Samsung Gear S3 Frontier LTE & Samsung Pay will NOT work in the UK.

I just had a chat with Samsung regarding the new Samsung Gear S3 Frontier smartwatch that is supposedly available from today in the UK.

Before anyone in the UK rushes out and buys one, take note of these three important facts that Samsung failed to mention in their Gear S3 launch and advertising videos.

  2. Samsung PAY will not work in the UK.

Now it seems some FOOL at United Biscuits or Jacobs, has decided to take a winning formula and turn it into a disaster, by squeezing 4 measly biscuits into a small ‘TUC to GO’ bag (19g).
