      It is a cool smartphone

      The Samsung Wave, which is the first phone that used Bada Os that developed by Samsung. Samsung Wave has a super AMOLED screen, 1GHz processor and a slim design that easy to get hold on it. With its metalic body, it makes it look even nicer and cool. Other than that, it screen was anti scratch and i do believe that the super amoled screen is only have with Samsung. I don't see there are any other brand phone like samsung have a super amoled screen. With the super amoled screen, it displaying the colours and details at the highest quality with all the photo and video played on that phone.

      Moreover, in my opinion wave have a better sensitivity touchscreen, compare to other phone except iphone. Wave used Touchwiz 3D 3.0 interface that displayed the its 3D. In term of stability, I vote iphone. But in term of resolution and colour, I vote wave. Furthermore, Samsung Wave might doesn't have many cool application like iphone does, it only have a standard applications like facebook, twitter and email. But wave have a camera that works very well by integrating with the super amoled screen. With all the photo and video taken, we can view them at the highest quality and it is best for those who like to take photo. By the way, it can be insert with 8gb memory card or bigger.

      The camera was impressive with 5 megapixels, autofocus and flash and some other cool feature on the camera. The music player is cool especially with the 3D interface. A GPS application was built in too but with Samsung's own mapping system. The battery life time is good enough in delivering plenty of grunt.

      With the Bada Os that developed by samsung, i think it is their weakness as the os is still new and it still require more improvement on the stability and its application as compare to apple and android. Overall of the Samsung wave, it is a cool smart phone as compare to many smartphone out there with its competitive price. For those who want to own a touchscreen handphone, Samsung wave definately is a good choice for you in term of budget and feature.
