2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 8 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Good build quality
  • Fingerprint, and health-related sensors
  • Bulky and unwieldy
  • The Note Edge with its curved rim is a bit of a challenge to handle as you have to be careful to not touch something on the edge screen accidentally - this takes some time getting used to
  • With the edge screen being on the right side, the power/lock key is now moved to the top of the phone, making it inconveniently hard to reach

Display

  • Excellent, vivid Super AMOLED display

Software

  • The edge screen is a show-off, combines some decent use cases, and in this phone becomes central to the UI - it holds quick shortcuts, notifications, information from apps like Yahoo Sports, Yahoo Finance, Facebook, Twitter, S Health, etc, as well as small games

Performance

  • Top-end performance backed by powerful hardware

Camera

  • Excellent camera, with 4K video recording

Audio

  • Good loudspeaker

Battery

  • Good battery life, with a useful Ultra Power Saving Mode, and fast charging support

More

  • Great for gaming
  • Very good media playback
  • Useful S Pen functionality
  • In the end, the edge screen adds minimal extra usability, while making the phone significantly pricier - making this a phone which is likely to have only niche appeal
