Samsung has released its highly-anticipated bada-powered phone Samsung Wave in India. Samsung Wave really boasts of some impressive tech specs that combine a super AMOLED screen, 1GHz processor and a slim design.
Samsung Wave is the clear winner on the first inspection as far as looks, feel and quality is concerned. The phone is very slim at less than 11mm thick and the metallic build quality is apparent the second you hold it in your hand. The front is sparse in terms of buttons, with call, terminate and menu keys the only things apparent other than the 3.3-inch capacitive screen. The menu key is sculpted and nicely tactile, although perhaps a little large. The rest of the phone is pretty simple: volume up/down keys on the left-hand side, lock and camera shutter keys on the right-hand side and the top sees a 3.5mm headphone jack and a microUSB connector with sliding cover.
The most stunning feature this device incorporates is certainly its Super AMOLED screen display. You need to see it to believe it! The moment you switch on the device, that Super AMOLED screen jumps to life – and, believe us, it is quite a sight to behold. The Wave's 3.3-inch 480 x 800 pixel touchscreen is amazingly crisp and vibrant displaying colours and details in the highest quality.
The next feature to look for is Wave's touchscreen interface. Again, Samsung has surpassed its previous standards with regards to the touchscreen interface on the Wave – it's responsive, tactile and seemingly flawless.
The other cool features that come embedded with Wave smartphone do nullify the very few negatives it has got. The device offers two home screen modes: The first one comes with five home screens where live widgets can be stored. While, the second one is somewhat like a generic menu, but just laid out over an additional three home screens and features things like Twitter, Facebook, Address Book, Email and Settings etc.
