The display is awesome. If the screen size isn't a matter then wave 1 is a smarter choice. yes it plays .mkv, divX/Xvid,mp4, HD 720p movies very nicely straight out of the box. you won't need to make any modifications to your videos to be played on wave 1. wave 2 is also a v. nice phone but wave 1 looks just perfect in hands due to it's forms n shape. Final decision is yours. :)
when is this coming to India ?
the only thing I miss on the All powerful Wave 8500 was a bigger screen ... really get fatigued squinting at reading the text on it ...
Samsung bring this to India soon !
i have wave , it has few major design issues. 1: T9 dictionary is useless 2: it does not have back button, everytime we need to press right hand side key and it directly comes out of all application 3: google maps does not show your home position 4: so far samsung should have come out with patches to resolve these issues

Wave2 is good bigger LCD, updated Bada 1.2, and the amazing features is wave2 contains oleophobic surface it just fluid to touch like iphone. but only gap between of two is Wave1 Superamoled darkening colors and brighter, superclear LCD brighter light also but not like superamoled. but for my reason i want wave2 than wave1. it because wave2 it contains oleophobic surface device like iphone, wave2 price here in the phillippines is 26-27k higher than wave1 is only 17k.
I was planning to buy Wave 1 but after reading the reviews for wave 2, i am confused if i should wait for the wave 2 or not. Please tell me which phone is better in terms of display.
Also can wave 1 play .mkv HD/BR rip movies downloaded from sites like DIVXTURKA, moviebie in 720p. Will samsung discontinue Wave 1 once Wave 2 is launched? what would be the price difference between the two...

- Bigger screen
- Brighter screen (super amoled has too much contrast)
- Better OS Bada 1.2
But for me i keep Wave 1 because it is nearly the same and i prefer smaller phone. This one is bigger than Galaxy S...
