Samsung Galaxy Note Edge N915A, 32GB AT&T GSM UNLOCKED Android Smartphone (White)

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is a breath-taking Android cellphone released some years ago, in 2014, packing a high speed Quad-Core processor clocking at 2.7 GHz, a large 5.6-inches touch-screen, and 2 cameras, a 16 MP back-facing camera and a 3.7 mega-pixels front side camera.

Samsung decided to power this cellphone using an extremely powerful Quad-Core processing unit running at 2700 MHz, bundled in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 APQ8084 chip and a large 3 GB RAM. Graphic rendering often uses lots of processing time, so it also uses a 500 MHz Adreno 420 GPU to take care of them, leaving the CPU free for other tasks. A good advantage of this cellphone is the 32 GB astonishing internal storage and a slot for an external memory card, which allows the user to store lots of applications, games, songs, photos and videos without having to worry about filling it.

This phone is sold in two colors, black and white. This cellphone is extremely thin, being just 0.33" thick. Whereas this phone is just 5.96" long, it still manages to hold a 5.6" display. This phone feels much lighter than what you would expect from a phone this size.

This phone has a gorgeous 2560 x 1440 (Quad HD / 2K) 5.6-inches display, which makes it impossible to even see the pixels that compose the display. Its display uses Super AMOLED capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

This phone includes WiFi connectivity (which can be shared with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE-A) super fast connection type and also HSPA+ data connection (a lower speed 4G technology) and 3G fast data connection, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge uses a Micro SIM card for GSM connection and it can use both CDMA and GSM.

The Note Edge features two cameras, a 16 MP back facing camera and a 3.7 megapixels front camera. this cellphone's back facing camera lens has an aperture of F2.2 so it can take great photographs even in low-light environments. It also captures 4K 3840x2160 videos at 30 fps. This cellphone also includes a lot of useful features like flash, fast burst mode, auto-focus, optical image stabilization, digital image stabilization, smile detection shooting, face detection shooting, geo tagging and HDR mode.

The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge also features plenty of useful features such as Fingerprint Reader, NFC, Infrared Transmitter, Bluetooth (provides communication with other bluetooth devices, computers, and accessories) and GPS Localization, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This phone features a 3000 mAh long lasting Li-Ion replaceable battery that can keep this cellphone running for many hours, although you may find yourself looking for a place to charge it after some heavy use.

Samsung sells this cellphone for about 249 dollars, which is quite close to other similar devices. This device is definitely a great option for you it doesn't matter whether you you love taking photos, want it for work, need a phone to play games or will use it majorly for internet broswing and social networks.
