The Galaxy Note Edge is useless if you're a lefty and don't want to hold your phone upside down.

I haven't used a stylus in many years. Are they really a benefit now, or just a gimmick?

Your constant complaining is far more annoying than the occasional article about Samsung hardware.
Hmm, I've read the first 20 or so comments, and people aren't (b)ing. What are you talking about?

I just don't get why the Note Edge has to be a separate phone again. Just release a flagship phone that features all your latest stuff instead of releasing a different phone for just about every different feature.

It's not symmetrical and half the information is landscape (weather) while the notifications are portrait.....

Just seems weird. But that's Samsung....king of creating smartphones to solve problems no one has.

So the edge makes it impossible to put a case on it so when you drop it, it's guaranteed to break it. Good idea.

Much more promising and useful devices than the next iPhone 6. Hard to beat the multi-tasking for the Note line.

To you and others who are saying this - what about this design is interesting? Merely because it's different?

I'm curious what benefits this would offer? What issues does this solve?

Say what you want about the products (i prefer Apple) but Apples keynotes really are better than others.

One side bended display!

Edge - not sure anyone would buy an expensive large screen mobile to look at only tiny portion of the display by hiding the larger.

Looks like no major design changes and I wont be surprised if Samsung misses another quarter of earning disappointment.

Metal frame is a good move. Beyond speed bump the mobile phones have reached a logical end unless iphone revolution 2.0 happens again by another player.

I like BB Passport

I feel like it's just being different, to be different.

Meh, The Verge will do anything for page views at this point in their lifespan. They are becoming another Gizmodo IMO.

Did you notice Rachel took this hideous Gear S on right before it was presented, and right away off once they moved on to the Oculus VR-clone?!

A Samsung keynote host took off the flagship smartwatch during the presentation!! She didn't even wait until after the show was over. And rightly so, because it completely blew up her otherwise nice dress.

No more explanations needed.

Looks good, but it is still plastic. Would be creaking in a month or two.
A shame.

i wonder what the battery life will be, its over a 1000 more than the rumors battery of the 5.5 inch iphone 6 right?

also that watch is way too bulky
Actually, only 300 mAh more. 5,5" iPhone 6 is supposed to have 2915 mAh battery.
