Samsung S7230 Wave BadaOS Touch Screen 5MP Camera Wifi GPS Unlocked Quad Band Phone (Black)
The Samsung Wave 723 (also known as the GT-S7230) is a competent but unremarkable device aimed at midrange consumers.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.
Bada is a pretty decent operating system, and when used in conjunction with the capacitive touchscreen display then we would imagine this to be a pretty pleasing experience.
Samsung are good at stills cameras in their phones, and the 5 megapixel unit comes with an LED flash, autofocus, panoramic stitching and smile detection. Unfortunately, Samsung are pretty poor at video capture and the Wave 723's maximum capture rate of 320 x 240 pixels at 15 frames per seconds.
The large 1200 mAh battery is quoted as giving up to 6 hours talktime on 3G and 25 days standby time. The Wave 723 weighs 100 grams without the protective flip and 114 grams when it is attached. The overall size is 110 x 54 x 12mm.
This is a quad-band GSM phone with dual-band 900 / 2100 MHz 3G support. The Wave 723 has a maximum download speed on HSDPA of 3.6 Mbps. WiFi support is also built-in, and the S7230 supports 802.11n networking as well as the more common b and g protocols.
As you would expect, the Wave 723 includes a multimedia player and also an FM radio. Media can be stored on the handset's microSD slot with a maximum capacity of 16GB. The S7230 also includes stereo Bluetooth 3.0.
