New video once again shows off self-healing capabilities of LG G Flex

0. phoneArena 19 Nov 2013, 06:01 posted on

Last week we showed you a video demonstrating the self-healing properties of the LG G Flex's rear cover. Judging from the response we received to the video, it seems like many of you are really interested in this technology.Or perhaps you just can't believe it and you expect to see some sort of magic trick when you watch the video...

Nothing against LG, but a self healing front (glass) is what wee need !!! The aluminium back on my HTC One (silver) is more than resistant to scratches ! Plus is more premium than any self healing plastic... any ways Lg seems to be on the good path with their phones....More premium materials and premium design LG !

I think the iPhone 5 was the first flexible smartphone... Remember?http://www.phonearena.com/news/Apple-iPhone-5-users-complain-of-soft-bendy-frame_id38062

This might be the smartest marketing gimmick this year. So instead of using material that doesn't scratch easily, this one does but heals! OMG it's a miracle! :D

Yeah this “marketing gimmick” is soo... much better than any features in your beloved company curve phone galaxy round.

Well yea, true innovation involves 64 bit with 1 gig of ram, anything less is just a gimmick.

This has got to be one of the most simple minded posts ever if your being sarcastic.

Self healing material is a gimmick? Take a look at your current phone....with no protection on it.... and tell me how you really feel.

Except for the 720p display, G Flex actually looks and feels like a really practical phone.

How is 720p not practical?

High end phone but last year's screen. Just saying.

And when 4k comes to phones....will we be saying that about 1080p screens?

I agree with cezarepc. These are phones.....that are effected by screen technology just like HDTV's are. Tiny screens compared to HDTV's.

I can show you a 720p HDTV that looks better than a 1080p one easily just based on color reproduction, blacks, edge lit or full array.

I meant the price you pay for the device should warrant a 1080p screen. Look at the price tag. Unless it is priced like Samsung Mega then 720p is practical.

FYI: I actually like this device.

244 PPI is still pretty decent though. Just like WVGA on a 4 inch phone.

Its more like 3.8 inches or qHD on a 4.5 inch screen.

the design of the galaxy curve is better, this phone would look awkward and uncomfortable if you put it in your pocket.

Who needs tough (expensive) materials when there's a self-healing option?

Wow that thing looks just like the Galaxy Nexus. Anyway, cut the gimmicks, and give me a battery the last at least forty-eight hours.

A flexible phone, screen? Is the the beginning of fewer cracked, broken screens? I didnt think it was possible with capacitive screens. Resistive, yea its possible but they scratch super easy.
