Top 10 Guest-Rated Dubai Hotels To Try

According to the Dubai Corporation for Tourism & Commerce Marketing, Dubai currently has over 612 hotels offering more than 85,000 rooms. The Dubai government is hell-bent on monitoring those Dubai hotels very closely to guarantee they offer the best services possible in their class.

Samsung Gear S2 Classic Smartwatch Review

Samsung Middle East sent me their Samsung Gear S2 Classic Smart Watch for review. They chose for me the brown, leather strap version (aka Classic). I took out the smartwatch from the box, charged it with the wireless charger included. Took 2+ hours for a full charge. I connected it to my  Samsung Galaxy Note 5 via Bluetooth. The connection was established smoothly, although I had to install / update the Gear Manager on my phone which took ~10-15 minutes.

Tip: when I tried to connect the Gear S2 to another mobile phone, I failed miserably. I had to ‘factory-reset’ the Gear S2 before I could connect it to another phone.

Armed with my Samsung mobile phone, I used to suffer with the inaccurate navigation of the touch screen, the lack of proper copy / paste functions, and most of all the lack of the ability to use the mouse!
