    So I know the edge has some features that are pretty sweet but now that you've had the phone, how often do you really use the edge for apps and Info?

    I'm warming up to the idea of getting a S7 or S7 edge and this may help me decide.

    I don't use the edge screen very often. I got the edge for the bigger screen size and battery.

    I actually find it super useful. Coming from the V10, I got used to having the 2nd screen to have a shortcut for frequently used apps.

    I use Edge shortcut to replicate that.

    I love it! I leave my home screen empty and put my most used apps in there.

    Funny, because I come from a note 5, and i kinda thought the edge thing was dumb. But I started using it, and the more I use it, the more I use it. I like that I can get a whole bunch of apps open with one hand.

    I didn't get the edge for the gimmic on the side. I got it because its bigger and nicer in the hand. The people edge that lights up a color when its face down is neat though.

    I like it. Cleans up the home screen real nice while still having access to my most used apps with a swipe of a finger.

    Love it for quick access to my favorite contacts. Makes it quick and easy to unlock the phone, swipe the edge, and make a call.

    How do you use it as a extra folder?

    I have 9 different edge panels. I'm thinking that's too many but throughout the day I use all of them. I do like the scoreboard(needs college sports), tasks and people the most. I really hope there is more development.

    I use it a few times a day. If it had the same functionality as the Note Edge from last year, I think the phone would be absolute perfection.

    In was you aren't aware, on the Note Edge, when you watch a video or play music, the audio/video controls are in the edge panel and app notifications appear there as well. When a phone call comes in, you answer it from the edge panel allowing you to remain in the app you were in. The caller ID info also shows in that panel when the call comes in and you hang up from that panel as well.

    When you are viewing a panel on the Note Edge, it allows you to continue doing what you were doing on the main screen as well unlike the S7 Edge. On the S7 Edge as you know, when you are using panel, the rest of the screen is blurred out. What's the point in that?

    I understand that they want the S7 Edge to be a completely different phone then the Note Edge but really, most of the stuff the "edge" panels do on the S7 Edge could be done without an edge panel... in my opinion.

    I still like my S7 Edge and do not regret buying it.

    I like it. I use it as extra folder as well and most used apps, tasks, calendar, and weather. Pretty regular use for me.

    Sounds like how the V10 second screen worked

    I don't use it. I turned it off initially but turned it back on with 2 tabs. Weather and my data usage. That's it.
