Check out the first hands-on for the LG G Flex and watch the back cover self-heal

0. phoneArena posted on 11 Nov 2013, 20:57

The LG G Flex is supposed to launch tomorrow, Tuesday, in South Korea. On Sunday, we showed you a promotional video along with some pictures of the accessories being offered for the device. Today, we have a hands-on video from France which is obviously not in English. Keep in mind that what you are looking at is a 6 inch screen although resolution is 720 x 1280. The combination works out to a less than spectacular 245ppi pixel density...

And also other flexible hardware inside to make the phone real flexible. BTW brilliant self-healing concept.

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.

Yeah, don't underestimate Samsung from copying ideas. It's their trademark.

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

It looks like the second test has left some scratches.

Well, I guess my LG G2 that I bought last Wed is going back and I will wait for this... or maybe not. I'm not sure.

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.

Watch the video! Although it is not THAT flexible, but everything has to begin from something

Now I really want a drop test for this device... flexible display, plus self healing back.... this phone is probably going to destroy every drop test available (except against Nokia 3310)

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.

The screen resolution is disappointing, but the rest of the phone looks awesome.
If it is less than $900 in the US I would definitely consider this.
