What is edge screen?

The edge screen on the Galaxy S7 edge, S6 edge and S6 edge+ provide options for customization so you have the information you want just a glance away and the actions you need to take only a swipe and tap away.

The Apps edge displays your five most frequently used apps for you to access at a moment’s notice.

Similarly, Tasks edge speeds things up rather nicely for you. Add shortcuts to apps or functions you enjoy using most with your phone, such as taking selfies, creating new calendar events or sending a text.

The edge panel works when the device is in standby mode. Slide your finger along the edge when the display is in standby mode to view the information you need, including news updates and the weather forecast.

When faced down, the edge lighting feature lights up the edge screen when you receive calls or notifications. You can color code up to five contacts that will appear in their respective colors when they get in touch, while all other calls or notifications will be shown in neutral bright light.
