Just give me a flagship phone with an unbreakable screen, large lasting battery and the latest version of Android and you'll have my money.

And that's flexible display for your, unbreakable screen, thinner lighter profile that allows larger battery. We only need Sammy to do a Flexus.

They probably already have something like that. But I doubt they'd put it out in the market, cuz people won't buy another phone after that. It'd only hurt their business.

So that why we saw Samsung put out the 'Round'. Its not fooling nobody.

Flexible display.. The meaning of such that people really want to see isnt yet achievable.!!
We need flexible battery too we need flexible parts more and more! Just accept that for now only durability is lifted

some people thought 3D phone screens would be useful as well

flexible screens sure are useful, not because of their physical flexibility, but because of the flexibility of their use, I mean, they're thin and light

but I still don't like OLED

I wonder why some people think flexible screens are unbreakable?

It's a gimmick or it's practical, it all depends on how manufacturers tread when incorporating it into applicable use. If the aspect is geared more towards flashy marketing sensationalism and less towards thought and concept; then we'll have our answer.

This technology has great prospect but samsung's execution is bad to say the least!

Yes...Its definitely looks useful for durable, stronger, cheaper screens, allow larger batteries, different new hardware inside and lighter phones.

Need to distinguish between "flexible" meaning consumer can manipulate the shape and "curved" or "shaped" meaning the manufacturer manipulated the shape.

It's a topic of discussion at the office already. I agree, at this point it appears we may have to go with curved or whatever, since flexibility communicates a rather different (and cooler) concept ;).

Love it. The people think its worth it vs isheep websites thinking it was a horrible idea because its not made by apple. Stick it!

How are we going to use this phone, I mean its cool but is it practical?

I can see how the Galaxy Round is easy to hold because of the curved display, but I feel portrait texting will be hard with these ergonomics...
