Been using this mobile phone for about 2 weeks now. Bought this after using an N73 for more than 3 years. Overwhelmed by the capabilities of this phone. Really fast and easy - exactly what i was looking for!
The features are the best I could get for Rs. 17.5K in Delhi.
If Apps being scant is not a drawback for you, and you can afford this much, I recommend the Wave II.

Wave 2 has a very dispointing web browser
Now tell me what the mean of big and clear screen with stupid web browser?
The answer is nothing
I bought wave 2 last week and then sell it after 2 days.
Everybody should think about that
I advice everybody dont think about the price add more money and buy iphone 4.

I am in love with this phone now and only things that’s holding me back to buy this phone is the threaded view. Is this available in this phone? Per my knowledge threaded view means, when I am messaging/chatting with an individual all conversation will get captured in one single message and not filling up my inbox with number of messages from same person. Please confirm if this phone has this feature
Anu, 23 Jan 2011Hi

There are other options like Nokia C7 & N8, Sony Erricsson XPERIA, HTC HD 2 etc.
But this Samsung Wave II S8530 is way ahead of all those other options, decisively.

ohk ppl i need help!!! over all this months i had been downloading samsung s8500 apps but i never installed as i hadnt bought samsung wave. Now i have bought samsung waveII s8530 and all those apps arent getting installed! it says this device not supported for the apps!! what to do??
Like i have said before, i am super happy with this phone. Really awesome!! BUT, i am having a major problem. My first S8530,after a few days of having it, started giving camera problems. At random times when you access the camera it would come up with "camera failed", and exit after a few sec's. Had the phone exchanged for new one and NOW the same problem!!! Except now when displaying "Camera failed" software hangs and need to take battery out!! Anyone know of this happening before? And if its just a software issue(camera has taken pictures before):( What a bummer...
For those who dont have access to both phones for comparison, u can check this to decide for themselves...
I have been reading how waveII is restricted to 55db and all that but honestly does it matter?
volume 10 itself is pretty decent and full 14 is veryy loud! thats all i want to say, simple!
Hey people :) i bought my samsung waveII yesterday for 16990, ts metallic black and i love the screen n music a lot! touch is great!
I wanted to know certain things however from those who already own and are using it
1. I didnt like dolphin browser v2.2 here in waveII and for some dumb reason opera mini isnt installing!! it gets stuck on installing n then goes back to ask always section
2. how to movw msgs from sim to phone? i want the old msgs from my previous phone on to my waveII
3. is it worth downloading route 66 maps? are they detailed n accurate for mumbai?
Now for certain things i experienced-
t9 trace is very good but as i write in hindi too it gets lil annoying but thats ok
ppl the black background in the samsung waveII pic shown top left may look grey but in reality the theme is black and it definitely is black! its black enough alrite!
