Samsung Wave smartphone review

The Samsung Wave phone is manufactured in Korea and is the first smartphone that operates in the bada system. It has a 3.3 inch AMOLED screen. The telephone is also integrated with the social center to enable communication features and social networks. It also has a high-speed 1 GHz processor, multitasking features and lots of memory that gives the user a lot of flexibility.

The phone shows the commitment of the bada phones to deliver innovative and well-connected smartphones to the world. It comes with a social center that connects you with Twitter, Facebook and all other social networks. The phone is capable of supporting different video formats such as MP4, XviD among others. Samsung has also produced the first Bluetooth 3.0 connections with this phone and has 802.11n Wi-Fi. All this allows phone users to download features from Samsung’s app stores.

This device has a 5 megapixel camera that comes with functions for smiles detection, camera image editing and panorama capability. In addition to this, the phone has 2GB of storage (flash storage) and removable storage microSD.

The device has received many accolades in the mobile phone market. The device is powered by bada, brings to light the super AMOLED and has sold more than one million units in the European market since its launch. It received solid sales records in Germ, Austria and France, where it was considered the best selling smartphone.

Bada has also produced other Bada devices to help provide greater visibility of these phones. The Wave 723 has a boxed design unlike the original device that has an angular design. This smartphone has been introduced in the Chinese market, whose aim is to revolutionize the smart phone market.

The phone supports the Bada SDK 1.1 and retains all the specifications found in the internationally acclaimed version. It has a 3.2-inch touch screen, a camera with 5 megapixels and LED flash, microSD card slot, Bluetooth and support for Samsung applications. The price of the Samsung Wave 723 is slightly lower than that of the Wave and is being launched in the European market.

We also have the S8500 Wave that is also compatible with the bada operating system. The phone has a screen that is beautiful, a remarkable design, a camera with 720p recording in HD, software to share data through Wi-Fi. Its user interface is better than what there is in the market.

There is definitely a wave of Samsung in the market. All the features of this phone are intended to change the phone market, as we know it today. Bada aims to change the market without a high price tag and move Samsung Wave phones to the next level. This way you can compete with the other smartphones in the market.

How smartphones beat computers


In a recent study, it was found that computing is moving in 2 important directions:

1. Software centralization or, (software as a service)

2. Decentralization of devices.

What does this mean for you?

1. Cloud vs. Local computing
The cloud (read: Internet-based) is becoming the low-cost way to take advantage of an enormous amount of computing power for your personal use.

It has been widely reported that in the coming years, up to 20% of companies will not own any IT assets.

All real work will be done in a constantly updated software on servers very far from our portable equipment.

2. More and more “BYOD” will be expected – Bring your own device
The interface with the cloud will be increasingly provided by the employee, not by the employer.

3. Your “device” in the future will probably be your smartphone, not your current laptop or desktop computer
As we see with the iPhone, the personal communicator who also accesses the Internet quickly and efficiently is where we will all be soon.

If the trend lines are extrapolated, telephones or devices with telephone applications will be the way most of us will access the Internet by 2015.

Online backup data storage is becoming increasingly popular and many services even offer a small amount of storage space for computers and (soon) smartphones in the cloud.

Facebook is also going to govern … I’m seeing it with my 15-year-old son and his friends. My husband and I have difficulty communicating with them outside of Facebook; the emails do not take us anywhere.

It was also predicted that half of the transactions we currently do in which we interact with people will be done online through online banking and purchases.

Because the fire hose of the data reaches us, the filtering of the data that reaches us will also be increasingly important.

That is, by converting the avalanche of information, we now approach the information we are really looking for.

Conclusion: if the trends continue, in the next 5 years, you will make most of the transactions in the cloud. (I’ll thank you for looking at my items on your smartphone).

Android Phone – Revealing hidden features

Are you an Android phone user, but are unaware of most of the features it offers? Do you want to discover more secure and interesting features on your phone? Read this article to learn some of the tips and tricks of Android, which will be useful.

Most people in the world today use Android phones daily for calls, messages and more. Android is the mobile operating system, which most phone manufacturers use on their phones. There are many features, instead of calls and messages to examine. Explore hidden features and many tricks to save time on your device.

The basic problem, the face of the user of a telephone, are the problems of the battery. Most Android phones have a built-in power band option, which when activated, provides a faster disconnection of the entire phone battery, killing applications. Another feature is that you can be the developer of your own phone’s configuration. Go to ‘Settings’, select the ‘About phone’ option and touch the ‘Build number’ of your phone seven times.

A countdown will be shown on screen in the screen, followed by a command that will indicate that you are now a developer and that ‘Developer option’ will be displayed just above the ‘About phone’ option.
This ‘developer option’ can also be used to reduce the delay of your Android phone.

By reducing the ‘Window Animation Scale’, ‘Animator Duration Scale’ and ‘Transition Animation Scale’ in ‘Developer Option’, from 1x to 0.5x, your phone can feel faster than before. Now you can control those annoying notifications of the application by long pressing the notification of the application, in the notification bar, which will show an information icon in the right corner. By touching this icon, you have the option to prioritize your notifications. You can block unwanted applications, hide private information, or select the priority mode for most previous applications.

To zoom in and out of your Google maps while driving, all you need to do is just tap twice in the place and swipe up or down. This tip will help you avoid the problem of pinching your phone’s screen while managing your phone so it stays in place while driving.

Today, children use their parents’ phones more frequently. To prevent your children from participating in unsafe games, adult content or accidental access to your bank, this feature will be very helpful. Go to ‘Settings’ and then to ‘Security’ and activate the option ‘Fix screen’. Open the application you want to fix and protect, then press the overview button to set the application.

Another interesting feature is the games incorporated in Android phones. In ‘Settings’, select ‘About phone’ and touch the ‘Number of versions’ of the device several times to obtain this function.

Facts about unlocked smartphones


Unlocked smartphones are something that many people are looking for because they want a new phone that they can use with the service provider of their choice. If you want to buy a used smartphone, make sure it is unlocked, otherwise¬†it will not be useful. Luckily, you can buy unlocked cell phones at your local electronics distributor. There are many people who sell cell phones online and when buyers receive them, they find that the phone is locked. If you get a good offer on your cell phone, you should not worry about that, since most cell phones can be unlocked with a simple code associated with your phone’s serial number.

The reason why many of us do not buy unlocked cell phones is because we buy them through a mobile service provider. When you buy the phone through a provider, you buy it with your operating system installed. When the operating system is installed, you will find that the service provider wants to keep you subject to you service by not allowing you to go anywhere else. Most of us consider that cell phones are a bit disposable, but when you buy smartphones, they are usually an investment and not something you want to get rid of simply because you are going with a new provider.

The fact is that if you buy cell phones directly from an electronics retailer and the phone is not associated with any agreement, you will be buying unlocked cell phones. The reason for this is that the cell phone has not yet been linked to any service provider. It is important to keep in mind that the fact of buying unlocked mobile phones does not mean that your mobile phone will remain unlocked. When you sign a contract with many service providers, they can block your phone. This can cause problems if you plan to travel internationally and want to buy prepaid SIM cards. Fortunately, even if your cell phone provider blocks your cell phone, you can buy unlock codes that allow you to go with a new provider or use those useful prepaid SIM cards.

Smartphones are a great investment and will allow you to do more than just make phone calls. When buying your phones, you should know if they are blocked or unblocked, and when you find a service provider, you should ask if they will block your phone. An unlocked phone offers you many more options, so, if possible, you should keep your phone unlocked.

The smartphone buyer’s guide

It seems that more and more smartphones are coming to the market every day. It is difficult to decide what you might need compared to what you might want. I saw it with many people who got on the iPhone cart. Do not get me wrong, it’s a great phone, but if you want to make the most of your money, consider some of these things when you buy:

What operating system do you want?

Many phones work with Windows Mobile. There are also phones with Palm OS, Symbian and, of course, Blackberry. Linux fans will be happy to know that Palm is also developing a Linux-based operating system for its latest smartphone. Think about what you like and also think about what you want to use your phone for. If it’s just for the basics, any of these are good, but if you want to edit Excel files, Windows may be the way to go.

How big are the screens and does it have a QWERTY keyboard?

If you are going to surf the Internet a lot or see/edit files on your phone, make sure you have a large enough screen, because, let’s face it, trying to read everything on a small screen is not exactly efficient. The same with the keyboard. If you are going to write many emails, or even if you use text messages frequently, a QWERTY keyboard, preferably one that has larger keys, will make it much easier. And since many phones have removable keyboards these days, you do not have to sacrifice mobility for functionality.


Just like your computer, make sure you have enough memory to be able to download and run the programs you expect to run on your phones. The expansion slots are quite standard these days, but if you are going to use many different programs on your smartphone, such as a laptop, get as much memory as possible.


Of course, voice plans are important but do not forget the data plans that vary a lot among operators. Look for the best offer and do not skimp. If you are going to download and do many heavy things on the Internet, consider going with unlimited use. Other things to consider are the coverage. I live in Hawaii, so Verizon and T-Mobile seem to offer better coverage. Are you traveling and looking to use your phone in other countries? Then consider a GSM phone.

All the other bells and whistles.

What are you using this phone for? Is it primarily a multimedia device? Are you using it to run Office while on the move? If you like to take pictures, make sure your phone has a decent camera. Think about what you are looking for and you should not end up paying large data/voice charges every month on a smartphone, all you do is call people.
