    Hey all! Just a heads-up that comments which are knee-jerk responses to the headline, or those which aim to start a Samsung vs Apple flame war, will be deleted and their writers banned. Thanks for watching!

    We can't reply messages else it can play video etc.. but it's not an handicapt , it can pair with iOS and android but Apple Watch can only pair with iOS devices . I am using gear S3 with IPhone 6s Plus and I love it

    Unfortunately it is the same as with Android wear. My tag connected with the iPhone is just a notification gadget.

    I have the Gear S2 connected to my iPhone 6s and LOVE it. Does it do everything? No, But I don't need half the shit anyways. Gives me texts, emails and news updates. I can access and change songs with spotify at the gym while phone is tucked into backpack. And the heart rate sensor is very accurate. (compared to my Garmin Forerunner 235) I tested both watches getting my EKG done for my physical at the doctors. The Health S app is basic but does the job just fine. Plus, NFC for payments ruins half the battery anyways. So I'm glad it won't work with the iPhone. This watch does just enough for what you really need….. The apple watch is thick and very ugly.

    Thanks for your extremely helpful review. I want to get the Samsung Gear as the Apple restrictions don't really affect me as I don't use Apple/Android Pay and the message response limitations don't really bother me. However I have read on the App Store reviews of the Samsung Gear app that the watch has trouble keeping a stable connection to iOS…..That's definitely a deal breaker…..So Apple Watch it is..

    I had an Apple Watch 1 and Ok, its works just fine with my iPhone, but the Apple Watch is more expensive than the Gear S3 (here in Germany around 100 Bucks) and the Design of the Gear S3 is better in my Opinion. (I Have ordered the S3 Classic). So its Ok for me, that I cant use all features. 🙂

    I bought a Gear S3 because I was going to have a Samsung S7 as an upgrade. In the end I had an IPhone 7 and the Gear S3 does work with it but it's severely crippled.

    Has anybody tested the S Gear app on iphone more recently. Most all the reviews date back a few months. I am thinking about going back to iphone for security reasons.

    Has there been any updates to allow samsung pay with work on watch with an iPhone ? That's the main reason I want it. Love my iPhone however Apple Pay is challenged compared to Samsung pay. Also love the independence of it having its own SIM and number.

    I ended up on this video because I have the samsung gear s3 and I've been thinking about switching to iPhone because once again my phone is getting borked by all of these updates that Verizon keeps messing with from Samsung. I'm just trying to figure out if it'd be worth it switching to iPhone after getting the gear s3 at this point. I don't use samsung pay or anything (because they don't support my cards) but I do reply to messages a lot with it 😛 I just can't really make up my mind at this point

    Wish this watch was not so crippled on the iphone. In an ideal World I want a watch that can do all the fitness stuff, give me notifications (and reply capability), and the ability to make a call without my phone (even though I would probably only do that in an emergency).

    I just feel like as long as I still need my phone with me I can do without the watch part.

    In summary:
    You can't respond to notifications from text or email, and you can't buy new watch faces?

    I don't know about you guys, but as long as I can make calls or use the GPS, I'm good to go.

    Apple Watch vs Gear S3 is the reason I switched from iPhone to Galaxy. I'm tired of Apple trying to tell the market what it wants instead of listening. I wanted a watch with full function that also looked like a watch. Carrying a mini iPhone on your wrist looks awful. Samsung got it right.

    If Apple gave better support to the Gear & others I'd still have an iPhone.

    Thanks for this video. I have an iPhone 7+ and was one click away from ordering the S3 as I fell in love with it's display and stated functionality. I've had the Apple watch (series 1) for over a year and it is just too small and hard to read. This honest review made me think again about the Samsung.

    the problem is the apple watch looks like shit, and is a cluster fuck of a display from what ive seen. im willing to take a handicapped version of smart watch on my iphone than wear the apple watch. they need to get over their pretentious snooty attitudes and conform vs isolating. they are running ppl away vs attracting new customers

    Very fair review. Just like to add that if one plans to use gear s3 just as a fitness tracker and notification device (like I do), you would not miss your android phone much. I have used this beauty both on s7 edge and iPhone and still feel this is a much durable, feature packed watch than the one I used before (apple watch series 1).

    By the way, which is the watchface you have at 2:30? Would love to have it on my watch as well. 🙂

    Cheers for the good work!

    I don’t understand why don’t reviewers emphasise on the advantage of 50m water resistance on Apple Watch .. u can swim wearing that … ip68 rating on gear s3 is ok but not even close to apple watches resistance..

    Apple watch looks stupid like an ugly kids toy.. gear S3 almost looks like a watch you would choose. Of course im an iphone user and was given a beautiful S3 that works like shit with my phone.. so do i drop more money on an ugly apple watch and go deeper into the cult or drop the iphone and figure out later why i regret that decision.?

    You will not get all features pairing the gear s3 with any android device. I Tried mine with an LG G5 and you don't get email app as well as access to Samsung pay and other apps from app store. Paired with a Samsung device is the best way to use this watch

    I like apple since I have an iPad. But the way the gear s2 or s3 should work the same way. Like when its paird to an android phone. But apple is basically forcing people who want an iPhone to buy an Apple Watch. I don't think that's right. What's next they going to say if you want a case for your iPhone. You have to buy one made by apple. So dumb. If someone has an iPhone and wants a smart watch but dose not want to use an Apple watch. They should be aloud to without it being handicapped all because people dont wat the use the Apple Watch. I bet some people left iPhone for an Android phone all because they don't want to use the Apple watch but wants a different smart watch. And that only apple fault.

    hey man I have an odd situation here, hope you can give a hand. I have a Galaxy S7 but I use Apple Music instead of Spotify, I'm not planning on either go full Iphone nor switching to Spotify. So the question is the next. Does the Gear S3 has compatibility with Apple Music android app or I'm screwed?

    I'm less than a week into using the Gear 3 with iPhone 6. So far I like it. Just like with mechanical watches, looks are important. I like that the Gear 3 Frontier looks like a real watch and not some geek tech on my arm. I saw videos on what you can't do with iPhone that you can do with a Galaxy, which of those I don't care. I like it for the fitness tracking and in my job, I sit too long and I like it telling me to get off my ass and move around.

    As of 2019 I can confirm that the year S3 on iOS is still very limited. No Samsung pay, can't update correctly, can’t answer calls on the watch, and no reply method. Notifications work well, and it’s a pretty time piece

    Wait! How did you get phone calls to work with your watch? I have a ticwatch, others I know of other android watches all using Wear OS and none if us can talk on the phone using out watch! We can only start or accept the incoming call.
