Samsung Wave II (S8530), more than android? check this out..

Design
Wave II brings touchscreen candybar design, like a smartphone with mostly premium OS. With dimensions of 123.9 x 59.8 x 11.8 mm, Wave II appears elongated. At the bottom of the screen, Wave II is equipped with three buttons, each button Call, Menu and End. On the right there is screen lock button and the camera shutter. Who's on the left side there are volume control buttons. Gate micro USB, audio 3.5 mm and external speakers can be found at the top of the phone.

When paired with its predecessor, the Samsung S8500 Wave, both smartphone looks almost identical. What distinguishes the two is only the size of Wave II are slightly larger and the design of the three buttons below the screen both.
Wave II is dominated by scratch-resistant metal material that made ​​her look masculine but still elegant. This material choices that may cause the Wave II had a steady weight digenggaman, 135 grams.

Screen
Wave II is the first phone screen brings latest technology to Samsung, Super Clear LCD. Advantages of this screen is used DNIe (digital natural image engine) is usually embedded in high-end television products output Samsung. Compared with AMOLED screen-owned Galaxy Super S, the screen has its own advantages. Both screen displays images with amazing contrast and color saturation levels are different, so a bit difficult to determine which one is better, depends on the tastes of each user.

With larger dimensions, of course Samsung Wave II also brought a wider screen than the Samsung S8500 Wave. Samsung Wave II has a screen size of 3.7 inches, 0.4 inches adrift than the first Wave.
In terms of screen coating materials, Wave II, apply the scratch-resistant surface 'oleophobic'. Problem toughness, not inferior to 'Gorilla Glass' which is widely used in other high-end smartphones.

BADA 1.2
If you never use the output Android smartphone Samsung, you'll have no trouble operating the Wave II. Because, like I wrote when reviewing mobile PULSE previous Bada, a lot of similarities between the Bada with Android especially those embedded in mobile phones are made ​​by Korean vendors. The key similarity lies in the TouchWiz UI is pinned on both.

Homescreen
By default you will find three homescreen which became a part of a panoramic desktop. When we shift from one panel to another desktop, background images on the desktop will also move and create a depth effect, exactly that can be found on the homescreen display Android. Each homescreen can be crammed into a variety of widgets by pressing a virtual button located on the left of the screen, just below the signal bar. Total homescreen can add up to total 10 pieces, by turning the phone into landscape mode when it is in the widget settings.
At the desktop you also can find the panel at the bottom of the screen contains shortcut alphanumeric keypad, contacts and messages.
What is also similar to the Android OS is the notification tab that can be accessed by pulling it from the side of the screen. Apart from displaying notifications, this tab also allows us to turn on or turn off the Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and silent profiles.

Notifications Tab
Entering the main menu by pressing the menu button, you can access the various applications installed in the phone. Views gridnya again similar to Samsung's Android which also mimic the iPhone's main menu. To change the position of the icon, press the virtual button labeled Edit button located to replace the widget.

Task Manager
Although relatively new, OS Bada was able to do multitasking, which means you can run multiple applications simultaneously. In addition, for easy management of applications running Bada is also equipped with features such a task manager which can be accessed by pressing the menu button for a moment.
There is some development that brought Bada in version 1.2 include Over The Air software updates and features T9 Trace. With T9 Trace, when typing a word, you simply move the finger in sequence from the first letter to last and when the finger is released the word in question appears on the screen. Similar features are embedded Swype on some phones Android and Symbian.

Internet and Connectivity
Wave II default browser fairlycomfortable to to use to access the virtual world. Moreover, this browser already supports pinch to zoom, flash, multiple windows and a quick translate. To use the quick translate, press and hold down on certain words in the text, will appear translate option, if your selected Google translate directly directed towards the immediate present the results of translation of the word you choose.

Browser Display
For business connectivity, smartphone certainly classmates Wave II is capable of running on various channels such as GPRS, EDGE up to 3.5G. And if you're not quite satisfied, Wave II is also equipped with Wi-Fi feature that can be activated in a practical way to access the notifications tab.


Not only that, as in Android Froyo, Bada has been equipped with features Mobile AP. That way you can make the Wave II, a kind of portable wi-fi hotspots. This feature can be activated by accessing the Settings> Connectivity> Mobile AP.

Camera
5-megapixel resolution camera on the Wave II, it seems more than adequate to meet our needs in capturing the image. Moreover, the six options available shooting modes including singles, beauty, smile shot, continuous, panoramic and vintage. In addition there are 14 scene mode options so we can adjust the lighting conditions for maximum results. Wave II camera also supports touch focus, so that we can determine areas of focus with ease.
Video recorder mode was no less good. Because the Wave II is capable of recording moving images in high definition format of 480x720 pixels (HD 720p).


Gestures are a number of features related to the way we move or treat Wave II, including Double tapping, Orientation, Overturning and Putting Down.

Double Tapping is a kind of shortcut that we can open the applications that have been previously selected by tapping two times (double tap) using a finger in an empty area on the homescreen.
Orientation consists of 'Change Orientation' in which the orientation of the display will change according to phone position and 'Flow Items in Tilt Direction', where items rather move in the direction of the slope of the phone. For example when you access a collection of images in the media browser, you can simply tilt the phone a little to the right to see the next picture.

By enabling Overturning, you do not need to panic when the phone rang in the middle of a meeting. Simply turn the phone back to tummy and automatically sound of ringing will disappear without refusing the call.
're Putting Down function when you want to use the loudspeaker when a call, do I just put the phone on a desk or other areas of the active loudspeaker itself.
Gestures feature settings can be accessed in the Settings> General> Gestures.

Samsung Apps
Apps Samsung contained in Wave II is different to that in the Galaxy S. Samsung Apps on Galaxy S contains only free application that can run on the Android platform, is a tersematkan at Wave II Samsung Apps functions like a store other digital applications. Inside are a variety of applications that can be downloaded Bada free or paid. Unfortunately, the number of applications available yet sebayak Apple's App Store or the Android Market.

Conclusion
Samsung BADA version 1.2 with all its features are embedded in the Wave II is quite reliable. It's just that many similarities with the Android operating system is like a double-edged sword. On the one hand can be easier for users who have tasted Android phone, while on the other side of the market could be the reason for not selecting them and turned to the Android are definitely more 'mature'.
But apparently there is no harm in giving a chance on this OS, since they are new age plus the opportunity to develop a wide open thanks to an open system that dianutnya.
