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 ... Read review

A good phone, but boring Review with images

AdvantagesFantastic build quality, screen is awesome, processor fast as lightning, loads of RAM

DisadvantagesUses 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-like aesthetic that they love to maintain from model after model of mobile phone. The only phones that I know of that does not have this Samsung syndrome are ..." Read review

The Samsung Wave is the first ever Bada phone, does it impress?

AdvantagesSuper AMOLED Screen, Great Build Quality, Sleek Design, Fast CPU, Great Fresh OS

DisadvantagesSmall 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 expectations, it looks stunning. It's made mostly of brushed aluminium which looks and feels amazing. Even the plastic looks good. Dominating the front of ..." Read review

Good bargain phone

AdvantagesAMOLED display and ability to record HD video

DisadvantagesLess 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 including AMOLED screen, nice processor and ability to record in HD. I didn't really use my previous phone for anything other than calls/texts/pictures, so wasn't ..." Read review

Great alternative to the iphone though it has its issues..

AdvantagesFeatures rival iphone, HD display and video camera are awesome, Sleek metallic casing

DisadvantagesStill photos are often blurry, Many Iphone/Android apps not available, Software update issue

"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 BADA OS. However, to my knowledge this is not available but apps which require it have been on the app store for some time. I particularly wanted to download ..." Read review
