ConsUses Bada, and I'm not doing any Bada-boom jokes

This is definitely a Samsung phone. From the moment you switch it on and hear its little welcome jingle, to the system icons that are strewn all over the interface, you can feel it is a Samsung product. As an experienced user of Samsung products in the past, they all have that same Fisher Price...

ConsSmall range of apps

Samsung released the first ever Bada powered mobile phone, the Wave. First impressions are good. It comes in a small box, which contains, a user manual, two mini CD's with drivers, the charger, data cable and of course the handset itself. You see the Wave for the first time and it exceeds all...

ConsLess Apps Available than on other phones

I was offered the Samsung Wave as part of my upgrade. I originally wanted the HTC desire, but was told that was sold out but could have the Samsung and an extra £5 off my Monthly payment. I quickly did a bit of research online and saw potentially good things going for this smart little phone...

It is annoying that the BADA Operating system doesn't support most of the popular apps found on iphones or android phones though there are a lot of good ones and new ones are added to the app store all the time. One issue I have is that there are some apps which require the latest update of the...

ConsLack of Apps available

Let’s start off with the way the phone feels and performs. The look of the Wave is sleek, stylish and modern making it a great competitor in the Smartphone industry. The buttons and touch screen are easy to use with smooth running of the OS. Battery life in the beginning was very poor so asked...

Question

Can I use facebook chat on this phone, I can see it but seem unable to send and messages
Open question Answer

Answer

It's Possible to access facebook chat on a smart phone, however i've found the application depends on the operating system within. As previously had a samsung smart phone that runs on Bada and facebook chat o works but with a few mishaps, and a few kinks here and there However now i have a Smartphone that works on the Android operating system and facebook chat works perfectly. It also helps to have internet included in your contract.
