Samsung Wave Y Preview

0. phoneArena posted on 27 Sep 2011, 08:39

The Samsung Wave Y mimics the lowly specs of previous entry-level bada phones like the Wave 575. Having “Y” in the title is an indication that the phone is supposed to be priced sub-$200 without a contract, and is geared towards teens and emerging markets. Is the Samsung Wave Y just low-end, or low-end but with a twist that will justify its purchase over some affordable Android handset? Read on our preview to find out...

I know this is a preview but bada still doesn't impress me at all.

Oh no, an unflattering preview on a Bada phone.

Looks like we're never seeing you-know-who back here again.

Looks like a C6-01. I'm not a Samsung hater. In fact, I'm a fan. But this has to stop. They need some originality. ( That was a meant as a constructive criticism)
