Learn About the Samsung Wave
The Samsung Wave is the Samsung’s newest smartphone, and the first to make use of their new operating platform (Bada). It looks great with its slim design and large 3.3″ screen. It runs off a 1GHz processor, which puts it at the top of the tree in terms of speed and responsiveness, and comes with a sizeable 8GB of internal storage. It supports a wide of media files; pretty much all of the ones that you would expect it to. All in all, in terms of specifications, you will struggle to find a better smartphone on the market right now. The show-stopper is Super AMOLED screen, taking the class-leading AMOLED screen used on Samsung’s range in 2009 even further, with clearly richer and more vibrant colors. The panel itself displays 800 x 480 pixels, which makes it ideal for surfing the web or watching videos. This new design reflects less light and, therefore, handles better outdoors. Samsung achieved this by removing layers of the touchscreen technology and effectively placing the OLED display directly under the surface layer of glass. The end result is a screen that no other manufacturer can match at this time.
The Samsung Wave’s user interface takes its cues from other popular systems, most notably Google’s Android. It is not anything revolutionary, but it keeps up with the competition in terms of features. Aesthetically, the user interface is clean and does not feel as confusing as previous versions. It is also very responsive, a direct consequence of the Samsung Wave’s 1GHz processor. From an apps perspective, Samsung really seem to be reaching out to developers, as they have made their operating system an open platform and have an app store up and running. To summarize, the Samsung Wave provides a fantastic use experience and runs fast and smoothly. It is not a game changer, but it is definitely worth considering if you want a professional looking phone that is packed with features. If the Samsung Wave is anything to go by, you can expect to see Samsung introducing some exciting devices on its Bada platform. It does, however, need to ensure app development does not come secondary to hardware, because these days there is an expectation by consumers to have a wide range of apps available.
