    The latest midrange offering from Samsung features the ever familiar Andr...wait-what you mean, it`s not Android? But it looks exactly like Android! Well, it seems things just took a more interesting turn. The Samsung S5380 Wave Y runs the latest version of the Bada OS, 2.0. Like us, you may be used to Samsung being almost synonymous with Google`s mobile OS these days.But they`re obviously still pushing their in-house platform on the Wave lineup,...

    The Samsung Wave Y may not be high on the most wanted smartphones list as an entry level phone with the company`s own bada mobile OS, since it has to fight with its Galaxy Y Android counterpart for attention. Given that bada has way less apps in its......

    Pros: Sturdy design with a nice back cover finish ; Zippy, good-looking interface behavior ; Good call quality and loudspeaker

    Cons: Video capture is pretty useless ; Embedded YouTube videos don`t show in the browser

    Verdict: The Samsung Wave Y is a pleasant handset all-around, with no major flaws to really pick at. It sports a comfortable and sturdy design, made handsome by the faux brushed aluminum back, and has a bright display with above average for the category pixel...

  • Great phone that fits your budget.

    Great phone that fits your budget.

    Overall: Samsung Wave Y is an amazing phone. It's almost a clone of Galaxy Y but without the OS. Moreover I'm really not an android fanboy.nnTo begin with, The BADA OS is pretty decent. It's fast, hangs very rarely and is very responsive.nnThe 832 MHz processor is sufficient for multitasking.(But please, don't overuse the RAM, it will get really slow!)nnThe screen size is sufficient... although i had a bit problem with the keyboard initially, but now i'm used to it(however it has slowed down my chatting speed bit, but no regrets!)nnonly "DRAWBACK" that some ppl find with this phone is the lack of millions of APPS! But the fact is 90% of the Android Apps are useless,. So, I'm really not willing to stuff my phone with thousands of apps which i will never use in the future. I'm happy with the handful of good apps the Samsung has provided. But I would really want them the develop some useful apps.nnPS: there is no secondary camera in this phone. That is just a sensor, not camera. There's only one primary camera at the back.nnCONCLUSION: go for it, you won't be dissatisfied. Moreover, it's a break from the Android monotony!!

  • Great buy for the price tag

    Overall: I got this phone just 2 days ago. Great delivery service by Flipkart people. nComing to the phone.....its great!! Bada os is nascent in the smartphone arena but still its competitive enough! Even though the no of apps that bada has is pretty less compared to the android or the ios, the existing apps are more than enough for what you'll require for the daily usage. The phone runs on both the 2G and 3G netowrks (its supported upto 3.5G). The capacitive touchscreen is good for typing messeges and the virtual qwerty keyboard is totally hassle free. It rotates according to the orientation of the phone. The touchscreen is very responsive and you wont have any problems regarding it! The phone also has a front facing VGA camera for video calling (which is not mentioned in the flipkart description). The dolphin web browser works just fine and has no problems in loading the web pages in both the mobile as well as regular full web page view. GPS/GPRS too works finely. The phone has no issues detecting the wifi networks and also has works well with it! nThe 2 mp camera is pretty good for a fixed focus camera and the images are crisp clear. However it lacks led flash and hence pics in dark are not up to the mark.nThe music player also works very well.nOver all a very good smartphone for the price tag of 7000!
