I have maps.
The only way to get use them (I've found..) is to use the Google Widget that comes with the phone..
The Widget has a Search bar, Maps button and Mail button (thought the mail button opens up Gmail in the browser)

Enjoy :D

Also, I can't seem to find any version of Kies that supports this, yet :(
It supports the 5250, but not 5253, it seems. Still waiting for updates, I suppose.

S5253 lacks 3G application for its start up, only way to use it is to

Settings---->Location.

Even if u use this option u cant find any map displayed in the screen, rather it shows only ur latitude, longitude, blah... blah.... blah... in a textual representation.

I 've searched for other options to use GPS, no use as of now.

In nokia they 've MAPS application to use the GPS. I go with u:)

Gowtham, 05 Nov 2010Hi Sum1 Sumwhere India, Compare the clarity of this with noki... moreThanks for the inputs dude.

The right way to compare the camera quality is to see pics on a comp and not on the phone screen. Else, we gonna end up comparing the screen & not the cam. :) And Nokia 5235/5230 will win hands down if screen res. & colors are compared.

I too have found Samsung cams to be better than Nokia in general. But my issue with this phone is lack of apps., besides the low res. screen. Since even g maps does not support Bada, does this ph. have any kind of map/GPS apps?

Compare the clarity of this with nokia 5230/5235, u can find little differece since nokia has 16M colors and s5253 has only 256K colors.

Camera sounds better than those of 5230&5235. Even mediocre models from samsung stands high because of their camera clarity and sound.

Nokia 5230/5233/5235 has mono speaker, even S5253 has mono, but compare the effects of these. U 'll like samsung, for sure, those models from the former sucks! lol!!!

This has 5.1 surround(In headphones), which rocks!!!!!

Only advantage in 5230/5235 is 16M colors & 3G.

But in s5253, it has Wi-Fi, good camera clarity, awesome sound quality, responsive touch screen and 5.1 channel.

But its what I'd call tolerable. Not sure how irritating that would be while surfing with small fonts or seeing vids. One major issue is that it seems you cannot have g maps on this. At least not yet.

I know this phone has 3MP cam and Nokia 5235/5230 have 2 MP cam, but that doesn't say much about picture clarity. Have you actually compared the pic quality of both?

Dear samsung wave user who faced Wi-Fi & Internet Problems:lol!!

Contact ur network provider for using mobile internet and Wi-Fi.

Even i 've faced the same problem as u mentioned and u cant recieve the internet settings from ur provider since it is a new launch,(I suppose, since i recieved a msg "Ur handset doesnt supports this facility" from my network provider-I'm using AIRCEL).

Better u call to ur respective customer care, ask them how to manually configure internet settings.

Follow those procedures, until u configure internet settings u cant use Wi-Fi in ur mobile and it 'll show as DNS error.

Anonymous, 01 Nov 2010Could you please tell us how the GPS experience compares with No... moreHi all,

When compared with the GPS of 5230 & 5235, samsung wave S5253 is little less responsive since it lacks 3G and the former has.

But u cant compare the touch screen of samsung with nokia 5235/5230 since the latter lacks the sensitivity.

Camera: Quite good when compared with those nokia models since they 've 2MP camera.
Camera has lot many options to capture images.

I'm using a 8GB card right now with 6GB occupied and when i goto music player it 's little bit less responsive since i 've songs for 3GB.

Simply looks like an iphone while texting, music & video player and also it has a search option to find any file in ur mobile.

U can have up to 10 homescreens wit lots of applications as u wish(Applications can be downloaded through the inbuilt samsungapplications).

And the widgets help me a lot, especially "Buddies Now", dont compare the widgets of corby with this. Here it is quite different

Zooming of wallpapers is available to a certain extent which i expected and it makes my screen to look good. Even if less resolution images are squeezed to ur screen's resolution u cant find any blurred effect in those.

Wi-Fi works in a great way.

Threaded SMS view helps to keep track of all the conversations, but the SMS memory is only 1350 msgs in phone and in SIM card as ur network provides.

U can download games from any site with the respective resolution and it works good.

Most of the sites doesn't provide wallpapers for this model since it 's a new launch(Oct 2010). Better u folks can specify LG VIEWTY as ur model to download 240*400 images.

Hope u find this info useful.
