If you step on a regular phone the surface area is harder to break. This thing will bend and snap. Simple glass repair will become new phone replacement.
I'm so curious about the benefits and odds of using a curved display. Someone from GSM can explain that?
Thinking again, 09 Oct 2013Typing on a curve surface can be tricky, we will see how that goestapping the edge of the keyboard like Q,Z,P,etc is hard enough but now ith a curve display it will be almost impossible for small handed people even if you use it two handed
nek minnet Apple announce the iCurve display and sues Samsung for copyright
so they curved the display of note 3 and made a new phone. now when they have to release the update they will give excuse for " as we have a number of varrient so we need more time for updates"

WWOOWW..samsung having a 1st smart phone w/curve display!!!??hu!! USELESS!
Typing on a curve surface can be tricky, we will see how that goes
emmm ... a curve phone in your hands, not as cool as I will imagine. Try swiping you finger in the valley and see how it feels.
AnonD-194635, 09 Oct 2013Worlds first curved display? Doesn't galaxy nexus have one if I'm not mistaken?No, it had optical illusion.
AnonD-194625, 09 Oct 2013well , the curved screen will be much stronger than the normal ones , it will not break and th... moreDo you even know about what is flexible display before posting your comment?
Any OLED displays can be fabricated on flexible plastic substrates leading to the possibility of having a bendable display or flexible display. And as everyone knows that Samsung is using OLED display so called "Super AMOLED" on their flagship for this past few years. So this mean that it is technically the same as the display that you found it on the S series and Note series as all of them are NOT FLEXIBLE, just curved vs non-curved OLED display. So Samsung just bended the display a bit and that's it. Also, I'm pretty sure Samsung won't sell this grimmick cheaply. I really like the Youm display concept that Samsung presented on CES 2013 which is FOLDABLE/ROLLABLE, but not this slightly bended/curved but not flexible display.

You ask for benefit; when you drop it onto the front panel, whole screen will not touch the ground and will not break as other smartphones..
Apart from the benefit of phone falling on the face, I don't see any other benefit of curved display...
