Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

Apart from efficient and advanced call management, I'd also like my smartphone to be able to perform functions like Pushmail, Windows Live and much more, just like the Samsung Wave Y S5380. Although the Samsung Wave Y S5380 might be extremely portable with its small exterior but I don't think it's worth against the cramped keypad it offers and even the functionality isn't worth the struggle. With all the advanced call management features present in the Samsung Wave Y S5380, it is good choice for business users like me. Bluetooth for file sharing is really not of much use to me, but this feature is really handy when it comes to hands-free calling. Even if my travel routes, both business and pleasure, are very much known to me I'd still like the reassurance from the GPS navigation on my phone.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

It looks really small and comfortable for carrying, but I can't type without misspelling the words at least 3-4 times, that's how uncomfortable using this Samsung Wave Y S5380 is. Video recording is a must on my phone, I just love recording and capturing the innocence of cake cutting or the craziness of a dinner party. I won't worry about the other features in the Samsung Wave Y S5380 as the camera is so average and a strong deterrent for me. The tiny memory of this Samsung Wave Y S5380 will not even last me a week. I always feel the more the better when it comes to smartphone storage and I would always chose the Samsung Wave Y S5380 with expandable memory against any other smartphones that are overpriced and overloaded with confusing features.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

As a smartphone, the screen size of the Samsung Wave Y S5380 is quite decent; but too tiny when it comes to gaming or reading. Reading is still fine, but gaming on a 0.832 GHz smartphone is really dreadful. I dunno what good is storage which is insufficient even for regular apps and programs. Extendable memory is always a great storage backup if you have a growing collection of ebooks, games and apps.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The first thing I noticed in the Samsung Wave Y S5380 was its 3.2 inches display. The screen size of the Samsung Wave Y S5380 is too cramped and so I can't text that easily on this screen size. The Yes, 2 MP camera resolution is not that cool. You can easily opt for any other smartphone with a better camera, it might even be cheaper. I don't think this smartphone can click awesome pictures, which by the way is my favourite hobby. I'd like my smartphone to do all my tasks simultaneously not just perform basic functions like browsing, messaging and emails. And I won't depend upon 2G networks for that. I keep checking the GPS for new locations and traffic updates. The USB connector lets me charge my phone even with my laptop and transfer files. The small 0.15 GB internal storage of the Samsung Wave Y S5380 feels quite miserly. I don't understand the use of this storage if it can't contain all my media files.
