LG might ship its first flexible displays ahead of Samsung this year

0. phoneArena 10 Apr 2013, 07:10 posted on

Samsung's YOUM brand of flexible displays already got presented in prototype devices at the CES expo back in January, but we are yet to see them in commercially available mobile gear. It seems now that none other than LG, with which Samsung is in a kerfuffle with over OLED display patents, might beat it to the punch with devices employing flexible screens...

Pretty sure samsun copied the technology from LG again.
as always, they just copy other company's developments.

doesnt make your comment true, they dont rule. besides nothing stays the most powerful forever it changes constantly. now on day to day use you hardly notice the difference

specs will be like megapixels-more doesnt mean better its the final experience that counts

so yes you do say it without proof and its a real fanboy comment you made

15. magnanimus (Posts: 212; Member since: 29 Mar 2013)


i agree i made a fanboy's comment but the numbers talk for themselves. Samsung is the No 1 phone manufacturer in the world.

besides, are you into iphones?

17. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)


no im not into iphones i aint against people who use them either

besides numbers and sales arent the full story and dont mean there the best it means there the most popular right now and have excellent marketing

face it samsung are pulling the same moves apple did-unified line up, same key design with tweaks etc and ofcourse higher prices for accessories. funny though how apple have been ripped into constantly for these moves but samsung get praised

so what else you got?

You're just saying that because of some hidden hate for samsung. first, You have to realise that a phone company doesnt just steal a concept from another. thats what patents are for.

Samsung used to do copy back in the days with the S2 and other phones but they paid the price (Apple took the case to court and Apple won).

But the S3, S4 and the Note are just pure innovation and i'm sure you will agree with this. I know samsung has been a jackass back in 2011, but u've got to admit, now, they've got GAME.

Come at me bruv. whatelse?

this site has gone down so much when you have the faceless thumb downers just doing so as they praise samsung for everything

lets reply to you and watch your fellow fanboys protect you.

ok so everything ive said which is fact is because of hate? makes no sense you cant disprove what ive said so you try to discredit it. try harder kid samsung are going the same way as apple. all companys get too big headed and start slacking.

samsung are notorious copycats and steal others ideas for themselves again its been proven there no cleaner then apple.

the s3 wasnt innovation, it was evolution and a result of apples attack, they had to distance themselves from the s2's design. s4 again no pure innovation just an increase in specs and overall improvement on the s3 but not by much that those with the s3 need an instant upgrade to it.

now the original note, ive always said samsung hit a untapped market here and the note series are excellent pieces of tech. but they need to keep that with the note 3 as others will start coming into the phablet market

so there complete answer to your entire comment something rare on here as you ignored most of my original comment

so yeah i came at you, answered your one way comment and i bet you will only see anything against samsung like all these fanboys thumbing people down

why do i have to be on a side?

im on my side i buy what i like and i know all these companies couldnt care about me they only want money

seriously shows your unable to comment without trying to define someone by there choice, also your pretty sad if you chose a side

lol so now your trying to pin me to a phone anyway you can

pretty low move but i'll play your game, and right now if i were looking for a new phone which i aint because im happy with the one ive got id be looking at either the rumored nokia with 41mp sensor or the HTC one.

You saw right through me. I'll give it to you, you are a worthy opponent. :) We'll whatever your opinion about Sasung is, its still one of the best. besides, there is a Nokia Pureview 808 with 41mp and its been out for like a year now.

39. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)


ive already got the 808, its the phone im using and happy with, you asked if i was going for another device what would i look at...........no point looking at what i already own is there

and ive never said samsung arent up there, but there not what these fanboys make them out to be which im bored of hearing

and yeah this was fun, least you construct an actual comment that isnt full of bs

actually no sad act (cba been nice to the muppets on here)

look at every non android article, always swarmed on by android fanboys, look at the comments i reply to always one sided bs

doesnt take a genius to see android fans think because they have numbers on there side there superior to everyone

so stop pretending to be tech lovers, give real tech lovers a bad image

Apple just applied for a patent on that same flexible display LG phone. May be Apple bought the LG flexible display and patented.

I was wondering about that...Apple just put a patent in for the same tech and very similar design as what Samsung just showed off at CES. I am all for company sharing idea and expanding on them. But it has become very clear only thing Apple wants to do, is make sure they are the only choice in town. Not actually advance tech.

Why blame Apple. Blame the country which frames such LAWS where stealing and patenting is priority.
