Samsung Galaxy Note Edge review

 

A proof of concept rather than a fully fledged device

Innovative curved display ; Excellent QHD screen ; Full of features

S Pen still questionable ; Only a day of battery life ; Struggles with high performance

Ratings in depth The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is a phone that's got me hot under the collar. It's another evolutionary step forward in the way we're going to be using phones, right?

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge review: The edge of excellence - Pocket-lint

 

-

A showcase of what’s possible in phone design, edge screen operation far more useful/interesting than anticipated, great screen, powerful, decent camera, multi-tasking via multi-window and S Pen stylus included

Battery not as good as Note 4, button arrangement shortcomings, a fingerprint magnet, rear plastic build quality, some multi-tasking shortcomings, third-party edge panel apps to be proven, expensive

The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is certainly a spectacle that will turn heads, and while we still can't see it taking off as the next big thing in terms of volume sales, it's a mighty fine modification of the Galaxy Note 4. We thought the Edge would be...

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge vs iPhone 6 Plus comparison review

 

The Galaxy Note Edge broke the mould with the introduction of its edge display, enabling users to interact with their smartphones in a new and interesting way. But how does it compare to Apple's first phablet, the iPhone 6 Plus? Both have similar...

Samsung's Galaxy Note Edge certainly brings something new and unique to the table. The Edge is a great addition to the Note series and the camera captures fantastically detailed photos. While the graphic performance may not be as great as the iPhone 6...

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge review

 

At IFA 2014 Samsung introduced, alongside the expected Galaxy Note 4, the Galaxy Note Edge - a smartphone which wasn't leaked and offers a new take on the curved screen. Here's our Samsung Galaxy Note Edge full in-depth review. Also see 41 best...

The Galaxy Note Edge is one of the most interesting smartphones around and while the edge screen is genuinely useful at times, it also remains a slight gimmick. Hardware is top notch and although we dislike the faux leather, build quality is good. The...

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge review

 

It's expensive and the curved screen adds nothing to the phone's overall utility, but the Galaxy Note Edge is still a quick and decent phone

Samsung Galaxy Edge

 

Samsung's curved phone is a glimpse of the future, not the here and now.

Still has the same gorgeous screen as the Note 4 ; Strong all-round camera performance ; Great for gaming

Curved screen is not very useful ; Battery life is less than Note 4 ; Very expensive SIM-free

So, what happens when you add an extra curved screen to an otherwise great one? Well, aside from working independently from the main display from a software point of a view, not a great deal. There's no discernible difference between the two.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge review

 

Samsung's edgy new design makes curves work in new and interesting ways

Curve has genuine value ; Good camera ; Feature-packed and powerful

Very expensive ; Battery life isn't great ; A very wide mobile

Distinctive but not crazy, the Note Edge is next-gen design that works - with caveats

The main reason to buy the Galaxy Note Edge over the Galaxy Note 4 is that curved screen on the side which we actually think it useful rather than a gimmick. However we don't know how much extra this will add to the price and we fear this will be one...

We get up close and personal with the Note 4's curvy-screened brother
