Samsung Wave 3 details

The Chic Smartphone

Samsung Wave 3 is an excellent masterpiece from the Korean handset manufacturer. The device comes in an uni-body design with 9.9mm slim shaped bar brushed with aluminium surface. On the front panel, it carries a 4-inch brightest Super AMOLED touchscreen display covered with Corning Gorilla Glass. The new Samsung Wave III is the successor model of Samsung Wave II S8530. As the succession advanced, the device progressed from Bada OS to bada OS 2.0. Capturing the innovative spirit, the bada 2.0 and 1.4Ghz processor delivers an seamless and exciting performance. The Samsung Wave 3 uses a 5.0 Megapixel camera with LED flash on the rear-side and 0.3MP VGA camera on the front. The rear-shooter is capable of recording HD videos in 720p at 30fps quality. To get connected with friends and relatives, the Wave 3 comes loaded with ChatOn messaging service, Social Hub, Entertainment Hub and several apps.

A Bada Flagship
09 Jan 2012 By Smruti Panda On

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??nnAnd 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.nnPros:n1. Gorgeous 4” SuperAMOLED screen. SuperAMOLED along with Nokia’s CBD are the best mobile displays in the market today (which obviously includes the retina display).n2. Very appreciable build quality. n3. Excellent battery backup. With moderate usage, 2-3 days may be expected.n4. A wonderful video player. The stock video player plays everything you throw at it, and it supports subtitles too.n5. Good 5MP camera.n6. Bada OS is modeled a lot like Android and hence behaves similarly, which given the current market trend is not a bad thing at all.nnCons:n1. Audio quality is the upper mid range is something that is taken for granted. Samsung wave III however fails to deliver.n2. Video recording isn’t really impressive.n3. Limited 3rd party apps (I am actually being polite in saying only ‘limited’).n4. No GPU. Most mobiles at this price bracket and even those that are cheaper have it.nnCompetition:nThe cons are hardly potential deal-breakers but it all boils down to buying a OS which has only a handful of phones, very limited apps and has been updated only twice in the last 2 years. But then, very unlikely would one disagree that you are getting good value for your money.nSony Ericsson Ray offers a very capable 8 mp camera with latest android (planned upgrade to ICS). The Sony Bravia display is among the best in LCDs, resolutions Is high as well, although screen estate is small (3.3”). Sony Ericsson Neo V offers a similar package with a downgraded 5 mp camera but a 3.7 inch screen. nSamsung galaxy R I9103 has seen a massive price reduction in the last few months, and is now available at a similar price. It brings a bigger screen and a dual-core cpu (and gpu) to the table. LG Optimus Black and HTC desire are amongst the other once high end phones now available at a similar price.nSamsung Onmia W I8350 offers Windows Phone at a cheaper price, although a smaller 3.7 inch screen, everything else almost remaining same as wave III. Nokia Lumia 710 has been grabbing headlines of late, it might well be worth the look.nLast but not least, lets not forget our good OLD Symbian phones. Nokia 701 might be a tempting package if you are thinking out of android.

@Smruti ...No GPU
21 Jan 2012 By Nikhil Rane On

Wave 3 has a Qualcomm Scorpion SOC...Clocked at 1.4 GHZ and it features a ADRENO 205 GPU . so i would like to correct info in one of the reviews made earlier by a buyer..nBada has limited Apps but samsung will merge Bada OS with Tizen and then the its would be backed by Intel and then one can expect some good apps..nI have a Wave II and its a really good phone and having used bada 2.0 , i must admit it has very much improved from the previous iterations
