Verizon (SM-N915VZ)     See other variants reviews Score: 81.7 / 100

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is a very high quality phone released in September 2014, equipped with a 2700 MHz Quad-Core processor, a really big 5.6-inches display, a 16 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 3.7 mega-pixels front facing camera.

The Note Edge is only 5.96" long and 3.24" wide, but it manages to hold a 5.6 inches screen. This phone is just 0.33 inches thick, taking it to the thinnest cellphone's category. Samsung has made a really good design job making this phone weight just 6.14 oz. Samsung made this cellphoneavailable only in two different colors: black and white.

The Note Edge includes a high-tech 5.6 inches screen with a 2560 x 1440 (Quad HD / 2K) resolution, which makes everything look perfect. Its screen uses Super AMOLED capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

Samsung decided to power the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge using an extremely powerful 2.7 GHz Quad-Core processing unit, bundled in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 APQ8084 system chip and a big 3 GB of RAM. Graphic intensive tasks generally eats a lot of CPU time, so this cellphone counts with an additional Adreno 420 graphic processing unit speeding at 500 MHz to help the processor with those tasks. This phone counts with a 32 GB awesome internal storage and a slot for an SD memory card, allowing the user to install hundreds of applications and even the heaviest games currently available without worrying about how much storage is left.

This cellphone is equipped with two cameras, a 16 mega-pixels back side camera and a 3.7 MP front facing camera. Its back side camera has a f/2.2 aperture so it can capture great photographs even in low light environments. It is capable of shooting videos in 4K 3840x2160 at 30 frames per second. This device also counts with lots of useful features like auto-focus, flash, fast burst mode, optical image stabilization, digital image stabilization, face detection shooting, HDR mode, smile detection shooting and geo tagging.

This phone features wifi connectivity (which it can provide to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A 4G super quick data connection and also HSPA+ connection type (which is a lower speed 4G technology) and fast 3G connection type, over HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. The Note Edge works with a Micro SIM card for GSM connection and it can use both CDMA and GSM carriers.

The Note Edge also features a wide range of interesting features as Fingerprint ID, Near Field Communication (NFC), Infrared Blaster, Bluetooth (enables communication with other devices, computers, and accessories) and GPS, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge counts with a 3000 mAh inmense Li-Ion removable battery that provides this cellphone a marvelous battery duration.

This device may be a little bit overvalued considering it costs 600 dollars, while some similar phones cost a bit less than that. The Note Edge is the correct option for you it doesn't matter whether you are an amateur photographer, will use it as a social phone, are looking for a cellphone for work or are looking for a phone to play tons of games.
