Samsung Galaxy Note Edge Review

Review: Samsung’s Galaxy Note Edge dares to be different, but does it innovate?

Review: Samsung’s Galaxy Note Edge dares to be different, but does it innovate?

Samsung doesn’t need saving just yet, but most people seemed to laugh it off last year when I said that the South Korea-based giant was quickly headed toward a big mess. In developed markets, customers flocked to Samsung’s giant phones and their magnificent displays. In regions where mid-range and low-end phones are more prominent, Samsung flooded the market with dozens of affordable models. Even more important, perhaps, the company devoted double-digit billions each year to marketing and advertising its devices, and all that money helped Samsung keep its impossible promise.

But a huge problem was developing and not everyone saw it. Samsung apparently didn’t even see it, or it simply turned a blind eye. The problem with being a leader is that others will follow. Apple’s lawsuits may have branded Samsung a copycat, but the company was absolutely a leader in building a wide range of big-screen smartphones and an even bigger arsenal of capable, affordable mid-range and low-end phones.

Then, others followed. And they did it better. Now, no one seems to be laughing anymore. More →

New report suggests Samsung’s Galaxy S6 will have some crazy new features

More and more reports are detailing Samsung’s next flagship handset, the Galaxy S6 “Project Zero” that’s supposed to launch next year, with Samsung said to be creating the handset from scratch rather than simply improving on previous Galaxy S models. While the Galaxy S6 is far from becoming official, The Korea Herald notes new speculation that Samsung might be planning a bold new design for the Galaxy S6, even more interesting than the Galaxy Note Edge curved handset — that is, if you like having special displays on the phone’s edges.

Video: Samsung’s bizarre $950 curved phablet unboxed for the first time

Samsung has gained a reputation for releasing a solid, predictable lineup of smartphones year after year.

If you’re thinking about picking up the Note Edge, you’ll have to wait until November 14th, but Samsung’s unboxing video should tide you over in the meantime. More →

Samsung shares 5 reasons we should care about Galaxy Note Edge’s weird curved display

The new Galaxy Note Edge is coming out soon — although Samsung hasn’t said when — and the first thing you probably noticed about it is that weird curved screen. What purpose does it serve other than to look like that part of the yearbook that no one can sign?

Well, the people over at Samsung took the time to outline the five features of the Edge screen in a nifty looking infographic that will hopefully explain what it’s all about. It shows a few things that aren’t quite possible on rivals phones, so you may be interested in giving this long infographic a look. More →

The Galaxy Note Edge might just be a limited edition marketing trick

Samsung’s bold Galaxy Note Edge was announced alongside the regular Galaxy Note 4 during the company’s September event, but the curved handset won’t be as widely available as the normal phablet version. Unsurprisingly, Samsung can’t mass produce enough units for a big launch, and ZDNet Korea reports that the South Korean giant has confirmed the Galaxy Note Edge will be a limited edition run. More →

Expect to pay more for the Galaxy Note Edge, if you can find one

Samsung at IFA 2014 unveiled two new Galaxy Note phablets, the “regular” Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Note Edge, a device that features a two-sided wraparound flexible display. The phone represents Samsung’s second take at smartphones with curved screens, following last year’s strangely curved Galaxy Round, but ZDNet Korea reports that Samsung still isn’t ready to mass-produce such devices in large numbers.  More →

Galaxy Note Edge hands-on: Samsung’s newest phablet packs a huge twist

Galaxy Note Edge hands-on: Samsung’s newest phablet packs a huge twist

Samsung has proven time and time again that it is not afraid at all to experiment with new ideas. Sometimes, those ideas lead to huge new product segments — imagine Samsung hadn’t pushed so hard with supersized smartphone screens. Other times, the company falls flat on its face. Of course, Samsung has enough money in the bank that it can afford to fall down while it searches for “the next big thing.”

Is the brand new Galaxy Note Edge an aha moment featuring meaningful innovation or another instance of Samsung throwing spaghetti at the wall to see if it sticks? We’ll let you be the judge. More →
