Most new device launches go the same way: usually the press gets review units before they’re widely available, and we get to use them for a few days -or a week if we’re lucky- as we work on our review.
Then press day arrives. The embargo on media coverage lifts, and everyone posts their reviews and videos at the same time. It’s a huge frenzy, commenters go nuts, and it’s a giant explosion of frantic opinion-sharing activity.
For about … a day. And then it all goes away. Sure, there’s followup coverage as people find bugs and hidden features, but after that initial blast, not many people revisit the device to see how it feels a few months later, because everyone’s already focused on the next big deal coming down the pipe.
So let’s do something about that. Let’s see how we feel about devices when they’re not shiny and new anymore. This is After The Buzz.
The Galaxy Note Edge is definitely the ultimate Samsung smartphone. This device packs absolutely everything the company’s R&D department could throw at it, even though most of us know that’s not necessarily a good or useful thing. After more than three months since our full review and many of our comparisons, it’s time to re-visit the Note Edge and tell you which of these features you’ll actually use on a daily basis, and which were simply gimmicks. Welcome back to After The Buzz, Episode 42. Make sure you leave your experiences with the Galaxy Note Edge in the comments down bellow.
