The Note Edge is a really novel idea, and for what it is it’s executed quite well, particularly in terms of hardware and display technology. Samsung manages to introduce a rounded portion without compromising image quality, the software is fairly limited but speedy, and the rest of the phone is exactly the same same as the well-liked Note 4. But unfortunately that doesn’t mean that the Note Edge actually makes any sense as a complete package.
A somewhat-fun gimmick, that’s it. Why would you buy this over the better Note 4? I doubt even Samsung knows. Still – if this brings truly flexible devices a step closer, I’m all for it.
