Well it just occurred to me that dropping this device on it's face would be less detrimental to the screen than that of it's flat brothers... Anyone else see the note 3 drop tests?
All very nice, but is anyone (manufacturers) focused on bigger batteries?????
What so important.. do we need this kind of screen??
It is awesome... but people don't need this..
Don't know what they are trying to experiment with, Its the money they are talking about now, I dont think the curved displays would go with a good hype.. unless untill they provide with a proper curved display with the lot of software tweaks to go in hand!!
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2013lol... when apple used 64bit , people call gimmick , next year samsung used 64bit , thats inno... morethats because they aren't technically using the 64-bit in their system... its typical marketing bullshit, not unless you make full use of the system

Turkuaz, 09 Oct 2013This tecghnology is more suitable for watch phones (curved surfaces, as leg).Very good idea
If you wear those cargo pants, it would maybe rest more comfortably in the thigh pocket. That's the only advantage I can think of.
I give Samsung some credit because lately (the last couple years) it seems they have been experimenting a lot by releasing many different varieties of phones with what seems like every possible feature and screen size.
You know when you go to the Auto shows and see all the cool concept cars you'd wish manufacturers would build but never do? -- Well guess what, Samsung does (in the mobile phone world, at least).
Apple's busy hoarding all its cash, re-releasing old phones with a "s" tacked onto the model number while Samsung seems to be spending what I would think is substantially more on R&D.
Hope this will lead to another set of devices jus like the phablets started will samsungs galaxy note series
@ first i thought curved display is illogical, but later i realized it will fit better on the rear & front pockets ;p
I guess it also runs the brand new curved touchwiz interface,right?useless device,samsung,useless time spent,they'd better focus on developing new battery technologies to last longer.

It's stupid. Apple rushed this chip just so they can be first. Next year Samsung will bring a 64-bit that will be 2x-3x as fast as Apple's chip. And probably the S5 might have 4GB ram meaning the 64-bit chip is required. So yeah, it will be a lot more innovative than Apple's gimmick

What is so great with this? I had curved front phone years ago, its called Nokia N9 and everybody know of that phone. Given, only the glass is curved and it curved the other way, but it takes the "news" out of this thing. Same with LGs KnockOn, Nokia N9 had that as well and noone reacted, but now its being praised as "great innovation from LG".
This is no less than ridiculous.
World's first curved display after their previus curved display samsung i9025.
