So i have not gone with the Samsung Wave because i wanted a dual sim (GT – B7722), but in my oppinion, this BADA os of samsung is superior, and this phone is plain amaising.
The touch screen can not be more precise, the size and weight are very good knowing that there is size and power overhead in dual sim phones, and finally, the features, oh the features.
So here is what i have noticed up to now
1- the auto reject feature, you can create a list of contacts that the phone rejects as soon as they dial, it will show you a missed call, but it will not ring altogether, and after the first ring on the other side, a busy tone is sent
2- The qwerty keyboard when you turn the phone sideways to write a message is amassing, but what is really amassing is the level of perfection in the T9 dictionary and predictive text, it seems that not only spelling mistakes are accounted for, but the phone knows what characters reside beside what chars, and fixes the mistypes of closely aligned characters for you, the end result is better than a solid button QWERTY
3- This fake call feature may come in handy one day and be very useful, what happens is that you can let a friend you trust record audio on your phone saying, we need you to come immediately, then you can instruct your phone to call you at a certain time and play this prerecorded message, this way you can say (Oh sorry i must go, something has just come up) and you can even have the people surrounding you hear it, interesting feature i never expected to see on a mobile phone, maybe i will use it one day.
4- Answering machine
An infinite set of options such as the ability to make the phone silence the ringtone when you flip the phone on it’s monitor, a nice music player that becomes a widget on one of your (by default 3 desktops).
One thing i like that i don’t think has been mentioned before is that the three desktops can have 6 wallpapers, where i made the wallpapers say the desktop number i am on in addition to having the operator’s logo, so the desktop wallpaper tells me if the default line is currently my first sim card or my second.
Parlingo is an IM client that has all other clients that people commonly use, it has Live messenger, Google Talk, facebook chat, and much more the thing has it all
One thing to note is that to remove someone from the auto reject list, you will need to navigate to.
menu > settings > Application settings > call > All calls > Auto Reject
In any case, the above is not a complete list of features you find on this phone, but i am sure someone else has already made an exhaustive list of bada’s features on the internet, so why reinvent the wheel
