Could The Samsung Wave 3 Be Your Ideal Smartphone?
The Samsung Wave 3 is the latest in the Wave range of Bada OS powered smartphones. It makes a great alternative to the numerous Android and iOS options out there thanks to an impressive list of features, some of which I will look at in this article.
One of the best features of this phone is its 4 inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen. This was one of the first S-AMOLED screens on a smartphone, and provides outstanding image quality thanks to its brightness even when outdoors, wide viewing angles and its pixel resolution of 480x 800. There are several more recent smartphones which outdo the Wave 3 in terms of its pixel resolution, but the results are sure to please the vast majority of users when watching videos, viewing photos and playing games.
As an internet browsing device, the Samsung Wave 3 does a very good job. The best connection is provided by the handset’s Wi-Fi connectivity, but if you do not have access to a wireless network, then 3G coverage is called upon. This uses an HSDPA (High Speed Download Packet Access) connection which provides download and streaming speeds of 14.4 megabytes per second which is the same as phones like the iPhone 4S and HTC Sensation. Additionally, it also has a Wi-Fi hotspot feature which can turn a 3G connection into a Wi-Fi signal for non 3G devices like laptops.
The Samsung Wave 3 of course has a built in digital camera, which operates at 5 megapixels (2592x 1944 resolution) producing great image quality on resulting photos. It has a number of features included which aim to improve results and simplify the task. These include autofocus, LED flash, face & smile detection and image stabilisation. Most of these can be set to automatic for convenience, or disabled altogether to give you greater control. The camera also comes with the ability to shoot video footage, with the highest setting being 720p (high definition).
The processor is rather powerful at 1.4 GHZ. It is a single-core chip, and although not a dual-core offering as found in many newer smartphones, it still provides all the computing power needed to ensure that all aspects of the phone’s hardware and software alike run smoothly. Alongside the customisable interface of the Bada OS interface, a great user experience is provided.
A feature which is likely to attract many to the phone in the first place is its styling. The Samsung Wave 3 is a great looking phone. At just 9.9mm it has a slim profile, which further enhances its aesthetic appeal. If you are looking for a stylish alternative, the Samsung Wave 3 is worth a closer look. It is available now on SIM free deals, which allows you to choose your preferred network and tariff by installing the appropriate SIM card.
