Galaxy Note Edge's features, performance, reviews

Galaxy Note Edge's camera specs

Also, Galaxy Note Edge has an 7 MP front camera, which is an average figure for a smartphone camera. It is good enough for taking selfies, but you may be a little dissatisfied when you need to take a group photo or print your photos.

Galaxy Note Edge's battery performance

The battery performance of the Galaxy Note Edge is 3000 mAh, so it has a relatively large capacity. Compared to other smartphones, the battery life of the Galaxy Note Edge is good. At this amount, you will not feel stressed even if you are on the internet and Twitter for a long time. Even when playing a game or watching a movie on the go, you can do so comfortably without needing to be conscious of the battery. However, some caution is necessary when watching movies or playing games for too long.

Galaxy Note Edge's size

The Galaxy Note Edge has a width of 3.2 inches (82.4 mm), a length of 6.0 inches (151.3 mm), and a thickness of 0.3 inches (8.3 mm). At this size it would feel a bit difficult to operate with one hand. In addition, the weight of the Galaxy Note Edge is about 174 oz (174 g). You can feel some weight when holding it in one hand. You might feel tired if you operate it for a long time.

Assessing the overall ease of holding the Galaxy Note Edge, it has some difficulties but if you use it based on its strengths and weaknesses it will not cause many issues.

Galaxy Note Edge's screen

Galaxy Note Edge has a 5.6 inch display. It is fairly large and has a good presence. Photos, videos, and games will really enjoy this screen estate. It is also suited for productivity use such as creating a business document.

Galaxy Note Edge has a very high-quality screen and any graphical content that you enjoy, including videos and games, will be displayed clearly.

Galaxy Note Edge's CPU specs

With the 2.7GHz×4(Quad core) for processing power, the Galaxy Note Edge has high performance and you will not feel any stress using the vast majority of apps. Even among all smartphones released to date, it is one with quite a high level of performance. Even relatively heavy 3D games can be played with hardly any feeling of stress.

With 3GB of RAM, the Galaxy Note Edge has a sufficient amount. Very occasional cases of insufficient RAM do occur, but with this sort of amount of RAM, it will rarely be the cause of feeling any stress.

Evaluating the overall speed of operation of the Galaxy Note Edge, it is a smartphone in the high-end category and can almost always be used without stress. However, if you want smooth and comfortable usage in heavy apps like 3D games, caution is necessary.

Galaxy Note Edge's storage size

The data storage capacity of the Galaxy Note Edge is 64GB, and while it is enough for taking photos, it might feel insufficient for those who often shoot videos or who install many games.

The Galaxy Note Edge is compatible with SD cards, so it is possible to increase the capacity easily. Therefore, you probably do not need to be concerned with the storage capacity.
