Got my Huawei Wear Watch a couple days ago, and I was sad to see that pretty much none of my apps used the speaker on the watch for any type of notification. Feel the Wear app allowed me a custom list of apps on which I got to choose the sound and vibration setting for each app. I'm a huge fan of this app, and recommend it to anyone who's in the same boat as me.
Now also SOUND! Volume is linked to the watch's alarm sound volume.Weak vib...

Lol I thought about preordering that as well lol. Instead I ordered the gold op3. I put my Nexus 6p down and have been using the op3. To my surprise I like the op3.

My Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (Exynos 8 Octa) scored 1929 in the 3DMark Sling Shot using ES 3.1 Android benchmark test.

Test your device and see how it stacks up against a stock Galaxy S7 Edge.

Are you i-curious like me?
No matter how faithful you try to be, your love is divided between iOS and Android?

Get iOS Control Center slide out widget on your Android, and tweak it to your heart's desire. I also posted a swipe to go back gesture like iOS a couple days ago for more goodies.

Themes are one of the things I missed the most when I was on iPhone. This is what I got going on right now on my Galaxy s7 edge.

+Martin Guay​, my theme expert may appreciate this.

With every great phone, needs a great watch.
I'm giving the Galaxy Gear S2 a spin with the Galaxy S7 Edge.
I've only had it for a few hours, but so far it seems pretty solid.

Yes I do. Build quality is awesome and it does everything I need. I don't use voice all the time, it's not the same as OK google at all. I wanted a good keyboard because of noise and the Gear has one.

I use My Notes for notes and lists and FIDMe for my loyalty cards. l also use HERE maps for offline with watch Nav. Worked great when I rented a car with no GPS. Really looking forward to SamsungPay as it will work with TD. 

My only want is to find welcome to night vale so I can pretend it's music and move to gear. Walk with no phone, just earphones.

I've been doing a Samsung vs Google apps on my Galaxy S7 edge, and I'm surprised of my findings in the browser category. Normally Google produces amazing apps, however they fall incredibly short in performance area when it comes to web browsers.

In all the websites I've tested, Google Chrome took nearly 4 times as long the fully load a page than the slim stock Samsung browser. Granted Google Chrome offers more features, but has clearly gotten bloated and heavy over its lifetime.

Coming from iPhone, I really missed my swipe to go back gesture. Thanks to this free app, I once again have that ability, amongst many other options.

+Nicolas Déry Yeah, I don't like that the back button is on the right either, as i hold my phone in my left hand, and cannot go back with one harded use. That's where my swipe to go back is very handy.

I prefer hardware buttons over software, mainly because I want 100% screen usage, not a void space for buttons, making my screen appear to be smaller.

I kinda like the new game center on the Galaxy s7 edge. Not only does it group all my games into its own game folder, but has some very useful features as well.

Not impressed with this service. Over charged me, lied to me on my chosen day I wanted my day to arrive, but only told me after I paid, and refused reimbursement of my over payment. I requested my item to be professionally wrapped, but they couldn't because her Dad wasn't there... Not sure what kinda shotty business they got running here, but I for one won't be going there again.
