    did I understand that the earbuds do not have a microphone for calls? You use the one on the phone itself?

                    for me, this is where wireless earbuds get acceptable. these earbuds aren't perfect, but they're good enough to make me interested in wireless earbuds now

                                pardon my stupidity but why would you need storage on an earbud? is it to automatically reconnect to last paired device?

                                  The gear iconx had 4GB of internal storage so you could download music onto them, and listen to music without your phone, but these made them more expensive, so samsung dropped the storage.

                                The Icon X 2018 actually work with any phone, minor mistake there.

                                  I liked the video just because it was pointed out how there was an exterior LED light. You'd be surprised how many reviews don't even acknowledge that or bring it up when it's kind of an important feature.

If you want to buy it now, and the mic quality is stopping you from, go ahead and buy, I'm guessing there was a software update that fixed it cause I;m telling you that problem is non-existent to me.

One of them fell out during a tubing trip and I was walking down the escalator to find it. My friends saw me and asked what happened, and I told them. All they had to say was “you know if they were AirPods they wouldn’t have fallen out”.

                                                                                      I would just like to say, airpods for $150 are that and cost $200(I think) for the wireless charging case. The galaxy buds are $130, and including wireless charging case.
