Hi Everybody, I am not really a samsung fan however my last phone was NOTE 2 and currently I am using Note Edge. I started using this phone on 01 Feb 2016 and till date I have faced lots of issues. The biggest one is that the device gets overheated, sometimes its 45*C, teh display gets hot as well, HOT like really really hot that I need to turn off my phone for 3-4min with battery removed. Secondly, the device lags like anything, I mean with this spec we do not expect that much lagging. The notification bar does not comes down easily, Its takes good time and lag is clearly visible at that point of time. I am not very heavy user. I keep my wifi on all the time and most of the time I only use my phone to make calls bcz I use WHATSAPP on my laptop. Frankly speaking even after 2 years of using a device liek NOTE2 I expected a lot from NOTE EDGE however now I feel that my NOTE 2 is btter that NOTE EDGE. Apart from that I have another problem, I am using finger print sensor to unlock device, after 5-10 min my device show some sort of lag and then it locks itself and says " cannot use fingerprint sensor after device restart " and then I need to put my password and unlock the phone. I and thinking of selling this phone howveer I love the EDGE part very much. I would liek to know if I am doing somthing wrong with the settings or what else could be the problem. I tried hard reset as well. I am running Marshmallow 6.0.1. Please suggest what has to be done.

Meaning touch the edge and slide toward the screen, meaning right to left in portrait mode;
or touch the edge and slide down in wide mode.

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?

Maybe it takes time to get to everyon... moreSimply superb.Its a must have update on note edge..Before this update i was on 5.0.1 which had several issues like battery drain even on standby,performance lag,ram was slow but after MM update the phone is really smooth and very responsive.Look wise its the same old app icons( with just change in shapes) nothing new to expect.But one thing i seriously like is the Doze mode which is very effective on MM..During night hours (6-7hrs) it just consumes 0-1% of battery which is amazing(previously on lollipop it was 5-7 %)
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.
