Did you know that only one of the two edges on Samsung Galaxy S6 edge can be actively used?

The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge's thunder is its display that curves on both sides for a futuristic effect that has never been available on a phone so far.
But did you know that only one of the edges can be actively used for the signature Samsung features like People Edge (quick access to your favorite contacts), Edge Lighting (where the edge lights up when you get incoming calls, messages, or other notifications), and Information Stream (the news/events ticker functionality)?
You get to pick which edge to actively use: the right or the left oneTo be perfectly clear, the screen of the Galaxy S6 edge flows smoothly over to both edges, but the unique active functionality that is associated with the edge can only be accessed via one of the edges. You get to choose which edge would be the active one: the left or the right one, depending on whether you’re a rightie or a leftie.
This interesting little fact is just a part of the big picture of the Galaxy S6 edge, and that picture is illuminated in much more detail in our just-released S6 edge review. Feel free to take a look at it to learn more about Samsung’s new curvy 2015 flagship.

Don't be super judgmental . There is a lot of brands and each with thier fans which makes this fans not aware of everything in other brands I am sure a lot of people on the site don't know each detail of each smartphone including you. I know about the one side notification but I didn't see how it worked until I open this article which is nice. There is also different level of knowledge in every aspect of life. Even professors may forget or not know something simple or new.

I agree... I try to stay informed, but it shocks me the way Reviewers, not readers, actually ignore about devices that they are testing... I recently read a comparison between the Z3 and S6 and the "author" stated that the Z3 had big bezels... (in reality the Z3 has a better screen-to-body ratio of 70.9% vs 70.7% on the S6)... and these type of comments are really annoying because you expect them to do their jobs and to do it fair, but that usually does not happen. Anyway, I agree, I didn't know about this particular fact, but that doesn't make me unworthy of tech sites o_O

That's unfortunte that only one edge can actively work, I thought they would want to build upon the functionality of the Note Edge by adding that extra screen real estate. Still a really nice, and future-proof device, maybe in the future Samsung will update the software to support both edges.

There is an option to make the notifications appear on either left or right side. may be if you are left handed, swiping the notification from left to right is easy.

For the people who hold their phones in their left hand, likely because they are left-handed, such as myself. Unlike the Note's Edge, the S6's Edges can be used regardless of which hand is used to hold the phone. I am sure there are a great many people who will appreciate that, again, such as myself.
