Samsung Gear S3 users reporting poor battery life post Tizen 3.0 update

Himanshu, 02 December 2017

Just a few weeks ago, the Samsung Gear S3 started receiving Tizen 3.0 through a Value Pack update. The update brought along plenty of new features, but if a recent report is to be believed, it has introduced battery issues as well.

The report says several users of the smartwatch are complaining of poor battery life after the update.

Officially, Samsung hasn't said anything on the matter yet. So it's difficult to say how widespread the problem is. However, it does look like not everybody is seeing the same behavior.

There have also been complaints about an issue that prevents users from using customized watchfaces on their watch. Well, it's recommended that you factory reset your wearable post the Tizen 3.0 update to resolve the problem.
