RAJIV, 31 Jul 2010Guys......my phone is not getting detected on the top left side of the kies screen.....however... moreHi Rajiv:
I've owned Wave for >1 month now. But everytime I connect to Kies, it seems to be a hit-or-miss event. If it doesn't connect, I simply try half an hour later.I won't do anything to fix the situation,but it will miraculously connect. Sometimes I have to connect a few times to get a successful connection. I'm on JG2. Hope that helps.
need for speed: shift available on wave for free size-98 mb. awesome graphics almost like ps2
Anonymous, 01 Aug 2010why would i lie ?, the camera is crap and so is the battery, here's mine if you don't want to ... moreCamera is superb with an amazingly bright flash, I work in graphics, so I'm handling images all the time, so I'm not just making some bullxxxx comment. Battery life is is great, my phone will easily go two days with heavy usage, just remember to switch off wifi when not in use.
can any1 tell me, where should i register KIES,
India or any other, is there any advantage...??
Galaxy i9000s, getting more popular than wave, must be the advertising..
If you have any problem with battery usage. Plz update firmware. With newest firmware XXJG5 your S8500 will fixed problem battery and faster UI.
New waver, 01 Aug 2010Has any1 used the call recording function in it ? I need it really URGENTLYYYYYYYYY but cant s... moreduring any call tap on the pull-up menu and there u get your "Record voice" option......
URGENT: Is there a Edit before Call function? I can't find it. Help....
Mine is Made in China. I thought Samsung Waves are made in Korea. And the size of the camera sensor, it's too small for a 5 mp camera (comparing it with SE C901). It's more like the size of a 3.2 mp camera sensor.
anyone from India
who bought wave recently
what is the manufacturing /importing date?
manufactured in Korea/china?
as mine is March 2010
i have a doubt
The camera is far from being the best. :-) Too aggressive noise reduction. My Sony Ericsson C901 beats it hands down. My FW version is SDXF3. Is this the latest?
Rakesh, 01 Aug 2010Hey New Waver? Did u try using 16 GB card in this mobile?? Also everywhere I am reading ... moreI too have heard alot of people talking about the 8gb version as well. I have not come across it personally though. You'd be better off asking around in stores about that mate. :)
[deleted post]i also own a wave
same battery problem
only one and a half days
with only minimal talktime
should i changeteh phone or buy someother phone
Hello and good day. im seeing a lot of negative comments here regarding Samsung wave is not what it is in actual, eg. low battery, slow, no multitasking.. etc
First of ive bought my wave week ago and my first impression was "WOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooowW" and days later i felt disappointed because of the problems mentioned above.
But it was my fault for not reading samsung wave's manual. when i started reading the manual i finally understood how to access such functions on blog reviews. there are some cool functions that are not mentioned on reviews like print screen and TV out. The more i read the more im falling in love with my wave again.
So to those who have negative comments or having problems with your wave i suggest read the manual first and try it hands on. Dont make comments here if your just borrowing your friends wave or just heard rumors like this and that.
Grasp the full capabilities of your samsung wave before selling it out due to disappointed feeling towards the phone.
if you decide to throw away your samsung wave, throw it at my direction so i can catch it ^^,. i could use another wave... its AWESOME
max, 01 Aug 2010i guess that one isnt out on youtube yet! but i found some other ones! http://www.youtub... moreWell yeah, they are there on youtube, and not very good to be honest. I as a user fail all of the listed advertisements because they dont depict even 10% of what this device is !! ;)
Anonymous, 01 Aug 2010Think twice before buying this phone, Don't believe the reviews and hype, just try it in real ... moreOh and there is also the fact that Gsmarena crowned it as their "Battery Champion". Try and get yours replaced first. Sell it if you are still not happy with it.
Just an advice mate. Your money, your call it is.
Rakesh, 01 Aug 2010Hey New Waver? Did u try using 16 GB card in this mobile?? Also everywhere I am reading ... moreYes. That is why I replied to your question. :) Have a 16 gb card and its about 80% full I reckon. Works as if I have nothing loaded on this beauty.
Anonymous, 01 Aug 2010Think twice before buying this phone, Don't believe the reviews and hype, just try it in real ... moreThe price is cheap because they want to push the sales of their first bada os device. :) The battery ?? Just a few comments below yours I see a guy praising the battery. Tsk. Why dont you try and condition your battery mate. :)
The camera looks really good for stills (indoors,outdoors,lowlight), as far as low-light video is concerned, I have not really had the chance to record something in low-light (Or even in day time for that matter) But I am gonna be out all day at some amusement park tomorrow with my mates so will definitely give it a shot and see for myself. :)
Watch out for low-light video samples. (If none of em already aren't on youtube).
