Galaxy Note Edge – Review, Specs, Pictures

September 9, 2014 | 0

The Galaxy Note Edge is similar to Note 4, the only difference is that the first one has a more premium design and a more stylish look.  The curved area or the edge gives the look of an infinity pool.  All the notifications, app shortcuts, time and date, alarms, tickers, movie playback controls etc are placed on this ‘edge’.  So, if you are watching a movie on your Note Edge, the control buttons remain on the edge without inferring with the movie.   You can customize the way you want notifications to be placed with the help of the Edge Manager application The phone is named Edge because the right edge of the display helps you get access to many standard functions of the phone, apps, notifications etc, even when the phone-screen is locked.
