by Andrew Cheng · 2 weeks ago · 2 Comments · 0 views

by Andrew Cheng · 2 months ago · 1 Comment · 0 views

Samsung Gear S2 Hands On: An Interesting Alternative to Android Wear

by Andrew Cheng · 3 months ago · 1 Comment · 0 views


The Samsung Gear S2 is a far cry from its predecessor, the Gear S. It is sleeker, smaller, and most of all, doesn’t look like a small computer on your wrist.
