- The Galaxy S6 Edge is different from other mobile devices, in that Samsung's now added an Edge screen to both sides. This gives the 6 Edge the ability to take all of its great Edge features such as People Edge, Night Clock, and other systems, such as Feeds, and put them right on the side of the device. The Edge areas can now be customized to hold up to five favorite contacts. Also known as People Edge contacts.
These can easily then be followed by using colors and color coded tabs, to locate information about your favorite contacts, which you can see here, along the edge of the screen. When you get a notification from new or favorite contact, all you have to do is pull that tab out, review the information, and you can see here, I missed a text from mom, and then quickly reply back, by either calling or text messaging. If you prefer these features to be on the other side of the screen, let's go ahead and change those.
Simply access your settings menu by dragging from the top, tap settings. Let's locate the Edge screen option, right here. We'll tap it, and what you're looking for is an option at the bottom, called Edge screen position. So, I'm going to go ahead and move this to the left hand side. When I'm ready, press the home key, and what you'll see is, my notifications are now on the left hand side. The 6 Edge comes with a wide variety of features that make it a really unique product.
