Plastic screens are the future, do you really think flexible screens will use glass?

Until everyone gets ticked off by all the scratches on the screen. That's why people pay extra for their glasses to have glass lenses instead of plastic.

Plastic ? not again ! ,
i wonder if they could make battery out of plastic, then it would be a unibody plastic design. Plastic is sort of sammy's trademark these days....

Not having to worry about your phone cracking will be nice when every device switches to this.

My concern is not so much the screen breaking but scratching the display. Seems to me a plastic display would be extremely easy to scratch. Can you imagine what it would look like over a two year contract?

Why would a flexible display matters if the phone can't be flex? It defeats the purpose of having one

It's just another selling point that Sammy is trying to use on consumers, not impressed.

Cant u get it?? You and rgxvoid are f**ckng trolls and haters, if u dont want samsung den dont read artvles abt them....
It's flexible coz its plastc but they dont emphasize abt its flexbility, they focused on its topnotch durability and how the phone wil be slimmer..

I'm sure you've been practicing those wonderful hand stretching/enlarging routines as invented by Samsung - too bad they don't provide a manual 4 their patented technique along with their devices! Lol!

I'd much rather Samsung push back the release date in order to get it correct and be able to release a solid model across the board like they did with the Note2...

I do NOT want them to push it so it comes out early only to not have sufficient hardware like the s4 and end up giving the states the ish end of the stick again and sticking us with the weaker setup.

Screen sizes are getting ridicules, I wonder when will they get so big that they start decreasing in size. I'm glad apples not following trend. Anything over 5 inches is far to big for a phone..

I'm glad sm1 in this forum at least has common sense! The Note owners don't mind if it's 20'' also, all they care abt is d bigger, d better!

Sure plastic is more pliable and wont break if you drop or step on it, but there is a reason people spend extra to get the lenses on their glasses made out of glass.... Plastic easily scratches. You may not notice the slight scratches on the phones body but you will the clear screen. You have to be careless to break a glass screen, but no matter how careful you are the plastic screen will scratch.

I have fallen in love with my Note II so much so that I dont know if Ill ever go back to screen size less than 5.5"...IMO I think anywhere from 5.8"-6" will be a good size as long as Samsung shrinks the bezels and add just a few mm here and there!
