Is it possible that Wave 2 can be replaced with Android 2.3 instead of Bada OS? Specs of the phone are extremely good and can easily run Android. Any answers to the querry.

For those who blah blah about the screen , my advuised is pls see the actual hp screen

Amoled in n8 cant even match the Super LCD wave 2.

See for yourself before you can passed the judgement

amoled screen colour in wave 1 is so vibrant that it looks like the colour you see in cartoon movie where the colour are very articial though its looks attractive.

For Super Clear LCD , the colour tone is sharper and the vibrant is lesser which made it realistic closer to nature colour than the articicial amoled screen.

Hello Wave 2 users !! i am very much liking this phone and would highly appreciate if someone can help me finalize.i am a smartphone user for sometime now and i am really worried about the apps availability and future road-map of Bada.
I have been highly advised for investing in iOS or android, but this phone is providing me all that i want like high tech specs, good looks and great UI.
i am very high user of FB, Twitter, Google and Sales Force.
Current dilemma whether to go for this bada or android.For Android i can go for DEFY or HTC Desire.

Please help !

Is there any chance that they might release the Wave II with Amoled Display again ? Since there are news doing the rounds that Samsung is going to launch Wave 833 Smartphone with Amoled Display during the MWC. So, probably there is no shortage of Amoled now.
But Wave 833 has got only 800 Mhz Proc. and 150 MB Internal Memory. So, it is a step below the Wave II.
But it still gets Amoled. But No Amoled for the higher spec'd Wave II. Very Strange. Can't understand Samsung's Marketing Strategy.

BinKo, 09 Feb 2011Looks like a fake to me. But anyway only 800 Mhz processor when ... morethere is no such a thing as fake phone, there is no technology to make such a high quality phone.
so get your facts right mate!

ronx, 09 Feb 2011Just got my Wave 2 last week. The only word i could explain to i... moreHow many apps do you need to carry?
BADA has over 2500 apps most of them are better than anything I have seen in android, so what is the problem?
are you carrying 2000apps on your phone in one go?


the only problem with this phone is a rubish quality of display, why they changed it, short cut is never good, and they would loss money. because I am sticking with my WAVE I, which is the best phone ever made in my opinion
