    So imagine this on a flat surface face down. Now imagine pressure placed in the middle downward.

    If you buy this I'd carry insurance. Another gimmick.

    I think anyone must be as careful with this curved LG as with any other. One thing is for sure, with such a pronounced curve the phone will take more space in your shirt or pants pocket. That's a no no.

    KTW, sometimes I have to move freight requiring me to lean against racks or skate racks. A hard case takes the brunt. Take anything curved and press on the outside of that curve. Doesn't take much to break.

    Speaking of cases, guessing its tpu or 2 piece for this thing. I see no use for such a pronounced curve on either this or the Samsung. This tech is neat but should be focused on other areas.

    I don't want my phone rocking, and I'd never place this one face down on a hard surface. I'd never take it out in the woods when I work out there.

    Del you're right.

    Sorry but beyond all of the comments why in the world would anyone want this device. It's another one of those head shakers

    Lg G Flex with curved display smartphone has recently launched in India. After Samsung, Lg has also stepped into the market of curved display smartphones. This is the first phone having world's first curved battery. I like the design of it but it is quite expensive.

    I really like this brand new handset of Lg. The phablet is massive and modern display.

    The trouble is LG's notorious below par manufacturing care. Look at the Nexus 5. Apparently the latest batch of them have fixed some of the hardware glitches. Another thing is they sell cheap after a month or do. Quality and market value are their main obstacles.
