Switch Between Left and Right Edge Screen on Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

Samsung surprised the world when it introduced the Edge screen on the Note 4 last year. Now, Samsung has garnered respect for applying the same concept to its latest flagship device, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge has not one, but two dual-edge screens. This means that both of the edge screens are able to display information (though not at the same time). By default, the edge screen on the right is activated. You can change this to show information on the left edge screen instead. If you want to find out how to do that, the article below explains how.

How to Switch Between the Left and Right Edge Screens

To be able to choose whether to display the Edge screen’s information on the left or on the right, follow these steps:

1.Go to your phone’s Home screen by pressing the Home button once.
