Just got my Note FE with a curved screen but I really need to get used to it. My Lumia 930 has curved glass on the edges it's all fine. I prefer a flat screen though.
Anonymous, 23 Jul 2017Flat screen, flat glass, it's as simple as that. With that combo, you can reach highest screen... moreCame to post this, glad someone beat me to it.
#1 = Flat display + Flat glass
#2 = Curved display + Curved glass
#3 = Flat display + Curved glass
Number two and three makes massive trade-off's against the integrity of the phone. It's now more prone to shattering, all in the sake of aesthetics. However, number three actually diminishes aesthetics from a standard flat display+flat glass... these are devices like the Nexus S and Galaxy Curve, pointless.
Number 1 is the best, flat screen with flat glass... just like the LG G6.
I'm quite disappointed with LG for two minor problems. Firstly, they should've removed their logo from the front and put a second speaker there. Secondly, they should've opted for the QSD 835 chipset. Those two minor differences could've seen it steal purchases away from the Galaxy S8.
Flat on my phone, but my desktop monitors will be curved Ultrawides in future as well. I don't see any reason for a phone screen to be curved (S7 Edge looked good in pics, but in real life I wouldn't stand the edge).
Flat screen + a slightly curved 2.5D glass. 50%
Flat screen + a flat Gorilla glass. 45%
Curved screen + curved Gorilla glass. 5%
In short I like the first two options better.
Flat, of course flat. Its all about practicality for me over some fancy looks.

S6: flat screen, flat glass with metal sticking out a tiny bit to protect it
S7: flat screen, curved glass which isn't protected by anything
S8: curved screen, curved glass, absolute nightmare.
Flat screen, flat glass, it's as simple as that. With that combo, you can reach highest screen-to-body-ratio, it's the most grippy, screen protectors go all the way to the edges, the screen itself is the most durable because you can add a tiny little plastic rim (see iPhone 5) and it gives you the ability to chamfer the metal a little bit which looks good.
It's the same with TVs. Curved came as fast as it was gone again. Flat surfaces just take the highest room of their space. For example, curved TVs increase the thickness of it by a lot. Compared to this, the newer LG OLEDs with razor thin top part look much better. And with phones it's the same. Curved edges are unused space where you could also put components so they make room for a bigger battery.
Coming from an iPhone 7 user who thinks that Apple should go back to a blocky design like iPhone 5 and improve on that. There are a few beautiful iPhone 7 concepts featuring such a design. One that came to my mind, which I found after searching is the one by gdgtcompare. Another one is by phonetech, so If you type in "iPhone 7 concept phonetech" it's at the moment the 5th picture at google. It looks pretty similar to the one by gdgtcompare
The best one was in HTC Sensation - curved edges, but to the oustide, making the front glass a bit concave.
Just took the survey here. The results on hand were surprising. Samsung and company... feel free to examine.
Also, if I imagine s9/s10 with curved screen at every corner(100% screen-to-body ratio), what is to be expected, its hard to not call it best.
flat screen, and then you can add the 2.5D tempered glass
you get both of beauty and protection
Of course most people don't have this premium and futuristic, ergonomic and eye-pleasing feature as its mostly samsung-flagship exclusive. Would be stupid to think that current smartphones got ideal and final body style, size, and won't change anymore. Actually curved screen is just beginning, with bending smartphones/screens coming next year. Therefore it doesn't really matter what most of people think.
Definitely flat. I'm using an S7 edge, and the screen is the worst part. Makes it awkward to handle. Looks great, but no good for man hands.
Automatic Flat-Curved when you wanna every which by-by one apart from each other dual type in 1
