Your Samsung Wave mobile phone includes many features to enhance your phone experience. Learning to use all the included features, whether for school, work, or fun, makes your smartphone more than an accessory, it turns it into the workhorse that Samsung intends it to be. From their interfaces to downloading music, smartphones, like the Wave, are changing how the world communicates.
Featuring Samsung's Amoled touch screen, which measures 83.82 mm diagonally, the screen supports 16 million colours. Advantages to the display include wider viewing angles and increased sharpness with vibrancy. With crisp, clear colours, the display screen, although a bit on the small side, allows the user to make out fine details even in bright sunlight.
A responsive touch screen provides both smooth swiping and scrolling. The built-in accelerometer changes the screen orientation quickly. The portrait keyboard is small and responsive, and in landscape mode the keyboard enlarges quite well. Below the screen's display there are several buttons, including Talk, End, Power, and Menu. You also activate the camera below the screen. Ports are on top of the phone and are clearly displayed and designated.

The user can add widgets on up to ten different home screen panels.
