Samsung Galaxy Note Edge
The Galaxy Note Edge is an experiment, yet it's one that's able to stand on its strengths, despite any reservations you might have about that curved display. In short, you get all the benefits of the Galaxy Note 4, but with a hardware twist to set it apart. Unfortunately, there's that price.

Small problem battery life and I think it's little expensive..P.S sorry on my Eng. :-)Engadget Reader100November 17, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I am absolutely in love with this phone. I have a history of using Samsung phones (S2 and S4) and was really excited picking this phone up. It has exceeded my expectations. I picked it up on launch day and have been using it for approximately 3 days so far.I love the way this phone looks to begin with. You have to see the bent glass in person to really get a sense of how cool it looks. Photos and videos so far have not captured it very well. The display is crystal clear bright and the bend around the edge really sets it off.I have found the edge to be extra helpful. I do not need to use my notification tray as much anymore as everything is now on the edge. I can see how many emails and missed calls I have while not leaving the screen I am currently on. Also, incoming phone calls are displayed on the edge and you swipe to receive/dismiss them. I bought the portfolio case to go on the back and have enjoyed checking my notifications without waking the whole screen.
