2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Good build quality
  • Fingerprint, and health-related sensors
  • Excellent, vivid Super AMOLED display
  • 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
  • Top-end performance backed by powerful hardware
  • Excellent camera, with 4K video recording
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Good battery life, with a useful Ultra Power Saving Mode, and fast charging support
  • Great for gaming
  • Very good media playback
  • Useful S Pen functionality
  • Excellent build quality
  • Bright, vivid display, with good sunlight legibility
  • Sleek and friendly MIUI interface over Android
  • Blazing fast performance, backed by top-end hardware
  • Excellent primary camera with great picture quality
  • 8 MP secondary camera is great for selfies
  • Solid battery life
  • Rich choice of rear covers
  • Excellent for gaming
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • 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
  • 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
  • Loudspeaker could have been louder
