Samsung Galaxy S7 edge: Edge UX demo and features
posted by Nick T. / Feb 26, 2016, 3:33 AM
There are several very good reasons why one might want to get the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge instead of the Galaxy S7. First of all, the phone is bigger and carries a larger screen. Secondly, the dual-curved edge display is quite fancy and draws attention from afar. And thirdly, there's the new and enhanced Edge UX, which takes what we had on the Galaxy S6 edge and improves it dramatically.
Galaxy S7 edge acts like a hub with shortcuts to apps and contacts, among other features. But it is now wider, with room for more to fit into the edge panel. Speaking of edge panels, there is a multitude to choose from. Some are mostly informational, showing things like weather details, the latest headlines, sports game scores, and stocks prices. There are also panels acting like shortcuts to favorite applications and web bookmarks. And the Tasks edge lets you have shortcuts to specific modes inside apps, such as the Panorama mode in the camera, or the stopwatch in your Clock app.As before, Edge UX on the
And that, in a nutshell, is the Edge UX feature, found solely on the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. To see it in action, feel free to watch the video below, where we go through its menus, panels, and settings that are available.

- Camera 12 MP / 5 MP front

I'm a Sammy hater but I have to say this looks classy.

It is beautiful... unarguably the best design in phones... But still I am on G5, although its little ugly

I checked them out at BestBuy yesterday and the gold and silver phones are just way too glossy. The backs are mirror finished so you can imagine the kind of fingerprint magnets they are, although that doesn't matter to me because I use cases anyway. But I definitely liked the black version the best. It blends perfectly with the screen to make it so nice to look at, like a floating screen.

Yup.. G5 is a piece of innovation but design wise G2 is much better than G5..

It's not design only. The 3600 mAh is a huge advantage. Along with the stunning AMOLED display, fast wireless/wired chargin, Vulkan gaming API, water proofing, and even 64GB possible option

Yes, it has everything that I wanted in S6, an almost perfect upgrade. But why did they do away with the IR blaster, what could they have gained; it barely costs anything.

But it's crap grade lowest 304 stainless steel. If we are talking about pure high grade premium 904L stainless steel.

I heard S7 has a Magnesium alloy body (Aluminum + Magnesium). I doubt it has a stainless steel body, since it is highly unlikely that a large phone like S7 with a stainless steel structure can match the light weight of S7.

No phone on the planet has the most usable features, and the cleanest looking UI and easy to use vs the Galaxy S. The S shows what hardware work and actual though goes into making the phone awesome. Even though Samsung has made some mistakes over the years, none of the S models were terrible. Not even the S5 which was just simply hated by tech sites, but liked by lots of users. I think the S5 is still one of the coolest looking S models, next to the S II Plus and of course the top dog being the S6/7 edge and the S6 Edge+ models.

that's not multitasking if the main screen goes dark when you swipe the side...i seen transparency in the video but does it mean the main screen comes back into focus...that's the only way of multi tasking if not then it's just the regular swype over that's on ever phone
