Samsung Galaxy Note Edge hands-on: Phablet meets curved OLED

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge hands-on: Phablet meets curved OLED

Samsung promised curved OLED in a big way, and the Galaxy Note Edge delivers, taking the new Note 4 and bending the edge of its display for an altogether unusual approach to phablets. Building on the curved Super AMOLED concept Samsung showed off last year, the Note Edge turns its right bezel into a touchscreen ticker. Question remains, is this a revolution in form-factor or just a gimmick?

Samsung is no stranger to curved OLED, having already used gently-flexed displays on wearables, smartphones, and TVs, but according to supply chain whispers the company is now looking to sharper edges for its multi-sided screens.

Samsung is once again flaunting its display manufacturing prowess. Starting next month, the Korean manufacturer will be selling the UN78S9B, 78-inch UHD TV whose call to fame will be that it won't force you to choose between a flat screen and a curved one. This is because it can do both.

LG G Flex AT&T Review

With the AT&T version of the LG G Flex, we're getting another look at what it means to work with what this manufacturer calls the world's first curved, flexible display. While we did get a rather healthy look with our LG G Flex Review back in December, our US-based review here and now gives us the states-based vision.

LG G Flex hands-on: AT&T gets curvy

LG G Flex hands-on: AT&T gets curvy

Just because a smartphone can flex, doesn't mean it will on a regular basis. The LG G Flex does have the term in its title, but - rather similar to the S Pen in the Samsung Galaxy Note series - the amount of times we're seeing the feature in action is not one whole heck of a lot. Here LG goes gigantic - with a device that's curved and CAN flex, but does a lot better at describing its best uses when you first slide it into your pocket.

LG G Flex Review

LG G Flex Review

Every new niche has to start somewhere, and LG says the G Flex is the start of the flexible smartphone revolution. Why should our phones be flat when everything else around us is curved, so the company's theory goes, with ambitious dreams of folding handsets and collapsable tablets in the next decade. Today, though, the G Flex is paving the way: a 6-inch phablet with a premium price-tag and a sexy curve to its profile. Question remains, is this a gimmick or a true taste of tech to come? Read on for the SlashGear review.
