AnonD-129693, 16 Nov 2014that edge is the most useless feature in the mobile industry so far How can that be? It keeps annoying notifications out of the way and when the cam/vid is activated, that's where the controls appear. Does not interfere with whatever's going on on the main screen. I'd wager this edge panel will get more popular and start appearing on other handsets, and not just Samsung - maybe even Apple will shamelessly start using it in future devices. Wouldn't at all surprise me.
Well I don't give a rat's rear what others say about the Edge. I was already sold on it before I read this review. I'm "struggling" with a two-year old HTC One XL at the moment - I'm stuck with the factory battery because of this daft unibody design that most manufacturers have adopted. Having a user-changeable battery, and a dedicated notification edge, are HUGE pluses for me. So it's worth the price tag.
Because the Edge is made by Samsung, thats why it sucks. If it is made by LG, people will say different things.
MARK MY WORDS:
This will work better with tablets. Since its not good for handling by one hand, I bet Samsung is already cooking something for tablets. I think it would make sense in horirizontal handling. hope my comment gets famous for saying it first : )
Tom-Helge, 15 Nov 2014At least Samsung has the balls / guts to try something new and not sit on the same crap years ... morewell said... samsung really innovates and try experimenting new things but other OEM's just do nothing. they copy samsung and say samsung is a copy cat... look at iphone 6 plus, its just a bigger version of iphone 6 and nothing new whereas note series is a total different product with plenty of features and now this note edge has plus point over it... go ahead samsung... keep it up...
that edge is the most useless feature in the mobile industry so far
AnonD-324916, 14 Nov 2014Disappointment still coming with Samsung and you will be more disappointed with the GS6. Can't... moreLike you're not disappointed that your Nexus 6 records video with only mono audio?
AnonD-57516, 15 Nov 2014Not acceptable battery life for a Note series since it has more than 3000mAh in it. 52hrs endu... moreThe alpha also has a screen that is one inch smaller and 1/4 the resolution.
AnonD-70078, 15 Nov 2014Dues t matter what you say. The battery is still crapAs stated its mostly the standby that is carp which is obviously software level.
So it doesn't matter what you say
AnonD-246723, 15 Nov 2014It is a gimmik . Until now i never see a single note user actually utilize the s pen . Whe... moreI suppose that is coming from person never hold a Note in his hands...Note 1 were accepted very well and I'm glad Samsung have a guts to implement such a new things - most inovative company in the business by far...
I upgraded fron yhe Note 2 to the Note Edge. I love it so far. Samsung thougt of everything. The edgecscreen is really cool!
I had Nokia 5800 xpressmusic. It had a Penn too just like note. Most awesome thing in the world I've really enjoyed using that little penn.
Relax, 15 Nov 2014These companies sell prototypes rather than something that is actually usable At least Samsung has the balls / guts to try something new and not sit on the same crap years after years doing nothing. This applies both to hardware and software.
Samsung is one of the companies (Apple is not one of them) that actually innovates and moves both the market and the competition forward.
AnonD-112130, 15 Nov 2014flipin hell.build quality not neat. batter life sucks.
Lumina 1520 and blackberry passport... moreI really wish people would read before commenting
Both the 1520 and passport have Non-removable which Gsmarena always marks down
"The uneven gap between the metal frame and curved screen glass takes a few points away from an otherwise excellent build"
flipin hell.build quality not neat. batter life sucks.
Lumina 1520 and blackberry passport way better that this with 100% build perfection.
actually the battery life is pretty good its just that the standby time is poor.
around 10hr of web browsing and video playback is pretty good plus you have a fast charger
just like the first HTC One M7

Whe... moreIt's not a gimmick, been using note2 since day 1 and the s-pen is the only reason i've bought and kept my note2 device. If you know how to use it and if you need it then you will never use anything than note series.
