Do Samsung provide free upgradation of BADA OS if they improve it in near future.
the route66 navigation software made me download a 250mb file for india route maps but then to actually use navigation, it is askin me to make a payment of about 70 euros/annum... i was hoping that such applications would be part of the package... not a paid service :(..
anybody has an alternative to this?
besides that, wud someone know how to setup samsung wave as a webcam?
Thanks in advance!
how can i use the 2ndary camera?
when i need it as a mirror?
Canadian, 01 Sep 2010I think I just went to the Social Accounts app and selected Samsung Account (this only applies... moreHey friend, thanx a lot for dat.
I hav dleted 1 accnt, lets c how much my bttry lasts now.
- Very responsive screen, great UI
- Best screen ever
- 1GHz CPU - this monster tackles apps laughingly
- Two color variants: full black model / gray bars model
- No dedicated music keys, has a dedi camera key
- The OS is a pleasure to work with, intelligent touch features everywhere
- Audio quality is substandard, even with high-end headphones. Bad Frequency response, no custom EQ, horrible presets, horrible dolby effect, and the worst-in-class audio effects like live and external. Nokia N91 is remains light years ahead, and the wave is a joke compared to it in terms of audio quality.
- Games stutter inspite of great hardware (Asaphalt 5)

***Recently I deleted my Samsung account from my Social Accounts.***
I have been logging my battery levels ever since. It seems that deleting the Samsung account made a big difference. Here is my log since yesterday at 5pm.
charged to full
[5-10min of calls (some on speaker)]
[used WiFi to download a game 'Empire Defense' and
update another game 'Pipes'. Played Empire Defense for a few minutes]
[played a game for 2 minutes]
[Used WiFi + Allshare to download a 350MB video]
[watched video(40min) + 20min music all over headphones]
2:22pm=75% -> don't ask me I never connected phone to anything
[15min phone call]
[played tower defense for approx. 10-15min]
[WiFi, checked apps, played pipes for 4-5min]
1:37am (roughly time I am posting this)=66%

No dude I do not run resource heavy apps, but still battery lasts for maximum 2 days. I got to replace the battery, it should not be sooo weak.

It generally happens when i am in CAMERA mode and trying to change the FOCUS modes.

Hello - Please repost your answer, as my experience says that such moderated ... moreok, here you go...
Well, you can use R66 for a month. After it expired, you will not be able to route any trip but still show your current position. Therefore, you have to buy advance navigation package from R66, which is quite expensive in order to use turn by turn navigation. You can not just reset your phone because the licence key is synced with your phone and R66 server with phone's IMEI. As soon as R66 app starts, it asks you whether you want to sync licence keys, yes then it activated , no then, can't use navigation.
You can check google maps for mobile comparison here. m(dot)google(dot)com(slash)maps Android has the most features because it's google. iPhone one is rather limited one and Wave has the worst one because it's a browser version. Java version also exists but not too good either. I used to have windows mobile version and it's working well without turn by turn navigation.
iPhone has many navigation softwares such as TomTom mobile and other navigation softwares (plenty). They can be used without data connection like R66 but they are also expensive like R66.

try contacting one of the samsung certified dealer.
my wave is through union group.
bleedme, 02 Sep 2010hey guys, i did not buy this phone yet but i have planned to and i usually check this opinions... moreIt is the best value for money you can ever get, superb.
for the battery issue, not everyone is suffering from it! and i think they are not alot of people, and in many cases it is not a phone defect, but rather a user defect (running apps and widgets that drains the battery).
i wanted to get a nokia e55 (not for middle east) or e52 earlier (about 10 months ago) go check in the forum how many problems were reported then (that is why i did not buy either then)
i waited for e72, but when i held it in my hand at the store, i was not impressed, and all the units i saw here in cairo were made by nokia
then i followed the wave here, and it is what i got. I'm totally satisfied with it
it is far more stable than nokia,
excellant build quality
has all the features i ever wanted
on top of all that, it comes at an afordable price!
i suggest that you read many hands on reviews by wave users here,
you won't regret getting a wave.
