C guys september is coming n from now onwrds we started getting some cool ss of bada 2.0.....?
Come on Bada u can beat Android and iOS..u have very nice and great feautres .Just concentrate on ur appstore and apgrade..
Has some pretty gud features like the camera which is pretty good, the 100 fps video recording, music player with very good equalizer presets, the surround sound, the dolby effect & the headsets...
Coming to the OS (BADA).. as this is a new into the market... not many apps could be provided by the Samsung Apps store... Basic apps like messengers, skype were away from the store... Later on updating the software you will be finding many problems after the update like mis-match of text, Menu disappearing, battery life was pretty good... updates on the software couldn't make much of a difference...
i would not suggest not to go for this phone nymore until the OS is pretty stable and the app store is good enough to provide the customers with some basic apps...
p-noy, 10 Jul 2011guys we've been experiencing almost the same problem camera shutter issue... mine too i think ... moreKumusta?
Do you think the shutter key problem is software related?
Kung hihintayin pa natin ang bada 2.0.1 baka next year pa lalabas yan. :-( (If we're going to wait for bada 2.0.1, it might come out next year.) That's a long wait.
guys we've been experiencing almost the same problem camera shutter issue... mine too i think it was a bug for updating to 1.2, watcha think? i will waite for bada 2.0 before going to service centre, for now i'm also using wamo cam in replacement of camera
Updated again my phone with Kies, must be the 4th update in a year, so Samsung is great by releasing regular updates for the phone.
Is it me or most of the pictures are blurred, even if they look good on the phone screen ???
Time to get a new phone, SE xperia mini or SE Ray or possibly a smaller Galaxy S2 ?
I wonder when will bada 2.0.1 comes out.
james, 09 Jul 2011hellow guys ...I have a problem with my device..it's already a month now and my shutter was de... moreMine too. My phone is just 11-months old. :-(
Is it just a coincidence that shutter key problems started to crop up for the past month or two?
And the alarm is not working. I can't "re-use" previously created alarm. I have to delete it and create a new one every time.
The "All tracks" tab of the music player is gone (since I updated it to bada 1.2).
Warning:To all s8500 owner, don't try to upgrade firmware through Kies. It failed with me and my phone now in the service center and i don't know if it will work again or not. If not, it will be a great loss to me. So, i think i should warn you. Upgrade should be done through service center only. Few days later, i will tell you if it is repaired or not.
OK guys i finally got my samsung wave back :D
if u dont know what happened to me i will tell...i bought my phone on june 18th...i played with it for 3 days and i got tired...i tried update through kies and it didnt work so i updated manually using multioad...1st time it worked..my samsung app store working,facebook ap,asphalt 5 and i was damn happy...i then read BADA 1.2 was available and so i tried to flash it and my phone wouldnt start :( i tried to flash agai and it didnt work..i took it samsung customer care and they said they cant repair it..i took to one of my known shops and they said it would take 2 days.i came home and tried to flash it again and now my phone even wont start >.< its totally bricked i was shocked and pissed.....and didnt know what to do
i went to another known shop and they sai i had 50/50 chances of fixing it....after 6 days at the repai centre they gave me a call and said they fixed it :D
i rushed back and got my phone and it was like new but the app store didnt work so i decided to flash it again and i bricked it again.i took back to the repair centre and said i dont know what happned to it and they fixed it within 1hr and i got it free of charge today...and my app store isnt working again...i decided i wont do anything..it cost 25 EUROS and 20 days of my time......
so i suggest dont flash it...this is my cinderalla story
comparing wave and wave 2 screen clarity is a rubbish matter , super amoled has no comparison with slcd so if you want bigger screen with poor quality and somewhat heavier and thicker then go for wave 2 unless wave is the best of the bada according to me if you are getting it even now in market.
hellow guys ...I have a problem with my device..it's already a month now and my shutter was dead!!..at first I got focusing issue and now the shutter was tottaly dead..so I can't use the original software to take for photos and videos..I'm using the WAMO camera,..Guys do you have any solutions for the shutter problem?..
anyway this device is cool ..and still can compete with other new handsets today..the camera and video recordings is great..I hope samsung would also release a update for the flash player..
kringles, 08 Jul 2011hardware .. did you went to the service center? my phone was replaced because it happened twice...Thanks. I think I'll do that. How long will it take? A day? Or do I have to leave my phone and come back after a few days?
