Like its name, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus comes with an even longer list of capabilities. Along with inheriting all the features of its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, it has a few of its own tricks to boot. It’s a wonder why the Galaxy Edge Plus doesn’t have any of the Galaxy Note functions yet they are practically the same size. Let’s enlighten you on some of the Edge tricks you might or might not know about.

1. Choose your favorite contacts for quick access

Referred to as the People Edge, this allows you to add five contacts which appear as five round bubbles which are shortcuts to your contacts.

To set it up: Go to Edge screen Settings

Click on the People edge to turn it ON

Tap on My People, then add the contacts you want as you customize them by assigning colors for each or putting them in the order you choose.

2. Shortcuts to your  apps via Edge Screen

To set it up: Go to the Settings in your phone, the Edge Screen Option

Click on Apps Edge, if it’s set OFF then switch it ON

Tap Add (+) application and select the application you want

To put them in an order you want, tap on EDIT in the top right corner; and that is it. Now you can swipe away from the Edge Display to get easier access to your Apps.

3. Edge Lighting for Notifications

This feature only applies to the contacts in People edge that you may have already set up.

Simply, go to Settings, Edge Screen option

Click on Edge Lighting and set it for ON.

4. Set a Side for the Edge Display

By determining the side you want your display to be on, you choose where you will be able to access all the tricks you set up. You can only choose side but could always change it later.

Go to Settings, then Edge Screen

Scroll for the Edge screen position

Now select the Edge Screen side you prefer

You can now choose your desired placing for the Edge screen tab, which opens you up to the Edge screen menu.

5. Get News, Weather and Twitter updates on the Edge Display

This is a neat feature called the Information Stream; this is especially handy when your screen display is off. Get your weather, news, scores of all your favorite games and more on your Edge screen. Just slide your finger on the display’s edge to see the news stream.

Simply, Tap on your Edge screen in the Settings Tab.

Click on the Information Stream to switch it ON

Enable, Disable or Download more feeds on the Manage Feeds option

In the Edge Screen Timeout choose how long you want the screen to stay on.

To have your weather stream information active, ensure that the Samsung weather widget is on the Home Screen.

6. Send quick replies to your favorites while your Phone is face down

Reject incoming calls or just send a prewritten text message by simply pressing your finger for two seconds on heart rate sensor (under the LED flash), while the display is face down.

To set it up: Go to Settings on the Edge Screen

Click Edge lighting then select Quick Reply to switch it ON

To customize, simply tap on the preset message at the bottom.
