Backup not necessary.
There is another way to resolve any issue &or problem, Refer to next paragraph.
As the the *#0*# on the keypad, it will appear several box that to test each individual function, colors, etc. To exit, click back button twice.
Most 2nd dealer use this to check if the phone is anything wrong.
Most problems are not phone hardware related, but could be (quote:)rogue apps.
There was an security updates when i got this phone in April, and also update v5.1.1
As most probably the telco unable to sell, so give huge discount.
I did encountered that the screen hang, press any buttons and key, no action.
In the end, remove and put back the battery.
Anyway, apps are written by non-professional people, as there are website to teach you.
I did encountered an app (for wifi check) that make both router wifi gone.
So i uninstall and reinstall again in order to fix that problem.
I had read about that in order to fix problem app, it recommend that is to uninstall and then reinstall the app. In this way, it may install the correct version of the app to Android ver.
Do not do all at the same time. That method is to check if the problem had gone away.
Meaning, do 1 app at a time and wait for the problem to appear, if any. If no = solved.
Hence, there is no need to do factory reset, as this is the last & final option.

Sometimes you may need to complete the check before next, such as "secret code *#0*#
This type codes are used by small (1 man operate) mobile shop that deal with trade-in and sell new & used phones, accessories such as screen protector, and may include repair.
And i won't be surprise that service staff also use them, especially when you hand the staff and they just keying and checking. So it is sort of reliable method.
For other mobile phones, you could check on this website.
From here, you could know what sort of problem you are having.
Anonymous, 31 May 2016my edge is draining power like beer. a full charge can't last me even 5 hrs. any advice. Suggest you to fully charge to 100% plus 1 - 2 hrs more, for few times, not necessary every charge, just occassionally.
My phone finally do not eat battery that much. As not like 1% per hour standby, but for few hours then drop 1%. Maybe 2-3 % for usual sleep period.

Do search on "How to force shutdown for Note edge"
Before proceed to do anything, pls backup important datas.
The search pop-up this: "Entering Safe Mode to Uninstall an App:"
Also there is a link to mentioned about 6 problems with Note Edge;
Don't follow exactly what they mentioned, as it is not official &or expert advice.
Do search for your issue. (I frequently use search in find certain info, almost everyday)
Meanwhile i am also trying to search & understand more in details, include other websites.

I had a phone that always given me problems, until i read somewhere (maybe a hint from the phone, i forgotten which) that the Date/Time may affect the phone. It was the battery 00% and the time/date was not set, as the phone i was not using for a long period.
Anonymous, 31 May 2016my edge is draining power like beer. a full charge can't last me even 5 hrs. any advice. it might be the battery, hope it's the battery, because the other option is the phone is defective or too many apps running at the same time. If it's the phone then you better have insurance or you're stuck with buying a new one.

I will find a way to roll back.
