If we get an Edge and a normal Galaxy Note 7, which one would you prefer?
Word on the street is that, in order to avoid confusion in terms of branding, the next generation of Samsung's exalted Galaxy Note series will be called Note 7. There will be no Note 6, in other words. If rumors pan out, of course.

What's more interesting, however, is that after introducing the Note Edge variant alongside the Note 4, and after ditching the more extravagant model with the Note 5 generation, Samsung may now once again return to a double release with the Note 7 and a supposed Note 7 Edge—or whatever it ends up being called.

Now, we obviously can't confirm the authenticity of said teaser that sparked all the Note 7 Edge speculation, but that's not stopping us from polling you on the idea. Would you like an Edge variant with the upcoming Note-series refresh? Dual-edged or single-edged? Let everybody know by voting below and give your thoughts a voice in the comment section below!

If we get an Edge and a normal Galaxy Note 7, which one would you prefer?

Same here Dual edge actually makes the phone far less wide Which makes it much easier to use with one hand But I have pretty average hand size Dual edge 5.7" is still a bit too big for me to use with one hand comfortably I'd love a dual edge ~5.3"

But i think the dual edge also makes the screen to be damaged easily and the price of repair is higher than the flat one. My brother has S6 edge + and it broke after the first drop with a crazy shattered screen... it's just an opinion have a great day

Fair point But personally, I'm not worried about that I've never shattered my phone's screen I dont even have a case for my Nexus 5, just a glass screen protectors

But the s7 edge has like a 5.5 inch screen. Doesn't the note have to be larger than an s?

When I said "I'd love a dual edge ~5.3", I was taking about a phone in general, not neccessarily a Note You are right, the Note will be bigger

But then it's even longer and narrower, and a quarter of the screen is usable because it's round the bend. I'd actually prefer a 4:3 ratio! That has been the most useful in my pdas and phones over the years. On the s series, the edges are just quirky and showy, but they don't do anything that you couldn't do on a flat screen. If the new edge is like that on the galaxy note (4) edge, where it was a separate extra area that actually added to the experience without reducing the width of the main screen , then I'd consider it.

Flat based one please. How do you even think of creating a dual screen note samsung? On another note I think I might prefare this one though. Let's face it, the S pen isn't that useful anyways, I know must people who have the note don't use the S pen to write (its grossly inconvenient) except in front of people to show off. Infact they mostly forget its even there, it happend to me when I bought a NOTE 2. So hell, go with the dual edged note samsung, and make it one sexy beast. If not that I'm picking the MOTO Z in the fall, this would be my next choice for sure.

I prefer a flat one. Easier to write on it and a flat screen doesn't distort. But the dual edge looks great, makes it more ergonomical to hold and allows a better screen to body ratio.

There will only be a single version, dual edged version, not market specific, but from the manufacturer itself. Only Note 7 edge

Come on, everyone agrees that dual edge would look much better than the flat one. But if you're going to use the pen then the flat Note would be much better. How are you going to write notes with a dual edge screen??

Clearly not everyone, by the comments here. I think the edge screens look silly.

Regardless. Am I the only one who prefers a bigger Note? I mean 6 inches of QHD AMOLED screen goodness is very ripe for note taking.

Please make the edge(s) big like on the first note edge. All the advancements of the edge ux is now primed and ready to spread it's wings and flex it's muscles on the bigger edge screen. Imagine taking notes during a meeting and seeing your text messages scroll accross the edge not taking you away from your note taking or watching your favorite movie or TV show and notifications come accross the edge... The possibilities are endless!

I was against the edge devices for me, personally, until recently. I bought an S7 to replace my Note 5 and got an S7 Edge as a work phone. I'm really liking the edge better than I expected. I plan on getting the Note 6/7 when it's released. If there are 2 options Idk. Guess I'll use my 2 devices everyday and make a decision based on that.

I will be very disappointed if they don't release a flat version, that's the one I want.

I don't think it makes sense to package an S-pen with a curved screen. I suppose with a screen that large they could constrain the writing area to the flat portion. I'm just point out that writing on anything but a flat surface wouldn't be ideal. Plus I have all edge features turned off so I haven't fallen in love with edge widgets when I already have home screen widgets. I will use a "jump on demand" to try it out, assuming it isn't too massive.
