The Samsung Gear S3 is a great smartwatch. Or at least it was when it launched.
When we first got our hands on the Samsung Gear S3 in 2016, we were delighted by the device’s multi-day battery life. Unfortunately, however, following a handful of firmware updates from Samsung, something happened and many Gear S3 owners began complaining about unusually fast battery drain. This was addressed in a revised version of the firmware that allegedly caused the issue to begin with and battery life was further improved with another update back in April of this year.
