Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is a top-level phone launched in 2014, packed with an enormous 5.6-inches multi-touch display, an exceptional Quad-Core processing unit ticking at 2700 MHz, and 2 cameras, a 16 megapixels back facing camera and a 3.7 mega-pixels front-facing camera.

Samsung did a really good job making the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge as lightweight as 6.14 oz. Whereas the Note Edge is only 5.96" long, it's able to fit a a 5.6" display. The Note Edge is just 0.33" thick, making its way into the thinnest phones podium. This cellphone is available in two different color options, black and white.

Samsung decided to power this phone using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 APQ8084 system chip, including an extremely fast Quad-Core processor running at 2.7 GHz with a large 3 GB of RAM. Graphic rendering usually uses lots of CPU time, so it has an extra Adreno 420 graphics processing unit working at 500 megahertz to improve overall performance. A good advantage of this phone is its astonishing 32 GB internal storage memory and a slot for external memory cards, which allows you to store tons of applications, games, photos and videos without worrying about how much storage is left.

Samsung packed the Note Edge with an astonishing 5.6" display, and a resolution of 2560 x 1440 (Quad HD / 2K), which makes all images and videos look completely perfect. Its display uses Super AMOLED capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.

This cellphone has two cameras, a 16 mega-pixels back camera and a 3.7 MP front facing camera. Its back camera lens has a f/2.2 aperture so it can take impressive photographs even in low light situations. It also captures videos in 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 frames per second. This camera also includes a lot of interesting features like auto-focus, flash, digital image stabilization, fast burst mode, face detection shooting, optical image stabilization, HDR mode, smile detection shooting and geo tagging.

This cellphone counts with a great 3000 mAh Li-Ion replaceable battery that can keep this cellphone running for several hours, but you may need to charge it if you use it heavily.

This phone provides wi-fi connectivity (and it can share it with other devices as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A (4G) super fast connection type and also HSPA+ connection type, which is a lower speed 4G type or fast 3G internet connection, over HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This phone works with a Micro SIM card for GSM carriers and it can use both GSM and CDMA networks.

This device also includes many interesting features like Bluetooth (4.1), Fingerprint ID, GPS, Infrared Transmitter and Near Field Communication (NFC), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This phone is a great option for everyone considering it's an awesome device and it costs only $ 400. No matter if you will use it mostly for social networks, are looking for a device for gaming, want this device to take many photographs or want a work phone, you will definitely be very pleased with this cellphone.
