Generally the phone got an outstanding positive response from the market. However it has a few cons. Firstly the edged display, while sleek and stylish, does not provide much value. It has caused the phone to fall from customer’s hands due to its glossy design. Customers have also complained about the price being too high but the price has since fallen down and currently it is very reasonable.
The premium build and design is an attractive component that, coupled with its state of the art specifications and functions, makes Samsung Galaxy Note Edge an outstanding phone for technology lovers.
