WTF! what kind of Samsung Store is that they dont kn... moreThanks to everyone for the replies so far. Anyways, I know it sucks that Samsung staff here in the Philippines have completely no idea what they're talking about. I also understand hayato's point from his post earlier. I really hope it's not a matter of "features discrimination," but there really could be some truth to this.
Check the Samsung Wave specs on the Philippines website here: http://ph.samsungmobile.com/mobile-phones/s8500-specification
Compare it with the Samsung Wave specs on the Singapore website: http://www.samsungmobile.com.sg/mobile-phones/wave-specification
Also compare it to the Samsung Wave specs on the UK website: http://www.samsungmobile.co.uk/mobile-phones/samsung-wave-specification
Scroll down the "Memory" and you will see exactly what I mean. User memory for Philippines' Wave is only 397MB as opposed to Singapore and UK's Wave's having 2GB.
And of course, MicroSD External Memory limit for the Philippines' Wave is only 8GB, while Singapore and UK is up to 32GB.
I was just very worried about this. It's either that an idiot committed an unforgivable typographical error on the Samsung Philippines website, causing even Samsung Concept Store staff to follow those facts; or there is really indeed "features discrimination" in our country as we know it.
I am really set on buying a Wave here in the Philippines and even helping our GDP, boosting economy and such. But if this is the case, I will take my business elsewhere and get a Wave for the same price in another country, with full features.

David, 17 Oct 2010Where can I find the cheapest Samsung Wave with official Samsung warranty in the Philippines? ... morealso here in mindanao ,price is 18,900 php the cheapest price so far, that i have seen ! Im also planning to buy but im waiting for the price to drop , i have a question how soon will this phone be out of stock ? baka kc sa kahihintay q na bumaba ang presyo , wla na aq makikita na s8500 wave na binibenta ?! kac i heard samsung is out of Super amoled baka hindi na rin cla gagawa ng s8500, so anyone knows when is the right time to buy the phone?
yeah, it's almost impossible that the hardware specs are different across countries.
I would believe GSMARENA over retail sales people anytime.

Almost everything I've read seems to make it more attractive than iOS, Android, Symbian, and even Windows Phone 7. If it's only the lack of apps, I don't really see that as a problem.

WTF! what kind of Samsung Store is that they dont know what they are selling?

hi guys, i've bought n used wave for a week now.
but, i have to ask if there're any chance for the phone to be installed with android or even symbian?
just cant stand this bada os..
in delhi shopkeepers r selling wave at 18K or more.....n can any one tell me is there be a price drop as some people r posting here
David, 17 Oct 2010Also, even if the Samsung Wave models in the Philippines say they only support 8GB external me... moreWhy would they do that? Universally speaking, people prefers smartphone which supports 32gb than 8gb, be it on third world or first world. Companies always put their best foot forward to appeal more to the market. Limiting your product's capabilities just because of your target market's social status defeats the purpose of marketing. Unless the production cost are significantly decreased, i can't see any reason for samsung to execute such move. What you're saying is like "features discrimination" - a term i never heard of. Bear in mind that cellphones are mass produced. So a big number of them must be relatively identical feature-wise. Except for the second batch of wave which will sport an s-lcd display due to samoled shortage.
There must be another reason for your situation. And definitely not because they think third worlds can't afford 8gb sd cards. Don't think of us that way, i'm from the philippines too :)
Kababayan, taga symbianize ka ba? Gusto ko ring bumili ng wave after reading some post from the official wave thread there. Kaya lang baka before or after xmas pa, baka maubusan ng stock. :( sana by that time 17K na lang ang price.
