A few weeks after that, Apple was giving away free rubber bumpers to some iPhone 4 owners. The rubber was supposed to prevent the interference to the antenna that caused Antennagate from taking place. Once again Motorola paid for a full page ad in the Times with a headline that read "No Jacket Required" right above an image of the DROID X. The meaning was obvious.
And who could forget those great ads made by Samsung that took shots at iPhone buyers waiting online to buy the next iteration of Apple's smartphone. Those ads debuted in November of 2011 and promoted the Samsung Galaxy S II.
Today, LG has sent out a tweet that promotes the LG G Flex 2 while also making fun of the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. "Some curves just make sense," LG posts and follows it with the hashtag #bendgate. There are so many things that LG could be making fun of. One could be the recently disclosed news that the Galaxy S6 edge bends just like the Apple iPhone 6 Plus. Or, it could refer to the very limited capabilities of the extra curved glass on the Galaxy S6 edge. Regardless of what LG had in mind, it is a way to get phone buyers to think about what could arguably be considered LG's flagship phone for the moment.
Thanks for the tip!

The issue is that the curved edges on the S6 actually make the phone look very nice. The curves on the G Flex 2 don't.

Feels better on your face when talking on the phone, more immersive experience when watching movies and most importantly the screen doesn't touch the ground when the phone falls (on flat surfaces), while the S6 edge is even more fragile than normal smart phones as falls on the side (the most often ones) will also result in the screen cracking.

feels better in the face oh my god what a function !! watching movies yeah we can say it makes it better but we can also say that the S6 edge makes calling, checking notification better and easier as well as knowing who is calling by the color of the edge which seems more important "and most importantly the screen doesn't touch the ground when the phone falls" it still breaks so it doesn't count as a function,https://www.youtube.com/watch?
c'mon man we all know that right now these flexible displays, edges and curves are just for showing off not for real functioning .. but at least it makes the s6 edge looks so sexy,but lg g flex .. meh ,,, not anywhere near aesthetics :/

"Let's make fun of a phone that not only beats our phone in almost every aspect, but will also sell at least 20x the number of units." -LG Seems legit.

Didn't stop Motorola and Samsung from resorting to the same childish tactics...

Mocking fun at a monopoly like windows is one thing , when its good for the customers when there s competition. but basing your whole marketing on aping the iPhone and then mocking fun at average customers, ya real classy , no wonder Apple is riding high while Samsung/motorola are struggling financially to comeback. Serves em right. Chinese are kicking their ass. I'd say when it comes to smart phones , Apple has been far more classy than Samsung. There never directly taken any direct shots at Samsung or Motorola or Htc but Samsung seems to focus more on bashing the iPhone at there presentations than even there own phones.. All I can say is what goes around comes around.
