14 second video shows that the LG G Flex really does flex
For those who thought that the LG G Flex had a somewhat misleading name, or was LG's attempt to cash in on the demand for a flexible screen, we now have video proof that the device is aptly named. A 14 second video shows how the phone does indeed flex when pressure is applied to the phone The key thing here is that enough pressure has to be applied that you wouldn't want to do this to your phone often because of the risk of breaking the screen.

The combination of the size (6 inches) and the resolution (720 x 1280) results in a rather low 245ppi pixel density, compared to today's high-end models. But the phone does provide some horsepower with a quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 under the hood. 2GB of RAM keeps the multi-taskers happy and there is 32GB of storage on board. Did we mention the 32MP rear snapper, or the 2.1 front-facing one? A hefty 3500mAh cell keeps the display lit and Android 4.2.2 is pre-installed.

The LG G Flex has its volume and power buttons on the back, similar to the LG G2, and the self healing material on the back of the phone can help it self-repair hairline scratches. And yes, it does flex. To see it do so, click on the video below.

I guess it gives extra durability although I wouldn't jerk around with it, since HW parts are still not flexible.

The only one I can think of is if a customer accidently sits on it while it's in their back pocket on a hard surface.

This is great step before releasing unbreakable screens. I think that is where this tech will go next.
