dear wavers m in need of some immediate help,i updated mah wave s8500 To bada 1.2 firmware version ddkh1 through kies,and since d updation d phone restarts again n again by itself and battery gets low in almost an hour and max 2 hours,i thought updates were meant to increase battery life.....am worried....kindly reply wid some advice dat may help....thnx in advance....
people here are such a perfectionist...if you want a perfect phone why don't you study on your own to create your dream phone...?guys we must appreciate what's inside of bada...if you just consider the negatives it will just disappoint you...there's no such thing in this world that is perfect....if you find something's wrong or missing let's tell that to samsung for them to fix and improve..
Johann, 14 Oct 2011I am using this phone for 5 months now. I must say there are some very cool features on the Wa... moreI disagree with u..bada has Gtalk and YM..but there is no skype that offers video call....I also want bada to have it..this handset is a powerfull smartphone...specs are not outdated yet...bada is updated to 2.0 and lots of UI improvements there...apps market is growing but most of them is crap..but there are also good apps...
i love my samsung wave S8500 its just like a team of i-phone and an android phone......thing is less of applications......
I am using this phone for 5 months now. I must say there are some very cool features on the Wave, but for me there's more negatives than positives. I feel like I totally wasted my money going for BADa. No skype, no whatsapp, no Gtalk....and they call this a smartphone?? Hell NO!! DO NOT go for Bada, I'm migrating to Android rather...

I downloaded farm frenzy 2 from the app store using my phone, it was successfully installed then but when i tried to open it, It said it doesnt support s3e.icf! what does it mean? any suggestions? :D
I just love my Wave. I have it since June 2010 and I can't change it for any other one. I missed features like Maps, text reflow, Skype, Whatsapp, Tapatalk... so I bought a Nexus S. But it felt plastic, too big for my pocket, no FM radio and worse music and camera. Then I got a Galaxy S. Again, too plastic, too big, bad GPS, worse music and no camera flash. So I tried Xperia Arc. Same problems. Plastic, huge in pocket, worse camera (yes worse camera despite the 8mpx) awful screen, worse music quality, absurd distribution of buttons, absurd location for the earphones jack on the left, small buttons... and I gave up. I ALWAYS returned to my Wave with a big kiss. So, I don't have any of those apps... but I have a phone that I love to touch, with wonderful colors, amazing sound quality and excelent camera. Who needs those apps if you have to miss your Wave.
