Re: Gear S3 Frontier Tizen 3.0 Battery Drain

I guess a "#metoo" revolution will be the only action that Samsung will respond to. It has been months since the entire community reported this battery drain situation and they did nothing about it. Forget about the "battery improvement" update as that, as we all know, did nothing, as well.

Re: Gear S3 Frontier Tizen 3.0 Battery Drain

After about two weeks I got my S3 Frontier back from service today. The service repair statement says that they replaced the Incell battery pack. However they never sent back my watch band. Seriously Samsung???? Just called service and they said they will mail me one in about 3 days. So I wish I could say if they fixed the **bleep** batter issue or not but will now have to wait until I can wear the thing.

The only thing that i noticed that help is that when the battery consumtion increased , if i will tuen of and on the watch the battery consumption will stop

Very bad, very bad behavior

Re: Gear S3 Frontier Tizen 3.0 Battery Drain

I have the same problem, only I bought a used S3 Frontier. Warranty was 1 week expired. I was losing 25% battery per hour. So watch would die in approx 4 hours. That's on a full charge.

Took it in to Samsung Customer Repair and asked for a battery replacement. Sales said it would only last a little over a day. That's still better than 4 hours, so I went ahead with the replacement. I said when I pick it up in 2 days, it better last a full day. If not, I asked it they could downgrade the OS to 2.0 version? He said, they won't. If this is still an issue, I will take it back and see how they will rectify?

Re: Gear S3 Frontier Tizen 3.0 Battery Drain

Is this only a problem on the Gear S3? What about the Gear Sport which also runs Tizen 3.0?
