    Now that the Note 4 and Note Edge has been announced, I have been thinking about which one of these phones to consider for my next upgrade. Initially I thought the Note Edge was a gimmick and not really gonna have much use for it but the more I really think about it and think about how I use the phone, the Edge may be an excellent device. The possibility of reading a message or getting a notification without actually turning on the device has me excited.
    The main concern is how much of a drain it will have on the battery.
    Thoughts?

    I'm wondering who else is getting the Note Edge instead of the Note 4.

    I like it with one exception, the loss of the side mounted power button.

    I think it is the first curved display on a smartphone yet ? It looks really wierd I will play around with it for sure but in terms of buying it's going to be the note 4.

    I have to see/use an Edge model to know if I'd be interested. The video hands on review states accidentally touching the sidescreen will be an issue and I'll have to see the rugged protective cases for it. It is possible that the standard Note 4 will offer just as much function.

    I am in the same zone. I am using the Note 2, which I love, but am ripe for an upgrade. I was waiting for the Note 4, but will certainly consider the Edge, after playing with it and reading actual reviews.

    The question is whether the Edge will come to the US, and if all carriers will carry it.

    I've seen several posts in other threads asking if the Edge will release in the US but it's already been announced by all carriers:

    To me the biggest thing Samsung revealed today was the widespread availability of the Edge version. Everything I'd read prior to today indicated the Edge was expected to be released only in South Korea.

    Will be interesting to see how much more expensive the edge will be I expect ~+ 150 $ only for the curved display.

    If it's anywhere near that expensive count me out.

    Oh man this changes everything... When they said "select markets" during the event I assumed it wouldn't come to the US. I will probably stick with the Note 4, but now I have a decision to make!

    I doubt it. If people are already debating, that tells you it's not really any better than the Note 4. That, and the fact that it's all plastic might offset the price to equal each other. I know I have no interest in it over the Note 4.

    The technology of the S805 might offset any battery life decrease over the Note 3. Has anyone saw the physical specs for this edge yet? It looks thicker than the Note 4.

    Yeah I don't see the advantage of that extra screensize seems a bit awkward nonetheless it's interesting.

    Oh and the battery is 3200 mah compared to 3180 on the note 3

    3180? To my knowledge the Note 3 is 3200 and the Note 4 is 3220.

    I'm excited about the Edge. Right now I'm closer to getting it than a Note 4 but I'll look at it in a carrier store before I buy either.

    Note 4, the Edge version doesn't do it for me I just don't get the benefits out of it so I will be happy rocking the standard slab.

    Not really digging the Edge. Seems more gimmicky than anything. Also how would you fit a case on the note Edge? . With little kids I cannot go naked with my phone!

    @OceanView i say go for it...samsung is releasing (or has released; unsure) the SDK to devs, so it will be interesting to see how the "edge display" will be used. ticker-like notifications, scores, etc. seem cool as-is.

    but, as others have commented, price will be a factor.

    The metal band will be a differentiator for me. Premium feel makes a difference.

    Is there anything one gives up in choosing the Edge over Note 4?

    Edge is a cool concept but looks like a pain to hold. I can see myself touching the side screen with my right hand. Also looks a bit bulker than the 4. Maybe in a year or so when it changes design but this a great step for Samsung

    The edge intrigues me, but I need a rugged case for my phone can't go without it.
