Just couple of months ago, Samsung presented very unusual smartphone i.e. Samsung Galaxy Note Edge. The new device from Samsung is powered with the most advanced hardware plus unique display.

Galaxy Note Edge

Galaxy Note Edge has 3GB RAM, Snapdragon 805 chipset and quad-core amazing processor. Apparently, this is as strange results in some performance benchmarks related to the firmware flaw: it is obvious, its non-standard functionality expected to work, in fact, two screens, enters into a contradiction with some applications.

 

In general, should not be taken as benchmarks defeat Galaxy Note Edge, but we must be prepared for surprises in real games. In the test performance of MHL interface monitor ViewSonic VX2363, supports direct MHL-connection (in the version 2.0) with a passive adapter cable with connector Micro-USB to HDMI. Recall that Samsung is at the physical layer implemented its version of this interface. As a result, for connecting an external device to MHL need to use special adapters or adapters to connect the MHL standard through unpretentious passive adapters.

 

In this case, using the proprietary adapter Samsung, wherein output MHL carried by a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels at 60 frames / sec. When portrait smartphone display output to the screen is done in the same portrait orientation, with the image on the monitor is inscribed in the edge of the screen height, and left and right output wide black borders. When the smartphone landscape orientation image display on the screen is done in landscape orientation, with the image on the monitor is inscribed in the edge of the screen height, but on the sides to agree on the output screen formats rather narrow black bars.

 

Sound on MHL output and has a good quality. In this case, at least multimedia sound through the speaker of the smartphone is not output and adjusting the volume buttons on the body of the smartphone. Connected via MHL smartphone is charging.

 

When watching movies and videos in Galaxy Note Edge, artifacts caused by uneven interlace and frame dropping or not visible at all, or the number and will not noticeably affect the comfort of viewing.

 

On the criterion of the quality of the output frame video playback on the screen of the device is good, because the frames (or group of blocks) can be derived from a more or less uniform alternating intervals and without skipping frames. When playing video files with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) on your smartphone’s screen image proper video output exactly the wide edge of the screen. Picture clarity is high, but imperfect, since by interpolation to the resolution of the screen can’t escape. However, for the sake of the experiment can switch to one to one pixel, the interpolation will not be there, but it was particularly PenTile – vertical world through the pixel is in the mesh, and the horizontal – slightly greenish. It’s on the test realms, described artifacts on realistic training available. Displayed on the screen brightness range actually corresponds to the standard range of 16-235 – in the shadows just a couple shades merge with black, but in the light displays all shades of gradation.

 

It was all about the working on Galaxy Note Edge and supported features. But it is not something new in the market; Samsung engineers have to do something interesting to bring another revolution with the next launching devices like Samsung Galaxy S7.
