For a long time, Samsung mobile phones and Sony Ericsson have been the underdogs in the Smartphone world, unable to match the seemingly unbeatable might of iPhone and HTC. However, with their latest releases, the electronics manufacturers are aiming to steal Apple and HTC’s smartphone crown. While the Galaxy S II, released in May, is well on the way to overtake the iPhone 4’s sales, the success of the Xperia Ray remains to be seen. Here’s how the two handsets compare.
The Samsung Galaxy S II is not only one of …
Have you ever played Doodle Jump, or a similar motion sensor platform game? Space Ark is a similar game, but for the Samsung S8500 Wave smartphone.
There is one and only character involved in this game, and that is controlled by the player. He continuously falls owing to the artificial gravity, so you have to make sure he gets elevation by bouncing on randomly placed clouds. As you go higher and higher, there are less clouds, in order to make the game more difficult.
There are many Samsung Wave games in which players have to burst continuous balls. This is the same game, but with a twist!
It can get a bit boring to simply find lines of circles with the same colour. There are similar games in which users themselves introduce the balls, such as Frozen Bubble for Linux, or as we reviewed right here at the blog, Bubble Bang and Hubbly Bubbly 2. SuperColorBall feels as if there is much more strategy to it, almost as a chess puzzle where the computer tries …
Samsung Wave users usually complain that there aren’t enough good free Bada games to play with – although not everything can be free, Polar Fishing brings a good entertainment experience to us.
I never get tired of puzzle games, especially those that can enrich the experience with plenty of colours, that the screen reproduces very well. If you aren’t a fan of puzzle games, this one might change your mind.
I know how to spell sudoku, but the joined ‘k’s in this Samsung S8500 game represents Kyrill Kober, the developer of this game – or so I think.
There are quite a few sudoku games in every single gaming platform, it’s a popular game like Xs and Os or Tetris. This sudoku, however, has added features that can make it more challenging - or easier, depending on your logic capability.
I’m not much into hockey games, but this free 3D Samsung Wave game focused on this sport is worth checking out for various reasons.
If you are looking for a fully-fledged game similar to those for PC and video game consoles, I hate to disappoint you, but this is not one. Think of penalty shoot-out and you’re getting close.

There are quite a few Carbon Bada themes at Samsung Apps, this is yet another one that is both popular and attractive enough for us to review.
This is not really one of my favourite themes, it fails to impress me, but the simplicity here might win your heart – everyone sees designs differently.

We’re in an age where actual 3D smartphones are a reality, but for those who don’t have 3D displays, there are always 3D themes, such as this one for the Samsung Wave.
Usually it’s difficult to review themes because the design and layout must be evaluated in a subject way – I may like it and you may not, or the other way around. In this theme, there is a focus on 3D, so it makes things easier, I know what to look for.
I enjoy finding Bada games that actually make my brain work instead of just giving me fancy graphics or finger work. Word Shake, developed by the British Council, is one of these.
There are some of us that believe in magic, miracles and many other superstitions. For everyone else, there is illusion, and that’s taught in this Samsung Bada app.
There is absolutely no doubt that illusion or magic tricks can be really awesome, but then there are those (such as that Arrested Development guy) who fail completely at this, either because the trick is lame, or poorly executed.
