    hi ..

    i just got (week ago) the Samsung Galaxy Buds.. black: https://www.samsung.com/us/mobile/audio/galaxy-buds/
    to replace the LG Tone Platinum : https://www.lg.com/us/bluetooth-headsets-headphones/lg-HBS-1120-Black-tone

    loved my LG Tones.. my 3rd.
    I keep breaking them.. due to my active life and workouts.
    they sound great and easy to use ..
    they just hang on my neck till needed -
    answer calls - pull out headphone and put in ear
    biggest issue is that they do not handle workouts well
    when doing things in a horizontal position: sit-ups .. they slide back on the neck
    the wires get caught in clothings when i move around
    mic can be covered by clothing.
    sweat causes issues
    cant use while charging... sucks during a workout.

    Galaxy Buds
    i like them.. they sound great
    wireless charging ... is great. I can use the buds.. while the base is charging.
    convenient to just drop on wireless charger on my work-desk.
    they are rated to handle light water issues. sweaty workouts.
    small issue..when you are wiping your face with a towel
    it bumps the buds - touch pads. pausing play.
    BIGGEST issue: answering calls... when buds are NOT in your ear.
    Not convenient when the buds are in the case.
    fish the case out of your pocket or go to it's location (desk)
    open and put the buds in your ear.. without bumping the touch pads
    then double tap the pads..
    if the phone has rang several times.. i feel there is not enough time to use the buds.

    case is small... but not small enough.
    i would like it as small and slim as the apple airpods. they are NOT noticeable in my pocket.
    in the summer.. when i wear shorts... one more thing i will need to carry in pocket.
    phone, wallet, keys, Buds

    what are your thoughts?
    i have 1 more week .. to return them.
    leaning towards keeping them. but miss the around the neck LG.

    the LG.. when i got it.. i would get several days from 1 charge... 10hrs of actual use.
    but i used it a lot.. and had to charge it more.
    as of last week... i had to charge it once a day... with 3-4 hrs of use.

    the buds..
    the earbuds have 6hrs.. and the base would give another 6hrs.
    but i am not really keeping records of this yet.
    but it feels like i am getting around that.

    taking the buds out of the case.. is not that easy.. just not good solid grip.
    have drop it several times this weekend.. getting them out of the case.

    this.. would be a huge issue in crowded or dark places.
