    I'm interesting to buy the new gear s3 frontier Bluetooth version and I have question:
    I'm using OnePlus 3 and I saw that this phone is not on the list of supported phones Samsung posted, but online people said that the gear s2 working fine with the OnePlus 3, if making calls and messages is available in the gear s3 can I do this with my OnePlus 3 ?
    And if yes what is the limitations with the oneplus and the gear s3?

    Thanks a lot :)

    I got the Samsung gear s3 frontier on launch everything works fine but Samsung pay still needs a Samsung phone since it needs the Samsung pay app to be installed on the phone in order for the gear s3 to to able to use samsung pay

    I got my Gear S3 yesterday and have tried to use the MST Samsung pay 3 times and haven't been successful. Have you had any issues with this? I haven't tried NFC yet.

    My device also won't wake up with motion anymore. I'm not sure if there is a setting that could control this or something is going on with the watch. I might be heading in to get a replacement.

    Edit: Factory Reset fixed this issue

    I tried using it at Taco Bell and a gas station (I now know this isn't supposed to work). I got it to work with MST today, but I had to move my watch a bunch around the card reader. I wouldn't think this is necessary based on what I've found. Sounds like you should just be able to hold closely without moving it around.

    Glad you got it work. I've used it at Target, King Soopers (Kroger), Michaels. Various other places.

    Thanks! I think it's been working well since the factory reset. I haven't really been able to test the mst, just NFC. Overall I'm really enjoying the watch.

    I have an Oneplus3 with Gear S3. Everything works as it should. Only S Voice could not write a SMS "Service not available". SMS in contacts work great. This is a know problem with some SMS apps on Android devices.

    Very nice watch so far :)

    Same here with trying to use S Voice for SMS. You need a Samsung Phone to use S Voice for SMS, but SMS by typing on watch works fine.

    I've also used Samsung Pay with my OP3 to pay at Home Depot self checkout pretty flawlessly.

    I bought the the Samsung Gear S3 Classic to use it with my OP3. Most of the functions are there, but there are a couple of issues to which Samsung stated that has nothing to do with them. First of all the email app & message icons are not available, but the functionality is, meaning you still receive notifications & can reply. The integrated music app is not working but if you use Google music it does. Also if you get notified on Whatsapp you can only see the last notification line and not all of them, but this can be fixed with a very cheap app. For me the email thing is a huge downside since I use it for work and I was not able to find any fix for it after a few days of searching and talking with Samsung reps. It seems that Android wear will be made available via root at some point. So far is a very good device but this lack of global integration is very unpleasent. Connected also with a Samsung device and all of the functionality was there.
