The Samsung Galaxy S8 will be a very fine smartphone indeed, but alongside it we’re expecting to see another device – the S8 Edge. Both smartphones should be great, but if you’re not sure which one to pick up, read our information below. We’ll be listing some Samsung Galaxy S8 Edge pros and cons to help you decide whether Edge is better or worse for you.
Pro: Edge Apps
Out of all of the Samsung Galaxy S8 Edge pros and cons the biggest thing that stands out is that the Edge adds some extra functionality. With the S8 Edge there will hopefully be a few new things that you’ll be able to use the curved display for. Typically, the Edge display has been used for displaying notifications and call information in the past but there is a lot of potential to use it for other quick information.
Because of the way the Galaxy S8 Edge display will be curved, it will become much easier to view content and important notifications from a distance – notifications can be viewed from almost any angle and you won’t have to be standing over the device to see any details about them. This is certainly an added convenience feature that would not be available on the standard Galaxy S8.
The first con to talk about is of course the price difference. The pricing of the Galaxy S8 Edge will always be higher than the standard S8 because more expensive technology has been used on the display. Whether or not this con is enough to deter you from picking up the Edge variant comes down to one simple question. If you could add the ‘Edge’ feature to your current phone for the price difference between the standard S8 and the S8 Edge, would you spend that money? If you would, then certainly go and pick up the S8 Edge! If you’re not so sure, the standard Galaxy S8 may be a better choice.
Since the Galaxy S6, the Edge variants have always been a little less comfortable to hold in your hand. The devices look absolutely stunning but when it comes to actually using them, the curved displays do dig in a little. Hopefully this comfort issue will be fixed in the Samsung Galaxy S8 Edge but we can’t deny that we’re a little worried about the comfort.
