Samsung Galaxy Note Edge Smartphone Review

 

Lateral thinking. Are there still any real innovations in smartphones? Samsung surprises the consumer with the Samsung Galaxy Edge and its curved screen that arches around the casing's front. In this report, we will find out whether this really has any...

Great screen, Bend leads to a larger screen surface, Solid and high-quality casing, High performance, Low temperature development, Useful battery life, Stylus use possible, Extensive software, Decent cameras, Diverse communication options, Accurate GPS...

Only middling voice quality, Unfavorably placed speaker..., ...with mediocre sound, Longer load throttles graphics card, Unclear operation of the lateral screen, High power consumption

For a street price of 749 Euros (~$853), you should get quite a cool smartphone, and Samsung can in fact deliver that. The "curved" screen is perhaps not always absolutely practical, but it is definitely an eye-catcher. Actually, there is never enough...

I spent a week with the Galaxy Note Edge, and now I hate curved phablets

 

With all this talk about Samsung going full force into curved smartphones, it's time to assess what life with a curved Samsung phone is actually like.

The Note Edge may employ the same brightly colored Super AMOLED display as the Note 4, but the asymmetrical shape of the phone makes it awkward to hold up to your ear to conduct a phone call. I kept feeling like I was going to accidentally launch an...

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge Review

 

Innovative curved display; Fantastically sharp and colorful QHD screen; High-quality 16-MP camera; Improved S Pen

Edge display has crapware; Not enough edge apps yet; Pricey

The Galaxy Note Edge's curved display is an exciting innovation with loads of potential, but it will take time to maximize it.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge Review – Side-screen side eye

 

Using the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is an exercise in obsession with using the biggest and the newest in smartphone tech. This smartphone is not necessarily the most well thought out for the end user - you, and it's not necessarily the best smartphone...

This device will cost you between $399.99 and $429.99 with a two-year contract depending on the carrier you pick it up on. Since you’re not necessarily going to pick this device up on-contract – that’s the cool way to go these days – you’ll be paying a...

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge review: Stroke of genius in a black slab world

 

Samsung's latest large screen smartphone offers a unique experience that has made me more efficient. The second edge display looks great and offers more than you might think at first.

Great display ; Pico Projector

Huge ; Heavy ; Pico Projector ; Reviewer's rating

As a smartphone user who enjoys high end specifications and unique features, I have to say I am seriously considering a Samsung Galaxy Note Edge. My wife is a Samsung Galaxy S5 user and as soon as she saw the Note Edge she said she wanted one. I would...

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge review: The other side

 

Experiments are great but it takes manufacturing prowess to follow them all the way to the retail shelves. Samsung have it - no surprise there - and they pulled it off, bringing the Galaxy Note Edge to stores. Never mind that curved screen looks like a...

5.6" 16M-color QHD+ Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with curved Gorilla Glass 3 ; Curved Edge display for extra content, features ; Android OS v4.4 KitKat with TouchWiz UI ; Quad-core 2.7GHz Krait 450 CPU, Adreno 420 GPU; Qualcomm Snapdragon 805...

Edge display better suited for right-handed users ; Rear-mounted mono speaker ; The uneven gap between the metal frame and curved screen glass takes a few points away from an otherwise excellent build ; No enhanced resistance to liquids or dust ;...

We've been using the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge for a few weeks now and the Edge screen has entered our work flow - mostly for checking notifications and at-a-glance info (e.g. the S Health stats). It does work great with certain apps, like the media...

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge review:

 

Editors' note, January 29, 2015: This review was updated with comparisons to LG's new dual-curved screen phone prototype and additional impressions of using the Note Edge for several months. There are also thoughts on Android Lollipop and extended...

The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge's curved, asymmetrical shape and brand-new interface deliver a cutting-edge design that really lives up to its name.

It's wider and much pricier than the Note 4 without dramatically increasing the phone's functionality. You'll have to adapt to navigating from a second screen.

Samsung's swooshing Galaxy Note Edge is a triumph of novel design, but its high price tag and minimal extra usability make for a niche appeal.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge (T-Mobile)

 

With its curved screen, the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is an innovative, interesting, and unnecessary Android tech demo—save your money and get the Galaxy Note 4 instead.

Same fast performance and excellent camera quality as the Note 4. Unique, curved display.

Expensive. Curved screen serves no must-have purpose.

Conclusions Samsung has proven that it'll try pretty much anything. Sometimes that pushes the industry towards new and exciting frontiers, and other times it leaves onlookers scratching their heads. The Note Edge is textbook Samsung: innovative for...

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge review: Innovation, experiment or gimmick?

 

Just because you can do something, should you? Samsung thinks so. Its second experimentally screened phone taps into its hardware R&D and production

Beautiful, high-resolution curved display ; Long battery life ; Good camera ; Pretty much a Galaxy Note 4

Expensive compared to the Galaxy Note 4 ; Not enough uses for the curved edge ; Not ideal for left-handed users ; Pretty much a Galaxy Note 4

The Galaxy Note Edge is an experiment, yet it's one that's able to stand on its strengths, despite any reservations you might have about that curved display. In short, you get all the benefits of the Galaxy Note 4, but with a hardware twist to set it...
