    Owner of a Note 4 here, really really considering swapping it out for a Note 4 Edge. I'm curious as to feedback and experiences using the N4E versus the N4. I'm also considering the S6 edge, but smaller screen, lack of stylus, and arguable less useful edges are making this a remote choice.

    well i'm going to be selling mine i think before the fall. it has annoyed me ever since 5.0 arrived.

    it is so laggy now and the pages take ages to move.

    S6 edge is lightening quick and believe it or not has better battery life than my note 4 somehow,.

    i do like the bigger screen and i think i will be buying the iphone 6 plus S when it's out...never thought i would go back apple again but i think i will now. still have samsung devices but i will be rocking both.

    I wish I didn't pass on the Note 4 Edge. I wanted to see how productive a true edge screen was on a daily basis.

    I still use mine along with my Note 4. My Note Edge is no longer activated though because I use the Note 4 and 6+ on my T-Mobile two line plan now.

    I tried Lollipop on the Note Edge for a few days and then went right back to KitKat where it is still at today.

    I'm curious, why have you chosen the 4 over the 4 edge?

    Biggest reason is because the Note Edge has the power button on top and because of that, it has a problem of turning on while in my pocket. My old Nexus 4 did the same thing with it's button being on top. I hate using pattern unlock or codes and the finger print scanner is unreliable.

    I have never had the Note 4 or any iPhone turn on while in my pocket.

    Interesting. I turn my Note 4 on constantly but mostly when putting the phone in and taking it out of my pocket, my finger always hits the power button on the side. I've always lamented the power button on the side, but at the same time I have tried the Note 4 edge and seems the power button on top is a stretch to reach.

    Thanks for the feedback!!
