The Galaxy Note Edge: Just what does that curved edge display do?

Samsung_Galaxy_Note_Edge_Edge_Side_01_TA

The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is essentially the same phone as the Galaxy Note 4, but with a curved right edge display. This narrow display is utilized for quickly launching your most used apps, as well as displaying notifications, the weather, and the news. It can even light up on it’s own to let you know what notifications you have, thus saving precious battery life. Need a clock at your nightstand or a ruler? It can take care of both of those too.

The edge display can be customized to suit your needs and there is the hope that developers will also jump on board. It does add a $100 premium over the cost of the Galaxy Note 4, bringing it to a whopping $399 on contract.  Is it worth that extra money? My review is coming up, but I thought I would share how the edge screen works to help you make your decision. Check out my video after the break.
