Get to know the Edge
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge has a cool, new double-curve screen design, but Samsung wants to give you something to look at on that display.
A different display
Samsung created a completely different animal from the Note Edge's always-on interface.
Now, the S6 Edge is hidden from view until you slide out this menu.
Pick your pals
Choose five friends to add to this quick-contacts list. In typically clunky fashion, Samsung calls this feature "People Edge."
Each contact maps to a color.
Tap the contact bubble to send a text or place a call.
Messages appear at the edge of the display. If you've missed a call or alert, you'll see a sliver of tab in the contact's designated color.
Pull that out and you can interact with the alert.
Lefties can move the menu.
See, you can swap sides!
Pull it out
A closer look at the tab. Pull it out to see the friends menu.
Press the gear cog for settings.
Additional settings live in the Settings menu.
Opt in, opt out
There's a short list of options.
Missed notifications appear along the Edge display, but it won't link up to your apps.
Let it glow
If you turn the phone over on the table (say, to be polite during dinner), you can get it to light up the edge in your contact's color so you can see who's calling.
Glow, baby, glow
The light will pulse, then fade.
One more, for effect
The color is apparent when the edge faces you, and only works because of the screen's curve.
You can also use the Edge display as a night clock. Pick your hours in the settings.
