The most basic thing that anybody would use is whatsapp. This thing sucks big time at it. Only the recent message from any contact would show. If somebody send me (1) hi then second message (2) how r u and thrd message (3) shall we meet, then this peice of shit will show only the latest one i.e. (3) Shall we meet. Nothing before this. Further it doesn't not support whatsapp images. If you receive images on whatsapp it won't show on the watch. This should be called dumbwatch rather than smartwatch. Wasted by 400$
hey this thing says there is a loudspeaker on this device please fix this as it is very misleading, this system does not have a loud speaker
There is no loud speaker in the gear s2 please adjust this on the specifications list!
Please confirm whether it is compatible with the E7 galaxy as it presents the characteristics Gear S2 requires 2 GB of Ram and kit kat v4.4.4
Please confirm ...

I have had this watch for just under a month now and I must say (IMO) it is one of the best for looks and function. I get lots of comments on its looks. The watch works fine and is pretty smooth. There are lots of watch faces in the gear app store, I don't care or need many apps except main watch functions and the ability to play music and go for a run without my phone. It is definitely pricey at about $430 CDN it is a steep dip in the pocket for a watch that is good for about 2 years before it is outdated and needs a battery replacement. I just don't understand why they go cheap on the internal RAM and storage, I believe it should be double for both at 1 gig and 8 gigs - The cost to Samsung would be nominal (I know it is the standard, but come on - for this price it could have been 2 and 16). Also I wish it came with a loudspeaker like the previous gen. I don't really want to answer/take calls on my wrist, however it would be nice to use an audible tone for alarms or find my watch would work better instead of vibrate only and try to find the faint buzzing sound.
P.S. GSMArena can you please update your specs on this - You have it listed with a loudspeaker, and sadly it does not come with one.
vicky, 17 Nov 2015nice watch,,,,,,
& it's very confirtable...I take a run around the block with my daughter and I used my watch to take a short video and some pictures. I don't carry a phone and I am in my gym clothes so I don't want to carry a phone or a tablet/phoneblet. Now I have to carry a big phone to do that because you removed a camera.
