i see some reviews about the note edge, edge is the main focus, the apps, recent apps, contacts and stuff are in the edge but you dont get the edge when you open the apps so if you open an app it turns black on the edge so its not like s7 edge when you see the edge it curve. its that true( srry for my bad english)

Sometimes it goes over 2.gb which is awful lot. I wonder should i do factory reset as i havent done one since updating to 5.1.1. Would that help the high ram usage? Im worried just incase i run out of ram lol. But i dont notice any lags. Strange?

But as one or 2 apps are running , the ram increases a lot..But what i observed after 1 month on MM is that the apps run smoothly and one day i had upto 12 apps running in background and dint find a single lag..the transitions are pretty smooth..So, im least bothered what the smart manager displays on the Ram section.Hope its helpful for you.

It goes up and down. But goes no lower than 1.58gb. So ram isnt as high on MM for you? When i ask on sam live chat about high ram usage they said thats good as it opens apps quicker and makes performance better?? Is this true?

And the animation is also very nice and ram management is also good.Other features like Screen off memo,S pen features and new S note they are cool which you may have observed on some youtube videos..
Finally, i would like to say that MM has made my note edge brand new.
Just keep checking the s/w update every now and then which i was doing and received on 17th April.And immediately after the update don't forget to install "Good Lock " app from samsung which makes the update even more new on your device.

Since note series came out i bought note 1. Went straight to note 3 and then last december note edge. I know some ppl do change phone every two yrs. Note 5 i didnt like because no sd card or non removable battery. There is supposed to be note edge 2 coming out i was reading somewhere. But ive note 3 on 5.0 and have had no problems at all with it. Some other users do. But i think its still good 2rs on this march. So i dont have a problem with it on 5.0. But if a phone is still in good condion looks wise and performing good i wont stop using it. But note edge has better specs compared to note 3. So i keep my note 3 as backup. My old note 1 is lying in a drawer. Not a scratch on it and running pretty good for the age of it. Altho not as good as note 3 and note edge. Its stuck on 4.1.2 lol.

yvenugopal, 07 May 2016Can you pls confirm whether it would be receiving android N update as well..I honestly dont know to tell you the truth. But if i can get on sam live chat i would ask them. Sometimes its not working. I have to end up sending email to them. Takes 3 days to receive word back from samsung.

Samsung have already did update from v4 to v5 to v6 which is good enough.
Who knows that Samsung have plan for Note Edge 2 which would replace Note Edge.
There is a need to understand on what & how software update could improved on 'ancient' electronic components.
For example, for Note 3, the v4.3 (original) can be upgradable to v5.0. There is no mentioned on Note 3 to update to v6.
So Note Edge able to update to v6 is the best and final version, maybe.
This do not means that after >2 years you cannot use the phone.
Even some are still using Note 2 after >4 years and no update to v5.
There is a limit.
