Samsung Wave Y review: Young blood

 

The latest midrange offering from Samsung features the ever familiar Andr...wait-what you mean, it's not Android? But it looks exactly like Android! Well, it seems things just took a more interesting turn. The Samsung S5380 Wave Y runs the latest...

3.2" HVGA capacitive touchscreen (320 x 480 pixels) ; Bada OS 2.0 with Samsung Apps ; 832 MHz single-core CPU ; Quad-band GSM support with dual-band HSPA ; Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n connectivity, Wi-Fi Direct support, Wi-Fi tethering ; Built-in GPS receiver...

Bada OS has limited number of available applications ; Fixed focus 2 MP camera, no flash ; No screen haptics ; No proper Smart Dialling ; SatNav software only a 30-day trial ; Poor loudspeaker performance

Samsung Wave Y Review

 

The Samsung Wave Y may not be high on the most wanted smartphones list as an entry level phone with the company's own bada mobile OS, since it has to fight with its Galaxy Y Android counterpart for attention. Given that bada has way less apps in its...

Sturdy design with a nice back cover finish ; Zippy, good-looking interface behavior ; Good call quality and loudspeaker

Video capture is pretty useless ; Embedded YouTube videos don't show in the browser

Fast quick UI ; Good build quality

Video recording is kinda useles ; No flash support means no YouTube videos in the browser ; Very few apps

Samsung Wave Y Young Review: Try something new

 

Introduction Samsung's third line of smartphones called Wave, run on the company's own Bada OS, has been hugely overshadowed really in front of the insanely popular Android powered Galaxy series of phones. But…

Stable platform, battery life, tough body, sound quality

Limited footprint with very limited app access, camera package, browsing experience

It is a difficult decision to recommend this phone with its very limited footprint. You have the cannibal Android-powered Galaxy Y breathing down its neck, and also from some competitors. Let’s quickly list down what we’ve found out –

Samsung Wave Y Young Review

 

Samsung's other set of smartphones, the ones running on their Bada operating system have been under the radar off late, with the runaway success of their smartphones running on Google's Android operating system. The Bada operating system started off...

The Samsung Wave Y Young is priced at Rs. 7,150. At this price tag, it directly competes with the Samsung Galaxy Y and the Spice Mi-350n. In terms of specs alone, the Spice Mi-350n might provide more bang for your buck, with a better camera and a...
