George, 28 Jun 2010Hey Brandon...what on earth made u think that the wave is bound to fail..ahh mayb the ranking ... moreHey Brandon...what on earth made u think that the wave is bound to fail..ahh maybe the ranking and ratings ..ohh but isn't the wave on top,yea it is .....and he has the nerve to say that the apple iphones got it all -that apples the future...get your facts straight man..the iphones going down..
About android Ur partially right..but again when android was out in the beginning the ifan boys said all the same stuff as u say about Bada ..but look at android now .its been kicking your iphones ass left and right..Cant say thats what Badas going to be like in 6 months or so
all that the iphone ever had and ever will be that capacitive touchscreen but again almost every other brand has caught up now ..so apples got nothing going for it now except that brand value
if it was any other phone showing up apples antenna and screen problems all u iphone maniacs would have been all over it but when its your dear iphone at wrong -turn a blind eye and ignore and keep insisting it is the best.
Iphone could have been the best phone out in the market if
1 it played flash
2 if it had Bluetooth file transfer
3 if it wasn't so reliant on iTunes and a single device to sync it all the time
4 and its "new" video call feature which should have been through 3g as well instead of just being through WI-FI
5 if apples ready to admit that the whole antennae thing is a real issue and deal with it instead of saying that a software update will clear it up when its clearly a hardware issue
6 if multitasking was really available not "multi-pausing"
7 if it had widgets for easy access
So there it is Brandon u jackass - u clearly are brainless `
bobby, 28 Jun 2010no black yet from samsung distributor maybe later... so if you want to buy now go for gun metalhopefuly sir i can have d wave later.im so exictd i cnt wait
my 1st impression when I got to see the Wave in the samsung center was uhm errrrr & eeeeeks, i love the thought of putting 1ghz on it but the actual design and size was out of proportion and the diamond accent in the back was so CHEEEEZY maybe next time samsung will use the Sailormoon series logos (hehe). I love the tech behind it, sup amoled, 1ghz and everything else.
but but, it's not for show off phone at least. I don't want to say its ugly but as other says what matters most is the beauty inside, sigh!!!
Got mine today....beautiful phone for the money you pay....build quality is very good...outstanding features eg. bluetooth 3.0 24Mbps data transfer between devices...awesome display, very smooth interface and much easier to use....loving it....now waiting for some good apps...
wave is available in Kolkata at The National Radio Store(Chandi Chowk)for 17,200/- inclusive VAT...

[deleted post]Just to add to the prev comment.. What do you say about a PHONE which has reception issues and you have to hold in a certain way to make it work.. only one word.. iPhone.
Try to see some sense if you can :)

Anonymous, 28 Jun 2010Get Nokia 3210... It is a lot faster than Wave...have u used the samsung wave...
[deleted post]Dude I haven't bought Wave yet.. Will buy it after 2 months before N8 release as it might get a bit more cheaper...Will use it until a good Meego device ready to be released..
Then guess what..?? I will exchange it for N8 (given that BADA store is not doing well and S^3 not a total crap); as Nokia will slash N8 price to bring Meego device into market.
Will keep Wave/N8 (whichever I would have decided to) until a good Meego Device is affordable.
This is just a plan :) Need to see how it will go..
Hope both BADA (with App store) and S^3 (without lagging and crashing) does good work so that I will be tempted to get both and keep them for a while.
SE 2010, 28 Jun 2010LooL hey friend, long time no see :)
And yes I don't blame you, because I was never a fan o... moreI just want to share my personal experience with u.. and other brand fans...
Until an year back I too used to live in a closed shell blindly believing that only Nokia & SE can produce descent mobiles and it would be that way forever..
I used several handsets from both companies..
Nokia: 3120, 6600, 7210, N73ME & N85
SE: W810i, W580, W210 & K810
I can say I was not satisfied completely with any of the above handsets.. Of course, no mobile can satisfy anybody completely..!!
I was just hoping that my gadget should deliver on par with the amount I was investing. But that never happened with Nokia or SE.
Something which is very basic was either not performing properly or not there at all !!
One thing that really made me sick of Nokia was N85..yes it has got some 100 high-end specs..but still it kept irritating me by malfunctioning on several basic aspects. Just to name a few...
- Bad built quality.. I mean really bad!! Something of this sort is not expected to be on a high-end device that costs a fortune. Its battery back started wobbling from day2 and front panel developed a crack near D-pad with in 1 month. (PS:- I never dropped it)
- Worst loudspeakers.. I couldn't give that piece of sh*t to my pals becos most of them were shocked at the speaker quality and being such costly mobile nobody expected that bad thing on it. It is (or rather “they” – it has got stereo speakers ,.. a complete waste anyway) feeble and creaks like hell. Any cheap Chinese set is better than N85 in this regard.
- Not the best 5MP shooter. Not even comparable to N73's 3.2MP shooter.
- Idiotic flat keypad.
There were few +ves as well..like AMOLED display, good Video rec, excellent GPS receiver etc...but still the way Nokia has messed up with basics has really irritated me.
There were similar experiences with all other devices I used thus far..but worst was N85. I changed my mind then and got Sammy Star and I have to say..I was taken by surprise as it has gone beyond what I have expected from the price range !!!
Till that day, I never trusted any brand other then Nokia & SE.. but Sammy changed my thinking by proving a simple truth : ""Never under-estimate anything""
Pls don’t blindly follow some brand; and trash the other without really finding it out by urself.
And that’s the end :)
Anonymous, 28 Jun 2010There is... The entwined arrows and the arrow with an A on it...I cant seem to find it, can you tell me where is it?
fadz, 27 Jun 2010yes, i would recommend cells4u coz i bought items there before. i am from san diego, calif. my... moreCan i please tell me more info about ordering from cells4u.com. they got the good prices and they are BBB authorized they work with paypal also so i want to try them but can i please put some more info about them from personal opinion. how is the shipping,is it fast is it home delivery? do they charge any taxes? did u got a working phone with all the accessories inside? Thanks in advance
scoopyscoopy, 28 Jun 2010I ordered mine from http://www.expansys.com/ . very fast shipping.its the phone like it should be with all accessories and manuals in the box?And did u got the European charger and the US charger? Post if u got any pros and cons about the site and the phone =D thanks
[deleted post]let me correct u. First of all iphone got lcd display and not some super duper display as u said and certainly not an AMOLED(Wave got Super Amoled). So if u dont like Samsung at all dont even try to write over Samsung Wave opinions u get it? Oh and iphone???? stealing and using other company's technology(they using processor that Samsung made for them) so if u say Wave is slow and shit u say iPhone is slow and shit.oh and people are waiting in lines in front of iphone stores because iphone are releasing phones once a year.(Samsung customers dont need to wait like fools in lines for some phone who will get old in couple of months)
Imran, 28 Jun 2010I was thinking of buying either Galaxy S or Wave. checked wave many times in a store. played s... moreHi Imran
I read that you chose Wave over Galaxy S. What were your reasons? I have been looking at both in store and can't make up my mind! Guy in Vodafon told me to go for Galaxy as bigger screen and runs android. But I love the style of the wave and the metal build!
