Snapping creeper shots could turn out to be pretty fun. And the way the camera is designed and the way you take the shot is pretty shnazy !

It's just a watch. I don't see how it can really have that many apps.

Apple already had thousands of apps for its "smartphone". But, it wasn't called a smartphone.

Apple will catch the next boat, just like Samsung did with their flagship smartphones.

Samsung jumped the gun with their boxy, predictable smartwatch.

This watch is fully compatible with Note 3 and barely compatible with S4 or any other android device. Samsung is just trolling you with this junk.

Although I would agree but I just read this morning that The watch will be compatible with the S4 and Note2 by October.

The only reason it is currently only compatible with the Note 3 is because the Note 3 is their only device with 4.3. Once the S4, Note 2, & S3 are upgraded, they will be compatible also.

Why do you need 4.3 for it to work. It is the same framework. Photosphere work on 4.1 with the right apk.

I don't know the why of it. Probably has something to do with the fact that the watch runs 4.3 also.
