Hi all.
Wondering if anyone can give me a bit of advice on apple airpod gen2.

My daughter wants some, as the in ear Samsung and other brands don't stay in her ears.
She has older apple earbuds but they are wired.

SO.

How compatible are the airpod gen2 with Samsung phones? I have read that they work, but are temperamental. I would like to know if that's true or not before forking out $ and then finding she doesn't use them if too difficult.

Much appreciated and thanks for any and all advice.
