this forum is a great source of information for ppl who've bought the Wave! Keep it up!

I bought the game "Lets Golf" and unfortunately sometimes when i try to play it. It'll come up with this error msg and force me to close it. "not enough resources close some application"

Is anyone else getting this problem? I have nothing running in the background.

Firmware XXJG5 the best firmware at the moment. Improvements over previous FWs are as follow:

1. Fast, smooth and very stable
2. GPS : R66 finds satellites in less than a minute.
3. Email: Uni-inbox but context menu doesn't work, Exchange sync works now for contacts and calendar pretty well, push all exchange folders
4. Samsung Apps has "Update All" function
5. Over the air Bada OS update in Setting Menu
6. Camera quick view opens the right image
7. Wi-fi icon can show wi-fi signal strength
8. Alarm has auto-power up function
9. Fackbook seems to work faster
10. There are icons in some setting menu
11. Battery lasts 18 hours with exchange push, 3 email accounts (update every 1 hour) and SNS (update every 3 hours), 48 hours without push, 4 days without any emails or SNS updates.

Urgent Waiting Features: (with these, Wave can be my primary phone)
- Remote Desktop App
- Google Maps App
- Proper Youtube App
- IMs such as Nimbuzz or IM+ (social hub should be working soon for windows live, yahoo and gtalk)
- not hoping for Skype though as it becomes iSkype
- Text reflow and flash 10 support in browser
- Torch app for flashlight

Sammy is working hard. Hopefully, Wave will be a perfect smartphone in 6 months. :D

i read this about this mobile on its review , can any one tell me what does it mean please.:

"Some apps like the Samsung Store, Facebook or Twitter require a configured packet data profile and an active SIM card to use Wi-Fi connectivity. Still those services donít actually use packet data instead of Wi-Fi, they just check if itís available. Strange indeed."


  • cooza

you dudes should download ARDEFENDER in the apps store.its free.what a freakinly cool game!!!and you dont even have to print the pdf file cos you can point your phone at it on your computor and play anyway.what a buzz!!i love this game so much,i think im gonna cry!!

  • walid elsaid

just one word it,s perfect phone . i wasn,t prefer samsung befor but the wave change the story.

  • Damos

I must say the gaming experience in Wave is absolutely amazing with the Super Amoled screen and the high res.
D/l NS Shift guys, it's even better than the embedded Asphalt.

Also does any one know how to play flac files on Wave?

To samsung and all wave users:

After using Samsung galaxy i7500, Htc legend, nokia 5800 and nokiae71 and now using samsung wave for the last 2 months i want comment on few things which all users and samsung should notice...

1. Its true to say that "its time of war between Android and Bada"...No doubt android is excellent Os but Bada has many significant integrations which needs near 10 apps to do the same thing in android...example
Task manager, Tethering, contacts sync with SNS,Memory Management, Task killers and more...

2.One important thing which many of you have not noticed is battery backup while using push mail service.....In android we get tight sync google mail but it needs gprs/3g data to be switched on always which drastically reduces battery by 50% because of data used by gtalk,and other background services.....but in Bada it lasts for 2 days while using push email with sacrificing data connection for other apps......

3.One area which can make Bada a true rival for android is its Applications store....for this only samsung can help.....

4 if you compare Bada 1 and Android 1 which came in 2008, Bada year from now bada 1.x would able to beat android 3.x.....

what you think......
