LIVE LIFE ON THE EDGE

Sam­sung Galaxy Note 4,

Galaxy Note Edge

An­droid fans watched the iPhone 6 launch with bleary eyes, hav­ing only just pulled

them­selves back to­gether after cel­e­brat­ing the ar­rival of both a new 5.7in Note and a clever-screened 5.6in Note Edge. Both have 2K screens, though the Edge’s ex­tra 160-pixel curved sec­tion gives it a slightly dif­fer­ent as­pect ra­tio on pa­per. In prac­tice, were you watch­ing a 2K video on your phone, that curved

edge would likely be used for video con­trols – just one of many uses, in­clud­ing no­ti­fi­ca­tions and a night clock. Both have a mighty 2.7GHz quad-core Snap­dragon 805 chip and 3GB of RAM, and both have a dou­bly sen­si­tive S Pen and op­ti­cal im­age sta­bil­i­sa­tion for their 16MP cam­eras. The Mar­mite leather-back de­sign has been re­fined, and the phone now has ac­tual metal edges. Must have been quite a party.
