Highly dejected!!

With the kind of phones Samsung has in its kitty, this one is a real disappointment. I made a mistake to buy this phone and am repenting now. No OS support. Its really handicapped. What is the use of 1 GHz processer when you cannot use it. I dont see it any better than a Corby. The hardware does not in anyway tends to be useful with the kind of software this phone comes with.

Bada is useless. The interface is childlike, you cant even resize the fonts. Lots of small glitches. Samsung, scrap b...

Don't buy any bada os smartphone...

the biggest problem with this mobile is, its OS. even bada 2.0 is worst than bada 1.2. it has bad camera quality than 1.2. you can't get popular apps on it like facebook, whatsapp, viber, skype, and other. it will ruin your smart phone experience.

Even the last hope for bada user, upgrading to tizen, got shattered. Samsung is neither going to further support bada os nor they will merge it with tizen. Most probably bada 2.0 is last update of bada. i am strongly recommending you to don't buy ...
