    Hello everyone
    So I came across a note edge on ebay, I talked the guy down on price and I couldn't pass it up. I am coming from a note 3. I was trying to wait for the note 5 to come out to update through AT&T...anyway that's another story.

    First off, on my note 3, in my app drawer I have a 5x5 grid. On my edge I have a 4x5 (or is it 5x4?) Grid. I don't remember how I got the 5x5 on my note 3, is there a way to do this on stock touchwiz??

    Next, is there a way to transfer all of my bookmarks over to the new device? I used smart switch mobile to transfer most stuff.

    Also on the note 3 home screen and widget pages, I have 4 apps docked to the bottom. They are there no matter what widget page I m on. Is there a way to do this on the edge?

    Why did they take the note 3 style charger away? I liked it. It wasn't because it made it faster, I just liked the sturdiness of it.
    So far battery life is great but I have not used it on a full charge yet. Will let you know tomorrow about that.

    Then my wishful thinking...I dislike new phones because all of my autocorrect stuff is gone. I hate that. I wish I could transfer that over also. On my note 3 and this phone also, sometimes it randomly puts the same words twice. Has anyone experienced that?

    Overall, great phone so far. These are a few things I just wish I could fix.

    If you registered it with Samsung, I suggest you pick up the spare battery kit with the 50% off code. (If they are still doing that) I am a heavy user away from home. Also I don't like power saver, or dimming my screen. I also use live wallpaper because I like it. With my usage I can drain the battery to less than 30% in 8 to 9 hours. So a spare battery comes in handy then. But now with my QI back and those cheap Qi pads eBay has for about $5, I don't even use the spare battery anymore. Enjoy the Edge... I know I do..

    I'll check out the spare battery for sure. I never had much luck with the qi pads. I can never seem to align the phone with the pad right and somehow I knock it off at night. I don't use poser saving mode either and kee my screen brightness on auto.

    Loving the device so far.

    Not much of help because not completely sure but I think if you have Gmail/Google you should be able to save your bookmarks then when you bring it back up it should sync it.
