  1. As your standard flat phone is just a little too boring for the always-shifting market, companies such as Samsung and LG are trying to change the mold by introducing handsets with curved displays. Today we're seeing LG's efforts coming to...

    Someone must have come to the conclusion a curved display would fit your *** cheek better, when putting the phone in your back pocket. Otherwise, I can't think of any pros to having a curved display on a device with such a small screen.

    Curved display phones seem to be very much a "Why? because we can". See no value added by having a curved screen. Harder to get a viewing angle without any glare?

  4. The curves should apply on the edges in the opposite direction, that will aloow a better grip and a little bit more round phone, and will be more useful, the problem? that part of the screen has to be really resistant and thats it, its the only way to cropping stupid logo edges and giving maximun screen size without making it to big

    I think the curve would be a little annoying. There really isn't a point to it like there is with a curved large-screen TV. Honestly it reminds me of when I was a kid and I used a banana as a pretend telephone.

    Who knows though, perhaps it's very cool to hold and use. I'll reserve any more judgement until I see one in a store.

    Ok. Everybody agree this sucks. Curved screen sucks on so many levels it should be skipped.The new best thing in phone design would be folding imo. You would get a tablet that you could fold it into a phone and it will also fit your pocket. So I`ll be more excited for bent folding screens.

    Lol, what? Vertically curved makes no sense! You can't fit it into any pocket sideways, it takes up more room in a handbag, and is curved too much! Samsung with a gentle horizontal curve has at least some benefit.

    The only cool thing about this is that it is a real life banana phone xD!
