Samsung Wave 3 or S8600 belongs to the Bada OS 2.0 that instantly catches attention of people with its big and bright screen. With this phone Samsung has taken a great leap by making this phone competent enough to compete against high end Android based phones. Samsung Wave 3 Review shows that this is a solid and stylish metal shell phone, with remarkable body, and capacity of multitasking. This big screen phone has the best video player in it.
Samsung Wave 3 is no phenomenal phone; however with its 4” screen with 16M colours and AMOLED based capacitive touch screen; it definitely catches the fancy of people. Its scratch resistant body with inventive slide up construction is definitely great. It has Quad Band GSM support along with HSPA. Its GPS comes with a digital compass along with DLNA support that is easy to use. While the applications supported on the phone are very less but still it comes with a few good free applications like Polaris Office. People feel that this phone gives a next gen look with high quality sound output with great user interface and easy to use applications.
Though with its magnificent looks, Samsung Wave 3 has already created a niche for itself but still it has a long way to go to rival the already existing smart phones. It is a tall order, but coming from Samsung it is worth a try...all one needs is to have a fresh approach to accept its Bada platform!
