Galaxy Round ‘Roll Effect’

This feature also works hen playing a song, for instance tilt the phone to the right to go to the next song, to the left for the previous track.

The Galaxy Round also retains feature like that of the Note 3, such as Multi Window for running two apps at once and one-handed mode (activated by drawing a sort of zigzag arcoss the screen).

Overall Opinion

The Galaxy Round seems like a good, all-rounded phone (get it?) in principle, but I don’t think it will catch on very easily. What do you think? Tell us in the comments below!
