Samsung Gear S review: Between two worlds

 

Samsung is knees deep in the latest trend of gearing up your wrist with an extension of your smartphone. The Gear S however walks the extra mile of offering independent 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity along with full telephony support.

2-inch curved Super AMOLED multi-touch screen with a resolution of 360 x 480 pixels (300 ppi pixel density) ; Plastic 67 g body, permanently mounted on a proprietary wrist band, available in black or white ; Dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400...

Way to big and clunky for most wrists ; No standard band-replacement options available, and you can only get a black or white one from Samsung

Smartwatches are obviously here to stay. The smart wearable concept has been the object of experimentation for quite some time but it's only now that it really picks up the pace of development. It seems that every major manufacturer is on board this...

Samsung Gear S review: an ambitious and painfully flawed smartwatch

 

The Samsung Gear S is a smartwatch that's also a phone. But it still needs a phone -- and a Samsung phone, at that -- to be of any use. That, combined with its bulky design, small app selection and $350 asking price, makes the Gear S difficult to...

Works as a standalone phone ; Colorful AMOLED display ; Decent battery life ; Comes with a cradle that's also a portable charger

Still needs a phone for activation and loading apps ; Limited app selection ; Bulky design with proprietary wrist straps ; Expensive

The Samsung Gear S is a device that doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Sure, it's great that it can act as a standalone smartwatch and doesn't need a phone to make or receive calls. Except, well, it does. Not only does the Gear S need to be paired with...

Samsung Gear S review: A flawed first step on the road to a wrist phone

 

It makes phone calls even when it's away from your phone, but Samsung's big, curved, new smartwatch doesn't do all the magical things we'd hoped for.

The Samsung Gear S has a big, bright curved display, decent battery life, comes with its own bonus battery pack and can stay connected away from a phone with its own 3G data or Wi-Fi. It's attractive, albeit rather large. It's a complete on-wrist phone.

It still requires a recent Samsung phone to pair with and install apps, and its standalone features don't work with all apps and notifications. The Gear app library is still weak compared with Android Wear.

The wildly ambitious Samsung Gear S smartwatch doubles as a full standalone smartphone, but the software and apps available don't let it do as much as you'd expect.

The dream of a fully standalone wrist gadget that can make phone calls, stay connected and even help you be sounds good, at least on paper. To own a smartwatch usually means having it be perma-paired to a phone in your pocket: it ends up being,...

Samsung Gear S ( black)

 

The Samsung Gear S is one of those. This is Samsung's sixth smartwatch in a little over a year, but it has one big difference: it gets its own cell service and data. It even has its own SIM-card slot. It's a watch that's also a phone.
