Imagine you can now tell the time and weather without even swiping the main screen of your phone. That is the latest the Galaxy Note Edge has to offer this time. Available in Charcoal Black and Frost white color variants at select stores at approximately Rupees 64,900, the Note Edge has definitely taken Samsung to a whole new level. This new model has a screen which allows you to watch films in high definition and carry your mini television wherever you want.

A smooth curvy model that this is, there are infinite possibilities that this phone can explore and also for other smartphone models that favor such technological advancements.

However, if you are curious as to how to use the right-edged curve for notifications and app controls, the phone can be flipped over in the horizontal position to make the curved side appear on your left side. The rounded edge acts like a second screen and you can get quick access and updates especially when you are in a meeting.What you normally see at the top of your android phone is displayed here at the sides.

Designed with a powerful processor, your Galaxy Note Edge will never hang and function efficiently while multi-tasking with various applications open. Now watching a movie would be an even more captivating experience as all the apps, widgets and controls are pushed to one end of the screen, you have a larger screen to view the movie horizontally as it bends over to the edge.

To keep your health in check this phone even has a heart rate monitor and blood oxygen sensors. So it will be of good use to many heart patients in India. The camera features extensive low-light benefits and sharp, crisp and colorful pictures. The icon on the smart phone that functions as the heart rate monitor also doubles up as a push button for clicking selfies. It looks far more stylish and elegant than the Note 4, with a 5.6 inch screen.

The Galaxy Note Edge is an experiment, yet it’s one that’s able to stand on its strengths, despite any doubts you might have about that curved display. While it is easy to use per se, the Galaxy Note Edge still is not a phone you can master overnight. Both its irregular shape and wraparound Edge display require you to navigate this handset in a unique manner as opposed to any other phone. In short, you get all the benefits of the Galaxy Note 4, but with a hardware twist to set it apart. Unfortunately, there’s that price that you have to look into.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
