Product description

The Samsung Wave 2 mobile phone is here to start from where the original Samsung Wave left off. The Wave 2 still houses the same 1GHz processor but comes with an improved 3.7 inch super LCD touchscreen and new Bada 1.2 operating system. High speed 3G and Wi-Fi are on board which means you are guaranteed to get some of the fastest mobile internet out there at the moment, which is perfect for social networking. Writing status updates and typing texts is easy too; just use the new method of quick typing T9 trace. This works much in the same way SWYPE does to give you seamless text entry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Product 7 Oct. 2011
This is second touch screen phone (previous LG Viewty useless - was a couple of years ago). I have been using ordinary Sony W890i and found transition very easy.
The internet access appears very quick and setting up access to your email accounts is very quick, I didn't even need the manual. Friends say they can hear me clearly and much better than previous phones.
The only niggles are when texting you can press the send button without finishing text especially, if you use higher and lower case, but this could just be me getting used to the touch screen qwerty key board.
The other thing that is really annoying is the contact list has seperate entry for first and last names no problem until you save or use your existing contacts. So if your last phone didn't it assumes or reformats assumning all your contacts are first name and adds forward slash and / or numbers for no reason. This means contacts are all over the place and not where they were on previous phone, this may be just a Sony vs Samsung contact issue, but annoying as you have to go through and change all the contacts. On the plus side copy and paste is fairly easy and saves time.
In all other aspects this is a good phone. Build quality appears good and solid. Not checked the Samsung Apps store far, but appears limited, but if you are not interested in android apps, go for it.
PS I haven't tested camera or music player, but as I have DSLR and ipod not really bothered, will add comment if I test it out. I will be testing radio this weekend and will amend this then.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Phone, TERRIBLE software 1 Aug. 2012
Ill keep this short as I tend to ramble on with my reviews:

This phone is beautiful:

-The screen is nice and large and VERY clear
-It feels as if its a good quality phone with a brushed metal casing and a scratch proof AMOLED screen (I actually dropped mine onto the floor, not carpeted, and there wasnt a mark on the screen)
-It runs very smoothly, is very responsive and has no problem with any of the apps or software available for it...

And thats where the problem lies...

THERE ARE NO GOOD APPS FOR THIS PHONE!

If you want a phone simply to call and text and maybe browse the net or play a few games then consider this a 5 star phone. If you want skype, yahoo, google chrome, msn, angry birds or literally ANY of the apps that you have ever heard about then look elsewhere.

Samsung designed their own OS for the Wave and Wave II called Bada. The OS is not necessarily bad but it has no support whatsoever. Companies are not going to design versions of their software for an OS that only exists on 2 phones (Actually now 3 phones but ill get to that in a moment).

To add an extra nail into their coffin they then decided not to allow ANY Voip style software on the Bada system. This instantly rules out pretty much every PC based IM software not to mention the most popular ones for iOS or Android (ie Viber, WhatsApp, GroupMe). (For those who dont know, Voip is Voice Over Internet Protocol. Essentially making calls over the net). Im sure they intended to prevent people from using their phones to get free calls and texts a la Viber but they just shot themselves in the foot.

Apparently Bada 2.0 was meant to resolve all these issues and was to be available once the Wave III was released.
