Samsung Wave 3

price N/A launch Jan, 2012

phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 8 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Good, high-end build quality with metal chassis
  • Excellent AMOLED Display with wide viewing angles, bright colors and great contrast
  • Bada 2.0 is much more refined visually and is slick and smooth on the fast processor
  • Decent voice commands functionality
  • Good on-screen QWERTY keyboard
  • Good web browser
  • Decent camera for outdoor photography
  • Good audio quality
  • Good call quality
  • Good battery life (1.5 days with moderate use)

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Dimensions are a bit on the wide side, which makes it a bit unwieldy for people with smaller hands
  • Number of 3rd party apps available for Bada is still far behind Android and iOS
  • Samsung GPS Navigation is not as good as Google Maps or Nokia Drive
