Grey1213, 08 Aug 2016Anyone with an edge willing to share how friendly it is towards cases and protective screens? ... moreAs long as you get compatible cases you'll be totally fine. I never had an issue with my s6 edge+. Screen protector wise you'll be best going and getting one professionally put on (carphone warehouse did mine), costs about £25, however had a 10 year guarantee so replacements were free, and they actually protect the phone if dropped ect, with a screen like that which is unbelievably expensive to fix it's not worth cutting corners.
Gimmick like 3D TV a few years ago. Adds nothing except driving up the price. In the case of curved screen, actually make the screen smaller and more glare glore. I checked out one personally at T-Mobile store and even at full brightness I can see the 2 bars of reflection running down the side about 2mm from edge of screen.
More reason to avoid Samsung flagship these days. Their midrange phones are better.
The curved screen just makes it easier to break from my perspective. Not a fan.

Lmao RIP Samsung.
Can you hear that? That's Huawei right up your behinds ready to take number 2 spot ;)
Anonymous, 08 Aug 2016Its harder to find a screen protector (presumably glass) for the standard s7 than the edge. Th... moreSame with my note 5 causing halo effect and those sides attract pocket lint and make the edges look ugly.
Hey changes back to plastic or metal too, glass back is very shit for hold
Grey1213, 08 Aug 2016Anyone with an edge willing to share how friendly it is towards cases and protective screens? ... moreI have the 7 edge since March when it went on market and never used a bumper nor screen protector. but if you do put on it such protective accessories, it will also help you against "accidental touches" which happen all the time on the edges - whatever you do :). they still need to refine the touch rejection algorithms further although it is a lot better now (it was updated few days after it went on market)
I have been using the Note 7 for the last week and the edges are much improved from the S7 Edge. Alot of people complain about the glare but there isn't much important detail on the edges when your watching a movie for instance.
Also I don't think they will do away with the flat screen. The quote says the edge will be the identity of the s series. To me that means they would only advertise the edge version, not that they won't sell the flat version at all.
Anyone with an edge willing to share how friendly it is towards cases and protective screens? That's the main thing for me along with price, but I'm sure the price of edge will go down of they do this sort of thing.
haydeezz, 08 Aug 2016from my point of view.. the edge looks great.. we dont need functionality for it.. its just wh... moreI agree but the price and fragility and reflections and annoyance are not worth it
lol cause samsung phone is hard to identity whether it is new or old model hahaha
from my point of view.. the edge looks great.. we dont need functionality for it.. its just when i use the phone at look at it .. its just looks awesome.. its more "cosmetic" things.. and i can say its way better then any flat display ..go good job in there :)
The only issue with the curved-screen phones is the lack of lateral grip. The lateral edge is so narrow, that there is almost no lateral grip when used without a case. But as long as Apple continues to pay no attention to lateral grip for their iPhones, Samsung won't do it either :)
