Samsung Galaxy Note Edge hands-on

186
Samsung Galaxy Note Edge

A Note 4 that trades the metal design for an interestingly-curved display

So say you like the size and S Pen functionality of the Note series, but want something a little different to set you apart from every other big phone out there. Well, here's Samsung's answer to that user group: the Galaxy Note Edge. It's a plastic-clad version of the Note 4, with all of the same great perks — QHD display, S Pen, 16MP OIS camera — of the latest generation, but with the added twist that it has an extended portion of the display that's curved over its right edge.

That's right, the Note Edge makes use of a curved AMOLED display, but rather than distributing the curve gently across the entire panel — akin to the Galaxy Round — it uses it sharply on just one edge. That rounded edge offers you another way to multitask, with small amounts of information occupying the rounded portion while the rest of the display shows a full-screen app.

It's a pretty awesome idea, and one that we haven't seen executed to this effect until now. Read along for our full hands-on with the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 hands-on!

Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Samsung doesn't reinvent the wheel with the Note 4, it just makes the ride even smoother

Spend a few minutes with the new Samsung Galaxy Note 4, and this much is clear: Samsung, wisely, is not rocking the boat. It's got a good thing going with its oversized smartphone, and it's going to keep on keepin' on. Now think about what you might have improved from the last phone in the Note line. Higher-resolution display? Better camera? More sophisticated hardware design? (And ditch the faux leather stitching?) Even more S Pen functionality? And maybe borrow some of the fun we've had in the Samsung Galaxy S5?

This, and more —be sure to check out the full specs — is what makes up the Galaxy Note 4.

Come along with us now as we take a brief tour of Samsung's (next) next big (and bigger) thing. This is the Galaxy Note 4.

Samsung Gear S hands-on

Samsung Gear S

Samsung's curvy Gear S smartwatch is its biggest — and coolest yet

So here we are with Samsung's sixth — yes, a full half-dozen — smartwatch in a little more than the space of a year. To wit: The Samsung Galaxy Gear, Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo, Gear Fit, Gear Live and, now, the Gear S. That's a whole lot of Gear.

This Gear, however, is unlike the other Gear(s). Well, OK. It's a whole lot like the other ones. It's running Tizen, the Android alternative enjoyed by all of Samsung's other watches save the Android Wear-based Gear Live. And it's got the same basic functionality we've seen on the other Gear watches — tell the time and date and weather and news and track fitness and heart rate show notifications and email and even make and receive Dick Tracy-style phone calls. Been there, done that.

The two things that make the Gear S stand out? It's got a curved display, and it connects to a cellular network on its own, just like your phone does. And, yes, it's a little larger than its siblings. And you know what? It's pretty darn cool.

Let's take a closer look in our hands-on with the Gear S.

Samsung Gear VR first look

Samsung Gear VR

Samsung's first shot at virtual reality, with some help from Oculus, is off to an interesting start

Some say that virtual reality is the next frontier in gaming, and Samsung is getting in on the ground floor with its just-announced Gear VR headset. Powered by Samsung's latest big flagship device, the Galaxy Note 4, the Gear VR provides a more immersive (albeit low-resolution) experience than you typical game on a big screen TV or even a theater by strapping a screen mere inches from your eyes.

Even when they tack a name on the end like "Innovator Edition," there's no doubt at this point that Samsung's getting serious about consumer-facing virtual reality with the introduction of the Gear VR. How this gets positioned, how much it costs and how quickly the content choices expand may make or break its initial release — read along and see what Gear VR has to offer at launch.
