ok I like to see technology move forward and new creative, technologies but someone tell me why would someone want a screen that bends? Maybe its just me but can someone tell me why you would want a screen thats flexible?

flexible screens would make breaking the screens practically impossible. that's their goal

The most realistic use of this is as mentioned Samsung nexus that is curved.
So the consumer wont be able to bend the screen but the screen will be more curved.
I am just waiting for the super curved banana phone!

What makes flexible glass better? Anyone? It sounds like wasted money, not even a gimmick. Silly crapsung

I'm not an expert at this, correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't a flexible screen make the phone sturdier? I mean the screen would have flex and not get easily crushed by pressure and impact. That's how I see this being somewhat practical. Imagine the iPhone 4/4s having both front and back glass panels flexible. Then it wouldn't be so freakin fragile.

I agree, but I just don't want my bending all over the place, it seems like it could get annoying. And other than that I haven't seen any advantage, nor would I say that that would work entirely.

i dont like the feeling of a screen that is capacitive with this bendable screen. it is like a resistive touch screen.

for the record the samsung illusion is a phone that features a curved glass display.
