    Has anyone seen the edge notification feeds on the Note 7 ?

    I'd really like to know how they compare to the S7 Edge.

    Thank you !

    I did see this. I'm referring to the notification feeds that scroll directly on the edge -sports scores, notifications, etc

    I didn't know the S7 Edge had a scrolling display... I thought the Note Edge did. The Note 7's edge is so thin and the curve so sharp, I'm not sure how a scrolling display would work on it. I guess we'll find out in two weeks!

    It is too thin so if it does work it will be distorted and not the same legible angle as the S7E. The only apps shown so far use little side strips and that function is no different than side swiping with a flat display. Seems the only real function of the curve is to make the device thinner so can still claim 5.7".
