Samsung Wave 723 Review

 

Samsung Wave 723 is the fourth bada phone announced (after the lowly Wave 2 and Wave 2 Pro), and it is already coming to market. Now we have our own unit here to examine how bada feels without all the hardware bells and whistles of the original Wave...

Samsung Wave 723 (S7230)

 

The primary hardware features of the Wave 723 are a 3.2" 240 x 400 pixel display, 5 megapixel camera, GPS, WiFi and 3.5G support. Usefully, the Wave 723 comes with a detachable leather style flip to protect the screen.

Samsung Wave 723

 

A responsive touchscreen and full spread of connectivity options, but the lack of Android disappoints.

Accessible OS ; Bundled with flip case ; Physical camera button

Low-resolution screen ; Limited app support

The metal backplate doesn’t entirely remove the slightly cheap feel of the plastic-bodied phone, either, which is far removed from the dense and compact body of the original Samsung Wave. Before you accuse us of harking back to unfair comparisons,...

Samsung Wave 723 review

 

The Samsung Wave 723 (GT-S7230E) is Samsung's latest Bada phone. If you remember, that's their own mobile phone software platform. Launched at MWC 2010 on the Samsung Wave , the company has always said it is committed to the platform. It is perhaps...

Great build quality, responsive screen, good level of connectivity for an affordable phone, camera pretty good

Some Bada oddities, none of the excitement of being part of a grander system like Android, poor video capture and playback, Samsung Apps can't compete with rival stores

There are a few places where the Samsung Wave 723 lets itself down. Although it is a budget handset, and some compromises can be accepted, it’s the strength of the competition that really leaves the Wave struggling for air. It covers most bases and we...

Samsung Wave 723 review

 

Samsung's second Bada handset demonstrates that less is definitely less

Good user-interface design ; High-quality stills camera ; Nice flip cover ; Responsive screen ; Pocket-friendly size

Small app store ; Not enough on-board widgets ; Poor video camera ; Poor video format support ; Short battery life

The Samsung Wave 723 needs a considerably expanded app store if it is to be a success.

Samsung Wave 723 Review

 

"The Samsung Wave 723 is a budget Bada phone with a 3.2-inch touchscreen with the protection of a leather flip case."

Similar to Android, OVI and iOS, Bada is designed to offer you access to apps via an app store. It's not a huge app store yet but Samsung seems keen on investing more time and money into Bada so we hope developers will follow suit.

Samsung Wave 723

 

With one fairly impressive Bada phone out of the gate, it hasn't taken Samsung long to follow up with its second budget-conscious smartphone.

There's no word yet from Samsung Australia about whether we'll see the Wave 723 down under this year, but we'll update this preview as soon as we know any differently.

Samsung Wave 723 SmartPhone Review

 

Samsung's initial attempt with their very own OS, Bada, – Samsung Wave - had too many first's to it making it an instant hit among users, thin aluminum chassis, a 1GHZ Hummingbird handset, for the first time ever Super AMOLED screen, were some of the...

The Korean manufacturer has indeed devised a mid-range compelling Bada handset that sure does steal the show in the smartphone market, but is yet to work on some rough edges like its OS, app store, and screen resolution etc. But the question still...
