Is The Samsung Wave Worth Buying?

The cell phone market is awash with great smartphones at the moment, and the new Samsung Wave is a great addition to it. With its large 3.3″ inch screen, 1GHz processor, 8GB of internal storage and world-roaming 3.5G, it is certainly a top-tier phone. Looks wise, it is slim and professional, perfect for the on the go businessman or businesswoman. What you will instantly notice about the Samsung Wave is the rich and vibrant colors that it displays. Samsung have taken their industry-leading AMOLED screen that they used on their 2009 models and improved on it, with the end result being a display that other phone manufacturers cannot match. The 800 x 480 pixels display really makes it a joy to watch videos or surf the Internet. Another big plus to the improved AMOLED screen is that it reflects less light, meaning that using it outdoors on sunny days is no problem.

There is, unfortunately, nothing revolutionary in terms of user interface, but it is not lacking in it either. This is mainly due to the fact that Samsung have heavily borrowed from popular systems used by other phone manufacturers. In particular, the user interface looks and feels quite similar to Google’s Android. You will have few, if any, complaints about it, as it clean and very responsive. More apps would be nice, but Samsung have at least made a big step in the right direction by making their new operating system an open platform. The Samsung Wave is particularly good for people who find themselves sending and receiving a lot of messages, whether they be SMSs, emails or Tweets. The user interface makes it quick and easy to check for and send out new messages, as you can look after all of your accounts from a single messaging feature. The calendar features are also worth highlighting, as Samsung have clearly made efforts to make them a cut above what you would expect. You can link up your calendar with your social networking accounts, and it is easy for your friends and contacts to know what you will be doing when (that is, if you want them to know).

So, whilst not a revolutionary phone, the Samsung Wave is definitely one to consider. If you are looking for a sleek, professional phone, that runs efficiently and smoothly, you will be hard pressed to find a better option. It shows that Samsung are still a big player in the smartphone market, and you can expect to see much more from them in the future.
