However, the main difference between the two Galaxy Note Edge and Note 4 – is display. Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is one of the few devices with a curved screen and right edge of the display immediately catches the eye. And it looks interesting, pay attention to everything.
Technically, here we have one display, the right part of which is bent. Software, the whole interface is divided into two zones: the main screen has a diagonal of 5.6″ and resolution 2560 x 1440 pixels and sideband, its resolution is 2560 x 160 points. This is enough to place a column of icons, scrolling and other useful information.
In the settings there is a separate item that is responsible for setting the lateral line. It can be customized and configured for convenient use. Standard functionality allows you to: Select the display line (favorite applications, news, weather, sports and even small game), set some of them (the source of the news, choose the application displayed), change their location and even download new ones from the store Samsung.
The latter is especially nice, it is likely that over time will catch up and third-party developers. If this happens, use of the line at the end will be much greater. For example, it is possible to derive additional elements in demanding games (e.g. – strategies), and sub-tabs.
Galaxy Note Edge is revolutionary because of its display and we hope to see something revolutionary in the original Samsung Galaxy Note 5 too.
