    Does anyone have the S3. I looked at one today and was blown away with the quality, usability, and general feel. I thought it made my Apple Watch feel like a toy.

    Any one have one? What's the OS like? Any deal breakers?

    Did you not say that you were "blown away with the quality, usability and general feel" of the S3? With that in mind, why don't you tell us what the OS is like. I mean, you did mention "usability"........Anyway, I don't have one and I haven't played with one, but hopefully those who do and have will offer their thoughts soon. Take care.

    This seems like something you'd want to check out at a Samsung-centric site.

    I have, I just wanted any ones opinion that was primarily Apple. I really like the look and feel. But not having played with the OS for any length of time I was wondering if there were any big negatives. But anyway I might look at getting one for the "going out" watch.

    What OS are you referring to?

    I have very limited experience with Tizen. Sorry. You may want to ask about Tizen in a Samsung forum, since Samsung and Intel have done most of the work developing it.

    While the Tizen OS is nice and stable don't expect a lot of apps. It's really weak in that area, there are a number of watch faces available but many of those are, shall we say, not the best.

    I have the S3 Classic. When I had the AW... I primarily used it for notifications and taking/making a call or answer a text quick.

    I just dont see a smartwatch as a viable app platform. The experience is....... underwhelming. IMO.

    For me... the S3 is perfect, its fast, easy to use (the rotating bezel is a masterpiece). I would ofter get confused when using the AW. Which button do I push, which one do I hold down? for what? etc etc.

    And finally...... ITS ROUND... like a watch should be.

    The watch faces look astonishingly real, add the always on display, many people didnt know I was wearing a smartwatch.

    In my circumstances... the S3 is a winner.

    So far so good using it on my 7Plus.

    I use a lg g watch and all I can get is notifications from calls texts and games. Is the S3 the same? No way to reply or anything?

    Correct. No way to reply. Which works for me because with the work I do, all I want is to see the notification and read what it contains. I'll respond from my phone after I'm done with my customer.

    Not true. You can reply to text notifications easily when they first come in (at least I can on my S2). There is a set of pre-written short replies, or you can add your own to the list. Scoll to the bottom of the notification to see the list, tap on one to use it as the reply. You can also scribble on the watch face to create a reponse. It converts your scribble into actual text characters.

    This is what I get on my S3. Only gives me the option to clear the notification.

    Have you tried tapping the text message itself? See the three vertical dots on the right? You should be able to replay to and send from the S3.

    Oh yeah I know I can do it when it's connected to the network. It will send and receive texts from the watch's number. I believe the OP wanted to know if you could send and respond while connected to the iPhone and have it show the phones number instead of the watch.

    All I know about the S3 Frontier is that when the S8+ is available to purchase I'm getting the phone and the S3.

    There are definitely limitations when a Gear S3 is paired to an iOS device (assuming we're talking about the non-LTE version of the S3). Apple just doesn't open up their notification system that much. Replying to messages and other forms of interaction are limited.



    Note that if you have an LTE-equipped Gear S3, you will have more features like being able to reply easily to messages, since the watch itself handles all of that. It doesn't need to communicate with the phone to do so in this case.

    I went ahead and bought the S3 Frontier to use with my 7+ until the Samsung S8+ is available. It definitely doesn't work as well with an iPhone as my Apple Watches but it works we'll enough. The difference between the S3 and the AW is pretty substantial. The S3 makes the AW seem like a child's toy. The Samsung feels solid and heavy. The build quality and screen are far superior to the Apple. Now I just need that S8+!!!

    I have the S3 Classic and I must say that the quality is not up to the standard of the Apple Watch. Roughly 50% of the case is plastic, so how can it be?
    Also, the round display is a bad idea for media consumption.
    Mines been sat in a draw since January. A waste of £350!
