Check out the first hands-on for the LG G Flex and watch the back cover self-heal
posted by Alan F. / Nov 11, 2013, 8:57 PM
We can just imagine LG G Flex owners repeating the action that shows off how the phone does actually live up to its name. As repeated in the video below, placing the phone screen-side down and placing some pressure on the middle of the back cover will result in the phone flexing.
One of the cool features of the LG G Flex is the self-healing back cover that helps hairline scratches disappear on the rear of the phone. This process has to be seen to be believed, which is why you can see it work for yourself on the second video below.
Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

I hope they will be more CURVE screens will follow with other COMPANIES in the next year or two

take that sammy, that is a REAL FLEX phone (+self healing). Think twice before trying to sell us a stupid galaxy round as a flexible phone. GO GO go LG, SHOW em what u've got!

Samsung didn't market the Galaxy round as a flexible phone, they marketed it as a phone with curved screen, that's all troll!! Although I do agree that Flex is a much, much, much better concept than the round, I would never underestimate Samsung.

Do they also have a time machine to copy the G Note app, G View cover, G Flex concept, G Beam, G Voice, G camera app, G multitasking, G gestures and go back in time and release the S versions months before LG does?

I wonder if it can be 100% healed, or there will be some mini scars

This is all wrong!! LG are suggesting this is flexible by using the word "FLEX" however it is not, it is "curved". This is just a half done job and not truly flexible! Flexible = capable of bending EASILY without breaking.

After reading all the comments, why do I feel like I'm the only one that doesn't want a "real flexible" phone? :c Maybe just the screen to make it more resilient, but not an OMGZICANBENDTHESHIZOUTOFTHIS phone.

Well for me it is the same reason to get a Waterproof phone like the one I own... the extra safety and bit of confidence that you can use the phone even if its raining, on the beach, pool, shower, kitchen, etc... and waterproofing tend to make phones a bit more resilent The upside for a flexible screen for me is the ability to survive drops, not just that I can bend it, that is not useful at all... And the self healing back is genious... no cases. Just how I like my phones.
