Default Gear 2 is awesome with S5

Till today I had been using my htc one m7 with the watch. I finally got my S5 and paired it up. I can now read full emails and not just preview, respond to text via s voice, call log, can sync all fitness, control my music as media control, access the App Store, receive all notification.

After my experience I wouldn't recommend the watch without a samsung phone.

How is your Gear 2 battery life now comparing to when you used it with M7?

Battery is still the same.. Could last about 3 days.

The killer is playing music through Bluetooth. Battery will get sucked up.

I'm not playing any music, but when I have my Gear 2 Neo connected to my M8 (just connected and doing nothing), I'm experiencing ~30% per hour battery drain.
Did you update your Gear to the latest firmware (ND8)?
