    Aside from the price difference, the only differences I see between the standard Note 4 and the Note 4 Edge are: (from Galaxy Note 4 vs. Note Edge: 5 Things Buyers Need to Know )

    1. Edge is smaller (5.6 inch vs 5.7 inch)
    2. Edge has smaller battery (3000 mah vs 3200 mah)
    3. Edge has a (somewhat) cool curved edge

    I suspect the last option will make it difficult (if not impossible) to put a "screen saver" on the phone - especially a glass one.

    Can anyone suggest why you'd want to get the Edge over the standard Note 4??

    The big difference for me is "Note 4 works with Samsung Gear VR and Note Edge does NOT." That is a deal killer for me on the Edge, so I ordered the Note 4 this morning despite loving the idea of the Edge's side-viewable screen area.

    For more detail see the Gear VR Specs where it says:

    "Connection
    microUSB 1.1 connection to the Galaxy Note 4"

    I'd love to be shown wrong on this, I'd go Edge if this were not the case, but the bloggers who were at the Samsung launches confirmed it with Samsung is what I heard....might have been on the AC Podcast...

    Note Edge DOES have metal.

    It has been reported in many reviews. It is painted metal that looks like plastic.

    I guess I'm just confused why the Edge is more expensive than the standard version. It has fewer features, except for the "edge". What was Samsung thinking??

    Note Edge's 5.6 screen maybe smaller, but it has an extra 160 pixel wide curve screen. So, it's 5.6" + 160 pixels.

    I do not get why Samsung put a smaller battery in the Edge, considering it probably will use more juice due to the additional screen.

    The fact that the Edge does not have metal is not confirmed. Some sites say it does.

    I am on the fence to go 4 or Edge. I'd wait until I can play with the Edge to see how it works in real life. I don't have to play with Note 4, I know how that plays.

    That curved screen takes up more space. That space had to come from somewhere.

    I actually have to disagree. Metal is a big selling point for me. I just don't care for plastic banding, ESPECIALLY plastic that is supposed to look like metal. Just feels chintzy.

    For me, the metal is a very minor point. I always have a small case on my phone, so, whatever the back and sides look like, they get hidden anyway.

    the majority do not use their phones naked. if you don't use a back protector and a screen saver (film) one drop can ruin your phone.

    there is very little activity on the Note Edge forum. I wonder if people just don't take it so seriously. If they look at it as a gimmick. I still think it looks pretty cool.

    Well, as someone pointed out, "except for the 'edge'" is the point. I haven't quite decided as yet if the Edge is a gimmick or a really interesting productivity tool. But for those who want it, it is a deal-maker. The rest of the stats are similar and close enough.

    At this point, inclined to say I'll wait and see what Edge 2 looks like, how people report using the Edge, etc; I'm more likely to go with the regular Note 4 just now

    One strange spec that I saw (Compare Mobiles - Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Samsung Galaxy Note Edge Specs, Battery & more) indicated that the browser on the "Edge" supports "Flash", but the browser on the Note 4 doesn't. I suspect it's a typo, as I can't imagine that Flash will be supported natively on one and not the other.
