This looks dope. Pockets, shmockets, who gives a flying #^CK. Been waiting for a slick design like this for ages. Way to go LG. Bring it ASAP
it's not designed for the front pocket but the back pocket. it is designed perfectly for everyone's butt shape
back pocket for the LG
Front pocket for the Galaxy
Get it wrong and get a new fone
Better battery and power management should have been the priority along with using this screen technology for better protection for "normal" phones.
you're wrong !
in Galaxy Round it's like you say !
but in this one it's even worst !
Put your hand flat to your face in lieu of a phone, freeze the hand position and look at your hand : it's curved.
Now put your hand sideways on your leg at pocket-height and look at it : your hand is curved again.
I can already see LG's advert for that phone : all about Nature and how this phone was made with Nature in mind, they'll even put bird calls and waterfall sounds as ringtones lol
must, 14 Oct 2013yeah but thats not necessary due the quality of the mic nowadays...one problem is that is gonn... moreThought about the pocket-fit issue and wondered if it wouldn't prove for a snuglier fit actually : got a 4S and it always turns sideways in my pocket and does make for an ugly bulge, but with a curved phone like that, it wouldn't poke out at the corners.
So, no, the pocket-fit is not an issue for me, it's the readability of the screen I worry a little more about :
imagine viewing a GoPro video on it which are already fisheyed distorted for instance ?
Now this type of pad design is definetly for women...lol...if men buy this and keep it in front pocket with that kind of curve it will b a s€× appeal.or awkward for some shy men..lol @_@
Well, actually the company will say: Why put it in the pocket? Just see where weman put their phones. This is simlpe.
There will be reports of these things breaking within hours of their release, I can guarantee it. Put this in a pocket or on a table curve upwards and I can't imagine it would take much pressure to snap it like a carrot.
The samsung round and both make no sense except to drain your pockets. If they would bend and fit in a pocket that would be amazing
what use is a stupid curved non flexible phone.what when some want sits on it haha. or breaks it in their tight pockets
Coolworld, 14 Oct 2013A curved design makes more sense for a phone as it follows the natural curve of a face from ea... moreyeah but thats not necessary due the quality of the mic nowadays...one problem is that is gonna take more space inside the pockets...curved screens can be more ergonomic, but really not that necessary...flexible displays YES, very nice and useful, just curved, PASS.
A curved design makes more sense for a phone as it follows the natural curve of a face from ear to month... curious as to how a picture or a video would feel like tho.
AnonD-195372, 14 Oct 2013just put those flexible screen on regular phone design!!!hi its imagine
Anonymous, 14 Oct 2013LG has already made battery that can bent and twist,Look it up.It can't twist.
Anonymous, 14 Oct 2013the idea of a curved display is not only for comfort in jeans pocket, i think it would make on... morePut in in your jeans pocket with a vertical curve like that. It fits like a cha...ir
i personally think this is a great idea, easily slides into the pack pockets of tight pants i guess. Its a step forward towards flexible displays..whoever thought that these rumoured devices from LG and Samsung were going to be able to be flexed like a rubber ruler were severely mistaken. This device are like the galaxy note range. Its a phone that's not going to be phone for everyone, hence why LG isnt including it into their G flagship line up. Think people...
