As if the Galaxy Note 4 was not enough, Samsung now unveiled its fancy curved (on the edge) screen phone—Galaxy Note Edge. Since it is Samsung’s very first official attempt at a curved screen, let’s take a look at what separates it from the highly anticipated Note 4.
Design: Screen And Size
First things first—the Note Edge is any day better looking than the Note 4, all thanks to its super sexy curved screen. While the Note 4 looks strikingly like the (boring) Note 3, the Note Edge sports a fancy curved screen on the extreme right hand side. Also, since both the phones sport an identical 2560 x 1440 2K resolution AMOLED display, the curve on the Note Edge is just as illuminated and clear as the main front display. Apart from adding style to the handset, the curved display does a lot of other stuff as well. You can track your calories burned and steps taken, see the latest stocks and weather information. You can even display wallpapers on the curved surface if you wish to. The Note 4 has a 5.7-inch display with a 16:9 aspect ratio and the Note Edge has a slightly smaller 5.6-inch with a 16:10 aspect ratio. So, on the design front, the Note Edge trumps the Note 4.
The Note 4 will be made available in two variants—a 2.7 GHz quad-core (Snapdragon 805 chipset) and another with a 1.9 GHz Octa-core processor (Exynos 5433 chipset). The Note Edge on the other hand, will be available in only one variant, a 2.7 GHz quad-core. Both the phones will pack in 3GB RAM. So when it comes to performance, hardly any difference can be pointed out. Also, both the phones will run Android Kikat 4.4. So when it comes to performance, it is hard to point out differences.
Battery And Camera
The Note Edge is supported by a 3000 mAh battery, while the Note 4 has a Li-ion 3,220mAh battery. And that little difference hardly makes any major changes. Both the phones have super battery saver modes as well. As far as the camera is concerned, the note 4 has a 16MP rear and 3.7 MP front snapper units. The camera remains identical to the Note Edge.
So Which Is Better?
Since the price is yet to be released, we have taken that out of context. Both the phones pack in more or less the same specs and features, and the only major difference that can be spotted between the two is the screen. And since there is hardly any difference, it would only be a wise choice to go for the Note Edge. It simply looks better!
