Dragon
Opera web browser included
AnonD-5583, 05 Jan 2012No point downloading that BIG game, at this stage. I dont think u wud get that running on wave... morethnx Abhijeet for reply. u r right better wait. Carloud is running "turbo hd" in S8500 after flashing bada 2.0 whereas it only support S8600!! then why not it run that BIG game which also only for S8600, whereas it support bada 1.2 & later versions?
Anonymous, 05 Jan 2012I don't think audio quality suffers in all Wave having Bada 2.0 OS.
Let us hear from other u... moreIn my case I only had an issue with the movie "kingdom of heaven" but in the movie "australia" I didnt have any problem hohoho
thinking about it, I think kies' transfer of audio/video has something to do with it more than bada 2.0 itself I suppose
btw....s8500 was supposed to be able to record in 1080p and play 1080p videos but is being held back by the bada O.S. itself...forgot where it was linked to in the samsungwaveforums but the article presented there is similar to this one:
wonder if someone could hack the wave, to unleash this potential.....it would be really great hohohoho!
AnonD-27987, 03 Jan 2012I observed something too,
it seems video quality is actually better in bada 2.0
alot b... moreware is the official new firmware for the samsung wave GT-S8500 ? , it was promised for july 2011 and now its januari 2012 !!!
Samsung makes many promises but it still not here the upgrade bada 2.01
when they dont delivre the upgrade for my wave i never buy another phone from Samsung thats a fact !!!
AnonD-27987, 05 Jan 2012its a shame that bada 2.0 is having a bit of issues regarding audio quality
its actually on... moreI don't think audio quality suffers in all Wave having Bada 2.0 OS.
Let us hear from other users who upgaded to Bada 2.0.
I prefer my wave with Bada 1.2 having superior sound quality than an upgraded one with a lot of bugs and having Audio problem.
That is a Beta version and you flash it (not using Kies)maybe that's the main reason.....
its a shame that bada 2.0 is having a bit of issues regarding audio quality
its actually one of the few handsets that is powered by the wolfson DAC chipset
which should offer superior sound compatible with the latest HD sound platform hoho!
yeah a bit more sensitive it seems
I also encountered the "screeching" noise while watching "kingdom of heaven"
but odd hting is they arent present on the movie that I recently uploaded on to the phone "australia"
a good thing that bada 2.0 did is that upon pressing the "menu" button while recording no longer cancels the recorded video, it now saves it
in bada 1.XXX it was quite impractical that sometimes I press the menu button instead of the camera button in order to end a record, only to find out that the menu button cancels the recorded vid hoho
now in bada 2.0 it's improved
oh and turbofly HD works on bada 2 of s8500 hehehe works like a charm ^^
AnonD-28909, 05 Jan 2012some1 plz tell me the "turbo hd" game only support bada 2.0 to S8600. will this game... moreNo point downloading that BIG game, at this stage. I dont think u wud get that running on wave1,....better wait:(
And sound quality has really taken a bit of plunge in 2.0. Higher frequency notes are exaggerated. And we never had custom equalizer option :(
It may be a stupid question but forgive me as I am not an internet expert :
Whenever I try to connect phone with Wi-Fi, it says DNS failed. It doesn't matter whether secured network or not. ( I mean that in secured network I give password and Wi-Fi symbol at the top left of the screen is shown as connected and in non-secured network it connects too).
I have tried static and dynamic IPs and almost everything as found in google. My firmware is up to date.
Any idea guys? what can be the reason?
some1 plz tell me the "turbo hd" game only support bada 2.0 to S8600. will this game support S8500 when the firmware update to bada 2.0.1?? & another 1 is the gameloft's game "the adventure of tintin: the secret of unicorn hd" which support bada 1.2 but only for the model of S8600. which is a bit odd! will it support in S8500 if i download?
[deleted post]No, official 2.0 for india isn't out. Flashed it with the one available for hungary/poland.
Real football 2010 is not working. Will dwnld asphalt5 tonite; other gameloft titles r too big to test. Will try them only after i get positive vibes from others.
And video player..,more glitches. There is screeching sound now n then, esp when u touch any key(on screen). Strange, video playback had been the real ace for waves. But samsung has made a mess of it. No color tone adjustment, no brightness adjstmnt (unless u toy with gen settings), no mosaic search, screeching sounds, can't hide a video frm player menu :(
Hope, next beta/official vsn, addresses these issues.
AnonD-33633, 05 Jan 2012KP6 or KL6?
Link for KP6 if any?
oh thats kl6 actually my bad hohoho :D
sir abijheet...the only hd game I've tried is the free one the turbofly HD...works great so far...
it crashed to the menu the first time I launched it....but the on the second try...it worked quite well ^^
cannot comment on the email yet....I tried wifi on several mcdonald's hot spot...odd that I can connect to some mcdo sites and sometimes I can't and the time that I was able to connect I tried out the voice command
quite funky that it sometimes it recognizes my commands perfectly...and sometimes it goofs off hohoho
and I recently found out that like "siri" of the iphone 4s, you can only use voice command when connected to the internet :/
