    I will admit if I had the option to have an s7 at 5.5 without the edge I would have jumped on it. I still got the S7e and I'm still not sure if I dig it yet..

    How about you?

    I didn't get the edge for the edge features. I got it because I like look of the curved edges. It makes video look more immersive. Also, bigger screen and battery.

    i got it more for the looks than the limited functionality it has.

    now when i look at my 6p, the screen looks dull in some way. i would still probably get it over a 5.5" non curved screen, mostly because it looks nice and is a little different. but it doesn't hurt that i have a few other devices to switch between if the mood strikes.

    Those sexy curves And bigger battery. And the fact it looks different than other phones.

    The edge features are growing on me. I love being able to swipe when the phone is mounted in my car.

    I use some of the edge features, but most of them would work fine without the curved screen. A side-swipe on a flat screen could do the same thing it does on a curved screen.

    The biggest advantage of it, I think, is that it makes the phone narrower than a flat 5.5" screen would be. And it looks pretty cool.

    I had an S6+ before so I had time to adjust to the screen. It's not for everyone. The Edge features feel like a useless gimmick for the first few months because it takes time to get to them. But I've learned to love the added level of app and task organization. And as someone else said, the phone stands out in a crowd. I like that.

    I've already grown accustomed to it. I could certainly live without it, but I do like the convenience

    I love the edges but I hate the lack of a good screen protector...

    Absolutely love the uniqueness of the edge as well as the very useful edge features.

    I used the Note Edge, so I am very happy with mostly naked screen and somewhat more functional App Edge.

    I have both the S7 and S7 Edge and the S7 screen looks decidedly flat and ordinary compared to the Edge. The Edge screen is more immersive and almost 3D like.

    Seriously??? I have an S7 and have spent some time with the S7E. "3-D like" is not something I would ascribe to that screen. Distorted edges is more my take on it. Very annoying when viewing video or photos, or even browsing. But that's just me.

    Still more of a party trick to me in terms of features, but man, do those curves make it very pretty.

    And there's a pretty neat side effect. Because the sides of the display curve slightly towards the sides of the phone, it actually makes it slightly narrower, making it easier to hold with one hand, which is a big deal for a 5.5-inch phone.

    Basically, yes. I love the edged display. Very pretty design that also has some benefits.

    Exactly. I have the edge, but sometimes I wish I would've gotten the regular.

    Do you all find that you're accidentally tapping the screen with your palm?

    Like the Edge display but don't use it that often. Actually have it disabled. Really wanted the phone for the size and color. That Silver just pops. As for the palms touching the sides, it's gonna happen. Just something you need to accept with the phone being the way it is... Love this phone though..

    I felt that way when I first got the phone. Definitely something to get used to, but now I agree with many here in that it gives it a very nice look.

    Definitely prefer the edge version to the standard one. In black it looks amazing. I seem to be one of the few that actually find the edge features useful. Got my quick dials in there as well as my favorite apps. It leave me with a clean and fresh home screen for once. I've also got the ruler / compass / torch too.
