I'm Scott Stein, and this is a curved phone.
It's the LG G Flex.
And it's one of the first-- along with the Samsung Galaxy Round-- that has a curved OLED display.
This is not available in the United States, yet.
This is in South Korea.
We have one here that we've been playing around with.
And you can see that it's curved top to bottom, sort of like a banana or like a wallet that's been stuck in the seat of your pants
for a while.
And it's actually flexible, too.
LG encourages you to push this down on the table with all your might, and it is meant to take force if you're sitting on it or if you happen to flatten it.
Now, how well will this work over time?
It's a little bit distressing.
But you can try it.
And speaking of extra protection, the back has a self-healing paint coating that's borrowed from the automotive industry.
You could put scratches in this, and it's supposed to heal up
because of the polymer on the back.
That sounds insane.
Stay tuned for us testing that out more, as well.
It's a 6-inch display, and the curved OLED seems best suited for horizontal videos because it throws off glare a little more.
If you hold it like this, it seems like there's a little more glare-- although it also cups your face nicely if you're making a call, and it's supposed to have some audio-enhancing capabilities because of the curvature.
Stay tuned for more on the LG G Flex.
That's a quick
look here, I'm Scott Stein.
