32 GB     See other variants reviews Score: 81.7 / 100

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is a very high quality Android cellphone released back in 2014, having a big size 5.6" screen, an exceptional 2700 megahertz Quad-Core processor, and 2 cameras, a 16 MP back camera and a 3.7 megapixels front camera. But it's time to get into a bit more details.

This device is available in 2 colors, black and white. Samsung made an excellent optimization job making this phone weight just 6.14 oz. This cellphone is just 5.96" long and 3.24 inches wide, but it's still able to fit a a 5.6" screen. This cellphone is thin and good-looking, with a thickness of just 0.33".

Samsung decided to design this phone using an extremely powerful Quad-Core CPU clocking at 2700 megahertz, packed into a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 APQ8084 system chip with a great 3 GB RAM memory. Graphic intensive apps and games often consume a lot of processing time, so this phone also also has a 500 MHz Adreno 420 graphic processing unit to take care of them, leaving the CPU free for other tasks. This phone comes with a huge 32 GB internal memory and an external SD slot, allowing you to store hundreds of apps and even the heaviest games available nowadays without even thinking about running out of space at all.

Samsung designed this cellphone with an astonishing 5.6" screen, and a 2560 x 1440 (Quad HD / 2K) resolution, giving this phone a great graphical experience. Its screen uses Super AMOLED capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch gestures.

This cellphone counts with wifi capability (which it can share with other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE-A) really quick connection type and also HSPA+ internet connection (which is a lower speed 4G variation) and 3G fast internet connection, using HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This device uses a Micro SIM card for GSM carriers and it works with both GSM and CDMA.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, a 16 MP back side camera and a 3.7 megapixels front side camera. this device's back side camera has a f/2.2 aperture so it can take awesome photographs even in low lighting environments. It also films 4K 3840x2160 videos at 30 frames per second. The camera also has a large number of amazing characteristics: flash, auto-focus, fast burst mode, digital image stabilization, optical image stabilization, smile detection shooting, face detection shooting, geo tagging and HDR mode.

This device also features lots of great features as Fingerprint ID, NFC (Near Field Communication), Infrared Blaster, Bluetooth (4.1) and GPS Navigation, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge packs a 3000 mAh massive Li-Ion replaceable battery providing this cellphone an impressive battery duration.

This phone may not be a good choice considering it is priced 335 dollars, and many similar phones are offerred cheaper than that. No matter if you will use it to play lots of games, are an amateur photographer, will use this device for work or need a cellphone majorly for internet broswing and social networks, this phone is the right choice for you.
