Samsung Wave M Review
Introduction:

On our own count, the Samsung Wave M is not supposed to replace the Wave 723, which was a midrange bada alternative with some clever design tricks to make it stand out. It is introducing a lower- midrange category in the bada lineup, as it sports a 5MP camera and a larger screen than the entry level Wave Y, but keeps the same resolution and processor.

With this filing issue out of the way, let's examine what will make the Samsung Wave M stand out in comparison with its low-ranked Wave Y brethren and the plethora of Android handsets with similar specs out there.

In the box:

  • Wall charger
  • microUSB cable
  • 2GB microSD card
  • Quick start guide
  • Warranty leaflet


Design:

The back cover seems brushed as if with metallic finish, but is made of plastic, and is pretty slippery. It is a somewhat bulky piece for its screen size at 0.48” (12.2mm), and there's enough grip on the sides. It is light, but comparatively thick, and this chubbiness, coupled with the signature tapered back of the new bada handsets make it easy to hold.

You can compare the Samsung Wave M with many other phones using our Size Visualization Tool.

The 3.65” LCD display sports the same 320x480 resolution we find on the lowly Wave Y, which means  that its 158ppi pixel density is worse than the category average - the interface looks granular throughout. Sunlight visibility is decent only when the screen is at full brightness, and you have to do this manually as there is no light sensor.

We have a 5MP camera on the back with an LED flash, situated next to the speaker grill, and the addition of a front-facing cam compared to the Wave Y is a nice touch. The volume rocker on the left, power/lock key on the right, and the home key underneath the screen are all easy to discern, with good travel.
