    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.

    No Skype support

    Appreciate samsung for making such a good phone at such a low price. Metal body, 4" AMOLED screen, great 5 MP camera, 3G, WiFi, GPS, Decent battery, 720p video recording and what not it has everything. It has everything i want.

    Still i don't buy this phone for one reason. Skype is not available for this phone. No use of that front camera. What a pity !

    BADA sucks!!! instead go for Android phones

    I've been using the Samsung Wave S8500 since Aug 2010, and i tell you, the phone has an excellent hardware. The OS simply sucks...there have been hardly 2-3 updates since i purchased the phone and the latest update (2-3 months back) is causing me a serious head-ache.. once in 5 times after a call, the phone gets stuck and restarts automatically.
    Secondly, there are only limited apps on BADA and i doubt if at all they are going to develop any applications. You will hardly find any useful appl...

    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.

    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...

    BADA - the worst os ever !!

    i have a wave 525 and i am nw thinking of throwing the fone in the garbage just for the reason tat its OS is the worst.There are only
    a few free apps in bada and for the 'ok' apps are being charged by them.It has a gud camera even though it is only 3 MP . The camera clarity is satisfactory.
    Go for either android or iOS instead.

    one hell of a wave

    using this phone that a friend of mine has left with me for a week, -- First of all the only short coming of this phone is that it runs on Bada 2.0 samsung proprietary OS. The Bada app market is not as big as the Andriod app market. Installing the bada on this phone makes it slightly underutilise the capabilities of the scorpion 1.4ghz processor. What i thoroughly like is that the phone has a super amoled display nicely nestled between what me thinks is gorilla glass, the gyroscopic rotation ...
