Samsung’s Note Edge features a 5.6-inch Super AMOLED display which is one of the sharpest in the market at present; it has a very crisp 524ppi pixel density. The primary screen has a 1600×2560 resolution. Both the main and the curved edge screens are protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It is the company’s first commercially produced mobile device that sports a curved, right side panel screen.
The curved right side panel effectively eliminates the need for a right-hand side bezel and can be used to display shortcuts for the most frequently used apps or features. When the screen is locked, it serves as a quick way of viewing notifications, date, time, and other customizable information.
The Galaxy Note Edge had generated a huge buzz in the tech world when Samsung introduced its curved edge screen display. But when the smoke has dissipated, the problem soon presented itself. The Note Edge’s curved edge screen is apparently made for right-handed users. It’s uncomfortable and inconvenient to use for a left handed person. When you hold the device in your left hand, your thumb won’t reach the other side of the display without one heck of a stretch.
To overcome come this problem, Samsung came up with a solution. Follow the following steps to make the handset much better to hold in your left hand.
Note – This feature is exclusively for Samsung Galaxy Note Edge handsets sold by T mobiles. Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
Step 1 At the bottom of any panel, press ‘ ^ ’ and then open the Edge screen settings.
Step 2 Select the “Rotate 180°” option.
You can now use your phone upside down with the edge screen on the left side, enabling lefties to swipe and use the curved part of the phone without reaching an unnatural position. Though, this isn’t a great permanent solution for people who regularly use the phone with just their left hand; this makes the handset much better to hold in your left hand.
