The Samsung Galaxy Edge has some great features for anyone looking to upgrade their current model. The wider screen wraps around at the edges (hence the name), allowing for certain features not available in earlier models. You can color code your contacts, so even if the device is face-down, you can see who is calling you. Though this may not be something everyone desires, it certainly sets it apart from the herd.

The screen itself is a nice size: large enough to make browsing the web and looking at pictures and videos easy, without being unwieldy. The interface is smooth and intuitive, and it comes with some of your standard apps already in place (calendar, email and the GooglePlay store for anything else you need).
