Samsung Gear S3 Classic Unboxing & Review - The Tech Corner

At long last! The Samsung Gear S3 Classic is finally here! I greatly enjoyed the Gear S2 experience, but I used that for fitness tracking. My daily wearable was my Huawei Watch. I sold both to get the Gear S3 Classic. The Gear S3 has a lot going for it, but was it worth my gamble to replace two watches?

Hit the jump to read more of my take on the watch that didn't make my video review!

are some of my Pros & Cons.

  • Good-size screen
  • Well-built. Bezel easier to
  • Water resistance is a huge
  • Make & Review phone calls
  • Pair headphones to the watch
    for calls or music consumption
  • Watch can be paired to
    non-Samsung phones (compatibility varies)
  • Samsung Pay both NFC and MST!
  • Beautiful AMOLED display can
    be read in sunlight

  • Samsung Pay limited to debit
    and credit cards
  • Can’t sync cards between
    Samsung Pay on watch & smartphone
  • Watch notifications are
    inconsistent. Sometimes there’s a few seconds in between notifications
    received on the phone then pushed to watch
  • Battery life is a mixed bag.
    My battery life has dropped to 2 days max with wifi off
  • S-Voice easily triggers.
    S-Voice still sucks
  • Only 1.6 GB of storage
    available for use after first setting up the watch
  • Can only pair the watch to
    one smartphone at a time
  • Screen lock on the watch can
    be annoying
  • Outdoor Mode for the screen
    can lag to adjust when adjusting to sunlight
  • Too expensive
