A Screen Worth Looking At

A Screen Worth Looking At

Smartphone manufacturers threw their weight behind stunning screens in 2014. Exquisite OLED and AMOLED displays came in all sizes and a bevy of designs. But only Samsung’s Galaxy Note Edge combined productivity with a striking 1080p resolution. On top of adding 160 more vertical pixels to the edge, the Galaxy Note Edge’s unusual curvature makes multitasking easier and more efficient.

 

More Space Inside and Out

Designed with simplicity, the Edge Screen leaves more room for what matters to you. Instead of clogging up your display with alerts, the Galaxy Note Edge keeps notifications off to the side, and adds useful widgets to help you stay on your toes. Follow your Twitter feed, track your S-Health stats, or monitor the weather without pausing your game, missing a minute of video or closing the photo that occupies your 5.7-inch screen. Users who load up on entertainment can also rest assured that the 2.7 GHz Quad-Core Processor will power every moment with lightening quick speeds.

 

A Place for Everything

The Edge Screen blends form and function with its native apps. The ‘S Note’s’ tools, for instance, are now on the Edge panel, which maximizes the larger-than-life screen and enhances usability. The same is true of the 16-megapixel camera, whose settings and shutter are easier to reach on the right-hand edge.

 

The Edge Screen comes with built-in apps, as well. A speed dialer, a voice recorder, a flashlight and a stopwatch open with the swipe of a thumb. Users can even turn the Edge Screen into a ruler or use the clock on the Edge Screen while the rest of the screen is off. By making just a little more space, the Note Edge brings a host of independent functions to the palm of your hand.

 

Out with the Middle Man

Unlike some third-party launchers, the Galaxy Note Edge won’t ask you to give up your privacy for customization. With the Edge Screen, you can keep your favorite apps and app shortcuts at your fingertips and never click yes to pesky and intrusive agreements. Add as many apps as you like, and access them even when the case cover is closed. Users will notice right away that the rich color of the Quad HD Super AMOLED (2560X1440) screen makes the Note Edge a beauty to tailor this way or that.
