Wonder whats the retention rate amongst bada users! Survey says more than 85-90% iphone users would like to update to a newer idevice in future. In sharp contrast, maybe some 90-95% wave 1/2 users will vouch---"Bada!!! No, not again !!!"
i am using samsung 2 legendary phones wave1 & wave2
wave 2 upgraded os bada2.0 its awesome superb graphics quality superb speed take wave2 to beyond smartphone experience go for it gays its roks
bada os sucks big time! go for android! they aint updating to bada 2.0.1 till next year! samsung has betrayed us wave users, dont fall into samsung's trap!
Rojit Naorem, 22 Nov 2011does wave 3 supports pdf filesyes...even wave 2 supports pdf files...coz of inbuilt picsel file viewer
bada is not that much bad os in my experience it is one of the best in market. It is a powerfull os which can render high graphics and no security flaws like android in my vision bada4 or higher will beat other os's in future if samsung gives some importance to bada. The main drawback of bada is lack of good applications like third party browsers,players,downloaders. Bada 2.0 should have some better applications than 1.0
Jazzy, 07 Nov 2011Please tell me * How to install android in my wave ii?(full process) * which android versio... moredon't waste your time buddy...go for any andriod phone in samsung...it is not worth for the price
buy wave3 from ebay
i had used wave2 for 4-5 months and it was stolen.
its the best and better than android phone at same price
Wave S8500 is a fantaastic phone. Two limitations I see are the screen size for those of us that like to read with our phone, and the apps market for bada which is not loaded like andriod. but for these the phone is one of the best phones that have ever hit the market. the touch screen is wonderful, camera even at 5mega pixel is the best eva. I love it. I love andriod because of apps and picture display. bada should give us more apps for S8500 I will stick to it. hve not used S8600
why is wave 2 bada os not upgradable?at least one would have asses to bada os version 2.0 that the wave3 has.In my own opinion,I dont see much differences between wave 2 and wave3.It's not worth buying for those that have the wave 2.
it is a big let down both in terms of new features and design. i would hope these will be of next level compared to previous wave series. but no breakthrough in wave series and bada.
Anonymous, 13 Nov 2011btw Bada and MeeGo which OS is better. Samsung Wave 3 or Nokia N9 which is better. both sucks...go for android or ios....even microsoft os is better than these two dead oses..
jussssttt brilliant phone..... this is awesome i'm going to take it
sam, 12 Nov 2011Friends, I sold my S8500 after using for one year. The one with the best display ever. I purch... moreI had the S8500 then I regret selling it and got htc mozart and then the bb9900. I then bought back the S8500. It really is one of the best phones ever in my opinion. The Size, Design, Battery and ease of use. I do not need such a big screen, the size is perfect for me and the battery standby is great on this phone.
What the heck is Samsung doing? They keep on delaying Bada 2.0 and now the Wave 2 is delayed too. Bada is just part time hobby for them as it seems they are just concentrating on Android and the Galaxy's. Not sure if the Wave 2 is even worth buying as the only real advantage of the Wave 1 is screen size. Bada 2.0 is looking more like Android and what I like about Bada is that, its a nice simple OS thats fast and smooth. Samsung please make Bada 2.0 more simple and less Android looking, if not I might aswell go for the real deal Galaxy S2.
btw Bada and MeeGo which OS is better.
Samsung Wave 3 or Nokia N9 which is better.
