Samsung Galaxy Round ad delivers 30 seconds of round

0. phoneArena 28 Oct 2013, 00:22 posted on

How ironic is it that on the day that LG announces its curved LG G Flex handset, Samsung shows off an ad for its Samsung Galaxy Round? Both models have limited distribution inside South Korea, which makes sense since both LG and Samsung are Korean base; one major difference between the direction of the two is the curve. On Samsung's Galaxy Round, the curve is on the vertical axis...

LG's curve is more meaningful. It hugs the face during calls, while there is little reason for a phone to hug your leg in trouser pockets.

This technology is simply not ready, and we won't see any proper use for curved screens until more components can be made flexible. Only then will we see true foldable/flexible phones.

I agree. Lgs curved phone looks much better than this.

But its more uncomfortable in the trouser pockets since they opposite-ly shaped, but if one is keeping in their top pocket and they coincidentally happen to b a female them thats a completely different question ;-)

Yup. Sorry about those extreme comments but you have to recognise the fact that no OS is perfect immediately after it has released. If you are a loyal PA reader you will know that someone posted comments similar to yours and was completely proven wrong by links posted about the bugs in the latest version of android. Yes it's true that ios 7 had bugs at launch but most of those we're fixed by 7.0.x. In everyday usage it's 100% stable. Android and iOS are the best mobile OSs but none of them are perfect. Anyway, let's end this word fight. It kinda makes both of us look like extreme fanboys.

"grammer is essential" says a guy who don't know how to use "just" in a sentence.
‘Just’ is usually used only with the present perfect tense and it means ‘a short time ago’. For example:

I’ve just seen Susan coming out of the cinema.
Mike’s just called. Can you ring him back please?
Have you just taken my pen? Where has it gone?
So I'm pretty sure my sentence is correct. Before you advice someone make sure that you know what you're talking about.

Which is why after the novelty wears off, I think round screens are not going to be big sellers.

Samsung....you try to do something new but this time it's a "fail on arrival"!!
Should take some cue from LG Flex..
