Yeah its terrible annoying. its not just you. Its the retarded Samsung who doesnt seem to know how to make software. Things like these are the reasons why tizen isnt becoming a success. And it seems like samsung doesnt give a **** about it either because i allready mentioned this on every channel they got. And only thing they reply is: its a shame that you feel this way, we hope you enjoy the rest of the features on the gear s3.
So it seems we are stuck with the fact that when someone sends you a message on whatsapp followed by a smilie you will Always need to pick up your Phone to see what the message was. Because there is no freaking way of knowing what that was looking at the gear.
I really wonder what the quality testing team of samsung was saying/thinking when it happened to them on the gear s3... they must have thought "Ahh well.... only a billion people use whatsapp nowadays, who cares that it doesnt work like it should!"
i guess i will end up using my old moto360 soon if this isnt fixed. the notification system on the gear s3 is a mess and samsung isnt planning to get it fixed.
Just got an update of tizen today with a fix... guess what they were fixing the world clock with 2 countries i have never even heared of LMFAO. Thats what they are fixing atm.. stuff no one uses!
