    I use app edge all the time. Very handy to have all of my heavily used apps one Swipe away. No issues with accidental touches. Definitely getting Note 8 when it comes out and it will be an edge screen.
    Agreed

    There are no "good" glass screen protectors for the S7 edge. The only decent screen protector I found for the phone was the BodyGuardz ScreenGuardz HD Curved Screen Protector at AT&T.

    I'm indifferent to the edge screen. I'll get whatever phone is awesome at the time and within my budget. I don't use screen protectors and have never had a scratch.

    the bigger battery would have been the only lure for me, but we don't get to choose now with the S8. Ah well.. Such is life

    About the only thing I ever used on the edge panel was people edge for when I was waiting for a text from someone. In case people don't know, you set up people in that panel so people are assigned a color. When you turn the phone upside down, if a person calls or texts, the panel will glow with the color so you can easily tell they called or texted.

    Otherwise, there is nothing useful about it for me.

    Unfortunately that isn't even available anymore once you upgrade to Nougat😔

    I like my s7 edge but wasted too much money on glass screen protectors that won't work with my case and the plastic ones are not so good.. Maybe if the edge is more like the note 7 screen protectors would work.
    Have had my S7 edge for almost a year now. I use a case, but no protector. No scratches, dings, marks anywhere.

    Wow. I didn't even notice. I have an unlocked edge on MM and a unlocked T-Mobile edge on Nougat. I used people edge on the unlocked edge just yesterday and it worked perfectly so I just assumed it still worked on Nougat.

    I really didn't think I would get used to having a phone with edges or that I would use the edge features. I was wrong on both accounts. The note 7 helped to get me used to the edges even though that phone's edges were not as pronounced.

    Yall think it would be worth upgrading from the s7 edge to s8?

    Imy thinking about buying Ghostek waterproof case for my edge but can't decide whether to wait and get the s8 or just keep my s7 edge.

    I feel really no purpose on getting the S8. The s7 edge screen is big enough.

    Hmm..

    It's not even a feature, it's a gimmick.

    Seriously, I see no situation where the edge is the only thing a user would be looking at to get their daily news leaders or whatever... Even in my belt clip, I have to remove the phone to swipe the edge and read it.
    Just because it's a gimmick for you doesn't mean it isn't a feature for someone else. Not everyone has the same use cases.

    No. I'm over the curved screen so next phone i'll be going with no curve. I had the s6 edge plus which i liked with the bigger screen but when i went to the s7 edge, im not in love with it so i think ill be going with the next note that hits the stores. Ive always loved notes.

    Only thing it sounds like the next note will have a curved screen as well-will you still buy?

    Wow, I've never had an Edge device so I didn't know about the colour thing! That's pretty sick! I need to tell my mom! Haha. She doesn't really use the "edge" part of her device but I feel like she'd like to know this.

    Hoping the S8 and Note 8 edges are more like the Note 7's less pronounced and steeper edges.

    Had the Note 7 from day 1 til 2nd recall and then got the S7E in exchange. I never had issues with accidental touches on the Note 7 at all and I have bunch regularly on the S7E. Some thicker cases help a little bit, but it seems like the N7 had less or zero sensitivity on the edges than the S7E does. Also the more pronounced edge on the S7E makes it tricky to tap the #1 on the far left side of the Google Gboard, which can be frustrating.

    I may try out this app that was suggested in this thread to see if that helps at all, but overall I do like the concept of the edge...

    I don't use the edge as of now, but since my next phone is going to be the N8, I don't think I will have a choice.
