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: Innovation, experiment or gimmick?

 

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...

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

Is the Note Edge a gimmick? It's hard to say, but I don't think the curved display is a bad thing. The best part is that even without the edge, you've still got, for all intents and purposes, a Galaxy Note 4, with a stylus, power, long battery life and...

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: Breaking the mold and the bank in the quest for curve

 

What's it really like using the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge's funky curved screen? Read CNET's full, rated review to find out.

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.

In Samsung's vision of the electronics future, curved is the new flat. Since 2013, the Korean conglomerate unveiled curved wearables , TVs and even a smartphone, the Galaxy Round . (Rival LG has two too .) Here, the Galaxy Note Edge -- first released...

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

 

I would very much like a flexible smartphone that I could scrunch up like paper and stuff into a pocket. I don't quite know why I would like that, but it feels like something that the future should...

Astonishing display ; Head-turning form factor ; Basically a Galaxy Note 4

Battery life decent, but a step down from the Note 4 ; Not many apps that make use of the screen ; Samsung's software is still too overbearing

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge

 

Samsung builds some of the best smartphone cameras in the market. The Galaxy Note Edge looks to continue this trend with a 16MP rear-facing camera with Smart Optical Image Stabilizer, and a 3.7MP front-facing camera with an f/1.9 aperture and a 90-120...

I can tell that smartphone innovation is stalling based on the reactions friends and family have to what I'm reviewing. "I guess the screen is nice," a buddy told me about the Note 4." "That slo-mo video is pretty neat," my aunt said about the iPhone 6...
