    I only saw a quick tour of the edge factor when I went to best buy. It's similar to the Note 4 Edge but you basically create extra pages just on the edge you ca n flip through. Kinda neat

    I watched a few videos of the s7 edge... Wow. There are some nice options. Lightning call alerts looks neat. There is one video saying that there are at least 64 options for the side panel, but you are limited to 9 active. Also, some are downloadable only with a fee, though not all.

    I keep my app drawer sorted into folders...gonna see if I can do the same with the edge panel.

    I need to understand why, when and how anyone puts their phone face down to utilize the "glow" feature of the edge...?

    Privacy if you don't want people to see who's calling when your phone is sitting face up.

    What about notifications? I loved how they popped up on the side instead of on the screen

    To me it gives more functionality to the note edge features that i honestly fell in love with two years ago. And they are all customizeable which is awesome for each user. This was one of the main reasons i left the iPhone behind. Cant wait to see what samsung is going to do with it next.

    I do the same thing. Plus I like the look of a glowing light on the side of my phone.

    There is a chance I might too. I'll have to play with it for a while to see what I might like about it, as I have never had a edge screen before. I'm keeping an open mind though for now. Hoping there is some useful items for me

    You are aware that these devices are used in literally millions of different ways by millions of different people. Each have their favorites, and each have things that they don't use. What makes android so awesome is the ability to customize your device to so many different combinations. The edge features have a simple toggle to turn them off. You don't want it, turn it off. I for one never, ever, use any gestures, and quite a bit of other awesome features, I can't even name at the moment.

    As for the lighting edge, Yep my phone is face done most of the time. first I have a zen watch, and second it protects the screen. "What!?!?!?! protects the screen, you must be an *****!" Well, you may be right about the ***** part, but many/most device cases have a several mm lip around them specifically to keep the screen from touching when face down. Thus the delicate screen is protected from anything i might drop on it.

    I still do not see the point in regards to function for this device, besides easier to hold and still claim 5.7 display.

    The Edge apps that use the actual curve for displaying will not work, since too thin of a surface. The side bar stripe is superfluous since you cqn bring the same function by swiping the edge of a normal display.

    Comparing the Note 5 and 7 in store and you notice text in desktop mode for web pages is harder to read due to the curve.

    Bluesnews is a good example of text on sides of page. Great site, BTW.

    So your saying the edge apps, like ticker, night clock, etc won't work even though they are listed in the user manual?

    I'll do face down if you show me a slim sexy case that has that little lip... I'm not gonna get a big stupid case just so I can put my phone face down. It never how's face down because I don't want to damage the screen. I like the idea, though...

    What about the night clock screen? I'm guessing that's gone. I love that feature.

    How do they work without enough edge surface to display? The curve area is too small to serve the same visible function as the S7E and it was already small on the S7E. Interesting to see how it works.

    No idea yet because the phone I posted with at Best Buy was in demo mode and you couldn't turn it off to test the edge. But it's in the manual, so they have it working somehow.
