Samsung Wave 578 Review
voice quality on the Samsung Wave 578 is with high enough volume in the earpiece, with slight audible distortion on the highest volume. On the other end people said the Wave 578's microphone produced loud, clear-sounding voices.
The 1200mAh battery is rated for 7 hours of talk time in 3G mode, which is above average and typical for the low-end of bada handsets.
Overall, we found the Samsung Wave 578 to be a pretty unimpressive handset, due to the low screen resolution and the insufficient number of apps in the store, unless you are in a dire need of the NFC chip.
The thing is that NFC probably won't catch up soon enough for you to take regular advantage of it in the handset's lifetime. T-Mobile in Germany and Poland was using the phone for trials of its contactless ticket purchasing initiative for EURO 2012, and that's about it for its practical NFC applications. For more information what the NFC technology is supposed to bring, you can read our in-depth article.
If you are looking for alternatives at the phone's price point, many low-end Android phones, like the Samsung Galaxy Mini will do trick, and you will have access to the 250 000 apps in Android Market, plus better screen resolution.
Software version of the reviewed unit: bada 1.1

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.
