Samsung Galaxy Note Edge vs LG G3

One of the most compelling smartphones of late, the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge brought a fresh wave of innovation to the smartphone industry with its novel, unorthodox display that overlaps the right side bezel and provides a whole new functionality approach. But how does this undoubtedly niche device fare against the first smartphone from a well-known manufacturer to sport a pixel-rich Quad HD display, the LG G3?...

The edge would've looked a lot better if they made it wrap both ways. It just looks off with curve on one side.

They are experimenting, if that design is practical a phone with it will eventually be made.

LG G3 for me solely for that fact that it doesn't run touchwiz.

The G3 for ATT is $50 on contract at Amazon. That's about a $530 subsidy. It's a very nice phone for that price.

The G3 has a higher rating.... I think that the note edge should rate as high as the note 4.

The "edge" is an interesting innovation, but it depends on app support to really show its value. The review of the Edge noted that the app support was weak. So basically you have a phone that has a unique feature that is not well supported but sacrifices battery life, usability, and toughness. This is a lot of loss for some potential down the road gain. The Edge shouldn't rate as high as the Note. The Edge should have some sort of "innovation star" that the Note 4 doesn't get as the Note 4 is just like the Note 3 but with some incremental improvements.

Exactly. Although it is very interesting idea, is more unique than the phone off of which it is based (and that phone's predecessor) and has some potential... It simply doesn't have much to take advantage of that extra screen (as of yet); and is inherently compromised because of its design. To be fair though, I think Samsung is using this phone as a test-bed to see how exactly they'll implement curved and, eventually; flexible displays on coming devices. If they're smart, they'll also keep note of whatever ideas come up via third-party apps and what the general positive and detrimental remarks about the phone's usefulness are from their customers. I'm fairly sure this is just a starting point for them. At least I hope so.

G3 @ $599 vs Note 4 at $949, based on that alone you're getting better bang for the buck
