@ HARI & @ ABHI
I bought the Wave on 6th sept..i m really satisfied with it...everyone is complaining bout the battery drain..i m here to give the battery usage of mine..
I fully drained the battery in 10 hours..then I did my first battery recharging(switched off the phone and charged it for 6 hours flat).
switched it on again ..changed the battery mode to AP UART..initially it reduced from 100% to 90% with the connectivity set to automatic..thn i switched from Automatic connectivity to Gsm 900/1800 mode..default screen brightness to 6.
it took me 36 hours to fully drain the battery only with 2G network and no gprs.
experiencing all the Apps - 20 mins
total call time - 1hr 45 mins
total gaming(Asphalt5 + nfs shift) - 1 hour
snaps taken with led - 10
full volume music on speaker - 10 mins
music on headphone - 25 mins
total sms received - 40
total sms sent - 30
I dont know if 36 hrs is a good or bad return for this much usage ..though i didnt use 3G ,Wi-Fi or Gprs...
so, wave users plz suggest if the battery is good or bad ?..should i replace with a new one?
man your review is go good and real
but i dont have that battery prob that every one is saying here
thank god my battery lasts for 2.5 days
like urs i alao have many moments likethat to be proud of
i know my review below is jumbled up and unsorted . but thats me . i am not a writer .. was just writing what was coming to my mind... and thats true picture of my wave...
Pls Read thru below prob which I have been experiencing with my mp3 ringtones. mp3 ringtones already available in mobile doesnt have any issue. Is this not common prob. Have u all tried?? Read below and let me know if you see this prob and any remedy?
I got new samsung wave 3 days back. I have been experiencing a weird behaviour with mp3 ringtones. when I have set mp3 clip as ringtones and if my phone is idle for say 30 min and if I get a call after 30 mins of idle time the ringtone sound is weird and it sounds like playing a ultraslow audio clip.
When I try again calling my number immediately ringtone sounds perfectly without any disturbance.
I tried all sound options available like with/without vibration, both melody & vibration. Nothing worked for me and everytime if I get a call after some idle time ringtone sounds very horrible.
Have anyone experienced any such behaviour ?? Pls help me with any suggestions also
my review of wave with 2.5 months of experience..
as a matter of fact .. yes.photos from wave's default camera setting are rated 8/10..
but believe me, just try changing the settings acc. to diff. environment. spl. the iso setting, turn the auto contrast off
and u'll be amazed that the results would be 10/10. i.e the best 5mp camera output in the market...
iso setting is the greatest asset of this phone , believe me...
those whop are saying the quality is not best, try changing the iso setting and first read out how we change it. just google it. what sett in what env.
this setting makes its pics better than all others like the iphone 4 etc..(although not sure about the new HDR feature with ios4.1, as not tried it...)
and thats true guys. i was a nokia lover sometime...
but i had to leave due to . poor camera qualities, poor os, poor ui(although good 3rd party support)..
sony makes the better cameras than the nokias..
and samsung makes them even better..
as we can see in all reviews . pixon12mp outsmarted satio. in imaging
i dont have to comment on the video recording...lol no need to . world knows that..
no camera on phone can shoot 720p at 30fps... except this
when i took this wave, i knew its gonna be of best quality in camera.
but i thought never in sound..
in sound, music quality i alwayus preffered n series or 5800xp or sony walkman phones, never sammys..
but i am really sorry i have to admit it. wave blows me off with its 5.1 channel sound..lol inever thought of it like that
i always make uop my mind to change the phone coz of low apps (bada). i am fond of android..
but it turns out that whenever i hear to music on this ,or just shoot videos, i dont know why , i cant move on.. to replace it..
god i have been thinking from over 1 month to replace it only due to bada's simplicity( as i want complex android)
but i never arrive to the result of selling it..
i think untill i arrive to that , the bada would have been outsmarted android and , lol there would be no need to change...
i not only wish this to happen. but my god, it is happening.......
in my class of 180 students in college, my phone is never with me, its just revolving from here to there, every1 is fond of it..
and for ur kind info, my class mates own satio, iphone3gs, n900, milestone like phones... but greet hats off to this giant.......
screen... my god i m in love with it.. its my darling..
but this phone is really bad also , u know why. i have not studied once in these 2.5 months.. i'll fail in exams lol...
i cant keep it away.
but yes , to me also there is a lil prob in battery, low backup.. i dont know why , tried everything.
the headphones provided my god are the best headphones i have seen so far( i have used creatives, sennheiser)
but just it doesnt has volume, play pause, next previous controls...lol thats bad...
but then also its a breeze to take ur phone out to change songs and all people around would be pounding on u to see this beauty.. feels great.. hahaahahha i see envy in their eyes..
i had one concern initially the keyboard was not very haptic, the speed was not v fast on typing as it was on iphone..
but sammy solved this prob . i have bada 1.0.2 and the keyboard is like iphone.. wow
now this can wave the tongue to the iphone keypad and say , see i have become better than u. u started it, i ended it...lol
whenever i play hd vids on my phone , my frnds reactions are reallly nice, like wow wtf what in th ehell is this screen made of???? lol
and i proudly say its a superled..
the screen also has the best aspect ratio i.e 16:9. standard
i dont like nokia touchscreens which are very long lol... overstretched
nor i like that of iphone , its like the crt monitir , not widescreen , like the 4:3 ratio outdated...
as most movies are 16:9 ratio now...
the sunlight legibility is wow.. i can send smses at high speed at brightness 3..
even 5 not at all required...
i was missing an im , coz palringo was useless.
but now i got it wow , replaced my palringo with utalk and its perfect . who the hell wants the social hub. i have it here lol
bada is baby.. and believe me its really nice to see the baby grow in front of your eyes, it'll be more dedicated to u..
than u just adopt a adult child.lol
day by day waiting for new apps , themes, widgets..
every hour searching the sites for any new thing.. wow its fun......
to be honest i didnt liked the look of wave when i saw here on net...
yak.....v bad ugly
but when i saw it in real.. i told to myself what the hell is this , this much diff. in reality and on pages???
its so beautiful ebony gray
when now i see on net its photo, it again looks to me like its not the phone i have..initially i have used sony, nokias both. my music listening habbit was around 5,6 hours in a month..
and now its 2,3 hours a day . i know u wont believe it.. i dont care... also..lol
the single led flash.. how the hell is it stronger than my 5800 xp dual leds, i dont get it.. want an answer from sammys...?
multitouch wow breeze to use..
the wonderfull moment:
"my frnd got xperia x10, he said its wonderful and i showed him my wave , he said its ok, not bad...
he said that i wanted multitouch , but i had to spend few more thousands for iphone 3gs...
i told him hey look , this is what u were dreaming of?? on my wave:
he said wtf??? .
then i answered him, dont worry your xperia x10 is also fine so so.. nail on the head lol"
hahahhaha it was fun.........
thats all guys hope u see that. what wave is..
u wanna experience it then buy it, if not.. hahah thats your loss. and it would be good for me coz i want that this best phone should be only with me..
whats the use if every1 around me ows it??
then how would i be proudly boasting that my phone is superior to yours...lol
i am a proud owner os the wave its awesome the brightest display i have ever seen!!!!!!!

Sourav, 09 Sep 2010It's the codec error. ie most mkvs r heavily compressed!!! wave's .mkv codec is supplied by di... moreThanks for the info. Looks like I only have to download XviD codec AVI's to play smoothly, otherwise as you said I've to convert, but which I never liked to do.
I am from Uttarpara, not far away from Kolkata.
hari, 09 Sep 2010Hey you . I am always a nokia fan . But till date if you ask me which is the best phone i will... moremr hari just mind u r words what did i say I have compared u r n 97 with n82 ok.and u should accept n82 is superior in image quality than u r n97 mini.And I have used n82,I should say wave got better image in day time that is, if wave is given good lighting conditions because wave got big sensor than n82 or n97 ok.u should always accept the reality ok.So what is the great of u that, I don't understand, that u mentioned u r self being a nokia fan, and using wave, so what,r u expecting everybody and I should praise u for that.Now I say samsung waves image quality is great than compared to that of n 97mini and n97 big.
While playing videos the loud speaker is excellent . . . but while playing music played is the loud speaker is lower than while playing videos . . . anyone know whats the reason for this ?
is there any app for multi-messaging like ebuddy or nimbuzz because my palringo IM isn't working
hari, 09 Sep 2010Thanks buddy...hey hari where can i find class of memory card coz which memory card r come with my wave is not have mentioned anywhere that what is the class
pate-a, 09 Sep 2010helo , hari how is the camera in wave, is it really bad? which camera is better samsung wave o... moresorry...I haven't tested nokia x6 camera..But samsung wave's camera is good but not the best 5mp camera in the market....But if you want to use ur phone as a camera phone then dont include this in ur choice..If your gonna take occasional pictures for personal memories this would be more than sufficient..But the video recording is amazing...Only the still pictures doesn't look sharp and colours are dull...otherwise it is good...But it is an ultimate smart phone...I would suggest this phone for anyone...
hi guys do u ever think that there should be a phone in which we can change os just like pc. guys make voice thatswhy we will see that type of phone. it feel very good when i think that there should be a phone in which u can enjoy all os like android bada winmo maemo symbian........
[deleted post]u r right hari i m using wave and my friend have n97 mini.but the i seen the difference only when pict of both phone r transferd in laptop. otherwise u feel stuning image in wave coz it having superamoled display. and for fufu wave is very good phone but not best in all aspect. The only thing u can sey best ever is super amoled display.
camera iz awesome, as long as u gonna see the pics on 3.3 inches of marvel. but when u transfer it to pc, then there is a diff story. i cant say that camera is really bad, cause all of my pics ver in low light condition, may be better light gives bettr results on pc.
bt everythng looks great on waves screen..
