LG G Flex 2 self-healing back cover demo
posted by Victor H. / Jan 08, 2015, 5:07 AM
The LG G Flex 2 comes with one feature straight out of sci-fi movies: a self-healing back cover. LG set up demonstration booths to convincingly show visitors at CES 2015 that the technology does indeed work and it is very fast.
When you scratch the back cover of a phone, what you are technically creating is dents. Those dents remain there for life in the form of scratches and in the traditional back cover there is no way to fix them. What LG has done is basically create a polymer (it is not an effect achieved by dipping the cover in some sort of toughening fluid, but indeed intrinsic), a poly-resin that expands when you dent the phone to cover those dents and scratches.
In this way, the LG G Flex 2, which is the first phone to have this new technology comes with better protection from daily wear and tear than traditional phone UV coating, and it has most signs of blemishes and scratches are healed and no longer visible within 10 seconds. Sounds amazing, and we do recommend you to take a look right below to see the G Flex 2's self-healing back cover in action.

What did I just watch??? One the camera was so bad in and out of focus two the angles would never allow you to ever see a scratch three the overly bright lighting with that glossy back cover is not conducive for the purpose of the video. If I had taken that video I would not have posted it maybe there is no way for the camera to capture the effect if so why post a video that shows nothing? I totally believe it probably does work and am interested in the extent in which it works but it seems like I might have to see it for myself hopefully its not gimmicky as it sounds.
