Samsung Wave - Review and Specifications

Samsung Wave review:

Samsung has released its highly-anticipated bada-powered phone Samsung Wave in India. Samsung Wave really boasts of some impressive tech specs that combine a super AMOLED screen, 1GHz processor and a slim design. But how does it fare against the established heavyweights such as mid-range Android, RIM, Apple and Symbian devices? Does this handset pose any potential threat to the leading players and existing mobile platforms?

Undoubtedly, first impression matters. And Samsung Wave is the clear winner on the first inspection as far as looks, feel and quality is concerned. It's a slim and lightweight device with a stunning Super AMOLED screen display. Surprisingly, the device appears equally impressive when it is switched off. Furthermore, the latest Samsung bada phone gives a sturdy feel in the hand with its polished metallic body.

Before, we delve further let's recap some of the credentials this device has been accredited with in the recent times. Samsung Wave has garnered enough curiosity with the many 'firsts' this device has been labeled with lately. Samsung Wave is the first DivX HD certified phone, the first device to operate on Samsung's new Bada OS platform, the first Bluetooth 3.0 enabled device, first one to introduce Super AMOLED screen and the first smartphone to feature the latest Picsel File Viewer.

Now back to the basics. The most stunning feature this device incorporates is certainly its Super AMOLED screen display. You need to see it to believe it! The moment you switch on the device, that Super AMOLED screen jumps to life – and, believe us, it is quite a sight to behold. The Wave's 3.3-inch 480 x 800 pixel touchscreen is amazingly crisp and vibrant displaying colours and details in the highest quality. And we believe, the Wave could easily give some high-end devices – such as the Nexus One – a serious run for their money.

The next feature to look for is Wave's touchscreen interface. Again, Samsung has surpassed its previous standards with regards to the touchscreen interface on the Wave – it's responsive, tactile and seemingly flawless. For instance, if you compared it to the touchscreen fluidity of a device like the HTC Hero, there really is no comparison – and the Hero, in many respects, is generally considered a better device.

However, there are some flip sides to this device as well. Similar to other devices in the market, Samsung Wave too cannot guarantee perfection. If you are using this device for the first time, you will face a tough time to get accustomed to this device and to learn how it actually works at first place. You might experience UI reasonably tight. Also, you will not get any video introduction like the one you get on the HTC devices. Ultimately, you are pretty much lost in limbo to figure it out for yourself.

The other cool features that come embedded with Wave smartphone do nullify the very few negatives it has got. The device offers two home screen modes: The first one comes with five home screens where live widgets can be stored. While, the second one is somewhat like a generic menu, but just laid out over an additional three home screens and features things like Twitter, Facebook, Address Book, Email and Settings etc. Also, you can easily switch between the two "screen modes", as all you simply need to do is to press the Wave's main button, which is located in between the Call and End-Call button. However, for the first-time users, it may take some time to figure out this feature, which again can be a bit annoying.
