i think a curved screen is great, virtially no risk of cracking the screen if dropped as it will never land on the acrual screen.

I like it. Think it looks great. Bit to big for me though.
Probably a bit of a gimmick but what isn't these days.

I HOPE THESE Phones never sell.

Else i fear for the future of phones..

Comparing specs i can take it.
Comparing battery capacity i can take it.
Comparing screen sizes.. i still can take it.

BUT .. "MY PHONE IS bent 90 degrees more then URS, ur phone suck!" THAT.. i cannot take it!

Pros:
- More comfortable in pants pocket if put sideways or in the back pocket
- Might be slightly more ergonomic in hand
- Sits better on top of a watermellon
Cons:
- looks weird
- bye bye flip cover
- will brake more easily if sat on or pressed in the bag
- takes more space in most places, especially in jacket pocket where this size device is likely to be kept

in as much as its kinda cool to hear about screens that are virtually unbreakable until d rest of d phone can flex like d screen I don't really see the whole curved screen thing as much more than I did it first gimmick

Great for those who want to keep their phone in their back pocket, especially those with nice round butt. For those flat butts, forget it.
