People who have seen the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and held it in their hands might be inclined to think that it's perhaps the world's most gorgeous smartphone. This impression is brought on largely due to the curved display with extremely thin bezels. This same aesthetic design however, seems to be interfering with the experience of using the device, according to some users. The S7 Edge does not have much of a bezel to keep your palm from touching the curved edges of the display and this is where the problem lies.


There have been reports that when the palm is indeed touching the curved edges, it is invoking unintentional touch responses from the display. The problem seems to be most prevalent while using the keyboard or the in-built camera application. A device like this has to be equipped with some sort of palm rejection technology and it is! Unfortunately though, it seems like that it still needs a bit of work.


Some sources informed us that Samsung has already released an urgent software update to fix this concern, but other sources argue that it just adds more functionality to the Edge UI. There are reports of the palm rejection issue's persistence on devices that already have the latest patch installed. Many are calling this particular bug in the Korean manufacturer's otherwise perfect phone, the "Edge-Gate" problem. Let us hope that Samsung can iron this little wrinkle out of its flagships before it gains any more popularity than it already has.
