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

Samsung Wave 723 review


If you're after a decent, cheap feature phone, this isn't it

Keyboard is surprisingly responsive

Looks cheap, best bits of bada stripped out

Samsung S7230E Wave 723 review: Waving Hello!


It's been smooth sailing for Samsung's Bada OS and the Samsung S7230E Wave 723 is one of the first of the lineup aimed at the mass market. But beware, this smartphone may change the way you perceive feature phones forever.

3.2" 256K-color TFT LCD capacitive touchscreen, WQVGA (240 x 400 pixels), multi-touch input support ; Solid 11.8mm-thin metal body with detachable protective flap with leather texture ; Bada OS with Samsung Apps ; Quad-band GSM support with dual-band...

Low resolution screen ; Limited number of available applications ; No lens cover ; No DivX/XviD video support ; Web browser performs poorly with Flash ; Card slot is under the battery ; Preinstalled SatNav software is a trial only ; No ambient light...

Okay, back to shore – we had a fun time cruising with the Samsung S7230E Wave 723. Let’s get the negative impressions out of the way first – there is only a couple of those.

Samsung Wave 723 S7230E Review


Samsung spawned several Bada-based phones following the success of the Samsung Wave, one of which is the Samsung Wave 723 S7230E. The phone is only for portfolio building but it is packed with great features and priced affordably as a mid-range option.
