The Wave 723 has all the features of a good mid-range smartphone and it is also competitively priced.
However, it is let down by a number of problems including a narrow, cramped keyboard and connectivity problems.
Also, there are many other attractive mobile platforms such as Android and BlackBerry that offer similar features at the same price point. And these operating systems also have more downloadble apps to offer.
After all, the apps are what really drives a smartphone and Bada has a long way to go in terms of developer support for apps.
Overall, the Wave 723 is a decent phone and hopefully Samsung will fix most of the problems with a future OS update.
