What is the point of this?

Bada San (unregistered) 30 Aug 2011, 05:24 posted on

Having used the Wave II, having upgraded to the bada 2.0 beta and reviewing this announcement I am having difficulties figuring out the below:

1. What is the point of developing a proprietary system, when with all the new upgrades it is resembling the best sellers (Android and iOS)???

2. What is the point of developing a proprietary system, when with all the new upgrades battery life is getting lower and lower???

3. What is the point of introducing a new flagship to the Wave series with a faster processor when the previous flagships were having no lags at all???

4. What is the point of introducing a new flagship with a faster processor but battery of the same capacity? It is thinner... But...:

5. What is the point of introducing a new flagship with a shorter battery life??? Doesn't a proprietary system give its manufacturer a chance to optimise?

The reason Samsung is coming with the Wave 3, is to have a high end phone with bada, and of course to sell lots of it.
Also Samsung will be pushing bada more and more now, as they very likely will ditch android and only sell bada phones in the future.

But it doesn't answer his question.

1) The only reason why it resembles other mobile OS's is because of Samsung's TouchWiz UI.

2) We can say the same thing on why other OEMs adding new upgrades and visual effects and having low battery life (HTC)

3) The only reason why the Wave 3 is released when the Wave 2 and the original Wave doesn't have any lag because it's already a year or two years old, and they have to release something to bring in new customers.

4) Look at number 2

5) Test out the Wave 3, they might've done something that might've made the battery life better.

It still has double battery life in stand by and half our longer call time then popular iPhone 4S. And the same battery life as Galaxy Nexus which has higher capacity. Android is drawning battery as hell.

Does Wave 3 phone have sound profiles. Unlike Samsung Wave AKA S8500 the sound profiles were present in menu-.settings->sound->profile. There were sound profiles which could be modified.
