I just checked this phone on a shop in amritsar, price 12900, gr8 phone, but i think this dosn't have video calling feature, what actaully i asked the shop keeper, she replies it has 3g but only for data access...... Otherwise beautifyl phone, hardware too good, actaully on that day i was about to buy a phone with 3g, wifi, camera with flash, so i checked 5800, x6, and wave 2, among all, wave have the best hardware, 1ghz processor, gr8 ram, and the price is 1100 less than x6 and just 200 more than 5800, features are more than x6, only one thing laks, video calling..... and only 2gb memory card from company...... So the price is 12900, dont pay more than this.......
i heard some article wave2 stop releasing, in short this phone not released bec. wave1 is very successful, samsung produces again wave1 superamoled start shppng december, wave2 is only prototype unit, samsung campany no plan to released wave s8530.
I know many of u are awaiting the relaunch of the original samsung wave. But u know unfortunately i have to tell u this that according to the samsung call center personnel that they have been told that samsung has discontinued the manufacturing of the original wave due to the limitation in manufacturing AMOLED displays. U may ask me how the hell did i came to know about this. Actually me and my brother were planning to buy the original wave we kept searching almost all the shops that we know in mumbai but unfortunately we got the same feedback from everywhere that they are out of stock and so my brother made a call at the samsung call center just to know the current status of the original wave but the reply that he got from them is extremely disappointing for all of us. Let's hope for the best in the future.
i have my wave S8500 for a month, and it's OS is superb, very fast, no hang-ups.....very nice phone..

thnks gsmarena for the specifications
bt i think there may be some mistake in talktime of battery it reveals that it has 6 hrs talktime wid 2g and 8hrs wid 3g. how it can be?? please clear my doubts.
This is to all samsung wave fans. As it is also mentioned in gsmarena review that it is quality v/s quantity and surprisingly they didn,t mention anywhere
about battery life test.I think gsmarena delibrately avoid to mention this in their review in favour of this phone but from the specifications it is clear that 2G talktime is only 6 hrs. v/s 15 hrs for original wave, means two and half time lower then original wave.This speaks in itself about battery life. As far as lcd v/s amoled is concerned now it is pretty much clear that this super clear lcd is nowhere in comparision to amoled in original wave and samsung is providing amoled only in it,s high end phones. now see why original wave become so famous all over the world and become no. 1 phone in it,s price range. obvisiously due to amoled, good battery life (you can watch almost 7 hrs. of vedios) and great design. Now wave 2 is left only with same design plus .4 inch more lcd screen only. this may be a good phone but not the best as original wave was. So my advice to all samsung wave lovers would be that if you want to buy wave then find original wave if it is available otherwise you may consider others. popularity and price of this phone is sure to come down .
gud phn but now a days 5 mp not works n its price should be less or its better 2 buy a n8 which is of 12 mp n its price is also less dan dis phn
Quite a good phone, but I personally don't like the Bada OS that much - to me, it feels too much cartoon style. Also, this phone should be easily at least 1 cm shorter. This is just too much for a 3.7 inch. I can have 4 inch screen in its dimensions.
hey guys im planning to buy samsung wave,is there no problem about the application or haging or something?
Anonymous, 23 Nov 2010i think ur unit is a faulty one..bcz my wave plays all mp4,divx,wmv,avi etc..Where u biught the phone?
