The Samsung S8600 Wave 3 is a phone that looks great. It has a beautiful screen and “packaging” that fits a smartphone. What sets the Samsung S8600 Wave 3 apart from other “smartphones” is the Bada operating system, software that is not so different from Android.
This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise because the Samsung S8600 Wave 3 is made so that it doesn’t deviate much from the Android standard under the auspices of Samsung.
The Samsung S8600 Wave 3 has a bright four-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with vivid colors, while a 1.4 GHz processor is hidden under the shiny surface. All this is packed in a 9.9 mm thin aluminum case.
Samsung S8600 Wave 3 has 4 GB of internal memory which can be expanded up to 32 GB with the help of a microSD card. Video conversation is enabled using the front or auxiliary camera of 0.3 megapixels, while the main job is taken over by the one located behind the phone with a resolution of 5 megapixels.
The Samsung S8600 Wave 3 runs on the Bada 2.0 operating system, which looks almost identical to Android. The user interface is exactly the same as the Samsung models running on Android, so it shouldn’t be an obstacle to use if you’ve already had one of the Samsung phones on Android.
The problem could be the fact that only a few models work on this OP, so there are not many applications for it. That could of course change in the future if Samsung decides to massacre the Bada family, so if you’re not addicted to the accumulation of apps the Samsung S8600 Wave 3 is the right choice. Among the installed applications there are Social Hub, Music Hub, MP3 player, and Polaris Office – software that allows you to read and edit Word and other Microsoft documents (such as presentations and spreadsheets).
CONCLUSION: The Samsung S8600 Wave 3 looks very classy. It responds quickly to any command and has a bright screen. If we exclude the lack of Android OP (whose absence is “compensated” at least in the visual sense), there is a point that goes in the direction that the Samsung S8600 Wave 3 has some kind of jump out of the cliché that will surely find its way to customers.
