Pipoy, 10 Dec 2011Please give me your best answer, when/where did you use your front camera except for the ever ... morehehehe
first things first;
you say when did we ever use the front camera? errr...whats your point? in bada 2.0 we can now use the camera even without having to call someone via 3g....
and about the useful apps, it has useful apps, actually aside from the one you mentioned about not having a single app about the front camera, most of the basic apps are covered at the samsung appstore
and your other point, No we dont need to view the screen from a weird angle to appreciate,its all about the actual quality of the screen which is undeniably good hence all the top tier phones released nowadays have superamoled....please look at the top android phones such as sgs2 ^_^ its just a natural perk found from superamoled screens...Iphone uses led screen and apple even invested time,funds and effort in order for the 4th gen idevices to be viewable in extreme angles like the superamoled.....please look for the "IPS technology from apple" I mean even though one might get by without this kind of tech and yet apple still did this....why is this?
case in point-its a feature that some might find unnecessary and yet because the superamoled does this without additional technology, a big name company such as apple decided that is also an important feature...and take note they only included this feature in their most expensive devices.....the ipod touch 4th gen doesnt have this IPS even though it has retina display....which only tells us that this little perk of tech that one may argue that isnt that all important, is a privilege available only to their highest end devices(or most expensive rather)....
bada may have been overshadowed by android in the apps department. but it has succeeded in merging the user friendliness of an IOS device, and the "openness" of android
in fact, it also has things that are better than android....for example if you are a developer, you have to pay a one time fee of 25 usd in order to get your app registered on the androidmarket....and for applications for the IOS you have to pay 99 usd a year same goes for windows...
for bada....it is free at the moment!
aside from that, android is the most resource hungry O.S. bar none....compared to bada which is like symbian, needs little resources to be efficient thats why a bada device is comparable in speed to top tier dual core android phones in doing basic tasks on the phone...
and bada is actually very gentle on the battery....coupled by the superamoled (which is also very light in using the battery power)
I mean it has been proven by gsmarena already...with their s8500 battery review and now the s8600 battery test review
Very good phone, very bad OS. Just bought an iPhone 4 and I'm like..in Heaven. Bada sucks so much...few and lousy apps, and now many of them aren't free anymore.
freaking fuming samsung is not delivering on their promise to let us have the upgrade (grrr #####).if i dont get the upgrade before xmas i am done buying any samsung products totally.
Please give me your best answer, when/where did you use your front camera except for the ever highly cost video call? bullshit mirror thing at apps? even a single video calling apps we can't install is this phone... When we're talking about smartphone it's all about O.S. w/ useful aps.. Why do we need to view in a weird angle just to appreciate this superamoled thing.
yes at first I'm really impressed w/ this phone that's why I bought it all I though BADA os will continue inspire us like the others OS do to their customer but they failed, they keep on promising us w/ that long awaited BADA-2 by giving us a quarter period release no exact date.. BADA WISH YOU GO TO HELL..
Rate this phone: Hardware as 9.5, OS your beloved BADA as BIG ZERO.... I'm enjoying my new android CP now take note upgradable to ICS-4 ...
is it dual cam? is it a front cam lense and flash im seeing at the front left top of the unit?
Pipoy, 10 Dec 2011SUPERAMOLED screen is useless w/o a good OS....
superamoled is great for viewing media
which the wave is excellent in doing
you really dont need a good O.S. to have an actual use to superamoled....
Anjali, 08 Dec 2011Thanks buddy! BTW i'm never more than 2 meters away 4m my router at a given time. Nd i use m ... moreoh and i almost forgot to speak about your wifi problem . i guess you have to increase your phones priority by adjusting the priority settings of your router through a PC .laterz
Experia NEO-V is really a good alternative to this phone.. Stop voting high points to this phone wavers, enough is enough, let us show samsung that we're not happy...... BADA OS REALLY SUCKS!!!!!!!
Anjali, 08 Dec 2011Thanks buddy!
BTW i'm never more than 2 meters away 4m my router at a given time. Nd i use m ... moreAny time. i think the camera key not working is purely hardware defect.
secondly,just try to use the phone by removing your memory card , if the phone works faster then its the fault of the memory card ,otherwise not.
I have this phone for about 18 months, and it was great when launched. But now i am fed up. Video recording sound in loud place is terrible, and most pictures are blurry. Most games are not free, and you have to use Kies to install mostly crappy apps. Time to move to Android. Love Samsung but SE Arc S is cheap and seems great...you can get free super games apk everywhere on the net ! Or maybe Galaxy W.
Wave 1 was the best in its time, super phone really.
AnonD-1038, 09 Dec 2011How To Get All nice Game For Free and normally the file for bada is what cuz android is apk th... moredear sir fiction:
to get apps for free in bada, it s very different compared to the likes of android which is .apk, ios which is .ipa and symbian which is .sis
to get apps in bada you must learn how to "wave spoof"
this is a video by sir neohack latest method of "wave spoofing"
basically we dont get any raw file like android ios and symbian
we download apps here:
what we get is a .rar file and part of wavespoofinjg is extracting that file in your computer then using 7zip to archive those extracted file then using a program on the comp called "appslist" to install via kies hehe the youtube video by neohack is very complete in how to wavespoof
good luck "spoofing" ^_^
So. Since many apps are free now.
Can we expect the 2.0-update shortly or is it time to let struggling Bada go and get Android like the rest of the human rase. I mean, IceCreamSandwitch is bound to be good. And here I have waited for a year for something to happen OS-wise with my Wave. pooh.
I´ll give it a couple of weeks then I move forward and wont look back.
I need it badly since my Wave often restarts with Bada 1.2.
Well... we´ll se.

Anonymous, 09 Dec 2011Good day carloud.
How long have you been using your Wave? We've been complaining about that ... moregood day sir
to be honest I've only been using an s8500 phone in about 6 weeks now
Im kinda new in using the wave too hihihi ^_^
it seems nowadays, phones released by samsung with a camera key are rare :/
Murko, 08 Dec 2011Hi carloud!
This is very useful, my wave is faster than before, but now i have to set my wave... moreelo sir hehehe glad that you've also noticed the difference in speed hehehe!
It seems we dont need to use cpuart this time...I mean this mode is like accessing cpuart manually :D
AnonD-27987, 07 Dec 2011I think over time, the camera key gets a bit too sensitive
mine seems to require a really g... moreGood day carloud.
How long have you been using your Wave? We've been complaining about that since time immemorial. LoL. :-)
Anonymous, 08 Dec 2011Overall performance wise, I think wave1 is clearly better than wave3 as per GSMArena reviews..... moreAgree with you. Love S8500's hardware. Excellent audio quality and decent camera. If only S8600's audio quality is as good as S8500's, then I might have considered it.
