Samsung Galaxy Note 7 replacements still have issues with overheating batteries

A Samsung spokesperson stated that the issues many customers complain are “completely unrelated to batteries” and that they are just isolated cases that have something to do with the mass production issues...

Both the S2 and S3 look great, much better than any square watch. The S2 runs fanatically, and is more functional and smoith than the iWatch. This year's iWatch is just a Fitbit.

They'll never know how good the gear series is. I've owned both lines, and the gears murder the Apple Watch in every area.

Don't you think it's odd that only you and perhaps a handful of others are enamored with the Gear watches? Does it strike you as odd that the Apple Watch continually outsells the Gear lineup? I know it bothers you, that's for sure.

No it doesn't. They're simply buying the watch to go with their phones, which they should. It's an inferior product, and I'm no longer willing to use it and the iPhone vs the Note and gear as my daily drivers. You're a fanboy, that thinks inside the little Apple box, I'm not. I had the gear s, gear s2, and Apple Watch, and the Apple Watch was the weakest, in battery life, interface, and features, it was also slow as molasses. Sure it has more apps, but all the ones I need are in galaxy apps. Face it dude, Apple is selling you a second rate product, and I'm no longer willing to spend my money on it.

You keep evading the facts; not even hardcore Samsung/android lovers want the Gear lineup. Why? Please answer that.

I'm not concerned with them, I want it. That's all that matters. You're evading the facts. Why is the Apple Watch not a standalone device? Why no LTE? Why no new design? Why no better UI?

LTE would require the Apple Watch to be too thick, but LTE will be available as soon as Apple solves that issue. The UI is fine, many people have no problem with it and enjoy it. I'm glad you want a Gear watch, and I hope you buy one, or more.

Says who? Lol You do know that the Gear S2 was the best selling smartwatch when it was released? Beating your beloved Apple Watch at sales? And that it is the best selling smartwatch for android phones to date?

77, that's funny, that's cool you use both platforms, everyone use what they like. I use iOS because of the eco system. iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV, Apple Watch, they all work together. So what?, Samsung still copies and Samsung has you deluded about innovation. You parrot just the tech bloggers say. A rotating bezel? Innovative? Give me a break, it is different that's all. That's fine you like LTE, tell me about battery life going LTE full time. The Apple Watch is a extension of iPhone and that's what Apple intended. Apple will come with LTE when they get the battery life they expect. Samsung just add features to say they were first and as a result it is a gimmick. You confuse innovation with gimmickry.....

"Samsung just add features to say they were first and as a result it is a gimmick. You confuse innovation with gimmickry....." The irony is rich in your statement lol

Stop it bro, I hear you're the biggest Apple fanboy on PA. ;) I hear you own every Apple product available, and helped Johnny Ive design the I-Pen for the iPhone 12.

Nobody, I repeat, nobody has done more copying in the smartphone/smartwatch industry the last 4 years than Apple.

Truth, and I'm actually glad they did. They needed to add the features, I wish they'd copy Samsungs multitasking for the iPhone, like they did with the iPad.

Chronographs and diver watches have had rotating bezels for years.....

It's a fundamental design flaw. Samsung is too ambitious to pack it all in. Especially with edge screen which cuts battery space even more. People should not be swayed by form aspect over function which make edge variant popular in the first place.

What's missing is a tech expert in the house. Does anyone know where a tech expert is?

Had mine replaced 3 days ago, definitely performing better than the previous unit! :) So how many "many customers" complaint about this? (Not complain, please spell check your article Lol. ) And where exactly is this "report" from? Lol And most of all why did you recycle this post which was up few hours ago?
