Samsung Wave

 

Samsung's Bada OS makes an impressive debut on this touchscreen smartphone.

Competitive price, Good build quality

OS lacks polish in some areas

Samsung Wave GT-S8500

 

There is a lot riding on the Samsung Wave. It is the company's flagship handset, designed to show off its new platform Bada. As such this review is a little on the long side, but it is worth digging around and seeing what the Wave has to offer. It is...

Screen is staggeringly good, Bada seems stable, good touch response, great media device, handles HD well

Apps often lack options, lack of big name apps (this might change), some menu and keyboard awkwardness

It is worth remembering that this is a first generation phone on this platform and once it gets the sort of intensive testing that real customers put on it, Samsung will probably better identify and iron out some of the quirks we found. We said at the...

A snappy processor, gorgeous AMOLED screen and great build quality can't make up for the poor widget interface and lack of decent apps

Samsung Wave S8500 review -

 

Excellent social networking, universal calendar, phonebook that syncs with Facebook, Twitter and more, super-AMOLED touch-screen, and an HD video camera that also takes great pictures

Hardly any apps available for download, temperamental maps feature, user interface is a little unintuitive and restricted

Samsung Wave S8500

 

This is one of two recently launched phones from Samsung. The other the Galaxy S was launched in a swathe of who's who at a London nightspot. This unit, the Samsung Wave S8500, offers you the chance to do most things from a Smart Phone.

Finding phone prices is never easy as according to your provider, the state of the moon and even local conditions – at least two of those statements are true – the price will fluctuate wildly so search and search again. For instance should you have a...

Samsung S8500 Wave review

 

The closest competition that the Samsung Wave has is from Nokia's N97 mini, another touchscreen phone with good multimedia features. However, irrespective of a hardware QWERTY keyboard and a more mature OS with app support to match, I would pick the...

Samsung Wave (S8500)

 

Secondly, it is a model for the mass market. What is an average phone user's take on smartphones? Such people look for a phone, not a computer of any sort, where you can or at times even have to install additional software (hello Windows Mobile). In...
