Samsung Gear S3 new update to fix the battery bug

The most anticipated Tizen 3.0 update for Samsung’s Gear S3 made an appearance a month before, only to stir up discontent among users. The first glance seemed all fancy with the new looks and features, but the battery-life turned out to be detrimental after the update. Users have noticed and reported the unusually abysmal rates of battery draining.

However, clients who are devastated from the battery-related issues following Tizen 3.0 update can now be relieved. Samsung has introduced a latest firmware update to seal the fissures of 3.0 update and bring back the earlier battery-life that lasted approximately two to three days. The patch takes 21 MB, and is expected to fix the battery bug, rather than providing fresh exciting features.
