Samsung Galaxy Y Vs Samsung Wave Y

Both of them are vary very slightly in terms of their specifications. Only a couple of things separate these phones.

1. OS

Galaxy runs on Android 2.3.5 while Wave runs on Bada OS 2.0. Both are completely different OSes, but Samsung has made sure that the UI looks and feels the same on both phones – TouchWiz. Galaxy Y runs on Android and thus has all Google apps and more importantly has access to the Android Market(Google Play) where there are millions of apps. On the other hand, the Wave Y is limited to a few thousands of apps that are released for the Bada OS. Though little, there are generally apps for basic needs in the Bada Store.

In OS, Galaxy Y is the clear winner of the battle.

Galaxy Y has a 3″inch display that has a screen resolution of 240×320 pixels meaning that the pixel density is 133ppi. Wave Y on the other hand has a 3.2″inch (slightly bigger) screen and a better resolution of 480×320 pixels meaning a relatively much higher pixel density of 180ppi.

What to choose?

If you are caught in a fix trying to choose between both phone, then you should think what you need the most. If you are so worried about how things look on a phone, then you should get Wave Y because it has a much better display than the Galaxy Y. But apart from the display, the  Galaxy Y is the best choice to arrive at because of Google and Android.

The Winner is Galaxy Y.
