I have the original wave running bada 1.2 and it has made so many improvements. T9 trace (swype) input really rocks. The browser has improved and the general touch is a lot smoother. The ram management has improved as I can run heavy graphic games together (asphalt & Bruce Lee) and no more "out of ram messages" so far. The Multitasking is improved switching between programs and apps seems pretty seamless. The camera pics seem a little more sharp when viewed on computer. I think Samsung are slowly improving the Bada OS and for an OS so young it shows great promise I just hope Samsung support the awesome hardware in these phones but so far it looks like they are slowly improving the users experience with there first update, may it last for a long time.

to all those who post bull shit against wave.wave is not discontinued.samsung introduced wave 2 only to meet the demand and to enlarge its wave family.
wave is and well be a king in mobile industry and markets.
thank you samsung for inventing a mobile as samsung wave gt-s8500 for all:-)
in europe, experienced mobile user are dying and fighting for samsung wave gt-s8500 due to over requirements and demands of europeans:-)
@ best price
for more than one year no any competitor and company can beat samsung wave gt-s8500 any more.
so please its my personal suggestions and experience, please please dont try to sell your samsung wave gt-s8500 after reading false news.
thanking you all,
[deleted post]Guess you can place orders at a shop in jayanagar.my friend said so.price has increased to 17.5k.
its a false news written here in gsmarena by samsung hatters that samsung has discontinued wave gt-s8500 due to shortage of amoled screens.
for your kind informations i want to tell you all that samsung is the only one and first manufacturing company who discover and invent more in screens for example lcd, led and now in future as transparent screens.
samsung is only the company who manufacture and supply lcd and led screens to rest of the reputated mobile companies like nokia, sony, lg, black berry, motorola, htc etc etc etc.
so please not belive in wrong and false news anymore.
GUYS wave has been stopped due to the shortage of AMOLED screen for that price so from now on only wave2 will be sold
The S8530 will replace Wave 2 Wave 1? Or just complete the product line. Samsung seems to have problems with the production of AMOLED.
I want to ask whether S8500 is a good deal or not. Sure, its the number one phone on the gsmarena site. The hardware is pretty fast and promising. But the main dilemma is the software. Its the new born Bada OS. Is this OS worth it? I mean its new, it has limited apps out there, it has to face the tough competition by the god-like Android OS out there in the wild. Will it be as user friendly as Android OS? Will it have a bright future potential?
