SAMSUNG GALAXY EDGE
Experimenting with new ideas is the passion of Samsung it has proven several times by launching the new versions. This year at IFA in Berlin to the surprise of many, Samsung demonstrated two of its new models: Note series — the Note 4, and much more interesting Note Edge.
DESIGN AND SCREEN
Design of some model is the source of attraction, especially for the youth, for the Note Edge is very much alike to what one would expect from Samsung. The Galaxy Note Edge is much more alike Galaxy Note 4 and we can say that it is inherited from Note 4, there isn’t much difference, their basic features are same rectangular body with rounded corners, along with a very similar metal frame that attaches the body from all sides. At the back, again we have got the same faux-leather texture. At the front, both devices have a similar mic, home button, power buttons and volume placement. In addition, each has an S Pen.
The main difference between the Note 4 and the Note Edge is of its screen. The Note Edge has a curved right side, which acts as an entirely new screen group. If we talk about dimensions, the Note Edge is slightly lighter and smaller, but is wider than the Note 4.
The Note Edge’s rounded screen is the major source of attraction. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Round’s full curve, the Edge’s display only curves off on the right hand side of the device.
The right handed curve screen does not only offers quick access to apps, along with displaying the time and handling camera, but can also be used to view notifications when watching video clips, so it might not interrupt the video. The idea behind the design of Samsung Note Edge is very interesting.
Samsung is also offering an SDK to the developers so they can make use of the side panel in their apps, if they so choose.
The thickness of Galaxy Note Edge is 8.3mm. The former weighs 176g and the latter is of 174g. The Note Edge is available only in two colors, white and black.
It has an AMOLED display of 5.6-inch with a Quad HD (1440 x 2560) resolution, which is much massive for 525 pixels per inch.
The awesome point about the corner screen on the edge is that it changes the wallpaper without a glitch, and is obviously proficient of displaying various types of information at all times.
SYSTEM AND PROCESSOR
Samsung edge has the latest kit Kat Android 4.4.4 with the latest version of Touch Wiz. Both Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge feature quad-core Snapdragon 805 Krait 450 CPU. However, the processing speed differs little. The Note Edge produces 2.5GHz speed. It is also available in Exynos 5433 octa-core CPU variants as well. The Note Edge comprises of 3GB RAM.
The Note Edge has the same 16 mega pixels camera technology complete with OIS, so theoretically the images captured are of high standard. The moniker essentially indicates that the device combines the efforts of a physical Optical Image Stabilization gizmo and a software digital stabilization to produce shake-free video without any degradation in speed of delivery. OIS is also helpful in low-light environments, where even small vibrations can introduce blur due to the longer exposure times.
On the front screen, there is 3.7-megapixel camera that allows you to fulfill your wish of taking selfie. Indeed, Samsung has added a special feature that allows you to shoot selfie.
The Galaxy Note Edge comes with a stylus, known as the S Pen. According to the review of Samsung it says that it has redesigned the S Pen which make one assume that he is might be writing with a real pen, and it even lets you select several items, such as pictures, and share them instantaneously share via email or text
It as well offers new ways to take notes. The pressure sensitivity on the bundled S Pen has doubled from 1024 to 2048, which gives you the feel of natural handwriting experience. If talking about audio recording, the new selective playback feature can discriminate the voices of up to eight people.
The Snap Note feature for taking photos of whiteboards automatically uncurls the image and recognizes the text parts using optical character recognition.
The multi-window feature, allows you to run two apps split-screen and copy and paste information between them. There are also options for minimizing apps into small icons or resizable floating windows.
Other features on Note Edge include the fingerprint reader and heart rate sensor.
The micro SD card slot of Note Edge can take up to 128GB cards; as well the Galaxy Note Edge has a 64GB capacity.
BATTERY AND CONNECTIVITY
The connectivity features of Galaxy Note Edge includes Bluetooth v4.1, micro USB v2.0 along with MHL 2, 3G, LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, aGPS and GLONASS.
The batteries are fortified with frequent charging technology. It can fill 50 percent power on the battery in only 30 minutes. Batteries are equipped with ultra-power saving mode for making the battery exhaust slowly.
The Samsung Galaxy Note edge is spectacular-looking device which tries it best to provide something new something different. The second screen rounded edge corner gave it an outstanding look which fascinates many people especially the youth who always want some change some new look in accessories they carry. I hope that Samsung Galaxy Edge will fulfill the demands of its users.
