Samsung sells everything, from TV's, fridges, washing machines and all things electronic... I don't know why people think they will go down hard like Nokia, when Nokia was just known for their mobile phone division while Samsung is known for everything. Samsung just has too many backups to keep the company alive.

The people having less knowledge screams such things.

SE accounts for a majority of Samsung revenue. They need it to succeed or everything else comes crashing down.

They do need it to succeed. But don't fool yourself, nothing will come crashing down at Samsung. Ever.

Considering its limited availability worldwide, high price and low production numbers, this is excellent.
Nice one Samsung.

nobody paying 800 for a note 4 with curved glass. gimmicky and pitiful numbers

630,000 disagree. It´s a niche device, like the SGS 6 or Edge will be. It´s not mainstream like the Note 4 or the SGS 6. And considering that it is only becoming available in many carriers around the world in the last month, this a reallyyyyy good number.

Are you that stupid? Or just plain ole dumb? The edge is a niche product that was release in limited quantities. This is more than shocking that they've sold so much out of the one million that was made. That's damn impressive if you ask me or anyone else. Stop with your BS already.

I.e in the uk you can only buy it from Samsung website for £700 or at carphonewh... For £730 or get it only on 1 contract network on the most costly plan (over £50) you can think off and only at again carphonewh, this is a very good number when you come to cost it is to buy, if the iPhone only sold like this even that phone will sell limited numbers. I ordered my edge from Samsungs website for £700, and now when I show it off all iPhone users go wow

Just like they did with the Note line, I think this Edge could work for them. Samsung has been pretty good in etching out that very unique item that everyone wants to copy.

I'm 1 of 630,000 and I do agree that it's really not that needed. HOWEVER, I wanted the option because, well, it's different, there's a "WOW" factor and to a lesser extent, it can be usefully for navigating through my apps.
I wish there were more apps developed for the Edge portion and it irks me that it doesn't allow me to view messages from non-samsung messaging platforms. Sure it will alert me that I received a message from say...Hangouts (default sms/mms msg app) or Whatsapp but I still have to pull down the notification drawer to see a preview and open the app to fully read the message.
I wish it would just scroll the message on the Edge portion as well as allow me to cycle through various messages from the different msg apps.
Is it worth it? If you're budget conscious, no. If you can afford the additional ~$120, why not.
