On Friday I was at a social function. I was wearing my Gear S and had on me a Note 4, iPhone 6 Plus and BlackBerry Curve.
Nobody wanted to see the blackberry. The Gear S reaction was really marmite. It was either referred to as a prison tag or I want one. There was no middle ground. There wasn’t much interest in the iPhone 6 Plus mainly as everyone seemed to know what it was and that it was just another iPhone. However, people did comment that it was huge. Really huge.
Now to the Note 4. This caused the same reaction by everyone who agreed the screen was superb. We were looking at photos and again I was informed I had an unfair advantage as everything looked better on my screen. People were dazzled by the specs on the Note 4.
Now I did demonstrate trying to give some balance that the iPhone was really easy to use but again there wasn’t much interest.
When I explained how the Gear S was also a phone, there was disbelief in an amazed way from my table of people.
So there you have it.
IPhone 6 Plus – just another iPhone.
Samsung Note 4 – that fabulous screen
Samsung Gear S – Prison escapee or droolworthy ☺
