Samsung Wave 578 ReviewSamsung Wave 578 6
Samsung Wave 578 is another entry level bada OS phone, with a 3.2” display and 3MP camera. It has just one difference – the Near Field Communication (NFC) chip inside.
Is this a reason enough to get the Samsung Wave 578 or there are better offers out there? Read on to find out...
The left and right sides of the front are curvy, indeed making for a more pleasant experience when holding the phone or manipulating its touchscreen. The sides and back also have tapered edges, adding to the holding comfort. The volume rocker on the left, as well as the power/lock and camera keys on the right, are small and unobtrusive, but still easy enough to press.
You can compare the Samsung Wave 578 with many other phones using our Size Visualization Tool.
The 3.2” LCD screen sports just 240x400 pixels of resolution, which is the main drawback of Samsung's cheap bada handsets, since the majority of smartphones with a screen of this size sport at least 320x480 pixels. The display also has weak viewing angles, but is bright enough under direct sunlight to offer decent visibility.

Because if you are fen of something that is crap ... and somebody tells you it is a crap ... you will troll because you are probably the only person who thinks that is the future or whatever ...
P.S. IT IS CRAP ... so the review is not biased ...

It is not crap, it is an entry level phone. Phonearena gives it a lower rating than it deserves, just because it has bada. Had this phone been running android it would likely have gotten a better rating.

Thats because Android is better. Way more apps, better user interface, much more customization, etc etc.

maybe it is because you in the US think all american OSes are the best ???
IOS, Android and WP7 is what you like. Symbian and bada you don't like, even though they are just as good if not better than those american OSes.
