7 cool things the side screen on the Note Edge can do

7 cool things the side screen on the Note Edge can do
By now, most of you will know that Samsung released not one, but two new additions to its Note phablet line -- the standard Note 4, and the Note Edge with its auxiliary screen on the right side of its body. That latter one is sure to have caught your attention, and that's understandable considering the outlandish looks, but many of you may still wonder exactly what use you can put it to. Lucky for you, we were wondering the same thing, so as soon as we had some extra time, we revisited Samsung's demo area once again, and played around with for a while to test it out.

As we'd expect, Samsung has thought of a number of nifty things to do with it, and we'll be the first to admit that we haven't seen all it has to offer. What we do know already, for example, is that many of  the Note Edge's built-in apps, including the video and music players, camera, and others, take advantage of it. So, again, for example you can power on the camera app, and a number of settings and options will be shown on the edge, or, if you go into the music player, navigation controls will be streamed to it. You can also set-up a customized list of your favorite apps there, use the screen to keep yourself updated with the latest movements of your favorite stocks, or even use it as a ruler.

For a few other applications and some of the above, go right ahead into the slideshow below!
