Got it some 20 days back. Nicest phone at this price. Particularly impressed by its camera,video recording n (especially) video playback. It my first touchscreen phone, so i was easily impressed. (That might not be the case with others tho). And a jump from 2.8" (n95-8gb) to 3.7" also made the diff.
Nice gorgeous looking phone if u r ready to overlook the negatives. Sound is poor; no stereo unless u r using the ear-buds. Plus the location of the speaker is annoying. (gets underneath the left palm while gaming; so sound gets dampened now n then.) Parallely, still getting used to the camera lens being so close to a corner. Time n again,find my finger slipping in front of it. Plus, i find using the shutter keys a bit tougher on a slim phone aft a heavy built n95.
Bada? Can't help but curse it. So few apps. 8 out of every 10 new app released is a "theme". And so much overpriced? Either an app is free, or it drills a hole in your pocket. No modest pricing in the middle. Having used an ipod touch, bada apps left me disgusted. Won't compare it with android as i haven't tried one yet.
Summary--sleek n handsome handset. U will surely admire it. But the drought in bada, makes it fall short of being a smartphone in true sense, at least till bada proliferates more. And yes, its internet browser doesn't download unsupported file formats eg zip,rar.

Is it worth taking this phone ... if someone can review it more benefits ... thanks in advance ...

I'd rather choose better hardware though the software sucks! Hehe, anyway, for me, SAMSUNG WAVE II STILL ROCKS! :D
The battery of my wave2 gets heated while watching videos or playing games. Does the same thing happen with any of the wave 2 users.
There is a firmware upgrade available when i connect to kies. But it requiries 3GB free space to do the upgrade. I have only 2GB external memory card. Will this upgrade solve the heating problem.

I was going for your opinion & the differentiating features for Wave II. I am convinced with our opinion & would buy it today. Thanks to you.
ISSUE/PROBLEM: Unable to connect to KIES(desktop).
Hi all ..I got stuck with an issue with my Wave 8530 and KIES. Im unable to connect it to KIES using data cable.
Im xolainng it in steps:
1. I connect WAVe to PC by datacable
2. Open KIES
3. In Windows 7 it throws an usual popup askin fr YES/NO for somthn like 'Do u want the program to change some setting in your machine?"
4. I do YES.
5. KIES gets hanged...and stays so. In the top-left of KIES 'connecting' shows..but the icon doesnt rotate...& it never becomes 'connected' (obviously as KIES is hanged)
6. If I choose NO..still the same scenario.
7. I tried the same in 2 different PCs (Win 7)
I wanna know from the users...that do they also face the same?
Or probably my datacable is damaged?
Or the worst..the cable port in phone is malfunctionng? (if this is so..then it will come under warranty)
Please reply if anyone having a clue...

Hyderabadee, 29 Apr 2011Hi,
1. Can anybody tell me Is Wave II is upgradable to Bada 2.0 Version after it release?... morethe connectivity to the internet with or without wifi is good.
the only thing is wave II is low on HSDP (0.5 on wave II vs upto 2 allowed in most countries), due to which the connectivity with the network provider is weak as compared to other handsets
[deleted post]I bought it for 16,200, about the music player, i'm a little bit annoyed because when i play a song and i go to menu to play a game, when i go back to the music player, the list came back to normal and not showing the now playing track, that's why i'm tired and sick of scrolling because i have lots of songs!about 600 tracks, is there anyway to put letters on it? Also, may i ask what is your firmware? Mine is KB1 some says we now have KC1.
