How does Samsung make Edge displays

Not in the mood for the edge display: should Samsung offer flat smartphones again?

Since the Galaxy S8, Samsung has given us no choice. Rounded display edges have become the norm - whether we want them or not. Should Samsung bring two variants back on the market? Take part in our survey.

Rounded or flat: what do you prefer?

Rounded displays are certainly no longer a novelty at Samsung. What began with the Galaxy Note Edge four years ago has continued to prevail. Until the Galaxy S7, however, consumers were faced with the choice of whether they wanted the standard or the Edge version. This has been different since the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 - a flat version is no longer available. The successor, the Galaxy S9, is only available with rounded display edges. With the Galaxy Note 9, the chances are also bad that there will be two variants.

The advantages of an edge display are primarily in the aesthetic area. The sides of the case are still there, but they are much less noticeable. Samsung is also trying to fill the newly gained space with software features. Users can design them more or less at their own discretion or just ignore them as best they can. There are also disadvantages, such as the problem of unsuitable screen protectors. Some users also find typing uncomfortable because they have to move their fingers further outwards. Videos also look better on a completely flat screen.
