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.

If you are considering buying a new television soon, then you are in good company. Thousands of millions of TV purchases are made every year, yet shopping for a new set can be cumbersome, indeed. It doesn’t have to be that though. Here, I’ll give you the main features to look for when shopping for a Ultra High Definition/ 4K TV set. Simply put, 4K UHD TV sets are the televisions of the future. The screens have about 4 thousand pixels (exactly (3840—2160 pixels or 8.29 megapixels, which is four times as many pixels as the full HF or 1920×1080 pixels), which means that the images displayed are more crisper than ever.
