Good day guys! I need help! Please tell me how can i get my wave II back to life! When i turn on my phone it only shows a mobilephone with a exclamation point then a computer, i dont know why! I think it's because when i upgrade the firmware of my phone via kies, it shows an error, ERROR UPGRADING FIRMWARE, then when i click the emergency firmware recovery it again shows an error, now my phone is nothing, i can't use it anymore,please somebody help me! I want my wave II back! :'c

i bought a Wave 2 a week back and i am really enjoying it.
Why it is better than Xperia X10

1.Battery back up is better than X10.( U can also compare the GSMarena specs)

2. I am able play 720p videos and they are amazing to watch in the SUPER CLEAR LCD display.It supports various formats. Xperia has only LCD.

3. Camera clarity is amazing and far better than X10's 8MP camera. Wave 2 has front camera for 3G video call. X10 has no front camera.

4. Audio clarity is also good and for videos it has 5.1 audio support with the earphones.

6. In Bangalore price is Rs15,700. Xperia costs 22,000

7. GPS map is good and has auto rotate, which the google map of X10 doesnt have. If you still prefer google map, you can download the java verrsion for Wave 2.

8. Wave 2 has TV out.

The only drawback of BADA over Android is it has less free apps. But to tell u the truth my friend has downloaded more than 30 free android apps but he hardly make us of them in his X10.
Even if u want to purchase apps on BADA OS it costs only around Rs66 to Rs250.

So go for WAVE 2

the phone good but the apps are worse

Awesome phone.....must buy.
Bought it last month...i never faced any hanging issues as mentioned in earlier posts...
The 'touch' and response are fantastic with 1GHz processor. Menu items are larger in size compared to any other Samsung smartphone unlike Galaxy S2, making it the best user interface a phone can have.
I felt a pinch with the availability of free Applications though. HD Video recording and playback are really good. The interface for messages and media player are really innovative. scheduled messages feature - task manager.Inbuilt Navigation refuses to work for some reason...issues with license synchronization and sensor calibration. Downloaded Samsung navigation app also doest not work.... will have to check if i am using them correctly...if any body was able to use the inbuilt Route 66 navigation ...please tell me the way to use it.

The Speaking-Microphone is to small, you have to talk loud so that the one whos listening on the other phone hears you loud enough. ;)
