I don't think the specs you mentioned sre correct. The charger is not your usual charger, it is the Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 type. Also on my Sprint G Flex 2 it shows only 2gb of ram not 3.

I've seen numerous reviews about the Note Edge on numerous carriers, but yet to see one for the Sprint version. There is one finally and I have to say it has to be the most thorough review of a Sprint Note Edge yet. I bought it when it first came out and it still impresses me each day. The review is spot on.

Are you referring to the actual spinning icon in the notifications area or the service? 
If you mean the icon, then yeah, its a bit annoying at first, but I got over it.
If you mean the service, then that depends on the area. Over here in NYC I have no issues whatsoever. I get a constant signal. Out in Long Island there are some parts that less than ideal but I go out there every 3 weeks and I've noticed the connections is getting better every time. Out in NJ, the same thing. 
As I mentioned in a previous posting, I did a signal comparison between the Nexus 6, Samsung Mega, Note 4 and Note Edge. The Nexus 6 was slightly better on band 41 and the Note Edge better on Band 25/26, even more so that the Note 4 and Mega. Even thought the FCC documentation tests show the opposite. That shows that real world testing vs lab testing can produce different results. So for me Sparks is working great on a great device.

As usual, your reviews Lisa are on point. Finally someone gets it. Too many claiming its a gimmick, or priced too much, or that it has plastic sides, but as you mentioned it does bring alot more to the table. Only about $5 more on carriers monthly payment plans, metal sides and more unique. With the sdk open to developers, I can see that side panel used for so many things. That drawer pull for the 180 degree feature is a nice feature. The only thing going against it is the bit smaller battery, but with fast charging it is not a big deal.
There is one thing I wish the video would have covered and that is with the multi-window panel and the curved area. With the right side being curved with those embedded apps, does the multi-window panel show up in that curved area or to the left of the curved area? 
i also noticed that on this T-Mobile version that the carrier placed their own apps in that curved area. i wonder if that is the same for other carriers.

With this being a "so-called" limited edition, I feel that it will be quite popular and will lead to either a 2nd generation with both sides curved or merged into the Note 5 version.

I actually had a hands on with both the Note 4 and the Note Edge at a local Best Buy Samsung Experience store and I was impressed with the Note 4 but really impressed with the Note Edge. It is a tiny big wider than the Note 4 but you hardly notice it and that side screen is something I like. I see developers utilizing that side for all sorts of things.

My first encounter with N-Trig was with the Lenovo Thinkpad (Android) tablet and I liked it. The pen on the Flip was way better. (Actually better than any previous N-Trig pens I tried), but I feel that the wacom pens on the Samsung Note 2, 8, 10 devices as well on the ATIV Tab 5 felt way better.  

btw, I'm surprised you still have the Sony Flip. Mine has acquired the dreaded fan noise. Anyway, good video (as always).

I usually (for most of my devices) keep the same android background (left pic), but I'm now using the Indian Android background (thanks to Evron Mason and Wen-JR over at Deviantart)

Very good video. I've noticed that everyone keep saying it is plastic but Samsung states the Edge sides are also metal (at least on the sides not with the curve.

The three edges actually feel like metal (slightly cold to the touch) but then it molds along the curved edge in a manner that can not be metal (it feels more like plastic on this edge too). It could be a metal/plastic hybrid frame or a metal veneer though. The inside edge of the 3.5mm headphone jack is white and looks/feels like plastic however, so pretty sure the frame is plastic. Unfortunately :(

Damn. Decisions decisions...It's a toss up between the white and black Note 4. I wonder if the powered coated aluminum magnesium border would loose its color over time. If so then I guess the black one, if not then I really like the white colored one. But then if one throws in the Note Edge, then I might just choose the Edge. As for the S5,I wonder why even have that in the line up at times. At the rate the S5 keeps getting bigger every year, they should just make a Note Mini instead to replace it..

Well I ended up with the black note. Way smaller than my Mega but so many features. Love it.

Darn, so much for my dream of using Android full time and replace my Windows laptop/desktop. Never realized that the system doesn't allow for multi-display (monitor) support. aarrggh 
I wanted to replace my recent dying Win OS laptop with the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 since to me it's one of the best Android devices out there. Its large enough yet portable. Add a mouse, keyboard and viola. Love that it has a really good stylus (I previously used numerous wacom S-pens on  other Note devices both Windows and Android and I love them). It also has one of the best Microsoft Office type replacements I've seen, I currently have the Hancom office on my Note 8.0 and it's the best Office replacement one yet. But the issue of not being able to use multiple monitors on an Android system is really what stopping me from replacing a Windows laptop with one by Android. It is quite annoying.
Although the 12.2 does have multi-window support,(4 of them), which is provided by IXONOS, its innovation partner. (and I feel that is a step in the right direction). Samsung didn't include the multi-display capability by the same company. That would have made it a true multi-display/multi-window laptop replacement. 
So for now, that dream is just that a dream. 
Hopefully the 2nd generation Note 12.2 will include the IXONOS multi-display.

I originally place this review under Olympic by mistake. The Olympic diner is no more. It is now called The Classic Diner and everything from the decor, food and service has been awesome. Due to its unique location at the intersection of Lefferts Blvd, Myrtle and Jamaica Avenues, they have two 8 car parking lots on each side of the building. The decor inside and out does remind me of a classic contemporary diner. The building has a big clock that can be seen a block away. The food are big portions for the price which is not expensive. Kudos to the chef which offers classic dishes as well as unique tasty ones. Each day has specials and on Friday they offer the best Greek Lemon Chicken soup. Been here for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Sundays mornings are busy so go early. Highly recommended.
