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?
I found unoffical informaion about bada 1.2
Please check below.

Well.......it seems like everyone is awaiting the arrival of the Bada OS 1.2
Bada 1.2 is a huge improvement on system stability and usability as well as integrated some new function.
Can't imagine how the Bada 1.5 /1.6 /2.0 will be :)
Got this phone a month back, this is in addition to the nokia E72 which I already have. Let me tell you something-the wave kicks nokia ass around the park and then some. this phone is fast, efficient and everything the e72 is not. messaging is super easy, so is surfing or checking emails. battery life is amazing considering its a samsung phone and thats not it, the video capture is excellante! What else do you want from your phone. I'm donating my e72 btw to whoever will use it for teaching your dog to fetch.

Is there any way to put paid apps in this phone from samsung app store for free?
I just updating to bada 1.2 from LISXXJEE. The phone browsers is a lot more fluid and the swype text input is so fast and easy to use. Everything works fine, haven't tried the camera yet but it was easy to do. I flashed the phone via multiloader. There is a good explanation of how to do it from Sam on Page 7 - 8 on this forum. Download the new firmware and multoloader package from samsungfirmware.com. good luck.
If you are having battery problems type in *#8740# and change to AP ART and your battery will improved 10 fold.

Anonymous, 08 Oct 2010Nik , i think ur comment is not correct , because N8 is much better than s8500, so santh don't... more@ Anonymous, Learn to read correctly before commenting. I'm talking about the x6 & not the N8.
BTW, nobody here is even comparing the N8 & Wave bcz they're not in the same price range. N8 official price in India will be 26259(INR) while Wave is 17500(INR).
If you're so fond of the N8, just wait for the Milestone 2 which will come at 29k(INR), it'll simply blow the N8 out of the water.
