The Wave II doesn't lack any modern communications standards and has WiFi, 3G+ and Bluetooth 3.0. It's perfectly good at picking up signal and allows reasonable quality voice calls. We would still have preferred a slightly higher maximum volume, especi...
Good General usability and finish quality, Screen: responsive, good contrast and accurate colour reproduction, Responsive, Decent battery life...
Bad Less memory, Performs the same as the Wave I but costs more...
Bottom line The Wave II doesn't bring anything new that the first Wave didn't have already. The only real differences are a larger screen and less memory. Like its older brother, it's fast, responsive and intuitive and offers a decent multimedia performance...
At the end of the day, we'd say that the shortage of apps in the Samsung App Store would be the main deterrent for anyone thinking of buying the Samsung Wave II, and which might push them towards an Android handset. The Samsung Wave II is a very capab...
Good The standout feature of the Wave II is its wonderfully colourful and bright Super Clear LCD capacitive display...
Bad The Samsung App Store is still rather short on stock, although it's getting better all the time...
The Samsung Wave II follows up an earlier device of the same name, the original Samsung Wave. The first Wave launched a new operating system on the world, Bada, and we saw it again in the Wave 723.Sitting underneath a familiar TouchWiz user interface...
Good Long battery life, Great build, Smashing screen, Good text entry, Nice web browser...
Bad Understocked app store, Not enough widgets, Poor navigation software , No smart dialling, Poor linking of Twitter and Facebook contacts...
Bottom line The Samsung Wave II follows up an earlier device of the same name, the original Samsung Wave. The first Wave launched a new operating system on the world, Bada, and we saw it again in the Wave 723.Sitting underneath a familiar TouchWiz user interface...
The Samsung Wave 2 has had a seriously stealthy launch in the UK. I’s now on sale, not that Samsung has been bigging it up much, instead going all Galaxy, all Android all the time with its marketing hype – curious perhaps, since the Samsung Wave 2...
Good Great screen, build, battery and AllShare...
Bad bada has barely changed...
Bottom line Apps don't make or break badaIt’s interesting to see Samsung pursuing feature phones while all its rivals switch to a smartphone and cheap-dumbphone approach with little in between. As a result, the Samsung Wave 2’s only real rival is the original Wave...
Nearly every recent touchscreen handset that we've seen has featured Android, so the affordable Samsung Wave II makes a pleasant change. This device runs Samsung's own Bada operating system – read on to find out if it has what it takes to beat more exp...
Good Despite being affordable, the most impressive thing about the Samsung Wave II is its screen. Measuring in at 3.7 inches, it boasts a pin-sharp resolution of 480 x 800 pixels – easily enough to match or better most high-end smartphones. Whether you'll like the Samsung Wave II or not depends almost entirely about what you want in a phone. If apps are important to you, and the ability to download ne...
Bad Although the integrated approach of the Bada operating system will please those looking for something a little more simple, it's also the Wave II's downfall. Granted, the majority of apps available for Android or Apple handsets are trivial and pointless, but some are genuinely useful, and it's easy to feel lost without them on the Samsung Wave II.
Bottom line The Samsung Wave II is a decent feature phone. Sure, it can't match the best smartphones for apps, but it doesn't try to. If you just want a simple touchscreen handset for texts, calls and browsing the web, the decent screen and battery life make it we...
There€s something to be said about Samsung€s persistence in continuing to release phones based on the bada OS, given how far Android has come since the first Wave handset was released.The second model has now arrived, and it€s fair to say that the smartph...
The Samsung Wave II S8530 is a Bada OS smartphone with a 3.7in SLCD and a 5Mp camera. Here's our review. Amidst all the brouhaha surrounding the more established mobile operating systems such as Android, iOS and Symbian, it's quite easy to forget Samsu...
Bottom line There is no reason why at £244 the Samsung Wave II S8530 shouldn't be top contender for your next mid-range smartphone. Yes, it may not have a widely accepted mobile OS and the benefits that come with it but on its own, the Wave II is a very good smart...
The original Samsung Wave came out last year to general approval as a cut-price smartphone running on the company’s new Bada operating system – a curious development given Samsung’s own endorsement of Android. Testing the water: Samsung's Wave II Howev...
Bottom line The Samsung Wave II updates the popular original with a bigger screen and improved video camera. If you have the original this is more of a tweak than an overhaul, though if the HD video means a lot to you it’s worth considering. For the rest of us, i...
Samsung’s original Wave from last year was an attempt at a high-functioning smart phone at a lower than usual price, thanks to Samsung’s Bada OS, which is supposed to be cheaper to implement than the likes of Android. It did a pretty good job too, and...

Bottom line A solidly decent smart phone though it’s not necessarily much cheaper than comparable Androids Key specs3.5mm jack, 5 megapixels, Bluetooth, FM radio, Li-ion battery, microSD, MP3 player, Touchscreen, Wi-Fi...
The Wave II might not have cutting edge technology flowing through its veins, but its designers obviously decided that premium quality means using materials like metal and carbon fibre - and that's a good thing. While the latter doesn't feature (how many...
Good Excellent build quality, clear display...
Bad Bada feels dated, lacks support of Android, pricey...
At around £270 sim-free, the Wave 2 is strictly in the mid-tier of smartphones - a good £100 cheaper than its stablemate the Samsung Galaxy S, while on paper offering many a similar camera and interface. Running Samsung’s own Bada interface instead...
The big platform players of the smartphone scene these days are Apple's iOS and Google's Android, but there are other pretenders to the throne. Bada is Samsung's own stab at Android's vital organs, and the Samsung Wave II is the highest-end phone to use t...
Good Quality build, Decent camera, Excellent video skills...
Bad Bada is behind the times, Poor app selection...
This is quite a rarity these days, a Samsung phone that doesn't have the Galaxy brand name. The Samsung Wave 2 is the successor to the relatively popular Wave from last year. It has a few really nice improvements that are evident from the off, all of w...
Bottom line Here we are at the end of another review. I have enjoyed most of my time with the Samsung Wave 2 and I hope I have explained well enough what my experiences were like as I really do think BADA as a smartphone operating system has some potential. But a...
Samsung has a prolific presence in the smartphone sector, with a number of Android-based handsets doing the rounds, plus a Windows Phone 7 offering. Not content with that, Samsung also has also developed its own operating system, called Bada. Bada has...
Bottom line The Samsung Wave II is well made, and has a large, impressive screen. But we aren't fans of Bada. The user interface has its good and bad points, and these largely balance each other out. But smartphones need a strong library of third-party software to...
