Don't wanna buy this crumpled subphone, it will be very fun to have 5.7 inches protruding rib inside your pants.

Better to wait normal flexible phone, not this intermediate step of marketing evolution for stupid.

It's just a smaller company trying to make a big profit off a device in demand.

Something that iMedia will never tell you about Round:

1- The arch of the phone fits to the arch of the palm, so the big phone curved feels smaller in the hand, than the same size flat one.
2-Easier to rich the corners of the screen, that come closer to the thumb.
3- Easyer for the pocket, than same same size big phones, because the edges don't pull out the pockets like the big flat phones.The curve of the phone follows the curve of the body, instead. Much more pocketable , compare with same size (big)flat device..
4-Dropping "on screen" on the floor or ground , doesn't hit flat screen, but only the edges of the frame.- So, more unbreakable display.
5-Falling from high level, the aerodynamics force the phone to fall mostly on the back.
6-According to Display Mate, Round has less reflective screen.

Not sure why we are moving to a curved phone, when we are veering away from curved TV. To my understanding Flat screen TVs are much better than the conventional curved TV, and yet we are making flat screen phones back to curved screen? What kind of sorcery is this?

They are testing the market with semi-good mobile phones. I mean seriously, if that isn't Samsung or LG who actually manufacture the displays(unlike Sony & HTC who are basically outsourcing their displays), no one would even care of releasing these mobile phones.

Practically useless.
