I'm going to buy either the Gear Live or the LG G in the next few days. I've been leaning towards the Gear Live, but I've seen a few (as in 3 cases) of the charger snap-on mechanism breaking in short order. I'm trying to find out if this is a vocal few (they all got it at the Google IO conference so they're all bloggers, and they all don't have a proof of purchase), or if this is a problem that affects more people.
I'm even more concerned about this, because according to the user's manual..
I called Smasung support, and they said it comes with a 1 year warrantee (which contradicts the above), but it also doesn't cover physical damage. I'm guessing if lots of people had this problem and they tried to not cover it, there would be a lot of noise about it, but that may mean $200 wasted. We all know the charger design is awful and should not have been done that way (Both LG and Moto use a magnetic catch), but I doubt they will admit that.
