Decent Hardware, Worst Software

This phone have got a decent hardware specs with a 1.4 GHz Scorpion Processor, a big 4.0" SUPER AMOLED Display which is the biggest plus of this phone. But all in all, this phone fails in a large way and thats because of the OS it has got. Bada is the most unstable OS I have ever seen. It is horribl… (View complete review)

@Smruti ...No GPU

Wave 3 has a Qualcomm Scorpion SOC...Clocked at 1.4 GHZ and it features a ADRENO 205 GPU . so i would like to correct info in one of the reviews made earlier by a buyer..
Bada has limited Apps but samsung will merge Bada OS with Tizen and then the its would be backed by Intel and then one can expect some good apps..
I have a Wave II and its a really good phone and having used bada 2.0 , i must admit it has very much improved from the previous iterations

A Bada Flagship

Android is now the king of all mobile operating systems. iOS is not too far behind. Windows phone is gearing up for an attack, bolstered by the new player in its arena. Symbian is dwindling away after a glorious decade or so. Meego is beautiful and yet dead. Did anyone ever notice Bada in the midst of all this??

And yet, 4 inch of SuperAMOLED, fairly slim profile and generous use of metal, all at a nominal price makes Samsung wave III S8600 a tempting package indeed.

1. Gorgeous 4” SuperAMOLED screen. SuperAMOLED along with Nokia’s CBD are the best mobile displays in the

Don't go for this phone...

Hardware-wise, it might be good, but mind you, the OS is really going to frustrate you. I'd bought the first Wave, the S8500, a couple of years back, believing there'd be developers willing to develop for the platform. However, that wasn't to be the case and, after 7-8 months of use, I sold the phone and got myself a Galaxy S. Keep this in mind if you're deciding on buying the phone.

Wave III - A media Forte

Wane III is an excellent mobile for music and video lovers. It plays out of the box DivX and all HD videos up to 720p. Including MKV and all other formats.

It has a great 5 MP camera which captures excellent videos.

The limitations we have is the apps, we dont have exhaustive applications like in Android market. We have certain essentials apps like Facebook, Twitter and some games though.

If you are not an app freak and would love to have a great Music and Video mobile, with a good cam, go for it. You get an option of call ing too, free :)

don't go for BADA

The only and possibly the biggest demerit about this wonderful phone is BADA OS.
If you want a good, robust smartphone with great features in this price range then by all means this phone is not a disappointment, but if you like downloading Apps then dont waste your money.
There are good android phones now in this range. Although having said that, this is a great phone for a first time smartphone user or as a gift to an old non-app savvy relative/friend. :)

Morning to evening with Samsung Wave 3 S8600

Delivered in 2 days by the Flipkart logistics, this phone offers you a number of advantages over other contemporaries:

a) awesomely big 4 inch screen (believe me its huge!!)
b) The superb super AMOLED screen which is really clear and bright with a 1.4GHz processor!!
c) Excellent picture quality with a 5MP single LED camera!
d) Extremely light weight making it easy to carry!
e) last but not the least the stunning price (only 16k)!

Although some folks do resent its Bada OS but with people who are not-so app-savvy, Bada is decent with v2.0 being alot better than the prev

samsung wave III is best to buy

I love the design of this phone. But the OS is Bada. I'm not saying that Bada OS isn't good, in fact my phone has the same OS, and that is why I'm looking for an android phone just to try a different one .OS is decent, processor is fast. Camera is good. Video format support is excellent, plays almost any video format. MP3 quality is excellent. Supports WI-FI. No thinking back on this.
