    Does a curved edge has more functionality? For me an exposed curved edge is more fragile than a flat one protected by the bezels.

    No. An Edge device is a style choice.

    A curved edge allows a phone to have practically no side bezels. I put my S7 edge next to an iPhone 6s plus and I had to laugh at the difference in overall size despite the same screen size.

    The edges aren't super pronounced this go round, it seems. No need to worry.

    The edge models have edge display, which except for the night clock and edge notifications would function the same on a flat screen. I never have my phone sitting where edge clock or notifications would do me any good.

    I dont mind the edge screen so much on my s7 edge, but i would trade it for a flat note7 in a heart beat. If the rumor is true and a flat note7 with lower specs is announced, i would still get the edge version because i want the higher specs. But we don't even know if thats true yet.

    Well, the benefits is that the device can be made to be slightly narrower and also creates an illusion of virtually zero side-bezels.

    Each generation of the Edge has added more features, so I suspect that will continue with the Note 7

    A curved edge is for those who like to have the "distorted image look" on the sides of the display.

    From my experience with the edge screen of the S6 Edge/S6 Edge+/S7 Edge, the curved screen makes the display give off a 3D illusion effect. Videos and photos look super cool! Even though I won't be using the edge features much, I still think the one-of-a-kind design gives the phone a very unique and futuristic look and feel. It seems that the curved screen on the Note 7 won't be as prominent though, which I'm also excited about.

    I've never experienced this on my S7 edge, but good for you if you're wowed by the device.

    I love this quality also. Watching video and reading text on this device is awesome. I've now owned 2 edge screens in a row and both times I've been dazzled by the effects of the screen

    I definitely like both sides edged rather than one side edged.

    If the newest "leak" is correct, it looks like flat is where it's at. I prefer flat so hoping the leak is reals.

    It's a victim of its own success. It was considered a niche device. That is no longer the case.

    I loved curved displays, in theory. I think they look great and they always catch my attention when I see them. But would I want one for myself? I don't know and I don't really think so. I love the Note 5 and will be happy if I stay with it, but I also love new, shiny things, especially new Notes, so I may give in to the curved craze. Both of my sisters had s6 edges (one was a plus). The s6e+ shattered and became basically a paperweight after a while and the s6e holds up well with falls, but my sister finds it annoying at times, so I'm really not sure how I feel about them for everyday use or if they have any real advantage besides looking cool.

    I have a S7edge and there's micro scratches all over the curved area. The glass or coating must be weak in the curved areas. There's no method to fully protect the edges Also, when you wear polarized sun glasses, the curved area is darker and distorted. I'm really bummed there's no flat Note 7.

    Are there no good screen protectors?

    If you are a gamer, the lack of bezel is annoying and can facilitate scratches. Not to mention more cleaning the display. Really hoping for no curve on this, since also means a higher price by about $50. If it had front stereo speakers like the MXPE, that would be good for $50 more Presuming if as good as the MXPE's.
