Samsung officially announced the arrival of the second Bada handset, the Samsung Wave 723 or Samsung S7230, depending on who you talk to, just in time for us to snap a gallery of shots at this year's IFA in Berlin as we roamed through the 28 halls.

The Wave 723, which is also going under the moniker of the S7320, has a 3.2-inch, WQVGA, TFT-LCD touchscreen and has connectivity via 3G (WCDMA/HSDPA: 900/2100 MHz), Wi-Fi (b/g/n), Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR and it also has a high speed USB port.

Its camera is a 5-megapixel one with an LED Flash with auto-focus, and you can also geo-tag and edit your shots on board. Videos are QVGA (encoded MPEG H.263, H.264).

It has the TouchWiz 3.0 UI with integrated phonebook and there's 90MB of memory on board - although you can chuck in a microSD to expand this tiny amount.

In the hand and that leather cover will be the first thing you want to ditch, unless you were a fan of the company's Prada phones, and while it has multi-touch, the Bada OS offered little else to impress you over the company's Android offerings.

A slow and not overly responsive touchscreen completes the package, suggesting this isn't going to fair well against the competition when it heads out to the world later this year. - PAY MONTHLY PHONES The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now available on EE who have been awarded the UK’s best network for the fifth year running. RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
