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.

After the 1st update, then it again prompt me to update (again!)
Not sure, then i did the update.
There is one update on security patch, Android security patch level, dated 2015-12-01
The other update is for v5.1.1

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.

If its not receiving then definitely we would be saying its an outdated phone in terms of s/w and ya we can flash some custom roms and upgrade but im saying about official N update.......
I was on sam live chat 2 or 3 months ago and i asked will note edge receive 6.0 and they said yes. Thats what they told me.

This is the very 1st Note Edge, as others may be trying to copy, yet.
quote "Note edge is outdated in terms of software".
Then why do Samsung is releasing Android version 6.
Not many other models, of about the same age, are yet to release or even mentioned about updating to Android version 6. The word "out dated" is determine by each individual opinion, not official statement.
Relaxingjeremy, 03 May 2016But my phone is unlocked so it should come right awayMine was bought sim fee ( unlocked to) . But i keep checking OTA for any updates and it keeps saying latest updates installed. Week ago i received an update. Think it was either stability update or for security patch. Im thinking maybe is preperation for 6.0. But might not be. I dont know.
Think i might have to stay with note edge as i like to have spare batteries just incase i run out. I wish they would bring removable batteries back in thier new models. I was looking forward to note 6. It will come with sd support which is good. But non removable battery. And i read it cost alot to have battery replaced.

I wonder will samsung be staying with non removable batteries? Like note 6. Is it going to be the norm with non removeable batteries in the funture?
