Pairing Your Life With Rhythm  

The Samsung Galaxy Buds perfectly pairs with any type of situations for your convenience.

Design 4.5/5

Simply open the Galaxy Buds case near your phone or tablet to pair effortlessly. Make sure the earbuds are placed correctly as per labelled into the case for long lasting buds and for it to charge. As for the overall design, it looks attractive with a slick all-black design comprising two earbuds and a charging case. The case is easy to just slip them into your pocket and go making it a luxurious item but with an affordable price.
Features 5/5

The sound that moves you is now made to move with you. With sound by AKG, Samsung Galaxy Buds provide a balanced and natural sound with superb dynamic range and exceptional accuracy, which means every word and note you listen to sound stellar.  

It is designed to fit comfortably in your ears, it comes with an adjustable ear tip and wingtip sizes from the box. Whether you’re running or dancing to your favourite tunes, you’re ensured the best possible fit. Besides that, thanks to the IPX2 splash-resistant technology, the Galaxy Buds can handle splashes, a little sweat and even the accidental spill.

The best part about this beauty from Samsung product is that you get up to 13 hours of battery life when you are on the go with a case that doubles as a wireless charger for your wireless earbuds. One full charge provides up to six hours of playtime and the charging case provides up to an additional seven hours. A quick 15-minute charge in the case will get you up to 1.7 hours of play time. How amazing is that? The fact that you can charge it up once you’ve done listening to music even if the battery isn’t low. This way you constantly are connected to music no matter where you are.

Performance 4.5/5

You can easily switch tracks, take a call or turn up the volume with a touch. Music would automatically pause when you remove your Galaxy Buds and resumes with a tap when you play them back in your ears. Although they quite touch sensitive and you would accidentally have changed the song without realising it but it still remains a good purchase. So be careful when you’re pressing onto the earbuds.

The Galaxy Buds pair with both Android and iOS compatible smartphones via Bluetooth connection. Once the window pops up for pairing, you’re pretty much good to go and enjoy the buds.
I started out by listening to Led Zeppelin’s “Rock and Roll” song and I was impressed at the fact that you can listen to the drums banging and electric guitar being played so clearly, as though you are at their concert. However, the sound isn’t too bassful as I want it to be but with the Ambient Aware mode, you can control how much surrounding noise you let in. Galaxy Buds recognize your surroundings, switching between inner and outer mics to keep unnecessary noise out of your conversation. With Quick Ambient Mode, you can listen in on street traffic, and other surrounding noises. Overall for the sound quality, you may not have the same power or noise isolation as other noise cancellation headphones but for wireless buds, it has certainly exceeded our expectations.

You could power up when the watch keeps track of your daily activities for over 45 hours on a single charge. It features innovative Wireless Power Share to ensure you’re powered up and ready to go in no time.


It keeps you connected no matter if it’s day or night. It lets you send customizable replies using speech-to-text, emoticons while your phone is charging on your nightstand. Plus, if you’ve not been walking for quite some time, or no movement while wearing the watch, it’ll vibrate and alert you to start moving or do 5 sets of torso movement. It will also guide you on what you can do to stretch after having no movement. I love the fact that you have compliments in the Galaxy Watch after certain movements and it will encourage you to do more. 

A device that watches over you overnight too as it tracks your four stages of sleep so you can be on your way to a full night’s worth of rest. Waking up with a clear rundown of just how deeply you spent the hours of sleep you had.
