    I'm Note 5 user awaiting the Note 7. It seems it will only come with an edge screen which I cringe at the thought of. Otherwise the phone will be amazing. How long did it take you to get used to the edge screen vs a flat screen. Would you go back to flat given the choice of exactly the same specs or do you now prefer the edge?

    Having had every Note since the Note 2, minus the Note Edge, I am not sold on the Edge screen yet. I've had the S7 Edge for a week. It's a great phone for sure. If the Note 7 has a similar build, it will feel great in the hand. I have accidently touched icons and moved them due to the edge display. That doesn't happen when I have the Spigen NeoHybrid case on though.

    I do use the edge for the different quick access features like people, weather, stocks and sports scores. I can live without it and I don't think I'd miss it, but I do use them.

    I am excited to see what the Note 7 brings. I'm happy with the S7 so I probably won't grab one immediately, but I'm sure I will in the fall or winter.

    Pretty quickly really. After a couple of weeks I got used to it. I mostly use the phone with two hands so it's not an issue. But I can use it with one hand if needed. Plus the one handed mode and Swiftkey flow makes it easier.

    I really like the curved screen, when watching a video it's a very immersive experience compared to a flat screen

    Was not an issue for me at all though I rarely use it now.

    Close to a year later I still to this day love the way the edges look on my phone

    Got used to it straight away and now flat screens look strange! Although given a choice Im not sure I world pick the edge screen again for the reflections on the edge and the fact that it's hard for a case to properly protect the screen. For the s7 though the edge was necessary for the larger screen and battery

    I cheated. I had a Note Edge when it came out, so about 12 hours later it was second nature.

    I live the curved edge as opposed to a flat screen. Better gaming and video experience

    I would have went with the regular S7 if it had better battery life. I do really like this phone though. Nova Launcher can prevent accidental icon moving on the home screen Fyi. Not trying to push it but just saying.

    I kind-of wish I had gotten the regular S7. Easy to get used to but I hate that I can't find good glass.

    I picked up an s7 edge yesterday. I also found that otterbox has made a defender for it.
    The screen cover makes typing a lil rougher as is swiping the edge panel.

    Im pretty sure I'll get the note7, even w curved edges, but as of now i still like flat screens better!!

    Get used to? I cant get over it. Staring at that gorgeous 5.5 inches of "infinity pool" side bezels is an enjoyment every time I turn on the phone. My only issue is that I cant get a screen protector (they all suck) to protect it.

    I don't use it much. Other then the effect that you get when scrolling through images which I like, I don't use the actual edge features.

    A few hours maybe. As for the Edge feature I put a few Apps in there that I use constantly to "force" train myself to use the Edge. It worked because now it's second nature to swipe the Edge with my thumb to gain access to those panels.

    I am used to it, but I still think the display is too sensitive and I accidentally hit a command without wanting to and gets me a little fustrated but I would not replace it cause the S7 Edge is a great phone.

    For the edge panel thing -- I use it for things I can't have in the notification bar such as wifi hotspot. For some reason T-Mobile removed that toggle .

    Once in a blue moon I'll mistakenly hit something on my phone but not often. I'm used to the edges and have learned how to hold my phone so that it almost never happens.

    Forever. I wouldn't take a phone with a screen with a built-in defect for free. (Annealing the glass takes VERY precise temperature control over quite a while. If someone in the room waves a finger, he could introduce a defect into the curve. I prefer screens that at least have a chance of being made properly. The Edge is a great sales gimmick - it's lousy engineering practice.)
