Samsung Wave Y Review

0. phoneArena 16 Mar 2012, 10:10 posted on

The Samsung Wave Y may not be high on the most wanted smartphones list as an entry level phone with the company’s own bada mobile OS, since it has to fight with its Galaxy Y Android counterpart for attention. Given that bada has way less apps in its store than Android, Samsung should have thrown in some incentives for potential buyers to prefer the Wave Y before its Android cousin...

Samsung wave Y is definitely better than galaxy Y but too bad it doesn't have android. Here is the comparison between the two:

I don't know about the galaxy Y much, so I couldn't compare these two.
But after I have gone through few reviews I bought Samsung Wave Y and I am very dissatisfied with this phone.
Apart from the disadvantage that, it doesn’t support more apps because of it bada operating system, I is not working in lots of situations as a simple phone.
I couldn’t answer the phone some time, the green bar get strucked; I had to restart the phone.
The micro speaker gives very bad quality in sound.
The signal goes off suddenly and after some time when I noticed that I am not getting call what I am expecting, then I used to realize that the phone is not taking the signal and I had to restart.
When I select network automatic mode, it can’t switch between GSM and UMTS (3G) properly, instead I goes to emergency calls only mode.
And I am not sure about the reason but I couldn’t open my office web mail in the browser in this phone, may be the browser is not sending a secured request (but I used to check my companies web mail in my last phone and the major reason I went for this smart phone is to access companies web mail which I am not able to do now.)
So like this I have faced issues with this phone, so guys please take a while before you buy this phone.
