    Just saw stories and videos on the upcoming Note Edge. Love the looks of it. Looking for input of any kind.

    I can't picture any cases that would protect that edge in a fall and still let you see it.

    it's a gimmick. They would be better occupied getting rid of all the bugs in the phone.

    It isn't a "gimmick" .... Find use for it anywhere...

    At first I didn't think it was practical, worried about the cases and possible damage, etc. After watching the few videos available, and figuring someone will have a case with a clear side for it, if I were ready to change from my Note 3, I would definitely get the Edge. The possibilities for its usage are numerous (now if developers will embrace it)! I'm going to hold off though-- maybe the Note 5 next year.

    You are pretty much right in line with my thinking. Case makers *will* find a way to make it work I have no doubt. Thanks.

    I'm left handed which pretty much rules me out for the Edge, unless I want to be pressing the curved screen with my hand all the time.

    The Note 4 is the way forward

    I'd get it if I could afford to upgrade right now. But since I buy my phones at full price and my Note 3 is still pretty new, I'm not going to. I like the Edge and think that edge screen would be very useful. And I wish people would learn the meaning of the word gimmick so that they would stop using it incorrectly, like in this case.

    I'm left handed as well so I don't know how well the Edge is going to work out for me. Left handers will just have to wait until we can actually get a feel for the phone when it hits the stores. Other than that concern, it looks great and I'm sure it'll be a great operating device. I'm looking forward to the Edge and Note 4 and will be making my decision when I can get a feel for both of them.

    Ah. You guys have got around to the lefties thing. Me also.
    I was thinking it shouldn't matter which way you grip it. Right handers would have the edge being pressed by their palm, left handers would be pressing their fingertips there, though with an open hand in use so in one way it's a lefties phone.
    I do type with my left though. Hang on, I got that wrong, I would be holding it in my right and pressing the edge with my palm. We'll have to wait the reviews.

    Anyway, the point I was gonna make is they would need to make that area switchable to a non touch mode.
    I would also like to see apps that would use it as a ticker tape style display of news, texts, email reader etc. You could then lay it down or attach it to a car in interesting places.

    Ultimately, if it has better signal quality and wifi etc it could be for me. I will be waiting until December anyway.

    (I do really like the metal side frame of the Note 4 too.)

    I like the edge but I want to try the Note 4 and its metal frame, also I wonder if the edge would have looked better on the top or bottom of the phone, or both. I didn't even think of the lefty issue...

    My other issue with both devices why aren't they water-resistant? Is it due to the metal frame? the S-Pen? Anyone have any insight on that?

    I don't really need a curved display, I want a foldable display, now that's revolutionary.

    Top is an idea that I didn't think of it either. However there would be less room on the top or bottom for that matter then there is along the sides.

    The fewer of us own the Edge the more impact it will make when we whip it out.

    I would of loved to have gotten the edge but it didn't come out the same time as the regular note 4 which I got for 99 bucks .... if the edge comes out at 399 I couldn't justify spending the extra 300 bucks on it....

    the lower specs of this found make it a non-starter for me. Besides I don't want/need to see stuff on the edge of a phone. Prefer notifications on my Gear 2!!

    The Edge is not a lower spec device than the Note 4.
    The only thing lower is the battery by 220 milli amp hour (3220 vs 3000)
    The screen is about 1/4" shorter but it's 1/4" wider than Note 4. And wide is better IMO.

    Besides this there is no other spec deficiency that I know of. Can someone correct me, if I am wrong.

    "In marketing language, a gimmick is a unique or quirky special feature that makes something "stand out" from its contemporaries. However, the special feature is typically thought to be of little relevance or use. Thus, a gimmick is a special feature for the sake of having a special feature."

    Like a curved-edge screen.

    What usefulness does it have? Easier to scratch and break? Annoying night time illumination when it's face down charging on your bedside table?
