After inventing the phablet and introducing it into the market, it was subjected to a lot of criticism. However it has gone on to become the most successful smartphone series on the planet. The company has incessantly tried to bring more and more innovative products and ideas into the smartphone industry, the latest of which being the curved display.
Although initially these curved edge smartphones had a few stumbles, now these have gone on to become quite the success. Samsung has also added a few features like edge notification, edge quick controls and more, making the curved edge much more useful than it ever was before.
