New specs leak confirms our fears: Samsung Galaxy Gear may only get 10 hours of battery life

0. phoneArena 30 Aug 2013, 18:04 posted on

Earlier today, we talked about the potential issues that customers will have to look out for with the Samsung Galaxy Gear and the Sony SmartWatch 2, because we're not convinced the hardware or software is ready for smartwatches yet. One big worry is battery life, and a new leak concerning the specs for the Galaxy Gear, it looks like battery life could be a problem...

Bad!

No watch is good with 10hrs battery.

I think Samsung is just showing it as a 'concept' device, and not a mass-produced product.

A concept that will crash and burn because I get the feeling the new Galaxy Watch will come bloated with features it doesn't need.

He would froth at mouth (his own confession) and start digging the ground to hide the iWatch after buying it ...

If they toke the same watch and removed Samsungs apps and branding he would probably buy 10 of them.

I can't imagine wearing a galaxy watch at the middle of the day and it suddenly turned off. So what's the use of a watch if you can't even check your time..

It's funny because my fears are that it's going to have a booring design and it's going to be made of plastic..

I can only hope for Samsung that this rumor is not true. It would destroy all their tries to present themselves as an innovator. What speaks in favor of the rumor is that the device is small and therewith doesn't feature much space for the battery. What adds to that is that Android is a pretty demanding OS when it comes to hardware to run smoothly. But powerful hardware drains the battery. WP8 and iOS need fewer specs to perform smoothly.

What speaks against this rumor is the common sense to not bring a 10h lasting watch to the market. Lets see how good Samsung really is.
