  • Samsung S8530 Wave II review: Riding the wave

    They shall come in wave upon wave. Or so it seemed in the beginning. Samsung certainly wanted a strong start for their own Bada OS and they had it. It is usual for sequels to be questioned and belittled. That’s one thing the Wave II doesn’t have to worry about. It’s bigger and heavier than the original. Samsung S8530 Wave II official photos Yep, we know, it’s not a great update. Plus the first three differences over the original Wave are ...

    New Wave was cool in the 80s. Is Samsung`s new Wave II stuck in the past?...

    Pros: Quality build ; Decent camera ; Excellent video skills

    Cons: Bada is behind the times ; Poor app selection

    Verdict: The Samsung Wave II is a bit like a stereotypical bodybuilder. It has a rock-hard body that`ll impress passers-by, but there`s not quite enough going on upstairs. More than a year has passed since Bada launched, but it has hardly developed since and ...

    It's a canny move, which makes this the easiest to use of all the Nokia phones in our group test in the May 2010 issue of PC Authority. The OS is well suited to touchscreen use, with a scrolling desktop to which you can add shortcuts and widgets, and a simple grid-style application-launch view. It's easy to find your way around as a result, and full of neat touches. Importantly, browsing the web is quick and reliable. Maemo's browser is ...

    Verdict: The top hosts a standard microUSB slot for a data transfer cable or charger. The slot has a movable shutter connected to the body. Near we see a 3.5 mm jack. The phone has a dedicated DNSe chip responsible for the sound processing similar to that of....

    Now featuring a 3.7" 480 x 800 pixel enhanced LCD screen, rather than the 3.3" AMOLED panel found in the original, the Wave II now comes with a display as large as most of the top-end competition. This new LCD screen (sometimes called "Super LCD" or......

    The Samsung Wave 2 has washed ashore, offering much of the functionality of a proper smart phone at a reduced price. But is it enough of an improvement on the original Wave?...

    Pros: Large, bright screen ; Clever built-in apps ; Can record 720p video

    Cons: Not a huge change from the first Wave ; Bada doesn`t offer as many apps as other platforms

    Verdict: The Samsung Wave 2 is more of a tune-up to the original Wave than a vast improvement. If you`re looking for cutting-edge tech and constant updates, you should probably get a smart phone. But, if you want much of the power and u00e9lan of a smart phon...
