    Nope, because the edge is super miniscule, so it doesn't really matter.

    I can put up with the slighted bezel curve, but if it had the Edge display I would not be getting this.

    Nope. I'll admit, I was hesitant at first but found out the edges are minimal so it's like the best of both worlds. I also found a thin case that'll protect the screen if it falls face down.

    At first I was very annoyed that they didn't go with a flat screen option and even decided to skip the phone because of it. I hated the curved screen on my S7E. However, I played with the Note 7 at Best Buy and the edges are nowhere near as bad. It actually looks and feels great in the hand.

    I like my s7 edge but originally didn't want the edges on my Note 7. Then the keynote came and they pushed them out so we would have more screen for the spen and I'm fine with it. I was worried that the edges would be like the s7's and now that they aren't, I'm cool with them on the note 7

    I do. Most are saying the edge is subtle but to me its the same exact edge as on the edge version. I think people are mixing up the design of the casings. The Note 7 housing is much better designed and a accommodates the edge much better.. Makes it less sharp and unconfortale. At least from my personal observation. ..

    Actually we're not. It actually a smaller edge, not a design change. And seeing the phone in person, it's extremely evident.

    I'm confused. Is there a flat screen Note 7 or is this just a hypothetical question?

    I am OK with the edge, my concern is getting a tempered glass screen protector to work well and cover the whole screen

    I don't know if you guys have noticed, but in the news section comments about the Note, all of the Edge "haters" have mostly gone silent.

    Something tells me a few of them have actually played with one, and realized that they were wrong lol

    I played with one 4 times. Don't particularly like it. Funny thing is, I would have chosen an s6 edge over the flat one, when Samsung first introduced the two-sided edge. I guess I wanted an option with the Note 7. I feel the screen is narrower than the flat version and less space on the Note 7. Plus things blur a little at the edges.. Just me, I guess..

    I saw the phone 4 different times, but I may have missed it. What was evident to me because I did a direct comparison was that the S7 edges design is very different and exposes the edge much more than the Note 7 that seems to go straight down uniformly with the screen as opposed to the S7 edges body that come up at meets the screen at a wider angle.

    The actual curve of the screen looks pretty identical to me. Samsung just did it much better on the Note 7. Mind you that just about everyone agrees with you but my experience was different..

    Yup, just you. There wasn't any blurring over here, maybe you happened upon all the defective ones...

    My only issue with the "edge", and it may not be an issue at all - won't know till I get it - is that it can be a real pain with the N5 when I hand the phone to somebody to show them a video, etc., and they grab the edges, but also barely touch the screen to select something else. It happens all of the time. With the edge, it just seems like that would be unavoidable.

    That's my biggest concern. My wife has an S6 edge+ and we went through three tempered glass screen protectors. None of them would sit down in the middle of the screen, making her not happy at all. If there was a case on the phone with the screen protector, it was even worse. I finally just took the screen protector off altogether.

    Compare them in store. The curved area is less to the point ticker apps would not be legible on the side. There is no real edge to use for it.

    Didn't detect any blurring actually, and I specifically looked for that because I was concerned about it myself.
