Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 review

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 review : The culmination of years of hopes, cries, and corporate cooperation was the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4, as Google and Samsung finally joined together to provide us the fantastic Android wristwatch that Android users deserved. The antiquated Qualcomm chipsets of its rivals were no match for the Exynos chipset inside. It combined the Google services and apps that were missing from prior Tizen-based Galaxy Watch models with Samsung’s enhanced hardware and software.

By no means was it a flawless smartwatch; for one thing, it frequently experienced battery issues, and for a while, third-party watches and applications had problems integrating with Samsung’s health sensors because this was the first watch to use the newly unified Wear OS 3. For the most of the year, Google Assistant on the Watch 4 was kept in the dark, and for weeks at a time, Google Pay would just stop operating. (Admittedly, Google was purple for half of the difficulties, but it was still quite frustrating.)

The new Galaxy Watch 5 didn’t need to reinvent the wheel to retain its crown; it only needed to enhance an already superior experience now that the services are available and the first issues have been fixed. However, given that the battery life was one of just three key changes to the Galaxy Watch 5, Samsung was keen to highlight it when the device was unveiled. With the Galaxy Watch 5, Samsung says that a single charge would last up to 50 hours. While it piqued my curiosity, the watch itself has left me hungry despite being superior to the Watch 4 in a number of ways.
