I don't really see the point of curved phones at the moment.. does anyone have another opinion, that may change my mind on that thought?

Cases will be interesting for them. Not my thing but I'm sure they'll suit some.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

I like the flat screen. Less warped reflections..

Don't see the need for a curved screen phone.
But I'm still keen to try it in hands before I decide if I like it or not

people are used to what they have so many new innovations are seen as not necessary, I'll reserve my opinion but like the idea of a flexi plastic screen and where that will go in future products.

I keep my phone in my front pants pocket, so one benefit I can see is that it'll hug the curve of my thigh better, meaning having a such a large device like this should be a bit more comfortable to pocket this way.

Wade: And i recall the days when we transititoned from curved CRT's to flat screen tv's, not sure my poor eyes could cope going back to curved! :P


Carrying on from this,
Its something i found funny, the other day at Digital Nationz on display was a curved tv from LG, going from convex curve out in beginning, to flat, now we are back to curved but concave on tvs. interesting lil transition tv screens have done.  

And I do like the idea that IronH mentioned.  Curved screen in pocket will hug the thigh better on the bigger devices.
 Will be neat to see and hold one of these phones when available.
