Has Samsung lost it’s ‘Edge’? – #samsung, #edge, #galaxy, #galaxyedge

The new Samsung Galaxy Note Edge will release in China, then the USA.

This new sleek curvy glass device has captured our interest, not all of it good, more bad than good actually.

The initial look has the wow factor but that wears off quick enough. There have been comparisons to this and the iPhone 4 with the metal side and the front and back glass.

They gave up on a lot of features when they made this:

  • smaller capacity battery
  • no longer has a water resistant rating
  • no external storage support
  • no removable battery

In the end they went to Wow with design but my 2 cents would be summed up in one word “Gimmick”.
