    Default how are left-handed people supposed to use the Note Edge?

    how are left-handed people supposed to use the Note Edge?

    or will Samsung do what Samsung do best... i.e. release a Note Edge
    Left-hand Special Edition?

    perhaps this is due to the fact that there are no left-handed people in Korea.
    Well... almost none... 1 in 1500 at most, according the research by a Korean
    university 3 years ago.

    I imagine the Edge is better for left handed people. If you think about it you will have your thumb on the right side which you can run along the plastic edge where if you were holding it as a right handed person (in your left hand) your fingers are going to be curling there. It seems to me you would be able to easily use your thumb to control the edge screen.

    if you want to use the phone left handed, then you can turn the phone upside down or just get another phone.

    I only have a left hand and use the Note 3 no problem. With the edge I could use the tips of my left hand to do certain things.

    Yeah, well a good idea from Samsung. Even however if that doesn't make it to production there are many mods online to make the screen work upside down

    I read a hands-on blog entry written by a left-hander, and that writer didn't seem to have a problem with it. I don't remember if it was here on AC or another site, I'm afraid.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    A better question would have been, "how are people who hold the phone in their left hand supposed to use the Note Edge?"

    I'm a lefty but hold my phone in my right hand, I'm sure a lot of other people do as well.

    You have 2 hands and you can't figure out how you would be able to operate it. Seriously

    Some people have NO hands due to no fault of their own.

    I'm a lefty and I have so much trouble with the pen. I do hold the phone in my right hand and use my left for touch. However, when I want to take out the pen it's almost comical.

    As a lefty, I hold my phone in my right hand and use the S-Pen with my left hand.

    Excuse my Shaq.7" hands.

    In playing with the Note Edge for a bit, I didn't experience any instances where something was opened due to an inadvertent touch from my palm. It felt pretty natural to me. Although, I did find myself sorta adjusting the position of the Edge's edge for a more comfortable hold.

    So yeah. I think it should be a non-issue for a lot of lefties. But I can't speak for everyone, haha.

    Yeah it's probably the other way around mostly. I'm right handed but hold the phone in my left hand.

    I think I read you can flip the phone upside down and the screen will rotate,but problem is the buttons will then be on top.

    When you flip the phone upside down, you will have on-screen buttons at the bottom of the phone. You can see the on-screen buttons at 2:14 of the below video.

    The normal position is holding a device in your weak hand and using your dominant hand for the fine motor skills of screen input. So it kinda seems like Samsung messed up. The Edge is a left-handed device!

    I'm left handed and I think Note Edge is actually perfect. We write with our left hands anyway. To me, it makes perfect sense to have the s-pen in our left hand and use our right hand to quickly move through apps. Most lefties are a little ambidextrous because we have to be, we live in a right handed world. No worries here. Lefty Power!!!
