I use the sides of the device. I have done this with all phones. It won't be an issue with a smaller/non-existent bezel.

Why would you need to "rest" your thumbs?! just put the phone into the pocket and go eat an ice cream.

bashing a company ( granted its lg) for innovating is the worst form of trolling !!

Great!!! If lg can use the same screen tech on the iPad mini to avoid accidental presses then it would be awesome!

It's awesome, but it needs to be flexible to take side-damage that troubles the rival S4 (I dunno about the Optimus G Pro's screen resistance).

i agree. this would be a nice build to go with a flexible display. only 1 problem with phones that have very little bezel, how does a case stay attached to it?

I managed to eat my donut while scrolling down on webpages and flipping through my albums without having to use my greasy fingers. Then when theres an incoming call, I didn't even need to use my dirty greasy hands to answer it... if thats not innovation than your an idiot.

Having a bezeless screen is pretty much prone to a damaged screen and unwanted touches on the screen.

Also the S4 pretty much had one of the smallest bezel and being the thinnest 5 inch screen out there, but since your an LG fanboy, that didn't matter to you did it?

lg fanboy???rotfl...
you couldn't be more wrong.
Nokia, I'm. lg , certainly not.
You're another kid on the block screaming for more. If samsung introduced bezeless phone you would be elated. When lg did that, you start finding cons.
Hush, kiddo.

yeah thats some innovations but you know what

S4 uses sensitive screen from synaptics and the eye tracking sensor on S4 is not Samsung innovations

I agree with_Bone_, this needs to be a flexible screen. this device would be WAY too fragile if made with glass.

13. jackhammeR (Posts: 1548; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)


maybe more fragile but it shows potential of LG. The're pushing the envelope each time they unveil a new type of a screen.

awesum beauty,,if they cud add a body like htc one or nokia 925 then it will look splendid. But still it looks good. Sometimes i really wonder why lg lacks in cellphone market? They have more innovation up their sleeves thn samd@@g i guess. And they deserve to be treated better. Anyways nice try by l.g , seems like dats the type f phone screen( less bezels ) i been lookin forward to. Cheers

hahah and what about nokia????? Is it at bott or what???? Lol dont trust these figures nt even bothered to have a dekko. Howcome its possible that a company can spend billion phones or 10 million ????? If we add other companies data as well then seriously it will surpass the entire population on earth. But thats nt the case sm companies will mislead by saying they have sold 1 million or 10 million or say 1 billion smartphones. Do we really trust these data?? Lol

what are you 2 talking about? i was replying to deburocks post of lg lacking in cell phone market when in fact they arent. and yes, these numbers are to be believed. idc is reputable unlike someone trying to link the verge. and no deburocks, it doesnt pass the human population. common sense should have told you that. this figures are in the millions, not billions. read the report and use your reading comprehension please.
