the Curved Display is for adding more legibility in outdoors. that means that you dont need to put your cellphone brightness to 100% to be abble to see.
btw... doing this, you battery will surely live for so long in contrast to others fat smartphones.
Additional feature is in fact... that its easier to protect the screen from a quick fall. In a fall, the phone will flip to hit in the back (the battery) or in the edges in a worst case... never will damage the screen. Its also flexible, doing the "Broke-Screem Problem" for any others circunstances Almost imposible!
Sorry for my English. i hope you to understand.
Anonymous, 24 Oct 2013a bent phone phone or a bendable phone. if its a bendable one this will be the new era in mobi... moreDon't get to carried away. It's early days as far as flexibility is concerned. The idea of the the flexible screen is to prevent the screen from breaking. To create a totaly flexible Phone would mean having to make all the parts flexible, and that is a long way of yet. So for now the screens are curved to show that it has a flexible screen even if still a rigid body.
Ok... so now we got a curve phone. What does it do ? Can we throw it like a boomerang and return back to our hand ?
It looks silly...
If there is anything they wanna do with the screen, it's to invent finger print print proof.
Or probably a very low power consumption to last our battery for a day or two.
has an SD slot, LG has released the specifications, it says that it has sd slot
but i read somehwre it have micro sd slot avaialble,
the only issue is that not full HD, it is 1280*800
if it was 1920*1080 and with atleast 32gb storage, that was great then
luke, 28 Oct 2013but dear LG, this does not flex, false marketing. on the contrary its rigid. this is LG G RigidNeither is the HTC Supersonic, well supersonic... Or Desire HD even HD... These are just names... Don't take it literally. Like Galaxy S, its not a real Galaxy...

Now its turn for other competitors to make it curve from some other angle. Samsung did it Horizontally curved and now LG did it vertically curved. It would be interesting to see other curved phones in coming days.
what s the benefit of having a curved phone!!! what a silly innovation!!! sony has created water resistant phones with a 21 mp camera and samsung created the galaxy beam which contains a projector and the note phone.first major disadvantages:
1)extra place in our pocket
3)expensive for nothing new or innovative
LG you should do a phone with exactly the same specs, but add an IR and card slot. and please DON't make it curve.
